Cairns World Cup 2 – Finals

We are Australian so we might be a little biased but the Cairns world cup was one of the best we have witnessed in some time! There were some truly amazing highs (as well as a few lows – after all that is racing), the day kicked off with a short practice session in the [...]

Cairns World Cup 2 – Qualifying

With the sun shining and the birds chirping (they were mimicking the course marshal’s whistles’) today was qualifying day and what  a day it was. The track had some noticeable lines starting to appear down the course for riders to take but the rock garden near the top was still catching people out, much like [...]

He got up and kept charging later in the day though!

Cairns World Cup 2 – Practice

Here we are, Cairns in far North Queensland, for the second round of the UCI World Cup series. Everyone remembers 2014 and the mud bath that was… After a dry track walk everyone was positive. Unfortunately there was some rain that fell during the day that made the rocks super slippery. The track itself hasn’t [...]

Josh Bryceland looked blistering across the top of the course, this translated into 6th place.

World Cup 1 – Lourdes

Racing is back and more specifically the highest form of racing in our sport – World Cups. It was Lourdes, France that played host to round one just as it did last year. Being the first round meant that we were still adjusting to all the team reshuffles that have occurred during the off season. [...]

World Championships – Andorra

The 26th World Championships were everything the ‘race of the year’ was billed up to be. Held in the Principality of Andorra, which is located in the Pyrenees, home of 85,000 people it was fair to say this was one event which had a lot of people talking about the place. The lead up to [...]

Aaron Gwin again showed he can handle a bike on a variety of courses to take the win here on a totally different track to the last race in Windham.

World Cup 7 – Val di Sole

There will be no more world cups until 2016! Seems crazy to write that because it feels like only last week we were racing the first round but it is the truth. Fortunately there is still the world championships to come but before we get ahead of ourselves, Val di Sole (VDS) and what a [...]

As humble as ever, Arron Gwin said he was delighted to win at home, with this week having been one of his most memorable races to date.

World Cup 6 – Windham – Finals

Your alarm goes off, it is 6.30am, you are nervous but not overly hungry, you force yourself to eat something. That bowl of oats gets forced down while you are checking the old social media before you realise it is getting close to go time, you go put your fresh kit on before you get [...]

You can never rule Greg Minnaar out, the most successful male world cup racer of all time can increase his haul at anytime!

World Cup 6 – Windham – Qualifying

We headed down south from Mont Sainte Anne to Windham in the United States of America for round 6 of the world cup. In relation to last race this track is much shorter, around half the time overall. It does have a combination of fast sections, jumps and some rocky shale which is common in [...]

The Rat is back! Josh Bryceland said his run wasn't perfect but at MSA it doesn't have to be for the win, it just needs to be the best.

World Cup 5 – Mont Sainte Anne – Finals

You couldn’t have picked a more exciting race to celebrate the 150th UCI downhill world cup and the 25th year that Mont Sainte Anne have held a world cup/championships. There was plenty of action before finals with qualifying throwing up a few surprises of its own, Aaron Gwin was a DNF as he crashed in [...]
