If you fancy getting all " a quiver" then read on.


Gouveia is the starting place for the Maxxis Cup International.

For many years, Gouveia (Portugal) has been the first great event of the international calendar of downhill, with the participation of the best world teams, turning into a classic race that opens the international season. This year, once again, the locality wants to feel the environment of the mountain bike in a country that always has had a great number of fans of downhill.

Next March, 30th we will be able to enjoy a great spectacle in which, in the previous years, there has been the presence of stars of this sport as Fabien Barel, Steve Peat, David Vázquez, Bernat Guàrdia, Tracy Mosley, Fabien Pedemenaud, etc. This international race of downhill will be of UCI C-1 category, continental category.

Gouveia's Maxxis Cup International is an event in which the spectators and participants enjoy a fast and technical circuit which has a final emblematic jump where a great number of cameras take pictures of all the riders.

Last year there was a spectacular participation and it helped to create a great environment of the purest mountain bike.

The inhabitants of the zone will not lose the great opportunity to see the downhillers that will approach up to Gouveia to offer us the best of themselves. We are sure that it will be a great event that will quiver all those that decide to appear there.
