”He’s a good rider. I’m a good racer.”

3 months ago

At the end of a long summer of downhill racing, many of the big teams find themselves in the position of having a pit full of riders each mired in their own very different battles. They can be personal as much as they can be about positions in the UCI DHI World Cup overall.

Trek Factory Racing have a downhill roster that is the envy of many of the big brands. In Bodi Kuhn they have the young and hungry phenom, in Loris Vergier they have one of the most successful and consistent talents of his (or any other) generation and in Kade Edwards they have… Kade!

The British rider has reserves of talent that few can match. Such are his skill levels and touch on a bike that the constraints of the race course and regimen surrounding it can often be a battle. The 2023 season was tough for Edwards – the prodigious talent often seemed unrewarded by the clock.

The Trek Factory Racing Downhill squad raced at the absolute limit in 2023. Nothing came easy, from podiums and champagne one week, to crashes and heartbreak the next. Ride along with Loris Vergier, Kade Edwards and Bodhi Kuhn in one of the most revealing looks at life on the UCI DH World Cup circuit you'll ever see, and learn what it takes — both mentally and physically — to compete in one of the most cruel and thrilling sports in the world.
