Schladming World Cup Preview

UPDATE: Just sat in Salzburg Banhnhof (thats station to you) chewing on a Schnitzel, pinching wifi and waiting for the 12:15 to Schladders. Weather here is sunny, but word is “rain” down Schladming way. As soon as I get to the Big S I’ll sprint up the hill and grab a few track photos and video, should all be up on Dirt UK tea time all being well.

The final round of the UCI MountainBike World Cup is just a few days away in Schladming, Austria. DirtTV will be flying out there tomorrow morning to bring you all the news and views from round 8, the final.
