Loic Bruni was more than a little outspoken after the Lourdes World Cup Downhill. With the top qualifiers copping insane wind and rain, it’s easy to see why they were critical of the organising body for not trying to either speed up proceedings or work like surf/snow events and push back till weather permitted. With the UCI struggling to understand disc brakes in road cycling, it makes us wonder if they still have a valid place in downhill…. Regardless of the if’s, but’s and maybe’s, facts are Loic rode in atrocious conditions and yep, maybe that’s racing, but just watch and check the wind…. After months of preparation, you’d be gutted to have no control over your run either.
