MTB World Cup 2011

This last weekend saw the UCI World Cup hit Leogang in the Austria, a small ski resort famed as one of the very first bike parks in Europe - we'll bring you an update on the race -soon  and maybe some pics and a story on Leogang, but not just yet - we have Sabah to recover from. 
Meantime the UCI have just announced the dates for next year;'s World Cup - which takes it';s traditional start grid slot in South Africa and ends in Italy. Leogang makes the cut again, as do the 2 British rounds of the series - but those blonde beer lovers will have to sober up this year, as the classic Houffalize round in Belgium will not be happening. Houfalize was always a favourite race for the Chinese girls - who seem to like the steep sides and mud of the Ardennes (or was it the beer?)
