Among all the ways to experience the mountains with a bicycle, downhill riding is rapidly expanding, especially among young people. It is one of the “gravity” disciplines because it uses the force of gravity and is for those who want to try out their equilibrium skills and ability to choose the most exciting and appropriate paths to their abilities.
The descents range from 2 to 5 km and their difficulty depends on the slope and obstacles on the trail. The obstacles are natural or artificial: jumps, gradients, sections of broken rocks and roots.
