The results are in from an exciting day of racing in Leogang. In the Elite Men's race, Loic Bruni would take his second win of 2019 and would continue the French domination of the World Cup. Greg Minnaar would put down an amazing run that was so close to taking the top spot over Bruni. Troy Brosnan would be the only other rider to get with a second of the Frenchman's winning run and would get another podium finish in 2019. Danny Hart would put down a great run but would still be nearly two seconds off the pace. Despite his still injured ankle Aaron Gwin would prove his prowess on the Austrian track with a solid fifth-place finish.
In the Elite Women, Tracey Hannah would be crowned victorious with a commanding lead over the rest of the field. Privateer Nina Hoffmann would get her best ever result with a second place finish, just over two seconds behind Hannah. Kate Weatherly would cross the line third 9.360
behind, Marine Cabirou would come close to a top three finish but a crash would secure her a fourth-place finish. Veronika Widmann would complete the Elite Women's podium over 12 seconds off the leader's pace. Rachel Atherton would crash out on her race run and would finish 15th.
The Junior racing would be back to the usual suspects with Thibaut Daprela and Vali Holl both taking wins on the revised Leogang course. Vali Holl would dominate the Junior Women with a time that would have secured third place in the Elite category. Anna Newkirk and Mille Johnset would be within a second of each other but their times would sit almost 20 seconds off Holl's unstoppable run. In the Junior Men, Kye A'Hern would sit almost two seconds behind Daprela and would have a gap of over a second back to third-placed rider Matteo Iniguez.
