What is the difference between downhill and freeride?
Downhill is the name given to the descent on a partly paved, partly unspoiled course in the Bike Park. This is about dealing with this distance as fast as possible. The downhill track in Leogang is the World Cup and only recommended for advanced bikers. Most of the bike park routes are FREERIDE tracks, but are falsely referred to as downhill. Of course, it's also downhill on freeride tracks!
