Course Preview: UCI World Cup Round 5, Mont-Sainte-Anne

You can't keep a good man down. Despite crashing on this very track last year, Claudio Caluori is back on the bike for our preview of a slightly reformatted Mont-Sainte-Anne course for 2014.

As ever, expect some enlightened commentary and the odd swear word from the Gstaad Scott team manager.

Be sure to keep in touch with all of Claudio's crazy goings on on Facebook and Twitter. Tune in to redbull.com/bike on Saturday August 2nd to find out who comes out on top in Canada.

 This track looks bloody amazing ! If I had to pick one WC to ride I think this would be it , very much doubt I have the fitness to get down in one go tho !
  • + 6
 Yeah, it looks amazing. Never thought much of it before, but seeing it from this view is revealing! I'd love to ride that track!

 c'est incroyable le travail de GESTEV, c'Est eu qui organise la coupe du monde depuis 1996, ils ont engagé une équipe de diiger 3-4 semaines plein temps pour remettre la track digne d'une coupe du monde
merci Gestev

 Its looks damn fast

 No one else notice the guy mooning at the start?
  • + 6
 Yeah, Claudio sees it, and mentions something about "we have a mooner" as he goes by.
  • + 7
 This new track has interesting lines. At first, I was afraid that they would remove too much of the difficulties from the track but after seeing Claudio riding it, I feel they've kept the best parts and added some (needed) refresh with more speed and a few artificial features that will make the race even more interesting and "new school". Living nearby, I've been riding at MSA for years and following many WC there and I think GESTEV are still leaders when it comes to organization and race track design. Good job, guys and, as usual, Claudio is such a "gentleman rider". Love you! Smile

 Man... I love where I ride these days but I totally miss the rock gnar of the North East. Thanks for making me feel homesick, Claudio. Jerk.
  • + 7
 I still feel like if you can ride North East Rock, you can ride anywhere.

 LOL

 I always hear the same thing from the Sousth-West guys: "If you can ride that loose sand you can ride anywhere"
  • + 2
 moon dust is particularly tricky for sure, but the wet roots and rocks of places like MSA, Bromont, Mount Snow, Whiteface, etc get you scared real quick Wink

 the stoke is so high.
"why did that happen? doesn't matter, pin it again!"
  • + 8
 Hahahaha claudio you crazy mother fucker

 Claudio is by far my favorite commentator and course previewer, so entertaining to watch and a skilled and awesome rider. how he is able to do commentary the WHOLE time he is rocketing down world cup courses without getting heavily winded is incredible, keep up to great work. Salute
