Watching the pros run practice laps on World Cup DH courses is always mind blowing, since they’re nowhere near race pace and are still going much faster than most of us ever will. Imagine having the ability to do that? Must be fun. With more World Cup DH racing coming your way this weekend, Gee Atherton provides the goods with a course preview of the track in Maribor, Slovenia.
It’s a good mix of high-speed and steep roots with lots of technical gaps. With some rain in the forecast for race day, will the riders experience the same wild ride as last weekend in Leogang?
