Leogang World Cup 2016 – Rideitout Trackwalk

A very different track to last weeks Fort William and this weekend very different weather. It’s wet and it’s muddy. It’s going to be tough. Track walk time with Ems & Thomas

It’s muddy this weekend and it looks to remain that way. More rain to come.

IMAG1153

The track builders have added in their own rock gardens over the years to make things a bit more challenging

IMAG1155

Yep, still raining. Emyr Davies. Always prepared

IMAG1156

It may have the tag bike park, but that doesn’t make it any less steep.

Some superb work with the chainsaw, marking out previous Leogang World Cup winners

Definitely no grip here and off camber to boot.

IMAG1157

They’ve been good enough to number the rocks.

IMAG1165

This guy. Legend.

IMAG1178

Emyr’s looking concerned. We reckon other will share that feeling this weekend if the rain continues to fall.

IMAG1170

Another of those hand built rock gardens.

IMAG1171

Nothing handbuilt about those tree stumps

IMAG1174

There’s definitely clean line through there, but it almost certainly won’t be the fastest. Fortune favours the brave.

IMAG1172

Bike Park or not Leogang is still a tough old track to conquer.

IMAG1181

There will be some burning lungs once this is in sight.
