Practically speaking, everyone knows how to ride a bike, but no
matter how many times we see this event, we're fascinated to
see just how well some people can fly a bike.

The other thing we find fascinating is the level of technology that
goes into the construction of these bikes. The level of design and
machine work that can be seen is ultra high-tech that utilizes exotic
lightweight metal alloys and composites, but rendered in an almost
artistic manner.

These bikes are not only functional in an extremely high stress physical
environment, but they look good doing it.

We can't think of a better venue than Mt. Tremblant for this
demanding Mountain Bike event for both Riders and Spectators.

The Tremblant Resort South Side base is an excellent place to
facilitate all the activities associated with this competition. There's
lots of room to set up the course and it's super easy for those
watching to do so either right at base level, or to hike up a bit
for a closer look at the action.

Looking up from Resort base to final course turns.

Not only can you see competitors on the course, but the last
evidence that "Winter" was not all that long ago as the final
patch of snow visible reminds us.
