Schladming is over and it was a blast! Watch all the unfiltered action from Sunday’s final day of the third iXS Cup round.
After a four-week break the iXS European Downhill Cup returned this weekend inviting the downhill elite to Schladming. The race track at the Planai still is regarded as one of the most popular and favorite tracks of the world, so it definitely is always one of the season’s highlights to return to this place. It is already the fourth EDC season for Schladming and even after a longer break it is no secret that the venue has been established as a fixed part of the international downhill stage once again.
Honestly, the overall conditions could have been better, especially on Friday. The 2.5 km track includes a 600-meter descend and is known to be rather demanding. On top of that, Friday’s weather made it even worse: with a mixture of sunshine, rain and even hail the training session turned into an emotional rollercoaster. It is, however, save to say that above all the riders had loads of fun despite the weather!
