World Cup #1 - Maribor - First Steps on Slovenian Soil



We’ve been impatient for a while now but the time has come for the first round of the 2019 DH World Cup! Our two Teams, COMMENCAL VALLNORD DH and COMMENCAL 100% are in Maribor, Slovenia.

On Thursday and Friday, they took advantage of their time to make their mark and see the Slovenian track for the first time. These two days before the start of practice mean the riders can become familiar with their surroundings and the mechanics and staff can build up and make adjustments to bikes ahead of training, qualifying and the big race on Sunday.

Naturally, as it’s the first race of the season, the COMMENCAL VALLNORD DH Team unveils its brand new structure. It will house the mechanics, staff and riders at most races throughout the season.


Qualifiers for the final will be held on Saturday from 12:15pm. You can follow the grand finale for all categories this Sunday, from 9.45am to 13.30pm. You can find schedule for the weekend here.
