2013 World Championships Warm-Up Slideshow
Riders and teams descend on Pietermaritzburg, South Africa for the 2013 UCI World Championships of Mountain Biking where hot, dry weather has been baking the region for some time. The downhill course is long and rough, but also has a vicious pedaling section which is playing mind games with many about bike setup and equipment choice. Pietermaritzburg is also home of the current World Champion, Greg Minnaar. While he's trying to focus on racing, he's involuntarily playing local tour guide as the week of racing begins in South Africa. Sven Martin and Duncan Philpott bring you the action like no others can!
