This is the first time the world cup has come to Norway and so far its so good, not cheap, but good.
Right out the gate the track is wideopen and with huge jumps, should be a good one for the crowd.

Madison/Saracen rider Harry Molloy shares his thoughts on the brand new WC track.
There was a team of people on the track today doing some last minute work to make it as good as it can be before everyone starts riding in the morning.
There are some pretty serious rock sections on the track here, one that should see the technical riders put some time in.
Norway is a stunning country with loads of natural features all the way down the track as well as some more bike park type sections.
With some rain showers this evening the weather could have a large part to play in how this race turns out.
CRC/Nukeproof rider Al Bond is here and seems to like the track and can't wait to get his tyres dirty tomorrow.
