    That's awesome. Nice to see a course where good descenders get an advantage.

    They should make a rule that when people walk decents, they should yield the right of way.

    Yup, rider up should clear the way, course it could get a little tight might need some refs.

    Probably have to build a bail out where the walkers go after dismount, and then they have to walk to the remount area.

    Check out my SportTracks plugins for some training aid software.

    Thanks!
    Let's hope we finally get a dry race for round #6 in St-Félicien. Every year the track is incredibly amazing there too, they say it's "manicured to perfection". I'll try to catch a race video again, but since it's a Canada Cup that week-end I might not be able to shoot. Last time in Baie-St-Paul an UCI official told me to remove the cam. Apparently it's against the UCI rules to record awesomeness, I don't know why.

    Great race vid. Do you have a battery extender on the go-pro? I only got 45 min last race I video'ed.

    That is what I like to see for a race course. There are hard tech sections. room for passing. some a/b line options.
    Oh sh!+ just force upgraded to cat1. Now what?
    Best thing about an ultra marathon? I just get to ride my bike for X hours!

    No, just the normal battery pack that comes with the GoPro HD. It can record about 2 hours in R4 960p mode.
