Hafjell World Championships 2014 | Track Walk Gallery


September has rolled round again and that means one thing, World Champs! It’s the last race of the season and we are all set for an amazing weekend of racing. The track is pretty much the same as it has been at the previous two races, some sections are wider and smoother but whatever the track is like we know that everyone is going to let it all hang out come race day.

This track has only seen one World Cup Men’s winner and he isn’t here this year, Steve Smith is out. After his ankle injury then re-injury this season Smith isn’t going to be able to challenge for the win. There are enough other riders hungry for the stripes though!

RatBoy is coming in relaxed but high on the World Cup overall whilst his team mates hit the track with some considerable experience, of both winning and losing. For others this means more, Troy Brosnan and team mate Aaron Gwin will be both gunning for the win. Aaron hans’t had much luck at Worlds in the past but could this be his year? Brosnan was so close to the title all year but let it slip and Josh took the win. Hill, what can I say? Sam Hill is back and he means business to say he is one to watch seems obvious but he is!

Others to watch? Well there’s a bunch. Gee, Brook Mac, Matt Simmonds, Mick Hannah, Loic Bruni the list goes on and they all have a chance. If you want to let us know who you think will take it then click your vote into our poll right here. Practice will be interesting to see who is up to pace but it’s all down to that one run on Sunday to make it all count.

Dirt will be there all weekend beaming out content and if you want to check out what has gone on so far in the Syndicate pits we’ve got that covered too.
