World DH 2022
Get ready for another exciting season! Starting this weekend.
Trofeo Alfredo Binda
No rainbow curse for the World Champ Elisa Balsamo (Trek) with her second win of 2022. She and her team put on sprint master class. They controlled the late break then leadout with about 100 meters she finally saw the wind and easily out kicked everyone else. Notable: American Coryn Labecki with her new team Jumbo-Visma made the select group finishing 6th.
It was all eyes on “win everything” Tadej Pogacar (UAE). And sure enough UAE took control ahead of the Poggio to set up their leader. He did not disappoint. I counted at least 4 searing attacks by the 23 year old Tour champ. But it was not steep enough as Wout Van Eart (Jumbo-Visma) and Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) were quick to respond. While the bigs were cancelling each other out Matej Mohoric (Bahrain) went into attack mode on the descent. He took huge risks at one point he hopped out of a gutter then over cooked a corner and just missed the barriers. No one even dared to follow and there were some great descenders in the group behind. Mohoric took the biggest win of his career. Later it was revealed he used a dropper post and had trained starting in the winter for the descent. That was a gripping 15 minutes of bike racing! Is this no longer the sprinters Monument?
