With the domestic downhill season on the horizon and the UCI World Cup fast approaching, reigning British Downhill Series champion Marc Beaumont has been busy preparing with a pre-season testing/training trip to San Romolo, Italy.

Marc's trip took him and GT's assistant World Cup team manager Mark Maurissen to some tough mountain terrain, just outside San Remo, to get back up to speed over the off-season and ready to compete at the top of the game once again.
