My sport

Downhill is a sport involving mountain bikes. The riders race
on downhill tracks of a range
of difficulties, between 2 and 7 km
in length.

During competitions the bikes
can reach speeds of over 80 km/h
(50 mph). Downhill mountain
biking has formed part of the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) schedule since 1993, and the world cup is held every year between the end of August and mid-September.

“To begin with I switched to downhill for fun, but I immediately felt that this was the sport for me”.
