The Méribel Mountain Biking World Cup - THE DOWNHILL TRACK
From the riders point of view - Claudio Caluori rips it down the downhill track
"Even just walking down, I crashed a couple of times"... "That wasn't an orgasm - that was pure fear"... "This is what all the riders have been asking for - now they have to deal with it... "Albert Einstein you were wrong, I am going light speed"... "This is the exact right track to decide who will be overall World Champion"...
