    Start behind the Garbanzo lift hut -> Original Sin (including the uphill section) -> exit Original Sin at the step down/step up tree island on the Dave Murray flats -> proceed down Blue Velvet -> traverse and proceed into In Deep -> after rock face turn left towards Container (FatCrobat would require a right turn at this point) -> from Container into No Joke/ Duffman -> remain on Duffman until merges with Golden Triangle -> continue on World Cup Singletrack -> Ho Chi Min -> Longhorn -> Monkey Hands to finish

    whats wrong with monkey hands, fast off camber sections for the win man.

    as for the route, it could be done by avoiding A-line but would be over by the crank it up/whistler downhill side of the hill.

    o-sin with the climb sucks, it's a dh race, in deep is effed beyond belief, the rest of the course I don't mind....it is a shade of its former glory when it was the no joke course first couple times....now that was a blaster.

    ... uuuuh no it doesnt,its actually quite a blast a full speed

    that said the course does need a lot of love, especially the Garbo part.Most top guns woulnt even bother racing it last year cause it SUCKED.

    Not sure that would be a priority for C-worx though...Slopestyle seems to attract more people than racing ( perhaps they'd get more spectators if they had a better course with better prizes and riders ;-) )

    In Deep is a fantastic trail and if you can ride it with any kind of pace you are a god.

    This. I'd never been on it before my first practice run . . . and then to do it at race pace (or what passes for it with me) was just pucker-plus.
