  1. The long trip to Australia from Europe may have left Claudio Caluori jetlagged, but like the true professional he is, our man took to the Cairns start gate for the course preview. The Cairns course is like no other on the downhill circuit. The course twists through jungle-infused rainforest on terrain that is predominately volcanic clay-based.
  2. There are rocks, roots and snakes to worry about for Claudio on his way down the tropical course. Click here to view the article
  3. In this episode of Destination Trail, we follow Troy Brosnan to the remote island wilderness of Derby, Tasmania. Jungles, pine forests, dry, rocky river beds—this corner of the world checks all of the terrain and flora boxes, and with only a handful of cafes and pubs to keep the isolated locals occupied, an epic trail network seemed like a natural progression. Join Troy and Specialized Australia employee, Patrick Young, as they leave the stress of the professional DH circuit behind in pursuit of loose singletrack, insights into trail building, and all-around good times.

  4. Situated in the remote northeast corner of Tasmania, Derby was first settled back in 1874 under the name, Brother's Home. In the early days, it was regarded as a small mining town with a reputation for producing a lucrative amount of tin, which inevitably lead to its population surge of 3,000 residents by the end of the Nineteenth Century. With the influx of settlers & workers, the town eventually renamed itself Derby—a nod to the residents' English lineage—and developed a short rail line to neighbouring towns. Perhaps built more out of industrial necessity than convenience, the rapid progress of building and expansion foreshadowed the construction of the Cascade Dam and its containment of nearly 188 million gallons of water. In 1929, after severe, heavy rains, the dam burst, releasing a 12-foot wave of water that flooded the town and the Briseis Mine—the mine behind the dam's construction. The 14 lives lost in the incident marked the only dam break in Australia's history to result in the loss of human life, marring the town in tragedy. In the resulting aftermath, the mines reopened, but closed in the late 1940s. And roughly half a century later, the railway followed suit. Today, the town of Derby enjoys a remote existence that's more in touch with its natural surroundings and history. It's a popular stop along the journey from Launceston to the East Coast, and it plays host to interpretive hiking trails, like the Trail of the Tin Dragon, gem hunting, and of course, a network of mountain bike trails that Troy Brosnan proclaims are "some of the best trails I've ever been on."
  5. Troy tearing apart the Cairns UCI World-Cup DH Course in between experiencing the region and all its attractions. Troy got some quality time on course in the lead up to Round 2 this April, in Cairns, finding the fast lines that w years ago were layered with a foot of brown, sticky mud thanks to a post-cyclone deluge of rain. With round 2 fast approaching, the course is again gearing up to take on the worlds fastest athletes.
  6. For 2014, the UCI MTB World Championships have landed in Norway on what is set to be and incredible weekend of racing. The pits are alive with chatter of who can take the Rainbow Stripes for 2014 and from watching the timed training runs, it appears to be anyone’s race to win. Click here to view the article
  7. Sam Hill jumping the gap. Josh Bryceland: 'Norway is great – track here is on par with some of the better tracks of the world cup season, its nice to end at a decent track like this with a lot of line choice and technical sections.' Josh eyeing the line in the rock gardens during his seeding run. 'There are a few similarities to previous World Champ tracks, lots of berms and jumps – you know, they are all start at the top and finish at the bottom (laughs) - the track here is good, its technical and dry as a bone which we haven’t had at Hafjell before – there is a lot of hype around this one race as its World Champs but the level will be just as high as it has been all season – its going to come down to line choice in the rocks, but more just riding the line you pick well. If I put together a **** hot run I should be OK! But its not going to be an easy track to do that on!!!' Troy Brosnan: Troy assuming the attack position. 'Im feeling really good coming of the world cup season I just had, getting a win in the world cup feels awesome and builds you with a lot of confidence – I want to win for sure you know, just like everyone else but to get those Rainbow stripes means a lot. Im feeling good and feeling confidence – practice has been going well. Timed training was good today, Im not going to lie, I went for it a bit, imitating what would be a qualifying run at usual world cup – I went out there and had a good smooth run which ended up putting me in 5th, it’s around 2 seconds back but I know I can make up that time, its going to be good finals and interesting to see what everyone does – its gonna take some balls to win tomorrow!!!' Steve Peat: 'Its good to be back here in Hafjell – the track here is always awesome, there are quite a few people coming out here to watch so its a good crowd and Yeh, its World Championships, its mint!' 'I have always enjoyed the track here, there are a lot of good aspects and big jumps, I had a good result here last year and hoping for good things this year – on a track like this you just have to be pinned from top to bottom there is now holding back – its going to be won on fractions of a second, its full bore all the way.’ Josh and Steve flying high for Britain. The World Championships comes down to one run and the title will be hotly contended tomorrow at 2pm on SuperSport and Red Bull TV. Josh Bryceland comes in to Norway as the overall UCI World Cup Champion 2014 looking to take the World Championship title here this weekend. Sam Hill is the only rider to match Josh with 2 World Cup wins this season and is a favourite for the 2014 rainbow jersey. Troy Brosnan has had his best season to date and proved to the world that he has what it takes to win. Steve Peat is competing in his 22nd World Championships and is not to be counted out having taken the fastest speed through the speed trap. All will be decided on the hill tomorrow! Men's timed session results here. Women's timed session results here. Sam Hill. Sam Hill.
