    He kept saying “he’s so fast,” but he was almost always in sight. The cameraman can ride as well.

    Those were sweet trails.

    Very excellent trails, and even better riders. Great fun to watch .... I wouldn't even get through that first root-garden patch .... the guy either knows every line or picks the best lines instantly.

    No freaking way I’m doing THAT on a bike. Sheesh.
    Kinda fun to watch though.

    I wouldn't be scared ..... walking my bike along those trails. I simply would not ride them.

    Incredibly narrow and technical, blind, sharp turns with huge exposure, just about zero margin for error. Not my thing at all.

    The camera guy is very entertaining .... but he rides the same stuff as Nino Schurter, almost as fast, while talking ....

    Very entertaining videos, but each one is just more stuff I cannot, could not ever, and really would not want much to even be able to do on a bike. The odds of failure are too high, and adrenaline doesn't get me high enough.

    It does kind of make me want to ride some absolutely tame trails .... sadly the parks are closed out here right now.
