ON THE SECOND WEEKEND OF APRIL THE UCI DH WORLD CUP 2016 HAS STARTED. AFTER DEBIUT IN 2015 SEASON, THIS IS THE SECOND TIME FOR LOURDES TO WELCOME ONE OF THE BEST GRAVITY RIDERS IN THE WORLD. KELLYS FACTORY TEAM WAS ALSO INVITED FOR THIS AMAZING EVENT! CHECK OUT HOW THE KFT PREPARATION LOOKS!
"After arriving in Lourdes we were very excited. To start preparations for the competition we had to wake up at the early morning - at sunrise. Just after breakfast we did first track walks and training sessions. I want to be well prepared so I focused especially on finding best possible line on the track" - Lubos Stano.
"Firstly we had to prepare our gear. We knew that the track in France is really demanding and want to be sure that our bikes will do the best they can! I used to do it by myself to know everything about my setup and be more aware as a biker." - Rasto Baranek.
"First day the weather was quite nice 'till the clouds appeared on the sky... Wet rocks and roots - it's gonna be hard." - Rasto Baranek.
"And then the rain came at night and everything got wet and slippery..." - Lubos Stano.
"A lot of sticky mud and water pools. O! Muddy Marry!" - Pert Folvarcny.
"We did quite good training sessions. Bicycles worked perfectly even on this muddy conditions. We were prepared for qualifying runs." - Rasto Baranek
"Best riders in the world, difficult track and harsh conditions - the qualification runs were really difficult." - Petr Folvarcny.
"We were really worried about Rasto's crash. Finally he is fine, but he wasn't able to compete along in Lourdes." - Lubos Stano.
