Photographer Victor Lucas gives us 5 photo bangers from a wet and wild Saturday in Leogang, Austria.
Jared Graves destroyed them all again, its hard to find something new to say about this guys winning streak. He had them out of the gate in every round, and even though the course and wet conditions gave us some close racing and many spills, nobody could get past him.
Annekke Beerten was pretty happy to take the win, and she goes into the series lead by just a few points ahead of Jana Horakova who will not be at many of the World Cups this year. So Anneke's only real contender is Anita Molcik.
There was plenty of action today, and a lot of it was the 'sliding down the hill on your ass' type of action. Not so good for the riders, but pretty entertaining all the same.
It was surprisingly close in the women's race, Rachel Atherton was quickest, but by only by 0.6 of a second with Ragot and Tracy close behind.
Sam Blenkinsop was on board the new Lapierre DH bike all week, and it must be working allright as he put in a blazing qualifier even with a 20 yard ball-ride through the root section just after this pic was taken.
