Instabangers: Mont Sainte Anne day 1

All the behind the scenes action from the pros

There haven’t been many tracks that have been universally liked by riders this year but then there’s not many out there like Mont Sainte Anne. Long, fast, rough and steep it’s everything a top level downhill course should be. We rounded up all the best reactions from the riders on what has been described as “the gnarliest track of the year”.

Loic Bruni

Bruni’s back for the first time since Cairns and his World Champs livery has been replaced with this tasty maroon number.

Dunno who's the sexiest there ???????? Absolutely best bike of the year ! Regram from @lacrete5

Aaron Gwin

Gwin has to be one of the favorites on Saturday and a win could seal the overall for him.


Connor Fearon

The dusty MSA track isn’t too far removed from the Aussie tracks Fearon is used to, he could in for a big result this weekend.

Propain Dirt Zelvy

“The fastest and scariest section of a World Cup, maybe ever”, reckon our boys. Big claim but it could well be true.

Sam Blenkinsop

The Kiwis are sure to be Peking this weekend on a fast, rough track.

Track is looking rad can't wait to ride tomorrow. @wynmasters #duck

Marcelo Gutierrez

No downtime for the Colombian champ – he’s looking very trim this year too.

Eddie Masters

Looks like Eddie has a favorite for gold in Rio.

Sven Martin

There have been some amazing tributes to Stevie Smith since his tragic passing and the MSA chairlifts are another touching example.

Gone but not forgotten… #longlivechainsaw
