Speaking after the race, Bruni said, "New country, new trails, new people and I loved everything. The people are all super-friendly, they all welcomed me, congratulated me for the season and becoming World Champ and I really felt good vibes all weekend. At the race I was a bit scared. I didn’t know if they were going to be wild or aggressive, I laid off especially at the start so Gee and Colin just went faster than me, so I was a bit stuck in traffic. People were just racing big time, it was good fun and I didn’t crash. I didn’t see many people just killing themselves, it was a really good day and really good fun on the hill."

 I'd imagine every single guy competing in the event is a competent bike handler so it's amazing and humiliating to see just how crazy fast a top pro is, just effortlessly quicker on any line he went on

 As always, it's hard to tell but the track is really quite gnarly in real life. Pretty steep and techy in places. And so much fun. Look forward to it every year.. best day on the bike.

 @belfastbiker: Actually I was surprised at how fast those "regular dudes" are, that course is legit. I would love to participate in this

 I was thinking the same thing. Anyone entering Foxhunt is, as you said, very competent on a bike, yet gets blown away by Loic when he decides to put the power down. So impressive.

 Even on parts where there is no line (looked like he was riding the ridge between two), it was so effortless and fast. I love watching these POVs, especially the back shots showing all the carnage. What a nutty event.

 @CF519: I wouldn't say that.. I heard a few people saying that weekend that they'd never ridden a mountain bike before the foxhunt having bought all the gear the week before...

 @ArchieDH: hahahaha, I cannot imagine a more stupid idea for those people.

 He caused at least 4/5 crashes haha

 ...in the most polite way possible

 He left a trail of destruction in his wake for sure!

 Bruni, a true class act and Legend.. even finds time to fist bump his mate halfway down and to also holor at his dad in French! haha
  • + 8
 Class Act in deed: asks the guys on the ground if they are OK!!!

 2.57....World Champ goes past and you just "fall off" ....the power of the Frog

 I think people were just blinded by his majesty, they just got flashbanged by the world champ!

 @ctd07: This. I'm sure i would have crashed as well if he passed me like he passed some of those guys.

This guy is completely bonkers!!

 Staring at the "SuperBruni" written on his bum.

 That line at 2:05... and the carnage he left in his wake Big Grin !
  • + 12
 The lines he took were amazing. Shows how pros see a lot of options on the trail. Some of the passes were tight and he was able to pass riders without even touching them. Great footage!
  • + 5
 Except the dozen he touched / killed...
  • + 2
 @patpero: Rubbin' is racin'...but yeah.
  • + 3
 @patpero: yeah perhaps in those early parts where whole bunch of racers were stuck at some point. But when it got very fast and technical where pushing the other rider would be downright dangerous, i thought he passed them clean. And it's pretty amazing to watch Smile

 shows how quick they are! the only reason they don't catch em all, is they are blocked almost the entire way down. Looks like a fun event.
  • + 3
 Best moments: line change at 2:08 so impressive it causes a racer to forget how to ride a bike,

Cat and mouse from 2:30-2:50, that guy was doing very well in holding off the world champ,

Finally guy gets passed in the sprint at 5:06, realizes it’s Bruni and is all “I ain’t even mad”.
  • + 6
 haha, bruni was taking no prisoners there! that trail actually looks real good too.

 At least, you can say that you hung up with the reigning World Champ! Good job, boys! Smile
  • + 10
 No with. "You hung up the reigning world champ" is more accurate Big Grin
  • + 2
 @Primoz: LOL! That's a good one.
  • + 3
 That was just so sick. Sneaky lines and a few slams, but overall such a friendly atmosphere. I wish I could ride like this! Big Grin

 They crumble in the misted whorls of his slipstream.

 What I have learnt from this is that if you wear blue trousers or shorts you will crash.
  • + 1
 yep the take away from this video is to never wear blue pants or shorts!

 Casually passing people in the air, no big deal.
  • + 4
 Really puts things into perspective.

 Bruni for Pope.

 I feel bad for the guy who went down at 0:36. So many bikes behind him.
  • + 4
 on the bridge, he got hit in the head by two riders... still came in 5th though!
  • + 2
 ...at least there was glorying getting run over. The guy in the bar pit at 1:00 spontaneously crumbles for no apparent reason other than being passed?
  • + 2
 @Dave5555: That would be Giant Factory Rider Jacob Dickson!
