Video: Winning Runs from World Cup DH Maribor Round 1

Oct 16, 2020
by Sarah Moore  

First UCI Mountain Bike Downhill World Cup race of the season, first Mountain Bike Downhill World Cup race of the decade. And what a race it has been! Maribor, Slovenia treated the riders with a mixture of mud, slippery roots & sharp rocks.

At the end of the day, victory in both women's and men's race went to France with Marine Cabirou & Loris Vergier taking the top spots on the podium. Now, just one more day until we get to see them race again!

Watch the full race here.

 So good to be back! (In my living room that is, wishing I was French, 23, and talented)

 Wishing you were French, 23, talented and in my living room. Oh, and female. And had no morals

 @mikekazimer: I’m lost, 2 rounds on the same track? Appreciate they might want to keep the season in 1 continent but gotta spread it out a bit.

 @tails1: two different tracks, embrace 2’s track is largely run on the same as today’s race but there’s 4 or 5 sections which deviate from today’s.

 @freerideglory: cheers, I did have a look on the UCI website but it’s not exactly user friendly.

 Can anyone figure out why the f*ck Red Bull are STILL putting "Watch __________'s winning run from Maribor" on their home screen as soon as you go on bike. It's so f*cking annoying for people not in Europe who watch the replay broadcast

 I have watched it about 5 times now and I don't have a clue what you are talking about.

 I went for a muddy root and rock strewn ride this evening. I was afraid the whole time of my front tire washing out. Much respect to the racers. It's a freaky feeling sliding around like that and they attack it with abandon.

 I'm still sitting here wondering the mindset of the teams that didn't run mudders.
