Out of the frying pan and into the fire. Just five days on from the scintillating Val di Sole race, we're at the Vallnord. The two most technical tracks of the year crammed within a week - no rest for the wicked. 

Vallnord is its usual mix of bike park blasting up top then some of the steepest downhill going. This year the bottom section has been generously taped wide giving plenty of options to get through the madness. You'll need the options too, as rain is forecast for a second weekend in a row making this a pretty scary prospect of a track.
