Videos & stuff from the 2014 Pietermaritzburg MTB World Cup

Pietermaritzburg was such a great way to start the 2014 MTB World Cup – superb racing, hot and dusty, rock gardens and hard courses.   Here’s all the video – and the amazing photos – from the downhill and cross country women’s races – and please, as always, share anything you find in the comments and on twitter.


Here’s the full replay of the downhill finals – the 10 fastest qualifying women and the 30 fastest men.

I love the Orpheus Productions dh videos, and now they’re making them for Red Bull Bike – here’s their film from the finals, with some great moments and rider interviews.

And here are their videos from the Practice Day and the Qualifying runs

Tons of photos and things!

UPDATE!  Video from Hutchinson United Ride, with the awesome Tracey Hannah


Cross Country

The full women’s race is archived on Red Bull tv – and here’s their pre-race Trackwalk video with Maja Wloszczowska and Jolanda Neff of Giant – which was very prescient of Red Bull, given that Neff won the race and Wloszczowska was third!

Photos of the race on Pinkbike, and on the Giant Pro XC Team facebook.
UPDATE! and video and audio slideshow on Vital MTB – thanks to Karen Long!

UPDATE! Course check with the Multivan Merida team, including Gunn-Rita Dahle-Flesjåa
