Val di Sole – Finals

The Valley of the Sun delivered some exceptional racing, with 4 new winners across each category!

After pretty average conditions during qualifying race runs saw near perfect conditions with the track improving as the day went on.

Sun breaking through the trees to help dry the track out!
Joe Breeden from the UK qualified fastest and had the honour of coming down last in the men’s race – he finished a highly respectable 25th!
Tuhoto-Ariki Pene from New Zealand took the win in the junior men’s category with Kye A’Hern third. We were pretty pumped to see the Southern Hemisphere well represented!
Mille Johnset wins the junior women’s race – she has been knocking on the door for a while.
Marine Cabirou took her first win by a whopping 11 seconds!

After having great success here previously Laurie Greenland grabbed his first senior world cup win with a great run!

Another high placed qualifier, Forrest Riesco, backed this up in finals – 15th. It was great to see these riders who might be less well known, however highly capable, score some recognition. The ‘top riders’ were just as pumped for them as well!
Italian Davide Palazzari finished 12th, one place in front of fellow countryman Johannes Von Klebelsberg aka the Denim Destroyer!
Another strong result for Tracey Hannah, in second, who retains the overall leaders jersey.
Veronika Widmann was the highest placed Italian rider in 4th.

With back to back races we will be in Lenzerheide this weekend for round 7!
