Video: Steve Peat's POV Run of the Legendary Champery World Champs Track

bigquotesRemember THAT race?
We're a few years on now, but the track still remains 'almost' in its original glory, with the only the bottom section being unaccessible these days.

Still steep, fast and rowdy, let Steve Peat give you a good old flashback to Champery 09 as he follows fellow Santa Cruz Bicycles rider Romain Paulhan for a hotlap, one sunny day in May.

 Helmet cams ridden by pros make it look so easy.

I fumbled my way down this course years ago and at no point did I enjoy myself. I like steep stuff but that course terrified me!

It’s nice to see it being ridden properly

 So much work gone into the corners on this track, much more support than there used to be!

 @ddmonkey: It does appear a lot smoother than many years ago, but it could just be Peaty making it look simples

 @ddmonkey: It has been improved since 2016, but some parts are still tricky.

 Same as that bro. 5 years ago, "I got down it" is all that I say of it. Roasted a disc in the process.

 The Valais region applied for the 2025 world championships and the UCI decided last year that the region will host all seven world champs disciplines: Which means that in 2025 it is very likely that we're going to see a world champs at Champéry again. We might even see the track in the world cup before, if they'll do a final test of the event.

 Still lightning quick in the corners... Just hauling back time every corner. Made even more amazing given he's such a big unit
