The UCI Mountain Bike World Cup presented by Shimano is back – bigger and faster than ever before. More teams, more nations and of course, more action.

The downhill and cross-country spectacles will provide a thrilling new season, and Red Bull TV will take you right into the heart of it! Who will climb to the top, who will slip up?

Red Bull TV will deliver 19 broadcasts from nine countries across two continents, live to your favorite device, wherever you may be.
Each edge-of-your-seat broadcast will be hosted by the legendary Rob Warner and Claudio Caluori.

The season will kick off at a new race venue, Lourdes in France, on April 12. The downhill track in the Pyrénées – 2.5km (1.24 mi) long and descending 470m (0.29 mi) – is unknown terrain for most of the athletes. French riders who have challenged for the Coupe de France or trained in the region, like Loic Bruni, may feel right at home down these fast and furious lines. But the reigning Champions from Great Britain will be there, looking to continue their winning streak. Gee Atherton will ride hard to win back the crown from last year’s Champion Josh “Ratboy” Bryceland. Not to mention Gee’s sister, Rachel Atherton, who has more than one bone to pick with 2014 Champion Manon Carpenter.

Round 1 takes off on April 12, 2015 at 12:30pm GMT/ 03:30am PDT/ 06:30am EDT in Lourdes (FRA). Tune in for the ride!

 

From April 11 to August 23, mountain bike fans will be gripped by the downhill and cross-country racing action of 130 teams from 33 countries as they contend in the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup presented by Shimano.
The goal: to triumph above the rest. For the fourth year running, Red Bull Media House will stream 19 races live (7 DHI, 6 XCO Men and 6 XCO Women) on Red Bull TV and redbull.com/bike.

This year, Rob Warner will lead viewers through the races with his sharp and often hilarious commentary. Supporting him in the booth will be Claudio Caluori, already a fan favorite for his course previews last season.
