Track Walk of Doom! Cairns World Cup Downhill Course, Of Snakes, Spiders and Stinging Plants
So we may be hyping up the scary jungle factor of the Cairns World Cup DH course a bit, but it sure is exciting. Snakes, spiders and slipping greeted riders in Northeastern, Australia as the 2014 UCI World Cup Mountain Bike Downhill circus makes its 2nd stop of the season. The course is narrow with dense, angry forest on each side. The dirt is slippery thanks to afternoon rains and the jumps on the track have the experienced vets excited about the possibilities. Take a tour of the Cairns DH course without the bug bites thanks to Sven Martin, Duncan Philpott and Boris Beyer. It's gonna be a wild one!
