If you know anything about me, you know I love my Downhill MTB, so you’ll know I’m very, very happy to have 2 DH World Cups in the space of a week. And of course there’ll be days and days of videos, photos and fun before the finals start… Here’s the UCI trailer
The World Cup is on 14th & 15th June, and we can watch the women’s and men’s finals live on the Red Bull tv stream, on Sunday 15th June, from 14:15 Euro CEST (1:15pm UK BST; 8:15am USA EST and 3:15am PST; 10:15am Aus AEST) with the women first – the full programme runs about 2 hours long, and if you miss it, it’ll be archived at the same link after the races.
Of course, there’ll be all sorts of action before the finals – keep an eye on Red Bull Bike, the UCI MTB World Cup facebook, Dirt Magazine (here’s their preview), Pinkbike, Vital MTB and of course, the race website. The World Cup is just one of the events this week at Leogang – there’s the Out Of Bounds MTB Festival, and the Four Cross World Championships on 14th June. 4X is such an amazing, adrenaline-filled sport, so although we can’t watch live, come back here after the weekend for any videos and photos I can find. Here’s a British-based preview of it on Pinkbike.
