Team BikeRadar success in Canada
By Will Longden | Monday, August 4, 2008 11.35am
Team BikeRadar have been in Canada for two weeks now, this weekend saw us heading to Bromont near Montreal for the World Cup race. Now when I was at school, scientists were saying we would have ‘global warming’, fancy telling everyone it was going to get hotter…
If they’d told us it was going to rain and flood everywhere or called it ‘Global Raining’ maybe we would have paid a little more attention! What am I going on about? Well it’s rained here in Canada every day for two weeks straight, we’ve spent as much time at the hosepipe and the washing machine as we have on the hill!
Bromont is a venue that has been on the international calendar before, hosting the World Champs in 1992 and a World Cup nine years ago. Memories of those tracks stayed with me and I wasn’t surprised to see steep technical sections mixed up with flowing wood sections and a few big drops thrown in for good measure.
The track looked really good fun to ride as we walked it on Friday. It was fun to ride, but it was also very, very tough for all the riders after the heavy rain added its own special features to the track.
