Cairns MTB World Cup downhill pits - gallery

Prototypes, components and bikes from Norco, Giant and Specialized

Round two of the UCI mountain bike world cup was held in Tropical North Queensland of Australia. Consistent and heavy rain turned the track greasy and the pits even dirtier, which saw riders scrambling for ways to keep themselves upright and the bikes clean.

Some highlights include a Norco carbon downhill bike, suspension tuning from the Giant Factory team, a variety of non-downhill specific bikes from Specialized, prototypes from Polygon and general shenanigans caused by the mud.

Take a scroll through our gallery and see the latest gear used by the world's fastest gravity riders.
