The DH track in Val di Sole is known for being one of the most technically demanding tracks in the world with an average 22% slope gradient that along several sections reaches a 40% gradient. The track begins with a fast flow section with banks, a thrilling road gap and several jumps with a counter slope landing. From here the track enters right into the wood, where all the action and the most famous features of the Val di Sole track start: rocks, roots, elevated slope gradients and hair raising sections that cut right through the forest where every year thousands of incredible spectators literally hold their breath as they watch these amazing athletes race down the track at top speed. After the world champs, the track line has been modified and additional curves have been added to this 3.15 minute race where athletes reach the bottom of the track with an average speed of 40km/h. These athletes are just like race drivers on a track. The final section of the track called “the hell” hasn’t been changed at all, a wall of rocks and roots right before the Pippo Jump, where the most fearless will take a 20 m dive into the air. Guaranteed LIVE excitement
