Mt.7 is one hell of a ride and this year will be no exception to the rule, as top pros from around the world will be coming to compete. For a little taste of what it's about, here is a video from the race a couple of years back.

Canada Cup #2 – Tremblant, QC -DH Report Canada Cup #2 – Tremblant, QC -DH Report
Mt. Tremblant hosted round 2 of the Canada Cup downhill circuit on May 29th. The week leading up to the race saw heavy showers and the track was slick mud from summit to finish. Race day was super sunny and warm, but before the race the gondola broke down leading to a one hour delay followed by a heavy thunder and rain storm that lead to half the pro men racing on a dry track and half racing in heavy rain and slick conditions.

Canada Cup Race Report – Bromont, Quebec - Changing of the Guard? Canada Cup Race Report – Bromont, Quebec - Changing of the Guard?
May 22nd marked the season opener for the Canadian National DH series. The event was held at Bromont, Quebec which is one of the premier mountain bike destinations in Canada with a lift accessed bike park that can be compared to Whistler in terms of its technical and varied mountain bike trails. The weekend saw close to 500 riders on the mountain with the combination of racers and park riders.

As with past seasons, the race track was demanding. This year we raced on a new course that featured 5 sections of difficult single track and 5 sections of fire road that required all out sprinting, there was no rest to be had and at nearly 5 minutes long the riders fitness and winter preparation was really tested.

These bikes take a beating with gusto, and can handle anything over-confident renters throw at them.
