Is it still a bike park? Lenzerheide is biting back this year. Dust blown out, rocks weathered into jagged teeth and each corner littered with holes and loose gravel. This is no easy ride.

There were plenty of spills yesterday, most prominently in the top rock garden that’s more like a shark’s mouth than a mountain bike course feature, in truth, we’re not sure anyone’s found the perfect line through it yet.
After that you’re into the usual Lenzerheide riddle, where’s the grip? With big holes contrasted with marbly dirt, both suspension set up and tyre choice are a bit of an enigma at the moment. Troy Brosnan and Tracey Hannah made the most of it yesterday but today will provide the real test of who has conquered this tricksy track.
