‘That Was Not An Orgasm By The Way. It was Just Pure Fear!’ – The Course For The Downhill World Cup This Weekend Looks Crazy…

Claudio Caluori brings us the preview from the final World Cup race in Meribel!

We’re in Meribel this weekend for the final stop off on the mountain bike World Cup Downhill – and it looks like it’s going to be a crazy weekend!

The course preview from Claudio Caluori is definitely one of the things we’re going to miss when the season is done, but he’s left us with a hilarious cracker.

Along with the rocks, there’s plenty of roots and not much pedalling. It’s going to be gnarly.

“That was not an orgasm up there. It was just pure fear,” the rider yells out gloriously while taking on one of the course’s many rock sections.

Along with the rocks, there’s also plenty of root sections and not a whole lot of pedalling on the top segment at least. It’s the first time the World Cup has ever visited Meribel – and it looks like it’s going to be gnarly.

Will Josh “Ratboy” Bryceland triumph? Will Troy Brosnan fight back? It’s going to be a close one – so take a look at the preview up top and let us know what you think!
