 Cool. I hope they do. I love having such an important race/series decided on the EAST coast. It was said that the Europeans have , really liked Diablo's Us Open course (even though the crowds werent really there) . I hope they feel the same about Windham,NY. Good luck Windham!!!

 Well, you (the pink bike crowd) and I will all have to wait and see how the WC riders feel about the courses. There opinions will be the only ones whom matter, not the armchair quarterbacks whom sit at keyboards and speculate. I'm betting they love them. Hope to see you all there next week. E

 I dunno why you guys are pissed off. The 4X track looks awesome, and really different for once, and the downhill looks pretty fun. It'll be 2 interresting races, especially the battle Gee/Greg

 PB comments are not about puppies , ice cream and rainbows. It's about ramped up rhetoric and arm chair negativitey. You gonna have to "positively" armor up some thicker skin if your gonna dangle your naked, non rock hardend vidie out for the PB crowd to view. It's the most important race of the year. These comments are going to be nothing like the ones you can expect if the course doesnt deliver the "bang." Because honestly , Windham looks like it bit off more than it can chew.

 It's a little disheartening that the vid seems to be a disclaimer for what possibly may be a lame course by WC stanards. They should not be driving home the fact that the course is being managed by guys with other full time jobs. It's almost like he is preparing us for a shitty course. Either that or he is fishing for compliments. This is the FINALS of the 2010 Worldcup. The most important race of the series top five points leaders . It's not important what your obstacles are as designers. Just tell us that this race weekend is going to blow everyones effin minds. SELL IT...OWN IT!!!!

 To all you negative jerks whom spew your opinion of the track after watching a video, if you havn't ridden it, you are simply expressing a totally unjustified opinion off what this track offers. Fast, flowy , steep and fun as hell ! 45 foot rode gaps you will never do ! I have ridden it along with some of local (Northeast pros and experts) and we all agree , it is definately WC worthy. You should know by now, videos dont do terrain justice ! Do not judge this track by past Windham experiences, most of it is totaly new . A finish line kicker just got added that propels the WC riders 40 to 50 feet right before the finish line ! The race the world course is fun as hell too ! As far as Mike expressing challenges about volenteers, Voncooper edited in what he wanted in the video, Mike said so much more about the venue. Both of Voncoopers pros loved the course too ! If you dont want to come here with positive energy, stay home that weekend ! E

 agreed, courses don't usually look as difficult on film, but seriously, you can't claim it's up to standard with the rest of the tracks during this season. you would be hard pushed to find an easier track on the scottish national series, when there's a juvenille category of riders under 14.
