Soriška planina is a rather new venue on the Slovenian downhill scene, but the event organizers make sure that they have one of the best events out there. The race also worked out great for our riders – Jure won the race, Žiga was third. Jure also takes the overall title.
Tanja Žakelj is of course not happy with the result she will take home from Val di Sole. She was looking towards the podium, but it just wasn’t her day and 13th place is as high as she could go today. She is 12th overall in the cross-country World Cup.
Well done boys and girls! This is what we can say after the final DH finals of the 2015 World Cup season. Ruaridh was our best rider today with a very respectable 23rd, but the team result was also great – two riders on the first sheet of final results & four men in the elite finals.
Ski-Cross World Champion Filip Flisar is taking his cycling career more serious than originally planned. From BMX bike he jumped on a mountain bike to take bronze at the Slovenian 4-cross championships, which ultimately lead to the World Champs. He was 24th today in Val di Sole.
Ruaridh and Reece joined the biggest MTB circus in the world – the traditional Crankworx festival in Whistler. They both had lots of fun riding & racing and they both have lots of great moments to share with us all. Enter the Crankworx gallery!
Jure had a great racing weekend in Czech Republic, finishing third fastest on the pre-last round of the iXS European Downhill Cup. He was second on Saturday in the qualifications and is now 4th overall.
Specific course in Windham was always up to Tanja’s likings and again he had a very good race here. She was 6th, just behind the podium. Her best World Cup result of the season is not the only positive thing from the race, race analysis showed that she was one of the fastest in half of the laps!
Ruaridh Cunningham matched his best result of the UCI MTB World Cup season – he was 20th in Lenzerheide and again today in Windham! He had a very good run on the loose and dusty course and was actually less than 4 seconds away from the podium!
