Already familiar with downhill mountain biking? It may very well be the most adrenaline filled mountain biking discipline: full speed, down off-road trails and tracks in the wood. Downhill bikes are different from normal mountain bikes: a downhill bike is a "full suspension" bike that has both shock absorbers in the front and the back of the bike to soak up bumps that the bike receives as it is traveling down the track, the handlebar is wider providing more stability and increased control, the tires are also wider with knobs for improved grip and stability.
There are numerous downhill tracks in Val di Sole. Several of these tracks were used for the World Championships held in 2008 and once again for the 2016 World Champs. But don't worry, your MTB instructor will take you on the tracks that are suited to your skill level.
