Below is a little course walk preview from the boys on Friday

Canada Cup # 1

Course walk with the Dunbar/Devinci/Elka Team

With team mates Andrew Mitchell and Dean Tennant

So as we headed to the course through the village we could see that the snow was still lying around. As we got closer to the infamous rock garden we could see some sort of animal moving about, but we were also missing Dean. Wait a minute... that's Dean so pumped on smashing boulders.

Everyone has always enjoyed racing Tremblant except that you have to go through a river that everyone hates!  So Stupid.

Not this year!image

This course hands down has to have some of the gnarliest sections on any track we raced imagine trying to race across this rock...


Overall the track has had some great improvements and we are looking forward to practice tomorrow!


Except for this jump which you have to turn off the race line to hit but was just freshly built for the race.
