For a little change from rides between pros for his vlog on Youtube. CG thought is would be fun to take a beginner like me and comment what I do in a run of Vallnord Bike Park. To make it a little more challenging, he picked the most difficult track of all : his track (former World Cup track 2008 & 2009.

Over 150 riders showing you 1 track
This is the only edit showing the entire Vallnord World Cup 2016 track.
My goal while filming and editing the video was to walk you through the entire course from the spectator point of view.
From one rider to the next, you are taken down the most radical track of the downhill world cup circuit.
The final leg of the 2016 World Cup will be full of suspens for the men. Can Danny Hart steal the title from Aaron Gwin ?
From what I saw, Gwin looked re...

I couldn't resist checking out the changes on the World Cup course of Vallnord 2016, final leg of the UCI Downhill World Cup.
The crew worked hard on the track, but everything is bone dry.
Thus, I'm not sure the course will last long before becoming a breaking bumps and blown out corners fiesta.

In 2015 the Blue Commencal was born, starting from Pal Station to end at La Massana.
It was the first of its kind in Vallnord, usually known for steep, technical and rough terrain, aimed at downhill racing like the UCI World Cup or downhill marathon mountain bike races like Maxiavalanche. The Blue Commencal track was the first real flow track in Vallnord, in the spirit of a giant BMX track.
The track was built by Pierre Edouard Ferry aka was back this year in Vallnord Bike Park, in order to...

Mountain of Pal (location of Vallnord Bike Park) owns an infinity of trails.
Riding a mix of Bobby, Maxi Bueno and Sam Track is the most challenging downhill track in the area.
However, it's not part of the official Vallnord Bike Park circuit.
Ride it at your own risks.

It's probably the wildest scene in mountain biking : 700 riders huge Mass Start on the snow.
Here is Mountain Of Hell 2016 in Les 2 Alpes.
I qualified on line 12, and finished 30th in Master 2 in 52:23:72
I was still putting on my gloves when the race started, but I went full gas not touching the brakes until the end where I realized my rear brake was not working. The lever was very hard, almost impossible to pull.
Oh well, a good sliding on the snow is always a safe and easy way to sto...

I didn't know part of the trail was missing on this section.
Not enough speed to hope for a happy outcome; thus, I decided to throw down the bike and grab the opposite side with my fists.

The trail is really various with wide open tracks where you can go full speed, mixed with steep singltracks full of roots and rocks.
The ride is about 10km long. Climb is 488m D+ and descent is 378 D-

Here is a full track preview of the Downhill race for the 2015 Mountain Bike World Championship at Vallnord Bike Park in Andorra.
Greg Minnaar pinned down the best time of the timed session (no qualifications for downhill during the MTB World Championship).
It rained very hard for the first two days of practice, but finally the sun shined on.
However, the track was still sketchy.
The World Cup track at Vallnord Bike Park is very steep and natural with plenty of rocks and roots. First day...

2015 Mountain Bike World Championship take place at Vallnord Bike Park in Andorra.
Video is raw footage of first half of the track. I got there late, and didn't have time to go all the way down before the end of practice.
Too bad because the second half is really gnarly. It's super steep and rain has totally destroyed the track.
