The off-season wait is officially over as the fastest downhill mountain bikers flock to the anointed city of Southern France that is Lourdes. Back on the circuit for the second year in a row, the Lourdes track is ruthless and brutal with steep, rock-filled features and, as of now, slick soil.

Sven Martin, Duncan Philpott, @maddogboris and Dan Hearn introduce the nerves and excitement of the first World Cup DH race of 2016 with stunning photos and in-depth rider interviews. It's going to be insane!
