Gallery: A day at the Windham World Cup

The UCI Mountain Bike World Cup in Windham, New York got underway on Friday.  The only American round of the international series is featuring all three World Cup disciplines: eliminator, cross country and downhill.

Cyclingnews took a look at all three courses, observing some eliminator racing as well as cross country and downhill training.

The World Cup is enjoying perfect weather with sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-70s.  The excellent weather and trail conditions are expected to continue throughout the weekend with the downhill finals on Saturday and the cross country finals on Sunday.
