Qualifying Action from Les Carroz - French Downhill Championships 2017
Holy moly. This track is gnarly. The French downhill scene is alive and kicking. Why can’t we have more World Cups on tracks like this? The track is taped wide with loads of lines, fast, big holes, technical, and most importantly, hard. This caused a few big crashes, George Brannigan broke his collarbone out on track today, fastest today Flo Payet crashed twice in his practice run before finals.Les Carroz is nestled on the edge of the French Alps, just over the mountain from Les Gets and Morzine. It’s a small resort which is part of the Grand Massif ski area. With a lot of fast guys descending on Les Carroz, the likes of Loic Bruni, Loris Vergier, Flo Payet, and Myriam Nicole, it’s going to be an exciting race tomorrow.
