Luca and Burgtec take you for a spin down track one out here in Maribor. Chockablock with roots and rocks, it's flat out in the dry! Might be a different story again by tomorrow...

Can't wait to watch all the riders pedal down that road section on the live stream.
(Oct 14, 2020 at 16:49)
Hahahaha nod oubt! I saw that and instantly thought the camera crew got wet over that bit!! hahaha

That last jump to the finish is a bit of a strange layout....
(Oct 14, 2020 at 16:36)
yeah, i thought exactly the same, i was like wtf....
(Oct 14, 2020 at 18:44)
Yeah, seems like they should retape it to force riders to actually hit the jump. Reminds me of the table on La Bresse that Gwin "scrubbed" by leaving the takeoff inside the lip back in 18.

The jump where Remi destroyed himself previously ?
(Oct 14, 2020 at 21:55)
: that one was Leogang i believe
(Oct 14, 2020 at 15:37)
Awesome looking track. Though I would like to see that tree that's cut down to head height on the inside of the corner facing both in and towards the oncoming riders 'adjusted'. 2mins and 33secs in.

Thought the same thing, could be nasty!

"What do you do for a living?"
"I pass at Mach 15 under a wide Kenda banner, that immediately funnels me in a 1-meter wide gap between the trees. If I touch the brakes, I'm fired."

I almost went OTB twice in the office chair watching....... Thank goodness Luca rode it out for me...
(Oct 14, 2020 at 12:04)
Damn...either super stabilization on the camera or he is a helluva smooth rider. Either way, i am jealous.
(Oct 14, 2020 at 17:25)
The new GoPro’s are almost too stable. He’s crazy smooth too obviously which adds to it.
(Oct 15, 2020 at 0:59)
: GoPro Effect hits hard. That track combined with the riding looked so smooth. But wathing the Raw Footage shows how gnarly it is really. Nevertheless great rinding, he makes it look so easy
(Oct 15, 2020 at 1:12)
: yep, I rode this track in the summer and the compression at 2:28 is huge. It's at least 2 meters deep and much shorter than it looks on camera. Really weird element to hit at that speed.
The POV would be much nicer if he used a chest mount. With ultra wide gopro lens and mounted that high, everything on the floor looks small and flat, but in reality, it is a gnarly track.
(Oct 14, 2020 at 11:09)
DO IT LUCA! And that was a strange intro.
(Oct 14, 2020 at 12:08)
That looked a lot better than worlds on race day.
(Oct 14, 2020 at 12:43)
(compared to Leogang)
(Oct 14, 2020 at 11:31)
Lets get these races going, looks good.
(Oct 14, 2020 at 16:00)
tomorrow rains quite a bit !
(Oct 14, 2020 at 16:08)
i see lots of OTB opportunities! cant wait
(Oct 14, 2020 at 11:10)
That looks fun.
(Oct 14, 2020 at 12:20)
Looks like a tamed down version of snowshoe.

They should have just gathered all the racers together for a vote; Race now or later in the rain and mud, its your choice.?
Hike the track do a practice run then Rumble! Spending half a week riding the same track over and over figuring out every ripple is dumb anyway.
(Oct 14, 2020 at 11:13)
That was like at.... you just had a wee bit of 2010 old school Dh, now back to 2019/20 redbull TV racing in the bike park.
Just seemed too controlled, less risk, big berms, flow and carrying speed everywhere. Lets hope it rains to spice it up a little.
Timed training runs all back to very close again too. Kinda takes the shine off the race compared to a new, fresh section of gnarr for the best to race.
(Oct 14, 2020 at 11:30)
Needs more Sam Hill
(Oct 14, 2020 at 11:56)
Keep in mind Maribor has been around that long and the track hasn't changed much. I rode it 4 years ago on a road trip through Slovenia and the track looks almost exactly the same. Definitely not the rowdiest, but still tests riders enough. It definitely makes for a good race.
(Oct 14, 2020 at 12:01)
It will rain tomorrow that's for sure.
(Oct 14, 2020 at 12:39)
you'd think they would invest in a wind jammer
