    I though the UCI banned them after Schumacher axed himself.
    Seems under the visor is the new location of choice. No idea on legalities re UCI.

    Here's a couple to get you started:

    Not the dh, but I do enjoy a bit of 4x. Fucked if I can say where the rock garden is!

    Are you trying to detract from Stephen Bradbury's victory at the highest level of competition?

    His face still pops up a lot in the snow world next to a shining gold medal.

    The last straight before the flat right hand turn to the finish, not sure if you can replay the live feed, but the camera angle showed it slightly better there. It had what looked like a much faster line on the left but not many riders took it, don't know why.

    Here it is in Caroline's helmet cam

    I have begun and I shall not rest until I have eradicated hope from the Earth.
    Think on this and be dismayed.

    the 4x looked fairly smooth, on the whole.
    There was a little bit of stony ground visible for a split second. maybe that was the 'rock garden'

    Yeah, it just looked like a big downhill BMX track. Sanitized rubbish. Not like the 4X I remember watching back in the day, where you were basically taking your life into your hands every time you raced.
    Some people are like Slinkies. They serve no useful purpose, but they're fun to push down the stairs.

    Are you thinking dual/duel compressor no holds barred style racing?

    I tried to find some old footage on YouTube, but failed. I used to love the full contact aggressive style that was the norm back in the day!

    A lot of the 4x footage I found was definitely on rougher tracks.

    How did you get such a short answer to work? Did all those spaces counts as Characters?

    Yeah, that's the stuff I'm talking about. Like roller derby on bikes. Over rocks.
