Mont Sainte Anne – Day 1 – Practice

We landed in Canada today, all primed for the race – first we had a bit of a drive to get to the track, as we got closer, the clouds got greyer and greyer…. then came the rain! It really came down – as the French would say ‘merde’, we will let you google that (we are in French part of Canada after all!).

The hill is up there… somewhere!

We didn’t make it down the whole track as much of practice was cancelled, here is what we saw today;

The rocks up here on the track were wet and slippery – the forecast for the rest of the week is sunshine!
This didn’t stop some riders though, they were out practicing in full force!
Others took a more relaxed approach to the day.
Shortly after the big rain of the day, the sun was back out in force.
If the sun stays out the track here can dry up relatively quickly.

Young Aussie Paddi Butler motoring past!
Kye A’Hern came into this rock roll down sideways, it was wild!
A lot of work in the pits for mechanics to clean all the bikes and gear.

Some nice rides, of the 2 and 4 wheel category kicking around!
Let mother nature smile down upon us tomorrow… please!

Check in for more action tomorrow!
