Mont Saint Anne, the greatest world cup venue, the most legendary MTB race place in the world. 2014 was the 24th edition, everybody have special memories in MSA, something is different there, making the race unique. For Florent it was the 9th time and Cyrille the 8th time (they are old) Cyrille "My first time was 10 years ago on 2004 on the Honda bike with the Honda Gcross team so it’s definitely special for me to flight to MSA"
The track, we have to talk about the track, it’s one of the best of the season, one of the best of the last couple years. They made lot of modification on the top section, it was more technical and fun to ride, they add rock garden, tricky corners. The rest looked pretty similar, fast, rocky, ruff, tuff... everything to make a true DH MTB track and have a nice race.
The riders had pressure for the qualification, find the right speed to be in without flat tires or any mechanical problem. Unfortunately Toni had a rear flat tires and missed the final.
The final was intense, many fans, dry and fast track the best mix for a great race.
Morgane Charre 8th
" My run was good, some spectators were almost in my line in the main rock garden make me slide and loose speed. I feel good, I am looking forward for the next one in Windham."
Florent Payet 27th
" I made a big mistake in the first rock garden, I keep pushing hard for the rest of the race but I lost to many time, I was on the way to the top 15 once again, I am disappointed"
Cyrille Kurtz 70th
"I had fun, I enjoyed the race, but I braked to much, I couldn’t push, I have to work on my suspension setting to feel better"
Jack Iles 2nd Junior
"I am so happy to be on the podium, I had a very good run, I felt strong on the bike."
