Elite Final Results & Overall Standings from the Leogang DH World Cup 2024

Jun 9, 2024
by Ed Spratt  
The results are in from the third stop of the 2024 DH World Cup as the lower woods once again provided a tough challenge for riders.

Vali Höll provides a masterclass in Leogang as she backs up her win here last year with another standout performance. Höll crosses the line at her home race with a massive winning margin of 7.1 seconds as she is unfazed by the tricky conditions. Anna Newkirk put together a great run securing second place ahead of Myriam Nicole's return to the podium in third place.

Loic Bruni carries on his incredible form in 2024 as he is yet to finish outside the top two in finals. In a battle against his teammate Finn Iles, Loic Bruni comes out on top in Leogang as he pulled back over 2.6 seconds through the final three sectors on his way to a second World Cup victory this season. Despite a thumb injury and only seven runs on the course this week, Finn Iles takes home second place ahead of a charging Lachlan Stevens-Mcnab.

Check out the results below.

 dare i say it, coverage and commentary seems good
  • 21 2
 Actually, as long as there's a long time pro in the booth, it's pretty good. Kind of inverse to red bull days when Rob was the draft horse and side kicks were so so.
  • 25 5
 @xice: Ah but Rob is a long time pro!
  • 37 1
 Watching excellent MTB downhill coverage from Juniors' to Elite categories for 3 hours now, with excellent commentary and great broadcasting....it took a while, but now it's really fun to watch. Happy customer here Smile

 Those interviews mid-race can just do one. Adds nothing, subtracts drama, pointless drek.
  • 30 3
 Except that we see zero of the top 2 min of a less than 4 min course. Disappointed they aren't showing the tree stump section at all.
  • 7 4
 Soon as the men started they’ve decided to stop showing the whole top section for some reason? Go figure
  • 19 3
 @wilsonians: currently there are only 2 min gaps between the riders so its impossible to show the full run yet.

The top 10 have 4min gaps to show most of their run.
  • 5 3
 @dhftw1231: 1st rider gets their full run shown as they are the only rider on course.
  • 18 5
 @casey79: then the gaps should be changed. They were perfectly happy to stream semis and finals last year. They’e now stopped streaming semis but can’t add 20mins to a broadcast so we can see full runs? That we pay for? Come on
  • 62 3
 Josh is much better than Ric but he needs to stop talking for long enough to let Aaron do his thing (we all want to hear what Aaron says).
Hopefully they will replace the finish interviewer with Ric where he is much better suited (the person they've got is embarassingly awful)
  • 21 24
 Good old PB punters with the UCI World Cup of commentary, commentary.

Do any of you watch or even like the bike racing part?
  • 6 6
 Josh also needs to work on anticipating the split times, and providing the info when it comes in. Now it was often Gwin announcing the times.
  • 6 2
 @casey79: This is not difficult to understand, yet so many people just don't get it. You can disagree with what sections they decide to focus on, but bitching about the how much of the run is shown doesn't make sense.

 Hate the mid-run interviews. Too few cameras or shots of important sectors. Can't stand the non-DH commenters. My 'free' Max/BR feed hung frequently on both audio and video and except for Rachel and Aaron would have been better with the sound off.
  • 18 4
 generally good coverage. Love having pros in the booth. dont like thew mid run interview dont like the far away drone shots, just stop it. dont like the instant replay while the run is still happening. Christ, I wanna watch the race!
  • 12 1
 They should alternate with Eddie and Gwinn one world cup and Jack and Aaron the next. Tahnee was awesome in the booth for hardline. Love Rachel but waaay to much chatter in the booth. Tracy Mosely would be ideal

 @wilsonians: need to wait for top 20 to get longer start gaps, yep it’s annoying
  • 14 1
 @steezysam: He just needs to stop trying to fill every second. In one of Warners interviews he talks about going to RedBull to be taught how to commentate and he said the hardest thing is just knowing when to be quiet.
A few times Josh was talking word soup to fill a gap or he'd just repeat what Aaron had literally just said.
I'm sure he'll see this and take on board all of our constructive criticism :o)
  • 9 1
 I’m not trying to be a jerk or take anything from Rachel‘s incredible achievements in downhill mountain biking but I like Seagraves a lot better on the mic. Just my opinion. I felt like they were all talking at once sometimes.
  • 5 5
 @watchmen: that’s hilarious seeing as Rob Warner never stops talking.
  • 10 1
 To be fair i thought Josh was really good and i imagine he'll only get better. A likeable color commentator together with the wealth of knowledge and brevity that is AG.
  • 6 3
 Aaron Gwin gives great insight. But sometimes his voice gets really monotone and he just drones on and on. Give the other dude a bit more opportunity to inject some hype.
  • 4 1
 @watchmen: I felt like Aaron never stopped talking honestly. Interesting how different our perspectives can be!

 @rallyimprezive: The fact that many commentator critics have given Ric and Josh grief for interrupting him seems to indicated that he is not, in fact, brief either

 @Sscottt: Anna and Mille Johnset juniors in 2018/19 with Vali Höll, so were a bit overshadowed then, though they both won races and beat Vali at the time. I think the three of them were on every junior podium in 2019.
Anna's been coming along slowly but strongly as a senior, as we see here. Great result.
  • 15 0
 @The-Foiling-Optimist: I've been saying for a while Anna's career is a bit like Andreas Kolb's early days where he gradually moved up the results to be a top level racer.

Anna's great in real life too, she always helps out at our local build days
  • 4 0
 @Sscottt:
Anna has been there, in and around the top 10, for a few years.

But along with several US riders in DH and XC, she seems to have really stepped it up this year.

 If they make it harder for teams that aren’t rich to compete you won’t see this in the future. I hope people get this. What does it cost to have a team at a race vs what do you get as a win?

 This is the first dh race I’ve watched live an about a year. It’s an improvement but those mid race run interviews are driving me mad. And can someone please tell Josh Carlson to stop interrupting Gwin and chatting a load or irrelevant gibberish
  • 1 0
 On Max (and at least on the Eurosport website and previously GCN, I assume also on the Discovery+ app) there are two different streams, one with the "hosting" (Kate Mason + guests) and the mid race interviews, the other without, with some rider interviews played pre race. I much prefer the latter, but unfortunately now watching my first race through Max after it's launch here, for some reason I couldn't get the English commentary to work on it when Casting it onto my non-smart TV. I really hope it was just some weird glitch, I really haven't missed the additional chats much.
  • 14 12
 Carlson was almost as annoying today as Rob Warner always is. Warner drove me crazy during Hardline talking gibberish over half the stuff Tahnee had to say.
  • 14 2
 @FuzzyL: I know this is an unpopular opinion, but I agree. I’m not taking anything away from his contribution to the sport, but hearing him talk over people constantly gets old.

 Best race coverage since the switch from Redbull. Gwin is made to be a pundit and commentator! And Josh is an actually likable, funny guy! I hope this can be a permanent thing. Rick McLaughlin just sucks the life out of the broadcast.

 Josh brought the energy the broadcast needed.
He needs to work on his technique as others have pointed out (e.g. watch for the splits, don't repeat what AG is saying), but he's definitely got way more potential than Ric.

 To all the people here saying the live coverage was great, did we watch the same thing?

Half a minute of each run was shot from the ISS, we didn't get to watch the bikeparky turns and the split line transfer. Not even once.

Up there the track even twisted on itself, giving the perfect oportunity to mount a crane and see the riders twice as long from the same spot.

The instant replays when riders where holding on for dear life? Come on, just wait till they cross the line and skip the reactions from team managers and the hot seat going "Oooh!"

Josh did a great job IMO, he can do the rest of the year, or Ric can come back, as long as they let Rachel or Gwinn their space. Tahnee is the future also as I see it

 To be fair, it was better than it’s been — though your points still stand and I totally agree with you.

Main gripe right now: if you’re going to have semis, show some ducking highlights before the finals. So we can catch up on form, injuries, etc. If you’re feeling particularly generous, UCI, go the whole hog and do the same for quali. Coming into finals without a clue how anyone is performing is rubbish.

“Generous UCI”, lol

 Electronic suspension is the future for DH, weather we like it or not. Especially when there is "motorways". No it won't win a race, but in the hands of one of the best riders in the world it's leathal.
  • 13 5
 You ask me, I’d say let’s simply have less motorways…
  • 16 0
 Or simply say you can't have electronic suspension? For me that's the easy answer, remove it from the equation to level the playing field
  • 9 4
 @marshallthewolf: But why? It’s a technical sport, always has been, let the teams innovate.

It’s not like Bruni is winning because he has electronic suspension, he’s winning because he is the best rider.

However, from what I understand it’s not much more a glorified lockout at this stage. Just remove any parts from a downhill track where a “lockout” could be useful, in my humble opinion those shouldn’t be there in the first place.
  • 3 1
 @FuzzyL: because as the tech progresses the riders will be able to make use of them everywhere on track. if a track has a fast and rough top and a muddy slow bottom section, it would be an advantage to adjust the suspension settings on-the-fly.
  • 7 2
 @ghci7: while I understand the point you’re making, if you take away Loic’s buttons, he’s still going to ride like Loic. Valli having flight attendant isn’t the reason she won by 7 seconds.

 Unless this also means getting rid of the e-edr. If that’s the case, sign me up.

 @grnmachine02: I agree, similar to motogp with adaptive geometry. I just don't think it will make the actual racing more interesting, it will just make it harder for privateers to compete.
  • 2 0
 @FuzzyL: keep the motorway, you also need skill to ride it fast. I disagree with DH being just rough shute. The best riders should have rounded skills, that means also pumping, keeping speed, jumps, cornering etc.

 sooo, Vali would've been top 30 in the men...that is insane. awesome race, awesome track, good commentating. still, the hype Rob brought or brings to a racerun is something I miss. Gwin is super but sounds monotone at some points.

 If they're going to use all the red bull athletes throughout the broadcast, they should just use another guest commentator.....Rob

 By far the best coverage this year!

 I like hearing Gwin commentate. He's on point and his insight is really cool. I get that Josh is supposed to talk, but yeah, it'd be nice for us to get to listen to Aaron's full sentence without having him get cut off pretty much evert time.

 Yes FINN!!! He DNF'd the semi, so I thought he was gonna miss the final, but he was protected. So how exactly does protection work? Was he protected because of his current standing? or his standing from last year?
  • 5 0
 Current standing. Top 3 from last year are protected all year. 4 through 10 change based on current overall.

 I used Eurosport for a while this spring before Max launched here. Yeah the website isn't the best, however, still better than the Max website if you want to find anything not using the search field (which luckily does work). Then again HBO has always had the worst display options of the streaming services, with minimal categories and menus to narrow the selection down with.. I really hoped they would've fixed that too now with the Discovery+ merge/ Max launch, but no.

 Eurosport 2 had the race covered live in TV for the second time. I really hope they will continue with this. Watching on TV with possibility of replay is great.

 Massive well done to the Specialized boys. Great work. I wonder if people are going to question those buttons on the bars on this track. Being you needed a firm bike at the top and a soft bike at the bottom.

 It's a shame that a team (and a rider) pay travel costs to be able to participate in the World Cup only to get one step away from the final and not be able to participate in it. No one will have seen your sponsor and next year that team will suffer an economic loss.

 This needs to get traction. I feel bicycle racing should be a mechanical, mental and physical exercise. Electronic Lockouts effectively remove the compromise everyone needs to make between traction and efficiency in bine setup. Thats wack

 It would be too hard to ban line spotters. But maybe at least ban ‘in practice timing sections’. I don’t understand how specialised are allowed to put up those timing sticks. If I was another rider and saw them to study a line, I’d kick them over.

 The innovation in suspension design is honestly so sick. There is no single damping tune that will ever work for everything. Look to enduro and you see guys like Richie (also fastest in the world) constantly changing compression settings between stages.

Might not be for everyone, but man am I stoked for this to trickle down more - lower cost, higher performance.

Having this adjustment on the fly, and not having to think about it would be so awesome. You'd be crazy to not want the most performance out of your bike when pushing the sport at the highest level, heck even at my washed-up level I'd take itSmile
