Big action under the lights with no crowds during a bit of socially distanced racing here in Innsbruck. Adrien Loron took the win for the men at the pump track challenge, his second win of the day. Mathilde Bernard takes the top spot for the women.

 Black Kathi made it to second place!!! How cool is that...
These three best girlfriends - Kathi Kuypers / Vali Höll / Angie Hohenwarter - know something about going fast!!!
Be aware if you meet them together in a Bikepark - they realy shred hard!

 @Bikerdude137: That label only lives within PB platform, it doesnt actually exist. Your parents should have taught you not to speak when you dont know what you are talking about.

 Not so many shots of Loron (slalom & pumptrack) he was on fire, maybe too fast for clear pictures !

 Mathilde Bernard's winning manual would have been a great shot. Wonder how that one would have ended against Jill Kitner, MB was on another level.
