WP Downhill round 2 - Zevenwacht
Round 2 of the WP downhill series took place this weekend, with another new track added to the 2012 calendar. Zevenwacht DH was resurrected after 6 years of slumber, to host a very successful weekend of racing, with 85 riders taking part. The track was fast and flowy and not very technical - making it a lot of fun and suitable for DH riders of all skill levels.
Some features of the track included a gap over a decommissioned tin mine entrance, a big rock drop and a 12m table at the bottom. In between there’s some fast open sections with a couple of doubles and some rock gardens to round things off.
Luckily the predicted bad weather stayed away all weekend and conditions were absolutely perfect for racing. Unfortunately though, race day produced 3 big crashes with Kyle Fletcher breaking his collar bone and dislocating his hip and Peter West breaking his arm in 3 places. We hope you recover soon guys!
Thanks to all the sponsors, all the organisers and everybody that helped with preparing the track.
