UCI World Championships 2012…

UCI World Championships 2012 @ Leogang, Austria – this weekend (image courtesy of RedBull.tv)

 

Well, it’s come ’round again already…doesn’t seem like a year ago the Danny Hart had everyone on the edge of their seats with that amazing run in the Champery (Swiss Alps) mud to take the 2011 Downhill title back to the UK.  In fact it’s worth another watch to get us all in the mood for this weekend…

 

 

Just awesome!…the bad news is, Danny is out with a shoulder injury so can’t defend his crown this year 😦  but do we think Gee & Rachel Atherton can pull off a brother-sister double for Great Britain?…it’s definitely possible.  We’ll just have to wait and see what Sunday brings and keep an eye on the weather, as I think that could prove to be the deciding factor…

 

Red Bull are showing LIVE covereage of the 4X (Saturday 1st Sept) and Downhill (Sunday 2nd Sept) mens & womans finals this weekend with the Cross Country (Saturday 8th Sept) and Cross Country Eliminator (Sunday 9th Sept) events next weekend

 

Watch it all LIVE here!  🙂

 

The 4X and especially the DH will be worth a watch for sure…it’s just insane how fast these guys & girls go!  Here’s Peaty doing a head-cam run of the Leogang course they’ll be riding the weekend;

 

All the info you need is on the Leogang 2012 website;
