Drew Mozell is currently in Saalfelden Leogang, Austria where he is preparing to compete in the Mercedes-Benz UCI MTB World Cup event there. Drew will be representing Canada in the Junior (U-19) category and will race in the downhill. It sounds like it will be quite the ride for Drew as the event website makes it very clear that the course will be challenging for even the best riders.
"The World Champs track "Speedster", which the downhill elite has to conquer this weekend, is not for the faint of heart! The best reach speeds of up to 65 km / h on the rough terrain. It combines steep passages with demanding root carpets, stone fields, hairpin bends and huge jumps. New since the 2020 World Championship is the passage "Vali's Hell", which provides new excitement to the already familiar track with the Gap Jump!"
We wish Drew the best in this amazing event. He has worked incredibly hard in the weightroom and on local courses to earn this trip to Austria.
