With times tighter than ever before winning a Downhill World Cup has become incredibly 

difficult. But that does not stop Norco Factory Racing riders Sam Blenkinsop, Joe Smith and Henry Fitzgerald from trying. As Joe puts it: ‘Every race I try as hard as I can.’ 

In Norco Factory Racing’s latest video Race Day we follow Sam, Joe and Henry in their pursuit of the top step at one of the hardest races of the year, Val di Sole, which this year proved even more challenging due to the treacherous weather conditions.

The team gives a detailed look into their preparation in the days leading up to the race and talks about all the things that have to click in order to win a World Cup: from line choice to mind state and from training to bike set-up. Because like Sam says: ‘It can be a click here or a click there and you’ll be on the money. Winning.’
