Video: Luca Shaw's Lousa World Cup Course Preview

Oct 28, 2020
by James Smurthwaite  

bigquotesJump on board with Luca Shaw X Burgtec for a taste of the dirt here in Lousā.

This track is nuts! Tonnes of fresh loam, sketchy off-camber sections snided with roots, and high-speed sections with big tables for good measure. It's the all-you-can-eat buffet of tracks for sure. Time to fill our boots.

 A 4:40 track for Luca is like a 9:00 track for me. North Carolina native putting it down!!

 Even better, Google Translate tells me that 'vido' in Portuguese means 'lively'. Which seems to suit this course quite well.

 A world cup truck that actually looks fun to casually ride... No way!

 My thoughts too! Looks like a properly fun trail, and not as much of a white-knuckle death ride. I'd be curious how it actually rides... video tends to mellow out things...
