Vallnord 2013 World Cup track helmet cam

Last weekend saw a round of the Catalan Cup take place on the new track that is set to be used for the forthcoming round of the World Cup in Vallnord, Andorra. Greg Minnaar and Manon Carpenter took the wins in what was also a UCI test event to check that everything ticked the boxes as far as they are concerned. Apparently there will be a couple of small changes made to the track in time for the World Cup, but in essence this is the track that riders will face…

Obviously that wasn’t ridden at World Cup speeds (Greg’s winning time at the weekend was four and a half minutes) but it gives you a good idea of the track, and we reckon it looks like it has the potential to be one of the best on the circuit. It looks to be full of technical sections from top to bottom, super natural, fast as hell in places, steep as anything in others, and widely taped with loads of line options. It certainly looks like a true DH track that will test a riders skill to the limit, and hopefully it should make for some great racing.

What do you lot reckon? Potential to be a classic track?

Update…just found this other video of the track, this time with Bernat Guardia of the GoPro-Intense Team taking it on before it was taped for the race…
