Speedy chairlifts to the rescue. If you are in trouble, we wouldn't recommend this form of transport.


Not just grass on the lower slopes... long grass. There are many types to be appreciated before being shredded by cut spikes.

Sometimes you need to use track-walk as a training opportunity.


There are three main sections, an open ski run wooded section and an open ski run. Here we are exiting the trees to the final ski run section.


Is Neko taking a few tips from the fashion guru. Or is Jack taking Neko's bike for a joyride. You be the judge.

Loose over hard and Cut spike tires were the theme of the week.


Neko looking not too shabby with the shadow trooper look.


Ski runs slowly turned in MTB versions of moto ruts. something Neko is familiar with. Just gotta lean with it.




The boys will do their best to not use these today.


Neko on the hunt of the best lines.


Unfortunately Neko didn't make the show this week.

"Bummed on the results the past two weeks, but I’m not jumping to conclusions. Just had 2 bad runs during qualifying and missed the mark. I have more in me and excited for the second half of the season.”
- Neko Mulally

Ruts didn't take long to develop. Always fun watching Jack slap some ruts.

“The crowd was crazy today, love a French World Cup! Disappointed with 23rd. Made a big mistake up top, but not too far off, and feel like I’m riding good again."
- Jack Moir

“After Aaron’s injuries last weekend in Vallnord, I think it let the air out of sails for a bit. But once we sent Aaron home to get assessed and recover, our team refocused on the task at hand, and it was off to Les Gets. Everyone was looking forward to return of Les Gets on the World Cup, and certainly did not disappoint. What an amazing turn out of spectators, as well as finish to the race! I would say the energy rivalled Fort William World Cup. Everyone now has a couple weekend’s off, then we once again gather in Europe for Val di Sole and Lenzerheide World Cups.”
- Todd Schumlick
