Social Round Up - Val di Sole World Cup DH 2019

Aug 2, 2019
by Aidan Oliver  



The infamous Black Snake of Val Di Sole is back for another year. The Black Snake track has been on the circuit for over a decade and it has maintained a fearsome reputation and produced a number of legendary races in its time. It's a relentless assault, brutally rough, with big holes, rocks, and roots strewn liberally throughout its 2km length. Check out all of the behind the scenes goings-on from social media.
