looks good a few new sections in 2nd half of top bit - hope they don't wear too much

the Glencoe run and uplift is also going now and not too far away

reckon Sunday's race mught be good for a SA rider with one of those funny full sussers with too much rear suspension or Peaty might give it a full go as a one off race

Thats completly ridiculous how long it is! I get bad pump in my left leg relating to my collar bone crash on 1 minute downhills let alone ones that rocky!!!!

Hope they get more cameras up there this year as last year it was mainly footage from the end bit which is smoothish big jumps, i want to see the rocks! Most they showed last year was the odd bit from a small camera or even worse, qualifying footage then swapping to live feed for the end!

That video shows perfectly what a difference it makes knowing the course. Some of the corners he really cut quite dramatically, not to mention the blind jumps.  :o

Holy crap that looks amazing :o  I still say to do that track at speed you need a proper DH bike though... some of those rocks, and massive drops into rock gardens :o  Yeah we have to do another Scotland trip soon!
