The UCI Mountain Bike World Cup is happening right now, so here are a few bikes to get you excited.
Five-time World Champion and current EWS points leader, @SamHill13, is choosing to race his Enduro bike in Cairns. His prototype @NukeproofBikes Mega is similar to what he raced to second place at EWS Whistler, with a few small changes to make it more DH orientated. The biggest change is in the drivetrain, where his SRAM X01 Eagle™ drivetrain has been replaced with the downhill specific SRAM X01 DH. Slowing Sam down are the all-new SRAM Code brakes which have already been raced to both EWS and UCI World Cup Downhill victories in 2017. Up front he is running a RockShox Lyrik RCT3 with the new Charger 2 damper. Handling the bumps out the back is a RockShox Super Deluxe RCT. And, last but not least is a RockShox Reverb Stealth with 1x Remote making sure his seat is always at the correct height. #MTBworlds Photo by @svenmartinphoto | #SRAM
I am in love. Say 👋🏽 to my extra pink, extra sparkly S-Works Epic for world champs this weekend! Thank you so much to @iamspecialized_mtb and @bbcopeland for all the work that went into this badass race machine and for making me feel like such a princess. Cant wait to race it!! 😍🔥💖🌴#sparklewatts #pinkpanther #badbeach #tropicalaf #thisisgoingtobeepic
Like the man himself, @nschurter’s bike performed flawlessly. Equipped with a SRAM XX1 Eagle™ drivetrain, SRAM Level Ultimate brakes and a RockShox Sid World Cup fork, the champ’s @BikeOnScott Spark rode to those six World Cup wins without a single hiccup. #SRAMeagle #ScottSRAM Photo by @svenmartinphoto | #SRAM
Nach dem Regen scheint die Sonne. Nach einem enttäuschenden 25. Rang gestern, freute ich mich umso mehr, dass es auf den 5. Gesamtrang gereicht hat. After the rain comes the sun. Not happy at all about my race yesterday, ended up 25th. Maybe my legs already went to Australia🙈 But anyway I'm really stoked about the 5th place in the overallranking. Without the great support from my family, friends, @focusxcteam and all the sponsors this would not be possible, thank you so much👍 #ucimountainbikeworldcup #5th #srammtb #continentalmtb #northwave #kaskcycling #ksusa #focusbike #asporteyewear #gsgcyclingwear #spitzensportförderungderarmee #sponsersportfood #fussuri #urnerkantonalbank
