Just loving this photo of Emily Batty at the last world cup! Who says cross country racing is boring and that girls who race XC are not badass? :thumbsup:

Yes, she's come a long way in the years. I've seen other videos and pics of her riding over the years. She's had her share of "endos" and other mishaps. The awesome thing is she keeps coming back and smiling while she's doing it.

I think this was in CAIRNS.........I saw pics of this section of the trail from below looking back up. There were two alternate lines and both looked pretty fun ( ;) ). The line she took was faster but more technical. Love it.

There are A and B lines...with the A lines being more difficult...but faster if you can make it through.

The XCO and XCE courses for this year are pretty nuts. The rock garden sections look like you need a DH rig to get through them...and they are rolling through with no rear suspension!

You can watch all the races live and on demand at Redbull TV.
