When it's windy enough that you can do a stalled double* (around 1:14)

Edit: Their "news cut" from yesterday: https://www.redbullcontentpool.com/international/AP-1YN8CUXT52111 (full screen is amazing)

* Double forward loop where the rider waits to begin the rotations later in the jump rather than from the outset. Given the time it takes to rotate twice, you have to be really, really high.

They do have plenty of wind over there on the British Isles. No jumps but plenty of wind and speed.

There is no off season.
