The weather stayed pretty dry and clear all day for DH practice but it started lashing down as the 4X’ers rolled into the gate.
There’s been a few changes to the track since last year which made for some pretty interesting spectating. The main one is an all new rock section that bottle-necks riders through a steep rock garden. You’ve got a choice of either rolling the rocks or doubling the lot and treating it like a road gap. The shit weather and slick rocks meant that most people were taking it pretty easy and keeping their noses clean for the main event.
