Video: Laurie Greenland & Jackson Goldstone's Leogang Course Preview

Jun 9, 2022
by Ed Spratt  

bigquotesThe downhill track in Austria had established itself firmly as a "bike park" race. However, in recent years, the introduction of a new woods section towards the bottom has allowed for more natural and technical riding. As the rain continues to fall, will this be the crux of Saturday's final?

Most of the course is out in the open, with woods covering the latter of the track. Vali's Hölle, an extremely steep and technically demanding section in the woods, has caught many a rider out since it was included as part of the 2020 World Championships track and stayed there for the World Cup in 2021.

We jump onboard with the Santa Cruz Syndicates very own Laurie Greenland and Jackson Goldstone for a course preview to see what the riders think of the 2022 layout.

 The only way I could get thru the woods section is basically like the crazies charging down the hill in that Gloucester cheese wheel chase: ass over tea kettle

Both those boys are space ninjas.

 Watching Jackson through the trees he almost seemed like a skier doing jump turns.

 Assegai with the transition knobs cut off, pretty interesting. I have no idea how they ride that fast in those conditions, especially any drops in the woods.

 Boggles the mind in weather like that. That woods section at the end would have taken both collarbones for sure. Wow!
