C4 Riders head out to a network of trails that have been used in previous years of training to work on some flatter terrain. The day started out with cutting in a new section of trail with some tight turns.
The first few times the line was ridden, riders weren’t really feeling like it was a worthwhile line to do timing on, but after a few more laps, they realized it was exactly what they were looking for. On typical DH tracks, you don’t often see these super tight “slow” corners, but anybody who remembers the 2015 BC Provincials race course in Whistler will know how valuable this kind of training is.
After timing was completed as the rain started, to come down, there was still an hour left in training. So what does a group of racers do? Build a jump of course!
The riders weren’t just having fun. The jump landed into a berm which immediately led to another small lip to a landing into a flat corner which led back to the trail original trail. It took some skill to link it all together!
