Lourdes World Cup 2017: Top to bottom. Raw
See the first World Cup track of the year in full
It's one thing to see a track from a helmet cam, but you get a totally different impression when you see riders ripping down it from the sides.
Here's four minutes of raw action that takes you from the start gate to the finish line of the Lourdes World Cup track. It's worth saying this was taken in first practice this morning, so riders are still playing it safe and scoping lines, expect the track to be hit twice as hard come Sunday.
