This weekend’s racing had us all on the edge of our seats as we watched the world’s best riders put on a hell of a show in the Austrian Alps.
As the last rider down the hill in Leogang, Australia’s Tracey Hannah laid it all on the line pulling green at each split and taking her fourth career win at the third stop of the UCI Downhill MTB World Cup.
The Men’s race was at the top of its game with the top three riders all within the same second, but the French domination continued. Specialized speedster, Loïc Bruni hit the course with energy and accuracy, flying into the finish line with the fastest time of 3m 16.132s.
Take a peek into Tracey Hannah and team Polygon UR’s preparation in this video.
They started their week in Leogang with the concept of making a video talking about the goals vs reality of each rider, asking them the same questions every morning: What is your goal for the day. At night we did let them evaluate if their goals were reached and what happened.
They wanted to show something a bit more real and an insight into the ups and downs of racing. Needless to say, goals were met
