Leogang WC Course Preview: Claudio gets loose

Words by Red Bull | Images by Red Bull, Bartek Woliński

Too much excitement from the Swiss, as he chases Greg Minnaar and samples some Leogang dirt.

Fresh from Scotland and his World Cup win, Greg Minnaar joins course commentator Claudio Caluori down the Leogang track. With some brand new sections for this year, it’s a blind run for Minnaar – who had not yet ridden the updated sections before. 

Watch below as an overly-confident Claudio chases him down.

The Austrian round, held in Leogang Bike Park, is a divisive one for riders. Some of them love the track and the flat out speed and the tight race times it produces, whereas others are not too fond of the groomed trails.

However, this year there’s brand new sections to add some variety to the course – check back tomorrow to see how the riders get on with the new course during practice.

You may think Minnaar is riding slightly tentatively to begin with, but we should mention that he didn’t want to walk the course in advance (unlike Claudio) so as not to get an advantage over the other riders – so he’s riding this blind.

Look out for some extra information along with Claudio’s standard commentary as we show you his speed, heart rate, G-force, and more stats thanks to the team at LITPro.

Don’t forget that you can watch all the action LIVE from Leogang UCI World Cup on Sunday, June 14 right here. Or keep up to date with the action on the RedBull.com/bike Facebook page.
