bigquotesExcited to be out here in Lourdes for the first Downhill World Cup of the season. The track looks awesome, with a mix of features, technical rock sections, steep lines, and flat-out turns. YT

bigquotesWe’ve turned up to the first UCI World Cup. Super stoked to be back on the UCI World Cup scene again for this year, though we’d start off with some culture and explore the town that is Lourdes and see the sights of the insane cathedrals. Quick tour through the Scott Downhill Factory pits as well to showcase how everything runs.

Day 2 we walked the entire Downhill track with Amaury Pierron and Loic Bruni, super sick to see what the guys had to say and see what lines they were considering. The track looks insane and I can’t wait to take my downhill bike through the track in practice and times training tomorrow

 Last year the funicular got stricken by the thunder during a big storm.... in summer though.
Several people got injured but nothing catastrophic.

 Man I was just joking about the adding weights to the BB thing on the last Lourdes post... But, here we are...

 Didn't watch the videos yet. Who's adding weight this time?

 @TEAM-ROBOT: Well Brendog said everybody lol. But he's the only one outright showing his mechanic hammering a lead cylinder into his crank spindle.

 @lepigpen: That's hilarious. I guess a year on e-bikes has people convinced of the benefits of some extra unsprung mass low in the bike.
