NOW ORGANIC! 🙂
The first round of the DH world cup in Leogang did not disappoint. Some riders opted for a cautious approach to the ever-changing conditions and some went full send. We saw spills and some unlucky moments for a few riders and some retribution at last. Here are the downhill highlights from the finals.
An old track with a new twist. Leogang brought the goods at round one of the UCI Downhill MTB World Cup this weekend! A new track that could be discussed for weeks was quickly tamed by some of the world’s best as riders carved their way down the Austrian landscape. With crashes to follow and some incredibly fast laps, it was top-to-bottom drama throughout the day before Swiss rider Camille Balanche cemented her place in Leogang history and Australian rocket Troy Brosnan ended his winning drought with an exceptional run.
