DH Highlights – Les Gets World Cup 2021

by 1

We said it before, but we’ll say it again. Les Gets DH World Cup brought it. It was such an intense race and given the conditions, it was hard to predict who might take the top spot. What’s even more incredible is the fact the riders that did take the win in both the men and women’s category were both suffering from injury. There were unfortunately crashes and injuries during the duration with some questioning the safety of certain features.

Here are the winning runs, highlights and standings as we head into the next round of the world cup in Maribor in August. Enjoy these DH Highlights from Les Gets.

Winning Runs

VIVE LA FRANCE! Damp, sketchy and rowdy – the return of French downhill was a breath of fresh air (and chainsaw fumes) for the world of mountain biking. Watch as Tahnee Seagrave and Thibault Daprella win take the win on French soil for one of the wildest downhill world cups we’ve seen in a while!
