This is the new Finish area

This is the new Finish area

The downhill World Cup race in Maribor is something special every year. As we have already announced, this year it will be marked by the new location of the Finish arena. This part of the track will be even more attractive, even more spacious, with a great view on the finish part of the track. “Just before the finish line, there will be an attractive jump and the riders will hear loud cheering of the fans even 500 meters before the finish line,” said the head of the competition, Iztok Kvas.

The competitors are already looking forward to the novelties, but it’s no secret that they consider the track in Maribor to be very demanding. “The new Finish Area is great, especially because of the spectators. In Maribor, it will be very attractive at the same time,” said the best Slovenian racer in women elite, Monika Hrastnik, who hopes that the weather will also be favorable for the competition. “We’ve had rain at every World Cup race this season, so I’m hoping for dry weather. It is true that all the women elite ride well in dry weather, and there are more mistakes in the rain, but it is still better if the terrain is dry. ”

 

Due to the new location of the Finish arena, this year the Team area will be located in the parking lot opposite the Habakuk Hotel, and the number of parking spaces will be even more limited than usual. Therefore, all fans who will watch the spectacle live are therefore advised to plan their arrival under Pohorje on 14 or 15 August by bicycle or bus number 6.

 

Tickets are on presale online. Visitors will be required to show a covid-19 conformation (full vaccinated, recovered from covid-19 in the past 6 months or HAGT/PCR test not older than 48/72 hours).

 

Tekma za svetovni pokal v spustu je vsako leto nekaj posebnega. Kot smo že napovedali, jo bo letos zaznamovala nova lokacija ciljne arene. Še bolj atraktivna, še bolj prostorna, z odličnim razgledom na zadnji del World Cup proge. »Tik pred ciljem sledi še atraktiven skok in nato prihod tekmovalcev v ciljno areno, kjer jih bodo pozdravili navijači,« je povedal vodja tekmovanja Iztok Kvas.

Tekmovalci se novosti že zelo veselijo, progo v Mariboru pa ocenjujejo kot zelo zahtevno. »Nov cilj je super, sploh zaradi gledalcev. V Mariboru pa bo še zelo atraktiven hkrati,« je povedala najboljša Slovenka Monika Hrastnik, ki upa, da bo tudi vreme naklonjeno tekmovanju. »Na vsaki tekmi za svetovni pokal v letošnji sezoni smo imeli dež, tako da upam na suho vreme. Res je, da vsa dekleta takrat odpeljemo progo dobro, v dežju pa je prisotnih več napak, a je vseeno boljše, če je teren suh.«

 

Zaradi nove lokacije ciljne arene bo letos Team area na lokaciji parkirišča nasproti hotela Habakuk, število parkirnih mest pa še bolj omejeno kot sicer. Vsem navijačem, ki si bodo spektakel ogledali v živo zato svetujemo, da načrtujejo prihod pod Pohorje 14. ali 15. avgusta s kolesom ali z avtobusom številka 6.
