It’s that time again and we are back racing World Cup Downhill this weekend in Lenzerheide, Switzerland. It’ll be bike park style racing with wide open berms, high speed jumps and a modified course for 2022 with the top section being altered to keep things spicy. Will Amaury Pierron prove too fast in Lenzerheide or will someone else rise from the competition at his heels? Here’s your live broadcast times….

Last year saw the French battle it out for the top spot with the fastest men and women on the planet testing their limits against the clock. Loris Vergier was dominant in the final taking the win over Loic Bruni and Thibaut Daprella. This year Bruni might not be challenging for the win with his come back unlikely after breaking his collarbone at Fort William, but it should be very soon we see him on track.
The Women’s field has more depth than ever and last year’s winner Miriam Nicole is always a threat at Lenzerhiede. Will this be the race we Rachel Atherton come back to World Cup racing and challenge Camille Balanche’s outstanding form this year? Or will Vali Holl find her feet and take the win?
Our money is on Loris Vergier for the men’s category and we reckon that Miriam has what it takes to make it back to back wins for Lenzerheide. Tune into Red Bull TV to watch it live as the action unfolds…..
