Videos and media from the 2016 Downhill MTB World Championships

The final big Downhill MTB race of 2016 was a huge one – the 2016 World Championships.  And because this is MTB, we have a ton of videos, photos and excellent media for you.  I’ll be editing in more as I see it, but wow, there’s a lot already, including the Junior women and the 2016 Four Cross Worlds.

It was a really tough course – very steep, very technical, full of deep dust, treacherous holes and Let’s start with the Full race replay on Red Bull TV.
