A video

Get a hilarious on-board view of the downhill course at the 2016 UCI Mountain Bike World Championships in Val di Sole, Italy. Claudio Caluori​, Steve Peat​ and Rob Warner​ take us on a breath-taking preview run of the course, all the while keeping up a stream of (somewhat breathless) banter.
