After the craziest and weirdest season to date, it feels like it's been and gone just like that. A small town in Portugal, Lousa, hosted our third and fourth final rounds of the World Cup season.
For the fourth consecutive year, Cane Creek Cycling Components has brought together a group of cycling component manufacturers to build a very special bike with a noble purpose. The bike will be raffled with all proceeds directly benefiting the Pisgah Conservancy and their mission to support the well-being and conservation of the Ranger District of the Pisgah National Forest.
After a muddy World Championships the Pivot Factory Downhill team was straight on the road and straight into a double header round at Maribor in Slovenia for round one and two of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup.
Coming in hot straight from a successful Innsbruck Crankworx the team was super keen to get racing again. World Championships are always special with the team pulling on national jerseys and having the honor to represent their home nations and for 2020 all our downhill riders were selected.
Crankworx Innsbruck kicked off with the Dual Slalom. An eighteen-second sprint was a change from the 4-hour Enduro evens the team had just arrived from but the bike handling skills and excitement were the same.
