Maybe it’s more Monday distraction, but we had to share this DH track preview. The local organizers that convinced the UCI to bring the opening round of the Downhill World Cup to their island next weekend have shared a raw footage preview run of the race track. We understand why the UCI was convinced. The rocky track looks great and should lead to some exciting racing in a week’s time, and some great race photos!

After you watch that run all the way dow to the harbor…

…check out the feature video below of the MTB team Trbovlje building the World Cup track this past winter.

The Slovenian organizers worked with local Croatian riding club AC Lošinj for the last five years to develop the race track, building almost the entire thing by hand.
