What is Super D?


What is Super D?

Super D is a cross between downhill and cross-country racing.

Definition: Best described as a downhill cross country race, Super D is a mix between the two disciplines and is held on the type of downhill trails one would find on a cross-country course. However, atypical of a downhill race, Super D riders will encounter short uphill sections that require significant pedaling. Consequently, all-mountain/trail bikes are the bike of choice for most Super D riders.
