Danny Hart and Floriane Pugin win at the “Mini World Cup” at Fort William for Saracen BDS rd#2.
Danny Hart loves the Fort William track and this result shows he’s going to be a real contender for the opening round of the UCI World Cup in Scotland in early June.
Great result for Matt Simmonds too and Adam Brayton.
Dirt Norco rider Dan Stanbridge said: “Blimey, it was the most stacked BDS race I’ve ever seen, every other rider was a World Cup star. Track was the brutal as ever, no new bits, one quick delve in to the woods and one new jump. Weather was a bit wild. The finals kicked off early incase the gondola had to shut. But we actually had a tail wind for the finals. Tidy.”
Ben Reid and his 650b Norco was fastest speed through the speed trap with a 79.29 kpm or 49.26 mph in old money.
Floriane Pugin took the Elite women’s win from Manon Carpenter and Emmeline Ragot. Really hoping that Manon gets her first Elite WC win this year.
Rachel Atherton sat this round out to rehab her shoulder from the Sea Otter crash.
