If you're not up the bank you're at nothing... Stage 2 here in La Thuile @world_enduro is a classic one. A solid 10 minutes of slapping turns and hanging off the back

Anatomy of a Race Track // Vallnord, Andorra

5 years young and beaten to death. The local climate means massive rain storms and harsh winters take advantage of the smallest of rut and eroded it 1 metre deep. Soft dirt is scarce and for 2018s race track it was huge holes, big impacts and big commitment needed from top to bottom

If you've never been in person, Redbull TV show only the bottom half of the track. The top half is straight and fast...Fast Right at the start because of a 20+ second max effort pedal at 1900m altitude. This peaks the system.and has the valves bouncing as you hit the forst wooden bridge. From there it's massive commitment to high speed straights that are littered with features from tiny roots and rocks that easily catch you out to big hits and high lines. A brief respite with some jumps in the open before plunging back into the forest where we had a much needed new direction in the taping...Fast and straight. It causes lots of crashes early in practice as many riders attempts at a high line or poor memory from track walk caught them off guard....From here the tv picks up the riders and things get rockier and then progressively steeper in the woods.

The race can be turned knits head in the bottom 2 sectors but only won if you have solid, consistent top sectors

@lorisvergier put on a masterclass...one of the best runs we have seen in years. @tahneeseagrave executed a flawless strategy and capitalised on the agression of others

The impacts and g forces in Vallnord are massive a a well conditioned riders split times will show it.

Wild times

Anatomy of a Race Track // Val di Sole 2018

A modern classic. Tapped near identical to the desert dusty 2017 race track. 2018 saw a filthy wet start to what was already a blown out trail with much less dirt than previous years meaning riders could see all the tasty nasty features that littered every section of track. Instead of hidden sniper roots and rocks, riders could see every last trail detail that make line choice a delicate balance between direct and consistent. Repeatable or rowdy

Flat-out "park" from the start gate to the first woods it's here the terrain breaks and riders hit the first parcel of forest. Funneled into a supreme set of nibbly kinks into a brief and tight uphill left hander from there it is flat out, big hits, fast and crucial chnages if direction, rocks, roots and all slick as snot for Day 1 practice

After Passing under the gondola for a multi line steep section the track cuts steadily down and then across the hill. Bringing us to the point where the tv cameras pick up the action. From here things get steep and the impacts get much bigger. Big holes, big hits and come race day a tricky, dusty surface that meant braking points and direction where crucial to a succesful race run. Ploughing clean out of the forest at Mach 10 saw the end if the final sector of the course where the ladies race was won and many positions shuffled in the men's field. Straight forward high speed turns to the finish but execution totally altered by the accumulated fatigue of 4 mins of max intensity sprinkled over 3 days of practice

Inside versus out....out was a long way round & in had four variations. Watch until the end of clip 1 to see the current world cup leader go "out"... verdict @ben_cathro ? 😂

Ain't no day like race day. Where execution trumps all else

There are no easy wins. @tahneeseagrave executed

One of the really interesting wee sections from Val di Sole last week. The slowest speeds on track. Some clear choices and more subtle ones. With this section being so close to the end of the course. Simple and consistent was the best option given the fatigue present come race runs from here down.
