 Huge props to the track builders in Val di Sole, that is so much work. The riders spoke, and they listened.

Now, prepare for the "boring" comments...

I think it still looks like a beast of a track

 This is exactly the kind of change the DH tracks need. Put corners in to add challenge and slow riders down naturally. It's safer, requires more skill, looks better, and is more interesting for viewers watching line choice.

 I hope they added the dirt to fell the holes before winter so it had time to bed in. If it's fresher, it's not gonna last long and the track will be back to its dedastrous state late it was last year

Rachel could have rolled down that at 75% and grabbed some extra points.

 Some bits will be slowed down but some bits are going to be filthy fast with the smoothness. The trick to making the sport slower isn't in the tracks it's in the bikes, they're just so fast these days that they can do everything at warp speed.

 Great track walk vid! Lets see how the track developes. My bet is on a lot ruts and deep holes as the dirt was "very soft" according to Stefan. So i bet it hasnt been bedded in all to well.

Either way - track looks sicker than usual (not just full on carnage) and will be interesting to see who takes this slower type of track as the previous venues this year has been all fall line full speed type of courses. Bet we will see a change in the top 10 for sure.
