- 4-Cross Track In Making

4X track designer Phil Saxena has been getting up early these days here in Maribor to avoid the mid-day heat. He has been here since last week, building the brand new 4X track on the new Maribor venue by the gondola bottom station. He will be here until Thursday and then he'll be back the week before the event to fine tune the track.

The new track on the moderate ski slope will be taking a trip into the woods and back and will feature some elements that were never seen before in 4X racing.

More on this with Phil's commentary later this week when he, the crew and the machinery make it to the bottom of the hill.

- Webcam On Spot

The http://www.pohorje.org/ website presents a new webcam, showing the bottom of Čop ski run, the location of finish area for all three disciplines of Nissan UCI Mountain Bike World Cup final (olympic cross country, downhill and 4-cross) this September.

These days you can catch a glimpse of Phil and big yellow machines. You'll need a bit of luck since you can only see the finish area and the last pile of dirt. But the camera will be getting a wider lens soon so you will be able to see more of the venue.
