Mountain Biking World Cup 2014 – Round 1 – Pietermaritzburg – 12/13th April

Great news downhill mountain bike lovers – the World Cup starts again this weekend, 12th -13th April 2014!

There are seven World Cup rounds, with the last being held in Méribel on 23rd – 24th August, followed by the World Champs in Hafjell, Norway, on September 6th – 7th.

The first round will take place at the Cascades mountain bike park in Pietermaritzburg (PMB), South Africa. Last year, at the World Champs here, Greg Minnaar and Rachel Atherton won, but many people criticised the track for being too flat and pedally. It certainly was a test of the riders’ fitness and it spoke volumes that Jared Graves came 3rd on his enduro bike!
