Psychosis. The 5.9 km stretch of track is quickly gaining a reputation as the steepest and gnarliest ride on the circuit. The trail has been described as mind-blowing, knuckle-whitening, ridiculously-steep, and insane.
This years race took place Saturday afternoon in Golden, Bc. Some of the world's best racers threw themselves off the launch pad and into the longest singletrack DH race in the world. Chris Kovarik took the win and set a new course record with a time of 12:35, 14 seconds faster than Sam Hill's record from last year.
