Whether you watched live video from the Koppenbergcross or the highlight videos from the race, it’s fair to say the new race course was a challenging, hilly, off-camber affair.

Americans Elle Anderson, Eric Thompson and Christine Vardaros all lined up to contest the 2016 Koppenbergcross race (women’s report here, men’s report here), and Anderson and Thompson both had a chance to record a pre-race lap video on the new course that scaled the cobbled Koppenberg climb.

Come along for a ride with the videos below. Note: As is typical with GoPro-type videos, the wide-angle lens doesn’t quite reflect the steepness of climbs and descents!
