After a miserable, stormy June, we needed a dose of radness to kickstart July and it seems like Lenzerheide could be just the ticket.

The World Cup has been away for only just over a month but the excitement of the first four rounds has left us pining for more.

And so we return to Lenzerheide - the track that was designed with input from Steve Peat and delivered Greg Minnaar his record breaking 18th win. It's similar to Leogang in that it's heavily man-made and attracts a decent amount of criticism, but don't underestimate it - it's already taken its first victim in the form of Claudio Caluori.

The riders reacquainted themselves with the track today and here's all the best action from the trackwalk:

Lenzerheide is one of the most picturesque courses going
