WORLD CUP DH | XCO

Bec manages a podium in Les Gets!

Les Gets was an important date for the PMX Racing riders. In just 20 days we will enjoy the most important event in the last 4 years: the Olympic Games in Tokyo. The MS Mondraker Team went to the second round of the DH World Cup. In both cases, the heavy rain clearly conditioned both races.

As it happens in every XC World Cup races, the races started on Friday with the explosive Short Track. Important to get a good starting position for Sunday's XCO race, Bec qualified 17th, Jofre Cullell 30th and Dan McConnell 35th.

Sunday dawned with a heavy rain that didn't stop during all day. Although Bec started in 17th position, she was in the leading group from the start. She was riding in second position for part of the race and finally crossed the finish line in 5th position, which meant that she was back on the podium for the third time this season. With this final position, Bec is in 5th place overall.

On the other hand, in the men's race Jofre Cullell was 33rd, while Dan reached the finish line in 67th position.

 

MS Mondraker Team

As in the XCO races on Sunday, the DH races were clearly marked by rain. After Friday's qualifiers, where Laurie Greenland had a nasty crash, the MS Mondraker Team riders had hopes of a good race.

The first turn went to Eleonora Farina, who got a good 6th position, just a few hundredths of a second away from the podium. A pity...

In the men's race, Laly Thibault was the only one to go down in not too bad weather conditions. Things got clearly complicated for the second half of the race where the rain intensified and changed the conditions of the circuit where only the constant improvisation meant that you could stay on the bike. Laly managed to finish in the best position (24th), followed by Laurie Greenland (26th) and Brook MacDonald (39th), who, under a huge rain, made a spectacular descent.

 

 

With the Les Gets World Cup over, the Olympic Games in Tokyo is the next and most important challenge for PMX Racing Team on the 26th and 27th of July. On the other hand, the next event for the MS Mondraker Team will be in Maribor (Slovenia), in the 3rd round of the DH World Cup, on August 14th and 15th.
