World Championships 2021: VAL DI SOLE

UCI MTB WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS DOWNHILL DHI

This past weekend, the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships presented by Mercedes-Benz took place in Val di Sole (Trentino, Italy) and the KHS Pro MTB downhill race team was there!

This downhill event features the black snake track. The Blake Snake challenges the laws of gravity and physics, traversing that thin line between love and hate for many DH specialists, as any mistake is costly.

This track is an extreme challenge even for the most skilled riders. The track is 2,4km long with 540 meters of elevation loss at an average of 22% and peaking up to 40%. In addition to well-known segments such as The Hell – Nomen Omen, the Red Bull Section and the Val di Sole Jump, this season saw the debut of the 15-meter Trentino Jump. The final section of the Black Snake is aptly named “The Hell”: a wall made of rocks and roots lying right before the Pippo Jump, which takes the athletes to the finish line after an endless 20-meter dive in the air.
