Oh Lourdes! Claudio is back for a new year of World Cup course previews

Words by Red Bull | Images by Red Bull

A new track awaits the world’s fastest as they make their way to Lourdes, France, for the opening round of the UCI MTB World Cup.

Join Claudio Caluori, with special guest, Loïc Bruni, as they take to the French hillside for the first course preview of 2015.

Lourdes is famous for it’s religious pilgrimages, holy water and miracles so it’s only apt that a huge crucifix acts as the backdrop for the start gate as the riders look out over the holy town.

There’s no gondolas at this round and riders have to take an old train up the steep hillside to the top of the hill.

Follow more of Claudio’s antics @claudio_caluori and keep up with his track building projects at Velosolutions.

Will we be seeing any miracles come race day? Tune in on April 12 to watch live coverage of the racingWatch the UCI World Cup LIVE on Red Bull TV – available online and on mobile via Android, iOS and Windows Phone.
