The course for the dirt jump contest is already finished in the brand new Action Sports Hall and is waiting for riders to hit it with their best tricks. This year, riders will be starting from an 8-meter starting tower and are dropping into a decent step down, which gives the riders the speed they need for the first big sender. The three jumps on this extremely fast course have gaps of 8, 6 and 4 meters. The short but sweet course planned by course designer Markus Hampl, gives great opportunity for big tricks. So, the spectators can look forward to spectacular dirt jump action.
The riders are competing for a total of 10,000 Euro that will be split among the winners of the final. For anyone whose heart beats for spectacular bike action, the Rollei Best Trick Contest on Saturday after 7pm with a prize money of 1,000 Euro for the most impressive move will certainly be a highlight.
Patrick Guimez and Markus Hampl just informed us about Lords Of Dirt 2011.
This year the comp counts 2 stops. First stop happens in Tosse (south west of France close to Hossegor ) on August 20th-21st.
The 2nd stop is in frejus on October 7th-9th during Roc d’Azur Bike Show.

Nick Beer and Emilie Siegenthaler both defended their swiss champion’s title, while Floriane Pugin and Fabien Pedemanaud were slowed down by mechanical problems at the french championships.
The swiss championships were held in Wiriehorn on saturday, while the sun was still out. The pressure was on, as Emilie and Nick were fighting against the jetlag from Windham as well as the rest of Switzerland’s downhill racers who were trying to take their titles. Though, Nick and Emilie managed to win their race with a lead of over 3 seconds, making sure they keep wearing the swiss cross. Just before racing the swiss championships, they won the qualifier for sunday’s IXS Swiss Downhill Cup on the same track. One day later, the race was canceled because of almost impossible weather conditions, and saturdays qualifier counted for the IXS Cup, which means that Nick and Emilie each won 2 races within a few hours.
The french championships were not as positive for SCOTT11: Floriane Pugin and Fabien Pedemanaud liked the wet and muddy conditions that were even worse than the ones at Wiriehorn. The track was just what they ride best on, but they both had mechanical problems and couldn’t finish the race in a top spot.
It’s now time for a little brake and a little shape polishing before the season continues with the season’s most important races: World Cup La Bresse, France, on august 7, World Cup Finals Val di Sole, Italy, on august 21, and the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS IN CHAMPERY, SWITZERLAND, ON SEPTEMBER 4!
While the SCOTT11 athletes were fighting for medals, team manager Caluori was building Switzerland’s next pumptrack in Mendrisio, near Italy. Mechanical problems, weather and jetlag also slowed things down, but the fun kept everybody going.

Floriane Pugin and Emilie Siegenthaler did it for SCOTT11 at the world cup in Windham:
Floriane had some problems getting into the rhythm at the start and lost almost 4 seconds on winner Rachel Atherton to the first split time. But then she found the turbo button, making up 3 of those 4 seconds, placing 2nd, in front of world champion Tracey Moseley.
Emilie Siegenthaler finally did it and stepped on a world cup podium for the first time in her life!
With Emilie in 5th place, there was a lot of yellow at the womens podium ceremony.
Nick Beer and Fabien Pedemanaud were not able to find their speed on the Windham track this year. They will use the national championships next weekend, as well as the next 2 race-free weekends to find it for the world cup in La Bresse, France, that will be held beginning august.
