When you get an Mx National track like Appin the riders know that when it comes down to it their lap times are going to be very close. Because of the nature of the soil at Appin it always forms up with some long deep ruts where a race can be won or lost.

The pro riders know how important it is to nail these ruts perfectly lap after lap so they put a lot of time and effort into their technique work so ruts like these are a little easier to attack.
