    Not the most elevation gain on this track, but super technical terrain that makes it very physical. The technical nature of the track means that optimum bike setup is important.

    Rissveds leading throughout the start lap so far. The amount of single track sections in the track are making overtaking hard and causing track blockages. That means the racers in the front are getting further away quicker than they otherwise would.

    Lecomte leading into the last lap. Rissveds pushing hard to catch up with an 8 second gap, and Keller is only 2 seconds behind Rissveds, both of them trying to catch Loana on this last lap.

    Will N1no become the GOAT in front of his home (he lives there) crowd?

    Not great by the host broadcaster to miss the decisive attack from Lecomte live. And Rob & Bart in RB hq Salzburg rather from the venue….

    So… what happened in the woods? From Pinkbike it sounds like Flukiger went for a line and took Nino out. Leaving the door open for Braidot and Hatherly. Good race, pleased for Braidot, disappointed for Nino.

    There will be some footage somewhere on a phone.
    Anyway, I am disappointed for the race, not for Nino. It was an excellent race and great to see Braidot and Hatherly sprint it out. But the afters from Nino are disappointing. Leave it on the track and set a good example for upcoming budding racers. If this was Le Tour, he’d be out.

    Edit – he has a penalty fine.

    What a race, the pace was relentless. Braidot was brilliant – thats how you pickup wins in events like this, by being in the right place at the right time for that time when the expected leaders/winners mess up. Great to watch.

    Shame the red mist got to them both a bit by the sounds of it HOWEVER – look what they are doing, the effort going in, the intensity! Its a great sport to watch nowadays.

    Does seem poor form from Nino – racing incident it would seem that is until I see otherwise…

    It was a great weekend of racing with the DH as well.

    More on the Shurter / Fluckinger incident here:

    What happened between Schurter and Flueckiger in Lenzerheide?

    It reads as Fluckinger tried a pass when it wasn’t really on…
