A mass start mountain bike downhill race will be held in Bovec, Slovenia from September 19-21. The “Dowka u Bc”, meaning “Down to Bovec” will be a tough test for riders on the course which has a vertical drop of 1,730 metres and is close to 15km in length.
The race is open to all downhill riders, and organisers are hoping to attract all the big names like Sam Hill, Steve Peat, and the Athertons who will be racing at the UCI mountain bike world cup a week before in Schladming, Austria.
Course inspection and free practice starts on the Friday, with individual qualifying runs on Saturday, followed by the mass start race on Sunday – fastest qualifiers will start at 10am, and the rest will follow at midday.
