This is What Downhill Racing is All About
This action clip from UCI is exactly why we love DH racing. It's fats, it's exhausting, it hurts - sometimes. At the end of August, Val di Sole, Commezzadura and its racetrack have given a very warm welcome to the final round of the UCI Downhill World Cup. The Black Snake, as one of the most beloved and respected tracks in the Series is called didn't conquer easily and the first heats have made the track even trickier - the racecourse was dusty and heavily rutted, really demanding after a number of runs. Check it out.

After tough battle, it was Aaron Gwin from the US and Rachel Atherton from the UK who take the final win. “In the morning I realized that I could actually take it easy because the win was not far at all, even with a second place", said Aaron Gwin. "But then I changed my mind and I had a flat-out run. If I race, I aim at winning. At half racecourse my hands were already painful. I began to make mistakes but it has not been too bad. I am sorry for Troy Brosnan, he is my teammate and he deserved to win”.

Rachel Atherton was stoked to take her already fourth World Cup title.  "The track is spot-on. I know Pippo, the track builder, and I think he has done a great job. With one more jump into the finish area it would be perfect! This track is faster than in the previous editions, but not really easier. I had a good run and my day has been perfect!”
