Mont St. Anne World Cup!

So my younger brother, sister, and I have been obsessing for the past year over a number of videos documenting the World Cup series of downhill mountain bike racing, and we finally got to attend one of the races. More info about the races can be found here:

UCI World Cup Site

Basically, I knew these guys would be fast, but I had no idea how fast. I was scared just standing on the side, and the skill and fitness that they showed was truly inspiring. I would love to see kayaking receive the level of recognition and support that downhill gets. I watched two of my favourite racers take the Downhill and 4 Cross titles, Sam Hill and Jared Graves, respectively. Sam left no room for doubt beating Steve Peat by 4 seconds.

Check out these pics of the action:

Filip Polc.


Steve Smith from Van Island!! Such a sick rider and Canada's top finisher.


Brendan Fairclough


Steve Peat, 2nd.


The podium. Aaron Gwinn in 3rd is the highest US finisher in years. Yeahhh.


Syndicate V10s... so beautiful.

From there it was on to a sick day of riding at Bromont where we didn't take a single picture. Sorry! It was awesome though. Here's a headcam video of my favourite trail, first trail on the vid:

Peace.
