Oct 29, 2020

bigquotesLoamy off cambers, steep chutes and loose berms. The Lousã World Cup track looks like it has it all and requires full commitment to get it all! Join Rob Warner on his track walk down the first of two tracks here in Lousã, Portugal.

The season finale is about to kick off and we're excited to see the first riders tackling the long and physical track.

 really enjoyed that, rad looking track. Shame a big chunk of the live coverage is probably going to be the pedal, should course designers try to factor that in or is that going too far down the made for tv route?

 @vinay: damm you've put me down the memory lane - had to download that clip as it should never be forgotten. this was truly the golden days of gravity racing - awesome action-packed weekends with 4x on Saturdays and DH on Sundays. Such a shame 4x was dropped, reminded me to be extra mad at UCI aside from all the other stuff Big Grin

 That's exactly what I was thinking. It's a model for a good wallride

 Almost fluent in Portuguese. Now you just need to pronounce LowZan, instead of LooZa! Keep practicing Rob! Wink
