What a mind-blowing weekend it has been in Val Di Sole Italy! Myriam Nicole is the crowned DH World Champion after an incredible day of racing!
Known as one of the steepest courses on the calendar with plenty of features thrown at the riders, Val Di Sole has a special place for Myriam Nicole being her first-ever world cup win back in 2011.
In the Elite Men’s race, it was not the day for the team. Mechanicals, mistakes and crashes ended hopes of glory, but already they are looking ahead to the next races. It was the first race back for Amaury after his crash at a French Cup a few weeks earlier, despite the injuries Amaury showed great form and is hungry for the next few rounds left in the season.
Other notable highlights, Connor Fearon finished 23rd after fast race. In the junior’s race, Gracey Hemstreet took the 3rd spot on the podium!
Well done to all the riders! We’re proud to be part of your journeys!
