The Covid-19 situation has messed up plans all over the world and so happened with Baltic Downhill Cup. First race was supposed to take place in the beginning of June in Ignalina (Lithuania), but now it's moved to August and Kiviõli started out the racing season. Kiviõli is a small mining town in northeast Estonia. The race takes place on an old semi-coke hill that is now used for skiing, biking and other outdoor entertainments.
Everyone has been itching to race again. This time we had 30% more riders participating and the junior category was packed with 23 young guns which shows that the future is bright. Saturday started out sunny, but windy and turned rainy in the afternoon. On sunday morning it was still raining, but the sun came out at midday and dried the race tracks. Track builders did a great job with new sections for both tracks and tried to keep it challenging for elite riders, but doable for the less experienced. All in all the competition was a major success and definitely triumphed previous ones. We promise it's going to get even better.
