Last weekend Tahnée went over to Champery to get a first view of the World Cup Track.
"What a track... rode this last year, but the track has had a lot of work since then by track builder Ben Walker and his team. It's still a really scary track to ride - but I love it!
I had a really good day... little bit of a crash at the end. It was on the 35ft step-down before you hit the bottom section of the track - I was hitting it like a girl, which you can not do on this track. Paul Aston gave me a bit of a talking to - I forgot the part about staying to the right and checking my speed but the little step before it threw me offline!! I wanted to hit again but by the time I got myself back together we had to go as it started raining hard!"
