The mountain-bike season is in full swing. Besides the NORBA series stop in the U.S., two European venues will host World Cups this weekend. In Vigo, Spain, the gravity gang comes together for bragging rights, UCI points and prize money in downhill and mountain-cross. Naoussa, Greece is the site of a World Cup marathon. There are also Norway, Swisspower, XCO, and Specialized Cup races on the sixth and seventh (see full 2006 MTB schedule here).
Be sure and check back on Cyclingnews after the weekend to see how this mountain of action shook down.
