World Cup #4 in Leogang: Back to work!

Another very exciting round of the mountain bike world cup took place in the bikepark of Leogang in Austria.

With a 21st place for Brendan Fairclough, a 48th for Patrick Thome, a 49th for Noel Niederberger and a 10th for Emilie Siegenthaler, Gstaad-Scott had not much to do with the decisions on the podium this time.

A brutally fast and hard packed race track, tail wind in the pedalling section, big jumps, sunny weather and lots of spectators was the right set up for a spectacular race with yet a new winner in the 4th race.
The track didn’t seem to suit our riders well though, as they didn’t feel comfortable on it right from the start, even though our bike was working perfectly on it.

The team is going back to work immediately and use the next six weeks to change things up for the next world cup in Mont Sainte Anne, Canada. We’re going to do so straight away, as the team is moving on to Schladming today, to train on the former world cup track and to race at the IXS European Downhill Cup next weekend.
