2014 Downhill World Cup: Cairns Course Preview

This weekend sees the World Cup circus return to the Australian jungle in Cairns, the host venue of the memorable 1996 World Championships, where a moto-looking Shaun Palmer made his World Champs debut and contrasted the skinsuits of the time, nearly snatching victory from Nicolas Vouilloz in the process.

Anyway, enough with getting sidetracked looking back in time, below is Claudio Caluori’s veggie-eyed-preview (watch it to find out what we’re on about) of the 2014 course, complete with shrieks, moon attacks and high speeds. This is going to be one hell of a race!
