UCI Downhill World Cup Round 1 – Lošinj, Croatia

Use the Best Forget the Rest

///UCI Downhill World Cup Round 1 – Lošinj, Croatia

Beautiful place to have a race.

Lošinj is a Croatian island in the northern Adriatic Sea (Cheers Google for the info).

The build up to this race was of a bike crushing course full of rocks that would eat rims for breakfast and slash tyres for fun.

Meanwhile the Burgtec Black Tape Project was in full swing. If you were a pro and had the choice of what parts to run what would you choose??? I know I know what you're thinking I would choose Burgtec components too!

In the off season we had been sorting out the Santa Cruz Syndicate team parts for testing and guess what? They loved them!

The Syndicate riders Luca Shaw, Loris Vergier and Greg Minnaar are all using Burgtec Ride Wide DH bars, DM MK3 Stem and Xpress Seatpost on their Santa Cruz V10s

As you can imagine we are stoked the best race team have chosen to use Burgtec!

Anyway back to racing

The team scored some fantastic results

Luca Shaw 2nd (best ever result).

Loris Vergier 8th

Greg Minnaar 13th

With the Syndicate also topping the team rankings.

Solid start to the season.
