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.
The track builders have added in their own rock gardens over the years to make things a bit more challenging
Yep, still raining. Emyr Davies. Always prepared
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.
They’ve been good enough to number the rocks.
This guy. Legend.
Emyr’s looking concerned. We reckon other will share that feeling this weekend if the rain continues to fall.
Another of those hand built rock gardens.
Nothing handbuilt about those tree stumps
There’s definitely clean line through there, but it almost certainly won’t be the fastest. Fortune favours the brave.
Bike Park or not Leogang is still a tough old track to conquer.
There will be some burning lungs once this is in sight.
