DirtTV:Windham UCI World Cup Helmet Cam 2011

Dirt Norco rider Dan Stanbridge is your tour guide for todays magical mystery ride on the Windham WC course in New York state.

The weather here in Windham is hot and sunny, Sian lloyd would describe it as sultry. Dusty roost is being thrown up on the corners.

So why are the riders covered in bog juice at the finish line?

Well, there are a number of natural springs throughout the course turning some sections into a quagmire.

Dan Stanbridge, did two helmet cam runs and asked me to use the second file because he cleared the awkward ‘boggy double’ on that run, but alas there was too much gloop on the screen, so I’m using the first edit. Soz Stanny.

PS. There is no music. If you want music then press mute and turn up your gramaphone with your favourite Brittany Spears, Napalm Death or Burt Bacharach tune.

    The speed they hit that road gap is insane. Some super fast sections here which are ace to watch trackside.

    My favourite WC course this year by far! Billy, I thought Rennie was supposed to be back this season??

  4. VonDH

    Damn thats a short track surley race runs are going to be 2:30 or less.

  5. nadger

    holy shit the Gatto-Box looks fast and loose. it’s gonna take a pounding this weekend, i hope it’s up to the abuse

  6. hari

    @nadger I like what you did there

  7. billy

    Pete, Sadly I think Rennoir is gone for good as far as the WC circus is concerned.

    Kovarik and Buchar will be racing Crankworx though.
