bigquotesDay 1 here in Leogang was quite the handful. Crashes, mud and wild times. So stoked to be back at the races and with the best crew. Leogang Bike Park has put on quite the track for us. Brendan Fairclough

Laurie Greenland and Jackson Goldstone POV

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.

 BK's GoPro cutting out all the time is exactly why I will never buy one again. Every one I have owned has done this. How they haven't fix this by now I mad.
