Gwin is back ranking 1st after more than one year without top podium !
2017 will be tigh is this sure. Loris pushed hard : enough to reach 2nd before his teammate Greg Minnaar but not sufficient to win a first World Cup Round !
In women elite category nor Tahnee neither Manon reached to beat Tracey Hannah.
Best wishes to Rémi Thirion after his qualiying massive crash (collar bone).
Impressive win from Greg Minnaar : 7th win in Fort Bill for him ! He is the first downhill mtb pilot ever to reach 20 Round victories ! Overall results here. Jack Moir 2nd what a surprise ! Aaron Gwin 3rd. Marcelo Guttiérrez and Rémi Thirion complete the podium. Huge disappointment for Danny Hart after a crash in the most technical section in the woods.
In woman due to Rachel Atherton injury : Tracey Hannah won. Myriam Nicole 2nd.
Not how I imagined spending Fort William World Cup! Absolutely devastated to dislocate my left shoulder in practice this morning, off the ridiculously slow muddy sticky drop in the woods…. with the help of a guy on the side of the track we relocated it – X rays show nothing broken but I have to sit out the race today!!! It was SO EMOTIONAL watching the women racing – they all did so good in the horrible conditions in the woods- that wood section was so awful to ride! Mad respect to all the girls racing, but THANK YOU to the crowd & fans for making me feel like I still belong even tho I didn’t race! I’ll be back!! 🙈😘🤘 #fortwilliamworldcup
Unfortunately no race 😦 due to sunday massive blackout in the valley ! But training were delightful : gondolas were ok !
Next Round in Les Angles !
Not very lucky for the race day but good mood within the YT Mob !
First Alexandre Fayolle World Cup Win ! The weather played a significant role in the final ranking. Last pilots had a storm for their final runs !
Rachel still unbeatable in women category.
