2012 Olympic mountain bike course: Video highlights

By James Costley-White in Bath, UK | Wednesday, March 30, 2011 9.10am

Last week we visited the mountain bike course for the London 2012 Olympic Games at Hadleigh Farm in Essex and published our first impressions, along with a video of the whole track.

Because the footage was sped up, it was difficult to see the scale of some of the rock obstacles and the descents were a bit of a blur, so we've produced a clip of edited highlights, which you can watch below.

We've focused on the downhills because you can see the climbs on the full course vid. Bear in mind that we used a bar-mounted camera, which tends to flatten the – admittedly far from mountainous – terrain.
