Marcelo Gutierrez Gets Out Of Control

Only a few hours before last weekend’s DH Pro Race in Nordkette it started pouring rain and the course changed from a tough piece of technical track into a muddy, slippery nightmare.

‘It was insane how much mud there was,’ Marcelo remembers, ‘but I managed to control my bike and my nerves and ended up with the best time of the day.’ The Nordkette Singletrail is one of Europe’s steepest, longest, and most challenging downhill tracks. It’s located in an exceptional alpine setting high above the city of Innsbruck and if it’s tough to ride at the best of times, last weekend was surely on a whole new level.
