WATCH the TEASER for the Tour

Lourdes has been and gone

And what a competition it was indeed.

The downhill elite sure won’t be forgetting it in a hurry. The carnage was there for all to see throughout the weekend and on race day there was no let up. The French hill continued to claim its share of mechanicals, punctures, crashes and face plants, with the dry and dusty track full of holes from the continuous use over the weekend.

Catch the thrills, spills and excitement from Lourdes with RED BULLS finals highlights in the player below.
