BILBAO DOWNHILL International Cup.Flying over weels
Daniel Olarra won the Bilbao Downhill with Fernando Olañeta second and Ben Moore (UK) third. Great sunny day to close the season with pure downhill event. We take the plunge to the UCI regulations to face a Spanish Open by next year and more UCI points in the future.
The BILBAO DOWNHILL International Cup will take place next Saturday, December 3rd, in the Bilbao’s well-known Potongo Track.
The Downhill is a modality of mountain biking consisting on going down a hill as quick as possible, in a track distinguished for big slops, impossible courses and dizzying leaps. After the great experience last year of the Bilbao City Downhill, with an amazing influx of audience, we take the plunge to the UCI regulations to face both modalities in the future.
