MTB World Cup DH1 Snowshoe
Valentina Hoell (Rockshox Tre RACE Team) won her first elite DH1 event. World Champ Nicole Myriam (Commencal) was the heavy favorite but crashed and conceded about 9 seconds. Reece Wilson (Trek) takes his first elite DH1 event as well. So both races saw first time World Cup winners.
MTB World Cup Cross Country Snowshoe
This was the only video I could find. I will add the Redbull summary video once it posts. Christopher Blevins (Trinity) ended America’s 27 year drought at MTB World Cups. Winning on his home soil in dramatic fashion. Blevins road a smart race always staying with the front group but never seeing the front until the final lap. When he did attack no one could go with him and the home crowd roared. What a race! No video yet of the women’s race but the World Champ Evie Richards (Trek) continues winning making 3 in a row.
Road World Championships Time Trial Women
Ellen van Dijk (NED) wins gold with only a 10 second margin over Marlen Reusser (SUI).
Road World Championships Time Trial Men
The crowds were incredible! In the end the Italian Filippo Gana (ITA) successfully defended his title by a mere 6 seconds. Wout Van Aert (BEL) took silver and Remco Evenepoel (BEL) bronze.
