World Champs Preview - Leogang 2012

Aug 13, 2012 at 13:03
by Joe Bowman  

A while back, the Santa Cruz Syndicate, along with a host of other top teams headed out to Leogang to ride/test on the up-coming Leogang UCI World Championship track.

Steve Peat, using the Drift HD Helmet Cam, follows team mate Greg Minnaar, as they give you an insight into what you can expect, in a few weeks time...*

Looks to me like there's been some serious manicuring going on, with many of the technical root sections being taken out. Which could mean some seriously fast, tight racing.
