UCI World cup Maribor track walk. What a day walking this insane downhill track was so rad. I have some amazing memories from this place. After having two World Cup podiums here in the past I always have such great memories.

Were back. A little time at home after our first set of races was a good break, time to recuperate and get ready for the last chunk. Were back at the Slovenian track that is Maribor, but this year we seem to be in some sort of heatwave. 35° degree heat makes for a bone dry and fast course. Here's just a little look at what we are tackling this week.
