World Cup number 3 takes us to Leogang, Austria for arguably the most picturesque stop of the year! The stunning mountain vistas welcome everyone to a town that does great schnitzels and really seems to embrace the race each year. A few key points, Dean Lucas is back racing, he has overcome the concussion he sustained in Fort William, his hand is a bit sore but we know how keen Dean is to race! Talking about hands, Aaron Gwin suffered a dislocated thumb and it looks to be quite sore, whether it will slow him down remains to be seen.

Good to see Dean Lucas back and charging!

Qualifying will be our first real indication of how riders are travelling, one thing is for sure – the race is wide open across all categories, just what we want to see!

Loic Bruni won the Junior World Championships here in 2012 so he has a good idea of what it takes to stand on top of the podium here!

We wouldn't be surprised if this is the race that kick starts Mic Hannah's season!
