Speaking after the race, Bruni said, "New country, new trails, new people and I loved everything. The people are all super-friendly, they all welcomed me, congratulated me for the season and becoming World Champ and I really felt good vibes all weekend. At the race I was a bit scared. I didn’t know if they were going to be wild or aggressive, I laid off especially at the start so Gee and Colin just went faster than me, so I was a bit stuck in traffic. People were just racing big time, it was good fun and I didn’t crash. I didn’t see many people just killing themselves, it was a really good day and really good fun on the hill."
