Gwin always makes me think back to the year Doug Henry & Travis Pastrana came to Mt. Snow. 30+ seconds over the rest of 30+ age group on a Karpiel with Gazzalodis & Avalanche shocks. Henry just went off.
Pastrana double flatted boosting to flat past the finish kicker in slalom. They destroyed.

Vital Raw + Claudio Course Preview + Wyn TV. I CAN'T EVEN. THIS IS THE BEST VIDEO CONTENT EVER.

Its a toss up between Claudio's track previews and vital's RAW for me. Still my heart leapt when i saw the RAW was up. Great Job Vital.

Also, did anyone else think Gwin was noticeably faster through the whoops?

YEA.. I had to rewind and watch him through the whoops twice.. So much faster than the rest and smooth...

Funny that he's pretty much the only one not hitting the step-down coming into that section.
He just pumps and rolls and comes into the whoops at mach turkey.
Sometimes it's not the manliest or straightest line that's the fastest.

Same thing with that weird humpy section at the end - he gets light on the face of the lip then pumps the bejeesus out of the transition. Looked way faster than all the guys checking up and ten gapping...

My b. I thought you meant the other whoops section about halfway through the vid where he also managed to pick up speed in a section designed to slow you down, lol.
