Just had a stroll down the Schladming track this afternoon. The sun was out, but early rain has made the track damp in parts, probably not much to worry about. The old parts are worn in a treat. The top section is almost the same slight line changes here and there, there's a new section in the woods, steep and tech, few changes to the grassy corners then she's flat out to the finish...looks mint.

4x track is looking twice as long, fast and fun, a new top section joins last years track via a big pro line. Photos coming next. Video of the DH track and the 4x coming up as soon as Schladming internet plays the game.
