MTB team Trbovlje has been really busy this winter building a world cup track and organizing the first downhill event of this magnitude on the Lošinj Island in Croatia. The team has been organizing races since 1999 in their hometown Trbovlje in Slovenia, and five years ago they have started collaborating with local club AC Lošinj and hosted some races for Slovenian and Croatian Cups, and last year also a UCI C1 class race.
But the World Cup is a whole different game. There is no access for machinery, so practically the whole track had to be hand build (exception are first 200 meters from the start). Water and all building materials were carried on foot, and human power was used to create all of the lines.
