Was reading the bigbike magazine website and discovered that Yannick Granieri will be helping design the slopestyle course for Crankwork Les 2 Alpes. What's interesting is what he plans to include on the course:

A trampoline (cool huh?) and a triple (step up, step up into two waves and output step down ) and a few classics such as doubles, hips and a big huge air of 20/25 meters, "it will reflect a jump FMX, said Yannick, we really want to push the limits of the sport and bring new things ". Good for riders, good for the show and good for the development of sport, we looked forward to see it all on foot in a few months. A schematic of the set-up should arrive shortly.

The article also mentions that there will be some sort of 'speed and style' event and a 'dual climb' created by Mick Hannah and Marc Beaumont. In the dual climb, riders will ride both up and downhill.

Pretty rad.
