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 🇭🇷 !
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.
