    Champery Worldcup - it's ON!

    If you have somehow missed the return of the WC to this legendary track, now's the time to get stuck in! The race is on Saturday this weekend, not Sunday BTW (on Freecaster of course! )

    Lots of great video up already on Vital and Dirt, but this course walk (with the builder) takes the radness prize so far:

    <object width="480" height="270"><param name="movie" value="http://play.freecaster.com/player/FCPlayer.swf?id=Y0lEPTEwMTI2MDUmYXBJRD0xMDAwMDA2"/><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed src="http://play.freecaster.com/player/FCPlayer.swf?id=Y0lEPTEwMTI2MDUmYXBJRD0xMDAwMDA2" width="480" height="270" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowFullScreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" /></object>

    That's some pretty epic stuff there...

    Hope the track dries up enough, the Alps got proper soaked in the last 24 hours. And I reckon we might have a new winner tomorrow...

    WOW! That track is really something. Like tacubaya said, it's downright scary!

    So bummed Sam's not racing, was looking forward to watching him shred this to bits. Not that the others are doing a bad job, but Sam is a bit unique on this kind of track...

    Also too bad Rach didn't make it in the womens, another possible 10 sec + victory margin for her here I would have thought...

    Really cool job on the track build. Those jumps are not small on a normal track, I can't even imagine what they must be like in the middle of all this steepness and trees...scary is the right word. Or f*cking impossible might be the other way to describe it.

    What happened to Rach Atherton? Also I will say that this track freaks me out. It's crazy to see pros even brake to the point of almost stopping for those steeps.

    Shoulder dislocation I think. She will not compete until World Champs.

    Gee and Minnaar made it look easy, but I felt sorry for the riders trying to get through that slop. Didn't look fun.
