The season opener for the UCI World Cup Downhill is always full of excitement, tension, nerves and thrills. No more so than at Lourdes, where the track was running dry and fast, with some technical rock sections that were make-or-break for more than a few athletes.
Eight of the teams racing were supported by Bluegrass, with ten of our athletes qualifying for the finals in all categories.
We were there to soak up the atmosphere, among one of the loudest crowds we’ve seen for a long time. Downhill Is most definitely back!
