Andorra World Cup: Finals and Peaty’s Send Off

Andorra World Cup: Finals and Peaty’s Send Off

Sheffield Steel! Andorra marked Steve Peat’s last World Cup race. In true classic Peaty fashion, he crossed the line with arms raised above his head and spent the time after his finish socializing and reminiscing. It was an emotional post-race celebration of his historic and storied career, with a surprise slideshow tribute unveiled on the big screen. While he may be stepping away from racing, his legacy will remain, and he’ll no doubt be up to some fun antics in […]

Andorra World Cup Qualifying Report.

Andorra World Cup Qualifying Report.

The morning greeted us with immaculate skies and a warm breeze. The stillness in the pits, even as practice got underway showed that some of that “cruisey” end of season vibe had been done away with, and it was business as usual; racing is fun and all, but sometimes it is also meant to be a bit stressful. Many riders have a lot to play for, and this behemoth of the Pyrenees is going to hake the up overall for […]

Andorra World Cup Timed Training

Andorra World Cup Timed Training

Above: Irishman Jacob Dickson is back. While chatting trackside today, Jacob informed me that his collarbone isn’t actually fully healed, as it’s just being weitd. But, he said he’s here to just have fun and get back to racing. The loose and slightly unpredictable conditions here in Vallnord have made for tricky riding on the first day of practice and timed training. The athletes were struggling to read the terrain, and a fair few crashes happened throughout the day; there […]

Andorra Day 1: Pit Bits and Chit Chat.

The start of the season in Lourdes, France seems like just yesterday. The 2016 season has flown by, with all sorts of wild action along the way. With the final round of the World Cup here in Andorra officially underway with Track Walk going down today, the vibe around the pits was particularly relaxed and jovial. With most riders’ goals and achievements already getting checked off earlier in the season, most of the top riders are now looking ahead to […]

MSA Day 4: Finals

MSA Day 4: Finals

The rain fell, the thunder boomed, but the track dried and the doom-sayers were quelled. The ensuing hours of racing produced some intense riding and impressive results. Gaetan Vige made good on his stellar Qualifying splits and pulling out the win in Junior men, just .031 over Finn Iles. Women’s saw a huge winning margin of 11+ seconds by Rachel Atherton, firmly reminding everyone why she’s now won 12 races in a row. In Men, series leader Aaron Gwin did […]

MSA Day 3: Qualifying

MSA Day 3: Qualifying

A light rain in the morning had riders and media alike sending a flurry of texts back and forth, conferring about the day and wondering how it might play out. However, initial suspense about a wet track was immediately alleviated once on the hill, as the dust was out and clogging eyes, noses, and camera gear by 9:30. This meant that speeds were fully-tapped first thing in the morning and riders who were perhaps a little sleepy, were wide awake […]

MSA Day 2: Practice

MSA Day 2: Practice

Mont Sainte Anne is one of the most storied tracks on the World Cup circuit. It has a reputation for producing some of the hardest slams; Gee Atherton ’14, Mitch Delfs ’10; and a few of the most triumphant moments in the sport: Sam Hill and Tracey Moseley winning Gold at the 2010 World Championships, Sam returning from injury, and Tracey winning the rainbow stripes for the first time. The long 4+ minute track is brutal on the body and […]

Lenzerheide World Cup, Day 4:  Finals.

Lenzerheide World Cup, Day 4: Finals.

Red. Red. Red. Red…Green. Chaos. Danny Hart put down a memorable performance to take his first World Cup win. Aaron Gwin’s run looked unbeatable, but a bobble in one of the final corners at the bottom left his time vulnerable to anyone who was within two seconds of him at the last split. Hart was in touch by only .4 seconds, but it there was not much room left on track to find the difference – but he did, a […]
