Downhill World Cup
Saturday, august 2
Adrenaline and speed!
Downhill World Cup is a race against the clock in which the rider negotiates a succession of fast and technical passages, usually within 4 minutes. The participant must demonstrate courage as well as sharp technical and piloting skills in order to make their way through tree roots, banked sections, bumps, jumps and other natural obstacles. With many technical sections and high-speed portions, Mont Sainte-Anne’s downhill course is one of the most physically demanding on the World cup circuit.
Sit on our bleacher to watch the race. Directly in front of the finish you will have the best view!
Extensive refurbishing of the track has been carried out in recent weeks!
The finish line remains unchanged from last year’s since the athletes’ reviews were very positive: 100 meters higher up the mountain with two jumps at the end of the course to ensure exciting, gravity induced finishes.. We will keep the World Championships line, which will now take a more direct route riddle with jumps. Approximately 2.9 km in length.
It is gravity till the end!
