Bootleg Canyon DH POV with Wentz and AHK 7

Rocks, rocks, some broken rocks, a few more rocks, a drop or two, then a jump, some traversing, then rocks and dryness at Bootleg for the Mob n Mojave DH race.

That would make a rad World Cup venue. I’d
Imagine everything red bull would want for TV. Wide open fast sections, exposed sections, no restrictions on camera angles and a complete change of scenery from the alpine ski venues where 80% of world cups end up. I’d also think for the racers an interesting mix of terrain from the loamy, rooty forests of Europe.

Hauling. That terrain is brutal on rims / tires. I’d be curious to know what your tire / insert combo is

It looks to me like Austin is running DHF's, but Wentz is running Specialized Butcher DH's (as seen on IG). He also normally runs cushcore inserts so I imagine the same is the case here. Bootleg, like Vegas, is definitely a place for the meatiest rubber you can find.

Steve had a Butcher DH 2.3 rear with 27 PSI with a CushCore insert. Front was a Butcher BLCKDMND 2.6 also with a CushCore insert at 25 PSI. Austin had 26/30PSI Minions with CushCore.
