6:30 am we boarded the Gondola and received to the summit around 7. looking at the sun come over the mountains from this alpine location turned into simply what I dream of for a motorbike race. Let’s pick a quick stop so that you recognise that the web descent was 2200 meters these days and the climbing only totalled 1300 meters. That capability enjoyable, specially when it includes lift access. there is a bit alpine network on the desirable of the mountain that we have been despatched around before dropping into the timed descent for essentially 7km to the inn. From there it changed into extra descending lower back into the Moonraker network, the place we were placed on distinctive trails from day one. the paths have been rugged, it turned into extremely good.
beginning an XC race day with a gondola isn’t a nasty concept.
The alpine at Kicking Horse changed into breathtaking, literally.
completing one of those stages is a feat in itself.
The best part of these races is sharing it with others. The Santa Cruz boys are not only slaying the days’ ranges however additionally the timed descents.
Some good days, some injurious days. At this event that you can always count number on each person looking out for each and every other. On present day stage i used to be in a group of three and we blew turns, waited, then known as out points on the paths, and when one rider broke his chain, two us left our chainbreakers for him. there isn’t any unfriendly karma right here until you are trying to be an a*shole.
thank you Tomi for a good day of enjoying bikes.
Nicolas Cambus takes the commence men ST 3-day experience and Sheri Foster takes the originate ladies’s category. Carey Mark is at present leading the women’s forty+ on the midway mark, while Tomi Misser isn’t simplest main the forty+ guys but the complete race itself. There had been some major exchange usawithin the GC nowadays after a traumatic stage that took its toll on bikes and racers. Geoff Clark simply moved into the guys’s 50+ lead after Mimmo Futia slipped returned. The commence girls’s race had a new stage winner with Rebecca Beaumont but Jena Greaser nonetheless holds the overall. The start guys had a huge alternate up as the accurate 2 riders had mechanicals these days and unluckily that played to my stream into GC lead. Canyon R&D leads the eighty+ team, Santa Cruz Bicycles leads the launch men group, Farting Rainbows incredible identify leads the open women’s group, and Orbea Oiz leads the blended team class.
