Loic Bruni’s Snowshoe DH Course Preview

by 4

This is it, we have reached the end of the season. Fear not though there are two rounds in Snowshoe so it’s not all said and done yet. Still, we will be sad to say goodbye to the World Cup for 2021. Want to see what the course looks like in Snowshoe? Take a ride down with Loic Bruni as he shows us the ropes.

As always, you can tune in on Red Bull TV for the racing, there’s DH and XC racing out in the USA, but two DH rounds. You can check out the timing for the live feeds here. Loic actually makes this track look pretty easy, but it’s far from it. This venue is still pretty new to the World Cup circuit, first appearing in 2019. There was however some racing there back in the early 90s.

The last time we were in Snowshoe we saw Danny Hart and Marine Cabirou take the top spot. It should be exciting to see who wins this time around. If this is anything to go by, Loic Bruni is looking good, you can never count out Super Bruni.

Don’t be fooled by by the smooth appearance of Super Bruni’s practice run, the Downhill track in Snowshoe, West Virginia, is something even the world’s finest gravity mountain bike racers need to get used to. Judging by the intensity of the first practice runs, the last two races of the UCI MTB Downhill World Cup season will be nothing short of a spectacle.

    There’s a lot of proper wheel eating rocky sections in that run. Should be a very interesting watch come race days

    Not exactly a course preview, just a practice run. Ben Cathro’s course preview at least has some insight into the track.

    Cathro is in at #44 . Well chuffed for him. Syrely pinkbike will support him again next season. His course previews are brilliant.

    Reece Wilson won last night. Story on the front page due, I reckon.
