 I find the slow motion effect useful to see WHAT those guys are doing to be ABLE to jump up on the log walls with out totally busting their butts. (That is how I would be out their....getting my butt kicked  ;)  )

 This is from Barry's piece in the free online magazine Traction E-Rag;

Welcome to Red Bull Rocks and Logs for 2017 and we'll see all these endurocross riders in slow motion on the toughest track yet.
Red Bull Rocks & Logs 2017 is an endurocross competition which takes place on a technically challenging course filled with a variety of natural and man-made obstacles. #RedBull #RedBullRocksAndLogs
A head-to-head, knock-out format for Red Bull Rocks & Logs 2017 sees 204 riders take to the track divided by class in 2017 and a redesigned custom track built by pro rider Shane Cuthbertson brings tough and technical design elements from Enduros and Harescrambles across the globe to Wild Rose MX Park, in the heart of Calgary. And you get to see it all in slow motion here in Calgary, Canada!
