Loic Bruni on the rock drop on A-Line.
Troy Brosnan had to take a quick break to cut down some cardboard on the side of the track.
Up top of the course, rumor had it that if anyone was going to dominate on a DH bike, it would be Sik Mik. First finisher on a full fledged DH rig. Mick isn't a stranger to pumping the big bike around. Just wait until World at Pietermaritzburg.
Not everyone was scrubbing or whipping the hits on A-line. Some riders were just keeping it low and fast.
But more than a few riders were doing anything but staying low.
Adam "make me famous" Ransausage put down the best combo's consisting of the following: Massive whip on the first jump, Nac Nac on the second and full fledged bar hump on the last. Bonus points all the way.

Jill Kintner on fire crushing the women's field. 1 race down, three to go.
And the crowd goes wild... Smith out in front, shredding the brand new carbon Troy to second consecutive Canadian victory.
Couldn't ask for a better day to launch the Devinci Troy 650B Carbon.
Mustache power for the win. Fresh of his MSA win, Stevie showed his home crowd his finest.
