Makken helped out getting the course dialed.

bigquotesFor the second year in a row I've hosted the sender session during the Hillbilly HuckFEST Festival. We have spent a month fixing the course from the winter and the flow is back to high speed. The feedback from the riders has been all positive and that makes me real proud. I think we are in for a treat this year and I am looking forward to seeing all the boys shred on and off their bikes in the Norwegian mountains.

 Shame that these lads have had to move away from the FMB to ride big fucking jumps. FMB has followed the UCI DH in taming down everything to insurance friendly bike park events

 erm...dunno...leogang of course has the rep of being too bike parkey and would have to agree...but then there are tracks like fort william and Val di sole...tracks that I don't anybody could call bike parkey...even cairns this year...pretty insane...no schladming or champery true...

 Cairns was only insane due to the weather and every single rider said Fort William was easier than ever as all the holes had been filled in. I love DH and the courses are well out of my comfort zone when ridden at pro speed but I want to see the elite in every discipline pushed to there limits

 Cairns was gonna be mental no matter what. Was a super long track, filled with nasty rocks and roots...the rain just made it super ill.

As for Ft. William...well...they gotta fill in the holes sometime and by the time the top 20men in the finals came around there were holes all over the place.

Then there's the new Vallnord--pretty damn wicked and steep with big ass rocks and holes and dust everywhere.

So...dunno...everybody has their taste--for me personally, which nobody gives a crap about (hah!), I would rather see the riders make it down in one piece. Doesn't mean everything has to be a bike park (and they aren't) but it also doesn't mean they have to be in Virgin, Utah either. FMB gots to have something, right? These men and women launch themselves down the mountain waaaaay faster than mere mortals can dream...and while Champery is awesome and insanely steep and technical...I'd rather see smiling faces at the bottom of Pietermaritzburg and Leogang...than another Cam Cole being helicoptered out of Andorra or Taylor Vernon out of Val di Sole.

These folk gonna go fast. And if the track is easier...they just gonna go faster...
