I love how technical that track is, more technical than some enduro tracks in other parts of the world

Riding with the computer twisted is like someone driving with their blinker on for me....

I was twitching seeing that, full on tick

almost as bad as moto with bent handguards. Bars might be straight but my riding definitely ain't

Jesus, it looks like they routed some of the course through the downhill run! To do those sections at race pace without faltering on an XC bike shows how unreal the skills of these athletes really are.

Yeah I was bummed when I heard they took out the Beatrice section but there's still pleeeeeenty of tech. Hope Nino's shoulder is feeling up to it!

I was holding off any judgement concerning the removal of "Beatrice" until I saw a good preview of it.
While I still think they should have left it in the rest of the new course looks good and I'd love to take a few laps on it myself.

That computer! haha

Les Québécois know whats up, that track looks sick. Callise une sentier difficile et rocheux!
(Aug 5, 2022 at 7:55)
So, can the general public ride the WC course in the days after the race? Because I'd drive to MSA for that.
(Aug 5, 2022 at 13:56)
I'm a XC only guy, and I would never ride that on an XC bike. That's a 130-150mm bike trail and one that puts down a lot of traction. Those riders are nuts and very skilled.
(Aug 5, 2022 at 2:59)
The technical sections are ✌
(Aug 5, 2022 at 6:39)
That actually looks like a fun loop or XC course even if one was not racing.
(Aug 5, 2022 at 5:28)
I'm disappointed that La Beatrice is not in because every now and then you get a brave person overtaking using the A line. And that's what we love to see.
(Aug 5, 2022 at 7:35)
Plus Beatrice and the climb right before had some nice continuous camera coverage. Track still looks great though, MSA never disappoints.
(Aug 5, 2022 at 6:33)
MSA is such an awesome course. Glad it's back on the schedule.

They need to limit slah tone down races. There way to short and way to tecnical.
(Aug 5, 2022 at 7:45)
No such thing as too technical. XC racing should be just as much about bike handling at the limit as overall fitness. This isn't a triathlon.
(Aug 5, 2022 at 8:52)
: 100% agreed. I do wonder if given the popularity of back country events, we'll see a return to long races at the highest levels of XC. Was thinking back to the times I raced at Snowshoe in the early 2000s when we had a long technical descent, followed by singletrack around the lake, then a long climb back up. The pros I think were doing 3 laps in just over 2 hours.

: IMPO, they won't return XCO to those kind of races but you may see some shorter XCM races of that nature.
