Canada Cup Final Standings
We have calculated the final standings for the Cross Country. Go Here . Points were calculated according to the CCA rules: Best 4 of 6 and riders must attend the final event to qualify for the overall.
The DH will be up by the end of the weekend.
This weekend is World Cup DH #6 in Mont Ste-Anne. Rob will be on site all weekend to give us full coverage of the events and festivities.
Warwick Paterson sent us a pre-race update on the condition of the course - The DH course is dry and loose, with each rider dislodging more and more rocks. For once, the technical sections in the trees are almost totally dry! Maybe it's a testimony to the new anti-flat technology, but there has been surprisingly few flats ... well, less than usual.
They just had Dual Slalom training, and this year's course is amazing! It's a very fast course with some rather large jumps! It took a few runs for the big names to clear the longest table-top. With two racers side-by-side at top speed, this course is going to be
unbelievable for the spectators!
Dual Slalom race tomorrow night, and the Downhills are on Sunday.
