Good afternoon! We are in Veli Losinj Wow! It’s beautiful here, I’m in love! Here is the first stage of the UCI downhill world championship We will try to get involved in this downhill world Will they let us do it with the tandem? And here we go for a ride just to show Veli Losinj on an incredible sunny day She wants us to go to the downhill of the guys who are in the downhill world championship after a bottle of wine No, we did not drink anything. The problem is that it’s going to be very hard to climb up there. On the last day of our race we climbed up there 250 meters above the sea line So climbing is going to be kind of rough, getting down is going to be easy Isn’t that “coming down every saint helps”? On our last day in Croatia We were going up here. The first climb of the day We were already dying when getting up here. Where the first dh championship starts downhill world championship We understand it’s like this there comes a van with team at a time I shouldn’t put and edit some race footage because there are restrictions So everything they should look and ok “that’s ok”. So it’s redbull! Starts tomorrow! but we do not want to know about tomorrow tomorrow you can go and watch on redbull channel We just want to show backstage.
