Videos & *stuff* from the 2014 Cairns MTB World Cup

This weekend was round 2 of the MTB World Cup – and given it was in the Australian RAINforest, it was MTB in cyclocross conditions – complete with the Downhill course being shut for a while for snake crossing.  Because it’s MTB, there was a ton of gorgeous photography, videos and more fun *stuff* – here’s what I liked.

The Eliminator

This is great – they are experimenting with GoPro footage from within the race, and this is the only film they could salvage, from Jolanda Neff and Kathrin Stirnemann’s helmets.  Full replay of the race video on Red Bull Bike – and here’s the UCI highlights

Wow!  If there’s anything else you like, add it to the links.  Next round of the MTB World Cup is Nove Mesto, 22nd-25th May, and it’ll be live as usual on Red Bull tv (eliminator, downhill, women’s XCo and men’s XCo – no downhill until Fort William on 8th June)
