DOWNHILL MOUNTAIN BIKE WORLD CUP IN LOURDES
The Lourdes Mountain Biking Club is organising the Downhill Mountain Bike World Cup for the third year running. This sole French leg of the worldwide circuit will take place from 28th to 30th April 2017 on the slopes of the Pic du Jer.
Lourdes to host the World Cup for the third time!
Having been seduced by their prior high-quality organisation, the UCI has once again handed over this leg of the Mountain Bike World Cup to Lourdes and its dynamic mountain biking club for the third consecutive year.
In 2015 the UCI awarded Lourdes for being the best event in the Downhill Mountain Bike World Cup thanks to it offering high quality slopes to riders from all over the world where each one must show their riding skills at the risk of falling!
