We can’t think of enough superlatives to describe that race! The tension was near unbearable but luckily for us the riders can handle it.
Canadian Chainsaw Massacre Steve Smith took the World Cup finals win and with it the overall title. Gee Atherton didn’t exactly look slow but only managed to put in time worthy of 4th place. 2nd place qualifier Mick Hannah came in 3rd with the top 5 being finished off by Josh Bryceland.
In the Women’s Rachel Atherton came 2nd behind Emmeline Ragot, enough to secure the overall title she was 4.817s up on fellow Brit Manon Carpenter in 3rd. Jill Kintner put in a blinder and landed 4th spot with the top 5 finished off by Myriam Nicole.
Junior Men was solid for the Brits after the 1,2 in Hafjell last weekend. Mike Jones in 3rd behind Loris Vergier (2nd) and Noel Niederberger who took the win. Jure Zabjek came in 4th and Innes Graham took his second top 5 result in as many weeks with a 5th place.
