Very, very nice. Good find, Max, thanks!

Yah, the practice thing and having a sponsor that can replace the stuff that breaks when it does. It's always easier to push through the learning curve on someone else' dime.
That and a lot of raw talent. Can't diminish the ability the woman has.

She's on the GS trophy team and could out ride most on this forum. No luck required, just a lot of practice and plenty of skill.

As a rider of very average skill, I may be too easily impressed, but that riding is amazing. And watching this, I'd say it is a textbook case of the value of, 'look where you want to go'. That is such an important technique and one of the hardest things for me to do, esp in low speed tight turns (not that 'low speed' is really applicable in this vid).

I've watched this several times and I'm still telling myself, out loud, 'look where you want to go'.

I love it at the end of the video when she says, It's not the boss of me, I am the boss of it.
