The Complete Guide to the 2018 UCI World Cup Downhill Tracks

Apr 14, 2018
by Alex Evans  



The 2018 UCI Downhill World Cup is nearly upon us and with a new addition, a blast from the past and plenty of old favourites, this year's venus are going to play host to some of the tightest action we've ever seen. What does each venue have in store for the world's fastest racers? Read our guide to help you make your bets on who will come out on top at each round in a quest to win Pinkbike's Fantasy Downhill presented by Trek.



Round 1
Lošinj, Croatia - April 21 - 22



A totally new World Cup venue for 2018, Lošinj is a northern Island off the Croatian mainland in the Adriatic sea, to the east of Italy. The track is rocky and extremely technical, although it's quite short it has been built without the use of any machinery, adding to its unique feel. The track received some initial criticism from Loic Bruni, but after doing some testing at the track he backtracked and admitted that it should create some of the most interesting racing this year. Bruni also commented that to get the best results riders are going to need to try out lots of different set-up techniques. As a season opener, downhill riders the world over are hoping the track will allow for an explosive start. Listen to Bruni, Iles and Miller weigh in on their experiences at Lošinj and check out all the work the build crew have been up to preparing for their inaugural World Cup event.





Round 2
Fort William, Scotland - June 2 - 3


2017's visit to the midge-infested but absolutely stunning Nevis Range just outside Fort William in Scotland was full of surprises, letdowns and assertions of dominance. In 2017 track-side chat was dominated by the inclusion of a fresh-cut wooded section that went from loamy paradise to a root-infested, rutty roll of the dice in a matter of minutes as soon as rider's wheels touched the dirt. The section took many victims, the most notable of which was Rachel Atherton. She dislocated her shoulder (and then had a spectator put it back in track-side), signalling an end to her nine-race winning streak. In the finals, the woods felled more riders to the floor, shaking up the results somewhat. The question remains, will it be included in this year's track and if so, will it help decide the odd of the racer's chances at a podium result?

Round 3
Leogang, Austria - June 9 - 10


Myriam Nicole was third just 2.5 seconds back to make this one of the closest Women s races we ve had in some time.

To the west of Innsbruck, the central location of Leogang in Austria means it's well endowed with amazing scenery and massive mountains. Although the larger-than-life landscape doesn't translate to a rugged and natural-feeling track, Leogang's race course has been widely criticised by riders who love technical challenges. However, that isn't to say that it doesn't present its own unique set of challenges. The racing is frequently tight and extremely high-paced and riders have to risk it all for a shot at the podium. Last year, in a protest to the trail's lack of features, Phil Atwill rode his hardtail during training. Leogang marked Tahnée Seagrave's first World Cup win and saw Aaron Gwin come out on top. Racers haver to be asking the question: "Has the trail crew at Leogang listened to rider's complaints about the bikepark nature of the track?" Or will the riders embrace the variety of the challenge the Austrian track offers?

3 Alessia Missiaggia 4:14.119



Round 4
Val di Sole, Italy - July 7 - 8


That s one bad day at the office for the number 1.

Named the 'Valley of Sun', Val di Sole is nestled away in Italy's stunning northern Alpine region and, as the name suggests, it's normally bestowed with favourable weather conditions during the Summer months. Since it first popped up on the UCI downhill race calendar in 2008 when it hosted the World Championships, Val di Sole has gone down in the history books as one of the gnarliest race tracks around. Soft, dry dirt covers roots, rocks and holes that are ready to take out unsuspecting riders and many race runs have ended in a blaze of fire and bike parts. In 2017, Greg Minnaar's bike snapped in half when it collided with a solid wooden post marking the edge of the course during practice. This made the internet stir wildly and Minnaar's bad luck didn't improve; his finals run was cut short when he punctured and blew up his back wheel. Greg handed the win to Gwin, but who will triumph this year? In the ladies race, Tahnée Seagrave backed up her 'bike park' win in Leogang with an impressive performance on this ultra-gnarly track, silencing her critics.

2 Paula Zibasa 4:52.099
3 Beatrice Migliorini 5:05.027



Round 5
Vallnord, Andorra - July 14 - 15


2.5 seconds back for Gwin on a track so steep it seemed tough for him to really shine and attack with the venom he usually brings to finals.

The Vallnord track, in the Principality of Andorra that sits between France and Spain in the Pyrenees, is a firm rider favourite and isn't short of features. Famed by its gradient, riders take a rollercoaster ride down the mountain plummetting some 600 metres in 4 minutes and are spat out at the bottom of the hill feeling like they've been in a fight with Muhammad Ali. Troy Brosnan took his second ever World Cup win on the Andorran track up against stiff competition from Greg Minnaar who was on a roll and Danny Hart who was letting it all hang out right up to the line. Clever line choice and calculated risk-taking seem to add up to successful run times on this demanding and technical track.

1 Troy Brosnan 4:06.236

2 Melanie Chappaz 5:59.826
3 Beatrice Migliorini 6:14.520



Round 6
Mont-Sainte-Anne, Canada - August 11 - 12


Tahnee Seagrave rode with renewed speed and confidence today and left all of the other women in her wake. Another win for the young British rider who will be one to watch for many years to come.

Just a stone's throw from Canada's Québec City, Mont-Sainte-Anne has been on the World Cup calendar since 1993. The track is a mix of flat-out old-school ski piste sections intertwined with some of the rockiest and harshest technical sections on the calendar in the woods. Notoriously, the weather has played a role in how Canada's World Cup event unfolds and 2017 was no exception. Finn Iles, who posted a time quick enough to bag him the elite win, rode a track with slightly different conditions to the top men. Luckily the weather was fairly consistent across both the men's and women's elite races and Gwin pipped podium new-comer Dean Lucas to the win by a one-second margin. In the women's race, Tahnée bagged another elite win with a recovering Rachel Atherton not too far behind in fifth place. It's a safe bet that Mont-Sainte-Anne will host a fantastic show for the racers and fans alike in 2018.

2 Mazie Hyaden 5:51.742
3 Kaytlin Melvin 5:58.619



Round 7
La Bresse, France - August 25 - 26


Big Minnaar is the only man to have beaten Aaron Gwin this season doing it twice now. Greg was killing it all day absolutely pinned through the second steep section where many were struggling. Never bet against him...

The last time the downhill World Cup circus visited the mid-eastern French town of La Bresse was for round 6 of the 2011 race series. Although the area's not famed for its mountainous terrain, the La Bresse track was a favourite with riders harking back to tracks of the late 90's. With flat-out grassy turns separated by rockier and gnarly sections, riders loved the speed on offer. The 2018 track has not yet been revealed, but with the available terrain, we can hope that it'll share similarities with the 2011 track.

Josh Bryceland had a rough day. He had a blazing run going until the last 50m. he blew his feet off the pedals and sailed off the the finish line gap with no hands or feet on the bars. Luckily Josh was okay and smiling in the pits a few minutres ago pride hurt but body not damaged.

World Championships
Lenzerheide, Switzerland - September 8 - 9


Myriam Nicole has the momentum in the bid for the overall she ll relish the two classic tracks coming up next. Mont Sainte Anne and Val di Sole.

Like Leogang, Lenzerheide has taken some criticism for its bike-park feeling track but for what it lacks in technical challenges, it makes up for with a need for the utmost of precision - even the smallest of errors can put riders well off the racing line, stripping them of seconds and places at the finish line. Previous visits to the seemingly always-dusty Swiss track have been won by Danny Hart and Greg Minnaar exclusively, while in the women's race it's Rachel Atherton and Myriam Nicole who share the spoils. Remaining virtually unchanged since it was first used as a World Cup track in 2015, we're sure that riders will welcome any changes for the 2018 World Champs.

 With so many awesome Dh tracks all over the world why are we still seeing the same tracks more than 10 years in a row? I'm a big fan of having a round every year in Scotland but would much prefer to see more variety.
  • + 59
 The quality of the track itself is only part of the requirements needed for a WC venue. Venues also have to be willing to stump a fair amount of cash to host as well.
  • + 29
 a track is not a venue without a promoter. most local governments and councils also sponsor events. Mont saint anne has had events annually since 92, not because its a nice track (it is an awesome track though), but because they put on an excellent event.

 We need 10 races!!! It’s not that much to ask for, and it will make overalls that much more exciting and meaningful. Currently there are not enough races to truely gauge which racers are the fastest. EWS should start a DH series. Not like UCI would ever help DH become an Olympic sport and that’s literally the only reason DH should stay with UCI

 I have a request: Show a plot of all track profiles, on a standardized scale so we can actually compare length and steepness directly. Ideally all on one plot, but otherwise on a standard scale, perhaps each individually but with another track as a benchmark (i.e. FW or MSA, something super classic that everyone knows) in a light-grey so that everyone can see differences easily...

The only issue I see here is that starting elevations vary a lot, so either show them all as total relief, or just plot them all on one, but list the reliefs next to the track name.

 RE: MSA description above... "Luckily the weather was fairly consistent across both the men's and women's elite races and Gwin pipped podium new-comer Dean Lucas to the win by a one-second margin."

This is positively-WRONG. Your journalists need to go back, and rewatch this race. Gwin rode down in a torrential downpour and still beat everybody (in what some say may be the best DH race run ever). Dean lucked-out on the weather, like many. It was nowhere near "fairly consistent".

 So pumped for the season, but still hoping for some changes down the road. There should be an event in the US. Make it happen UCI. If no one is stepping up to the plate, knock on some doors and remove the barriers to making this happen. I'm not American, but I think anyone can see why an event in the US makes sense. Birthplace of the sport, amazing terrain and a huge public. Same goes for BC. What a joke not to host an event in the sports hottest destination.
  • + 11
 you'd be surprised how many people in our country think mountain bikers are just insane hoodlums trying to injure themselves irresponsibly and build illegal lines and run people off trails.... I think it might come down to the expense of healthcare as well, safer to drink beer and watch football with the Mrs, but also the "freeride" era wasnt good for relations with the general public IMO, and with many (old crotchety rich people) i still feel the looks of disapproval as i ride by.

 www.pinkbike.com/photo/496944 this event was gonna be the most lit freeride comp this town would have ever seen, but the day of the competition, when everyone had shown to ride, the police were blocking the entrance. no chutes and ladders comp ever took place. sad day in our local mtb freeride history. i still walk up there sometimes and get nostalgic

 @dthomp325: ive read that theyre working on expanding tracks into the creekside zone for that reason, whistler wants a world cup, and they certainly have enough money to put up, but closing down their bike park to the public during a uci sanctioned event would be a giant revenue loss from what i understand.

 @lyleo: The existing Canadian Open course seems like it'd be suitable for a WC course, so I don't know why they'd need to expand to Creekside to host, plus they have plenty of trails, there is no reason to shutdown the bike park for WC. They don't shutdown during Crankworx or other races they host now.
  • + 1
 @dthomp325: the uci has much more strict rules for who can be on or around the course, im no expert but, from my understanding the bike park could not operate as it normally would if they hosted a uci wc in the bike park trails, but i agree, the tracks of wc quality are already there, it just always comes down to how much money is on the line i guess

 Yes, we're all entitled to our own opinions. The Croatian track looks like junk. Super jagged and heinously narrow at times.

 Comes down to $$$$$ i believe is a million dollars the fee the UCI charges. Most resorts or dont have the money or dont think they will get a return in their investment. They are plenty of resorts in the USA that are worthy of a DH UCI event, is not only the track but the infrastructure to support such an event. If the UCI will charge less for those events most likely there will be more events in the calendar and because of the increase in events number they will make more money.

 John Oliver covered this already in one or more of his shows. Actually its about FIFA, but if you replaced FIFA with UCI it would be the same shit. Remember, this is an organization that protected the biggest doper in all of sports history. They dont give a $hit about "$port".
  • + 2
 @Boardlife69: right. Its about US resort ownership rightfully viewing UCI as a for-profit business, and not liking the idea of hosting an event at a loss so that UCI can make money. I think many Euro hosts are willing to do that break even deal because of the tourism dollars WCDH brings in the rest of the year.

 Tons of great options in the US, just sad the UCI wants the taxpayer to subsidize their profits.

 I was there last year from Massachusetts. I didn't pay anything except to take the gondola up to the top of the mountain, I walked down the course to take pictures and video. I later found out I should have bought a pass for hiking access, but I am not sure that was true as no one ever asked me for a pass. It was a great event, this year I am bringing my bike so I can ride the trails, so I will buy a pass to get up top. I will also make sure to rent a DH rig for a couple of my days there. It was the most amazing birthday weekend I ever had. Have fun.

 It's free, unless you need to use the gondola. I usually just walk up and bring a case of beer!
