Description

This was the original corridor used in the 2005 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup race here in the good ol' USA. Greg Minnar, Chris Kovarik, Steve Pete and many others battled it out here in Angel Fire to see who had the skill to make it down the fastest. This track has evolved quite a bit over the years to accommodate new downhill bike technology as well as what modern racers demand in a proper downhill track. This is definitely one of the best, if not the best, downhill race track in North America. Aaron Gwin set a new, all-time record on this track a couple years ago with a time of 4:04:77. Can you beat it?
