Only three weeks 'til the UCI World Cup Downhill & Fourcross at Leogang. 

The 4X course is finished and the organizers sent over some maps and shots of the track. The Leogang website also went live and features the most important background information: www.mtbworldcup.at.

The Downhill course is 2600 meters long, has an altitude difference of 524 meters and promises a top speed of about 80 km/h (50 mph). Chris Ball, UCI Technical Delegate, visited Leogang recently and gives a brief overview of the set up: “The course in Leogang is one of the longer courses on the World Cup circuit, taking riders over 4.30 minutes to complete. Leogang is a welcome inclusion into the series as it is both physical and technically challenging. From the start, the course covers some natural, fast singletracks before the gradient flattens and riders have to rely on their strength to keep up their speed. The final plunge into the finish includes some steep drops and very technical sections that will test athletes before they shoot out of the trees towards the finish line.”
