The latest round of the Mountain Bike World Cup took place in Mont-St-Anne Canada over the weekend, and Team BikeRadar’s Marc Beaumont, Will Longden and Neil Donoghue were there. Marc and Neil were competing in the elite men’s downhill while Will took part in the elite men’s 4X competition.
This is what Marc said before the downhill finals:
“Practice was seven hours today, so you could get loads of runs in if you wanted. It's really easy to wear yourself out with it being such a long physical track. I made a mellow start turning up at the pits about 10.15 am, where Will had managed to get two runs in already!
I did my first run with Will, it was cool we checked out a few lines, the course was drying out although it had poured all night had not made too much difference.”
