Snowshoe Mountain, WV Playing Host To UCI MTB World Cup This Week

UCI World Cup | Snowshoe Mountain

Snowshoe is the largest ski resort in the southeast, but did you know that the resort is an annual stop on the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup circuit?

The mountain’s bike park is world-renowned, and the world’s best riders will be ripping it up from today through September 19th to experience the best of what West Virginia has to offer.

Red Bull’s Eliot Jackson went to a practice session to preview the course, and it’s got me all amped up to watch world class mountain biking take place not too far from where I went to school.

Let’s go Mountaineers!

Red Bull Bike“No Downhill MTB race can compare to a World Cup double-header at the end of the season. There will be a lot to gain & a lot to lose during a full week of DH racing on one of the most technical tracks out there. Eliot Jackson walked the Snowshoe course during first practice to investigate. He was lucky enough to bump into the likes of Aaron Gwin, Myriam Nicole, Loris Vergier, Loic Bruni, Amaury Pierron & Mikayla Parton who helped him understand the challenge they face in West Virginia.”
