Round Six of the downhill UCI Mountain Bike World Cup kicks off this weekend in Val d'Isère and Claudio Caluori gives us a nail-biting preview of the track in this POV shoot from yesterday.

Aaron Gwin continued his winning streak at Mont-Sainte-Anne and Windham and will be looking to win his fifth consecutive final in this year’s UCI World Cup. In the women's competition, Rachel Atherton will be looking to clinch her third consecutive win.

Scott11 team manager and former Red Bull athlete Claudio Caluori also features in episode three of Rob’s Dirty Business, which has been racking up hits across the biking world. In this latest episode, Rob Warner calls into question Claudio's management skills.

Claudio battled through some technical problems with his microphone to give us this unique view of the track ahead of the penultimate downhill event in the series. The final World Cup, DHI 7, takes place in Hafjell, Norway, on September 14-15.

Watch the elite women's and men's finals live on July 29 on at 2.15pm (CET).
