  • Global Ranking

2013 French part of the UCI DH World Cup, starts very steep, very rocky, with some man made wooden jumps that just drop off, as well as some long fast dirt tables. It then narrows onto a very fast smooth dash across the valley, as it moves back onto some easier surfaces similar to the first section. Lastly it gets very hard, muddy, drops, trees and roots, you have to go fast to be able to ride it comfortably. After this you explode out of the forest towards the giant kicker and drop down into the finishing slope.
