"Dry, dusty and full of massive jumps" was the word of our man on the ground at the Cairns World Cup, and if this footage from Claudio Clauori is anything to go by, he's dead-on.

Claudio follows Troy Brosnan down the track with his usual commentary but keep an eye out for cameos from Brendan Fairclough and Brosnan's mum.

How fast does Troy Brosnan look though? He has been sessioning the track through the winter and he already looks on the money with some big lines nailed. Could he be one to watch in front of his home crowd on Saturday?
