Team BikeRadar at the MTB World Cup, Bromont - Day One
After walking the track yesterday I was really excited – really steep and rocky with a gnarly 20 foot step down at the top. The bottom section is littered with bermed turns and drops leading to a big double to finish.
With rain and thunderstorms being on and off most of the day practice got off to a slow start, it was delayed by two hours because the course had been ruined by the rain. The chairlift is really fast with the course only being short (I think around 2.40 long) you can get loads of runs in really quickly.
I did four runs today and really enjoyed riding the track, it was blowing out in a few places, getting all rutted up due to the rain, hopefully there will be some course repairs done tonight ready for practice tomorrow.
4X practice was this evening. Will managed two runs then it was cancelled due to another huge thunderstorm.
