Are you as excited as we are to be dropping in on another World Cup downhill season?! The riders, teams and media have descended upon Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, to crack open the highest level of downhill mountain bike competition in 2014. The track has been made rougher, wheel size is still a hot topic and new bikes are showing up around every corner. Let's kick off another great season with the first slideshow from Sven Martin and Duncan Philpott! YEW!
