UCI MOUNTAIN BIKE WORLD CUP – WELCOME HOME
The Formula One in Mountain Bike, the Mercedes-Benz UCI Mountain Bike World Cup, returns to the venue, where mountain bike competitions have been held since 1998, and the last World Cup competition was organized in the season of 2010. The WORLD CUP black line with its length of 2.1 km offers adrenaline pleasures of the royal class. Monika Hrastnik, the most successful Slovenian female rider, describes the race course with following words:
»The entire route is interesting and great for spectators. Usually, most visitors spectate the race at the Rock'n Roll section at Trikotna jasa, although I think that the lower part of the course is also interesting because of the compressions. This is the section, where you actually see the difference in speed between the riders and the operation of the bikes. The terrain is very diverse, the track is very fast and you have to keep pace from the start. You must keep the speed you gain in bends and compressions along the whole course. Roots and rocky sections are in wet weather very slippery and this makes the course even more interesting and demanding.«
We are looking forward to a big breathtaking spectacle. Make sure you are a part of it.
