There are two days to go until the biggest show in mountain biking kicks off on Friday. If you want to get adequate practice time in, there's no room for building, only sculpting and refining. Instead it's time to get on the sled and start taking those leaps into the unknown.

Here's all the action from the first full day of riding:

Cam Zink

Zink, Strait and Pef have been leaving chins in the dust as they blitzed their huge lines on day one of practice.

Kyle Strait

The chute that never ends

Ryan Howard

How did you wake up this morning?

Bas Van Steenbergen

Bit of a bum pucker moment (ask Cycling Weekly for more info on them) from Bas Van Steenbergen after this h-yuge step down.

Andreu Lacondeguy

Super extension on this Indy flip from Andreu

Thomas Genon

Great angle on this built up drop for Genon

Ethan Nell

Holy mother.... check out this huge double drop on Nell's line

Reed Boggs

We know Reed Boggs has a big bag of tricks but he's also got the softly-softly skills as he shows on this creeper drop.

Brandon Semenuk

Semenuk clips are few and far between but he's already charging into the lower jumps

Antoine Bizet

Bizet staying chill in the shadow of his collapsed landing.

Connor MacFarlane

What six days of graft does to a spot. This 45 foot drop is no joke

Brett Tippee

Being Brett Tippee...
