Downhill Buzet - an extreme three day bike festival of strenght, adrenaline and joy
Downhill is the most extreme and most attractive discipline in mountain biking. As with alpine skiing, competitors individually, at high speed run down the slope in a race against time. DH course is a combination of forest paths and steep parts of the terrain jumps and other technically demanding elements (rocks, roots, sharp turns, …) and requires a superior psychophysical readiness of the rider as well as adequate equipment.
Unlike similar events in the region, DH Buzet takes place close to urban area. Buzet has an excellent geostrategic position, being located only 10 minutes from Slovenian and 30 minutes from Italian border. That’s surely one of the reasons such a big number of competitors and spectators come to DH Buzet. 400 meters from the town center, 0 meters from the adrenaline.
