3 April 2019 | By billy1979
Over the years, the UCI Downhill World Cup in Saalfelden Leogang has witnessed spectacular racing and truly incredible stories. No one has however left a mark on the event as lasting as Aaron Gwin.
Next to four wins in eight years, including a three-in-a-row winning streak from 2015-2017, the American Downhill racer is probably best remembered in Saalfelden Leogang for his spectacular chainless winning run in 2015. Considering his success at this iconic location, it’s no surprise that he considers the `Speedster’ his favorite race track on the World Cup circuit. But how does the five-time World Cup Overall Champion manage to climb to the top of the podium in Leogang year after year? Directly after the Mercedes-Benz UCI Downhill Mountain Bike World Cup 2019 in Saalfelden Leogang, Aaron Gwin will answer that question himself.
The three-day (G)winning Camp in Bikepark Leogang starts with the arrival of the participants and a Meet & Greet with Aaron Gwin on the day after the finals of the Leogang World Cup round, Monday, June 10. Next to individual skill- and riding technique coaching with Aaaron Gwin on the trails in and around Bikepark Leogang, camp participants can look forward to in-depth insights into how the five-time World Cup Overall Champion prepares and trains for races. One of the main focuses of the camp will be the track walk, the search for the fastest lines and how to translate a planned strategy into a run. With individual feedback and video-review sessions, Aaron Gwin will help camp participants find confidence and thereby speed by utilizing proper technique and finding the right mindset. Along the way, Aaron Gwin’s mechanic, John Hall, will further support camp participants with tips on bike- and suspension set up.
