This year we were lucky enough to be on the ground at the Lourdes DH World Cup. Not only were we there to hand-deliver brand new DHaRCO race kits for the Commencal / Muc-Off Team, but we also witnessed the outstanding performance from all athletes on the track.

The Elite Women's race was full of wild moments, and has seen some outstanding bike riding. Myriam Nicole started her race day with a significant crash, but that didn't stop her from still taking second place!

But it doesn't get wilder than the Elite Men's race, with many spectacular runs and creative lines. Amaury Pierron took first place with a very clean run. He won by almost a second (0.847) faster than Finn Iles who came in second.
