by 3

Qualifying results are in for the first round of the UCI DH World Cup at Maribor and it looks as though the rain has been playing with the riders.

Junior Women Qualification

  1. Vali Holl: 3:32.652
  2. Anna Newkirk: +9.423
  3. Mille Johnset: +12.353
  4. Lauryne Chappaz: +28.597
  5. Leane Chardonnieras: +41.728

Vali Holl smashed qualification today at Maribor not only was she 9 seconds clear of 2nd place Junior woman Anna Newkirk, but her time would have put her in a solid 3rd place if she as racing Elite!

Junior Men:

  1. Thibaut Daprela: 3:04.941
  2. Ethan Shandro: +2.831
  3. Kye A’Hern: +4.821
  4. Emile Rilat: +8.014
  5. Yannick Baechler: +8.281

Commencal Vallnord rider Thibaut Daprela qualified 1st in the Junior Men at Maribor. We had been watching the young Freshman in practice and on social media where he looked amazingly fast. In fact his time of 3:04:941 was over 12 seconds fast than the fastest Elite Men’s rider, but we will get to that in a moment.

Elite Women

  1. Tracey Hannah: 3:30.206
  2. Rachel Atherton: +2.482
  3. Tahnee Seagrave: +4.172
  4. Nina Hoffmann: +5.932
  5. Monika Hrastnik: +7.146

Tracey Hannah won at Maribor last week during the IXS European Cup, but that was on a slightly different course. She’s still on form though with a solid 1st place ahead of Rachel Atherton and 3rd place rider Tahnee Seagrave.

Elite Men

  1. Mark Wallace: 3:17.756
  2. Aaron Gwin: 3:19.608
  3. Finn Iles: 3:19.957
  4. Laurie Greenland: 3:20.880
  5. Loris Vergier: 3:22.160

Canyon Factory team riders Mark Wallace qualified 1st in the Elite Men’s round of qualification at Maribor. The Elite Men’s times were way off the pace of the rest of the qualification times due to a change in weather. Aaron Gwin placed 2nd and Finn Iles 3rd. Current World Champion, Amaury Pierron came in 25th.

You can see the full results over on the official UCI results service (it’s super slow).

One name you won’t find there though is Luca Shaw who isn’t racing this weekend due to a broken collar bone.

    Wouldn’t Vali have been 2nd? Rachel did .682 and Vali 652. Next year it’s going to be very, very competitive in tbe women’s field!

    Didn’t it start to rain after the Juniors ran and as the elite women started?
    Anyway, its great to see more coverage of DH as the event occurs on the STW?
    Should be great tomorrow if the weather is consistent for each group of racers.

    Sorry, should not have been a question mark at the end of the second line, genuinely good to see up to date DH coverage.
