|I was the best because the crowd loved me. Win the crowd and you will win your freedom - Proximo - GLADIATOR|
|So good to be riding well again, having fun on the bike! I really liked the track and I got into it straight away so things just went well for me from the off. - Neil Stewart, FMD Racing|
|Oh man, I'm just over the moon. Martin had to tell me a couple of times before it sank in that I had won the overall. Could not be more stoked! - Laurie Greenland, Trek World Racing|
|Knowing from the quali that I had the overall I think chilled me out a bit and I wasn't too worried if I crashed any more. All year I didn't push so much just in case, but this time I didn't really think about anything I was just smooth out of the gate, having more fun than I've had in a race run for a long time! Val di Sol will be interesting for sure - the gloves are off now and everyone will just be wanting that end of season win - Rachel Atherton, GT Factory Racing|
|It feels really strange because Loic had the puncture and I'm really stoked about my result. It's mixed emotion, want to cry but I can't haha! It was a cool really to be the hotseat so long, but my feet were starting to hurt sitting there! I thought this isn't my type of track at all so I thought I would just try to go fast and now I'm third somehow... I don't understand haha! - Loris Vergier, Lapierre Gravity Republic|
About the Photographers
Matthew Delorme • Age: 40 • Years Shooting: 8
Matthew DeLorme is just one of Pinkbike’s motley crew of World Cup Photographers. He currently lives out of a Ogio bag, and calls the road his home. Delorme works for Trek Bicycle, covering their MTB racing programs. He can usually be found laying in the dirt trackside, cracking jokes and saying things that make little to no sense. He enjoys capturing accessory moments and the journey every bit as much as catching the action shot.
Nathan Hughes • Age: 28 • Years Shooting: 2
Nathan Hughes was snared as mainstay Pinbike media crew for the 2013 World Cup season and has been trapped behind the lens and the keyboard ever since. In between the biggest bike events of the year Nathan can be found on client shoots, making far-off travel stories and trying to catch a moment to spin the pedals himself. A great appreciation of the wilderness, the fear of a normal life and the quest for the perfect picture will have him hooked and looking to raise the bar for years to come.
