The World Cup circuit has been coming to MSA since 1993 and its high-speed straights and rocky wood sections have become notorious among riders and fans alike.

Bernard Kerr is back with Summertime Living... In the downtime between Crankworx and the World Cups Bernard has a little fun on his Pivot Phoenix and Mach 5.5 riding Les Gets, France and then it’s off to Italy where he rips Pila Bike Park with a stop in Milan and one of his favorite motocross tracks, Dornoland. Warning: these are some of Bernard’s favorite areas to ride, so the stoke level is off the charts, and this video will make you want to ride.
