Info on this downhill?

I recall seeing this here, maybe about a year ago. I recently ran across it again by sheer luck. Comments say somewhere in France. Maybe I haven't been paying attention.

Location? Riders?

Yikes. Definitely humbling to me. At least I feel better now about all the tripodding I do on downhill switchbacks.

Thank god, no metal or head banger soundtrack. Enjoy:

That trail is Awesome! And I can't imagine having an 8min. descent. The descents here are, like, 1min.

Hey Ken - - don't worry, it's not Whistler . Found some info:

It's Venosc resort in Les Deux Alpes - - French Alps, somewhere out of Grenoble (http://www.venosc.com/ete/anglais/vtt.php). They boast 2 permanent DH race courses, 21 other DH runs and 7 XC trails.

According to what I've read from guys who've actually ridden there, exposures are not as freaky-dangerous as the fisheye makes them look.
