Congrats to Aaron Gwin 🇺🇸 & Pompon 🇫🇷 for their respective overall Downhill UCI World Cup win !
Here is Gwin final victory after Greg Minnaar unlucky run 😦
2017 UCI Downhill World Cup was amazing with a ranking that was decided at last round ! The podium of final Val di Sole Round #7 men race seems to be particularly promising for France 🇫🇷 for 2018 with Amaury Pierron, Loïc Bruni and Loris Vergier ranked #2, #3 and #4… and in women Pompon back quite confident and regular !
Moreover 2018 will have new stages ! A fact that was so uncommon in the last seasons : Round #1 will be in April in Lošinj, Croatia 🇭🇷 !
Troy Brosnan is back ! At least a 2nd World Cup win for the australian pilot ! The race was stuning : after Danny Hart impressive run who would have thought it could be improve twice ?!? Greg Minnaar and Troy Brosnan did. Pompon is back is business also !
After qualifying in pole position the rain salted Brosnan’s game here last season, well not this time.
The Spaniard on a Saracen, Alex Marin, had some big support so close to home here in Andorra and it spurred him onto a personal best 8th place.
Danny emmbedded cam at race day : fasten your seat belt !
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.
Leogang was also the theater of a great run for Loris Vergier finishing 2nd. This a good result after having qualifying 2nd yesterday.
His qualifying time had be estimated dubtful because he could have been pulled out by Ratboy but not al all : Loïc Bruni ‘s Specialized Gravity teammate is a great rider and realized his best UCI World Cup result ever !
Troy Brosnan finished 3rd. Danny Hart and Greg Minnaar complete the podium.
