Viva La Francais - Crankworx DH
Crankworx Les Gets: Downhill Finals
The resurgence of French downhill was in full swing in Crankworx Les Gets. It was a monster of a track, which was made even harder with the muddy, wet and claggy conditions. The French riders ruled the race, four in the top ten - Remi Thirion in first with lieutenants Estaque, Pons and Payet behind him. Local lady Morgane Charre took the win in the elite Women's by over 25 seconds - a huge win.
Aussie Jack Moir is finally getting to where he wants to be after a few years marred by injuries, it was good to see him up there. The DOG was on it too! Brendan Fairclough right up there 2nd place for him, he can only be looking forwards to Lenzerheide in a few weeks now, and another good day for British riders with Kerr and Williamson hammering well. Fabien Barel was looking quick all week, but unfortunately he went off course in his race run and was disqualified, but he would've finished in 4th if it wasn't for that.
