TOO GNARLY? Never. Val di Sole World Cup DH Timed Training Slideshow

View as: Slideshow | One Page

Can there be a UCI Mountain Bike World Cup DH track that's too gnarly? We know there are slow, technical trails that are difficult and perilous if ridden wrong, but we're talking World Cup-caliber downhill race courses. So, can it get too rough and too fast? Some riders think the 2019 Val di Sole course is at that limit - the limit of what's rideable at a legitimate race pace. Since we're not out there dodging the bomb holes and boulders, we'll leave it up to Sven Martin, @maddogboris and Dan Hearn to tell the story of the almost-too-gnarly as they deliver the destruction from a dry, dusty timed training day. Rain is in the forecast which makes our hind ends pucker that much more.
