Schladming has one of the most demanding tracks in the iXS season, but it’s also one of the most popular – 400 riders from 30 different nations entered the race. The fastest riders of the weekend were Emmeline Ragot and Danny Hart, but our guys also did very well!
Ruaridh Cunningham finished in 4th in the super final and got him self a place on the podium. Žiga Pandur was also very solid, finishing in 14th. Reece Wilson was also on the race, but he had a mechanical in the qualifications and decided not to race in the small finals.
Ruaridh Cunningham, 4th place: "I'm happy with 4th place and getting closer to where I want to be. I've had a lot of fun riding this week and was happy to put down a fast run and be up there with the top guys come race day, especially on such a demanding course."
Žiga Pandur, 14th place: “Racing on infamous Schladming track newer disappoints. With everyday rain the track got rough and with perfect grip, so the final runs were really fast for these kind of conditions. With "mini world cup" attendance I'm happy with 14th place in super finals.”
