PIT BITS - iXS Downhill Cup #2 7

It may not be a World Cup, but there are plenty of unique bikes and parts to see in the pits in Slovenia at round 2 of the 2019 iXS Downhill Cup.

PIT BITS - iXS Downhill Cup #2

Kranjska Gora, Slovenia, plays host to the second round of the 2019 iXS Downhill Cup. While the World Cup circus has moved on after the season opener in Maribor, Slovenia, a week ago, plenty of hearty downhillers have stayed in the area to race in Kranjska Gora. The weather has been dismal with snow earlier in the week and rain, so the course conditions are hectic to say the least. If you want to be a better racer, you have to face all conditions. Rick Schubert checks out the bikes of racers who aren't afraid of a little moisture.
