Claudio tries to tame Lourdes

Jump onboard for Claudio Caluori’s first downhill course preview of the UCI MTB World Cup season.

Claudio Caluori is back for the first World Cup course preview of the 2016 season. 

Lourdes, France, situated in the mid-Pyrenees is the opening venue for the UCI MTB World Cup. Famed for it's miracles and Christian pilgrimages, the riders will be needing divine intervention to survive this technical course unscathed.

With plenty of rain over the last few days the track is more of a challenge than last year, as Claudio found out... Watch him take on the slippery track in the player above.
