After a wild weekend in Leogang, downhill’s fall calendar keeps right on trucking. This week is a downhill doubleheader World Cup in Maribor, Slovenia. Gee Atherton and Luca Shaw both were on course and flying Wednesday. Check out – and compare notes – between their two POV track previews.
Conditions in Maribor are looking much faster than the world champs mud-fest in Austria. But, there’s already rain in the forecast for Thursday’s qualifying day. Will we see a dry race in 2020? Or will it be another wild weekend of sliding on roots and rocks in Slovenia?
