The 2019 International Cycling Union (UCI) Mountain Bike Downhill World Cup tour is set to continue in Leogang in Austria this weekend.
The event at Bikepark Leogang comes hot on the heels of last weekend's stop in the Scottish town of Fort William, where world champion Rachel Atherton of Great Britain defied tough conditions to claim victory in the women's race and France's Amaury Pierron triumphed in the men's equivalent.
Atherton and Pierron were also victorious at last year's edition of the Leogang event.
It was Atherton's third triumph and Pierron's first.
