Pinkbike Primer - Everything You Need to Know Ahead of the 2019 Mont-Sainte-Anne DH World Champs

Aug 28, 2019
by Sarah Moore  



It's not the final race of the year and it may not affect the overall World Cup standings, but for downhill racers who never get the chance to represent their countries at the Olympics, the race for the rainbow stripes is the most prestigious race of the year and a truly patriotic affair. Loic Bruni, Rachel Atherton, Kade Edwards, and Valentina Höll have had the privilege of wearing the rainbow stripes for the past year, but with Rachel injured and Kade moving up to Elites, it will be a different foursome wearing the stripes next season.

A historic venue, the World Championships are in Mont-Sainte-Anne for the third time in 2019, after having been here in both 1998 and 2010. In 1998, Nicolas Vouilloz and Anne-Caroline Chausson were in their prime and took the wins for France.

In the Elite men's race in 2010, it was Sam Hill who stood on the top of the podium, with Steve Smith in second and Greg Minnaar in third. As for the Junior Men, Troy Brosnan took the rainbow stripes with Neko Mulally and Lewis Buchanan behind him. In the Elite Women's race, Tracy Moseley secured the rainbow jersey, with Sabrina Jonnier and Emmeline Ragot rounding out the podium. In the Junior Women's race, it was Canadian Lauren Rosser who took the win on home soil, with Fanny Lombard and Julie Berteaux in second and third.

Let's take a look at who has won this prestigious event in the past, what venues have played host, the course the rainbow stripes will be won on this year, what the weather conditions look like, and who we think the favourites are to take the rainbow stripes in 2019.


The track




The Mont-Sainte-Anne DH course is long and brutal with incredibly high-speed sections.





What Happened Here Last Year


After a wet qualifier, the track had managed to dry out nicely by the time finals came around, but the rain had made the ruts and holes on course huge. Riding on the edge, Rachel Atherton was already 12 seconds up on Hannah's time by Split 2, and an aggressive and faultless run saw her lead extend as she made her way down the hill. With massive margins on her split times, Atherton put in a blistering run that saw her cross the finish line with 20-second second advantage. Tahnee Seagrave was unable to improve on it and had to settle for second.

Amaury Pierron went into the race knowing that he could wrap up the World Cup overall title after a good qualifying performance on the Friday. However, the talk up at the start area was whether the French rider would elect to race at all after suffering a heavy crash in the last practice session, just hours before finals. Champion in waiting Pierron showed strong mental and physical toughness by deciding to go for his run. He had to finish ahead of Vergier to take the World Cup overall with a race to spare. The Frenchman carried good speed in his run, switching between being ahead and then behind Vergier's time at the splits. One final effort in the finish area saw him just better Vergier's time to go into second, and with that, he was crowned the 2018 World Cup

There was still the little matter of the race result to decide before Pierron could begin his celebrations, though. Loïc Bruni and then Danny Hart were still left to go. Defending world champion Bruni had the measure of Brosnan's time on his way down, and was up on the Australian's stellar time by 1.192 seconds by the third split. Bruni was super smooth and though he lost a little time towards the end of the run, he crossed the finish line with the new fastest time champion. Hart wasn’t able to make an impression on Bruni's time, but did go into third, as Bruni and Pierron were left to celebrate an incredible day for the French at the finish.

Last round recap




Marine Cabirou managed to snag her second-ever World Cup win in Lenzerheide just ahead of title rival Tracey Hannah after they played a game of split ping pong over the length of the track, Caibrou eventually eeking out a margin of just under 3 tenths. There was then a gap of 7 seconds before the riders came in thick and fast with home hero Emilie Siegenthaler coming in third ahead of Kiwi Kate Weatherly and another Swiss rider in Camille Balanche who got her second podium in as many races. In behind them came Eleonora Farina, Monika Hrastnik, Raphaela Richter, Veronika Widmann, and Sian A'Hern. Nina Hoffmann and Mariana Salazar both went down in the slippery conditions when on podium pace.

The juniors may well have got the worst of the conditions which makes Vali Höll's fastest time of the day even more impressive. What can we say about Vali that hasn't been said already? It wasn't Anna Newkirk following her home in second this time, she was third as Nastasia Gimenez took her first podium finish of the year in second. Suamish local Seth Sherlock laid down a heater in a tightly-contested Junior Men where he pipped Switzerland's Janosch Klaus who chose a good race to take his first podium at, last weekend's winner Tuhoto-Ariki Pene rounded off the podium. It was a day to forget for Thibaut Daprela who flatted when down at the first few spits.

With the rain halting the track then proceeded to dry throughout the men's finals with the track conditions improving rider to rider. Last man down Danny Hart just couldn't match his qualifying prowess and faded to 5th, opening the door for Amaury Pierron to take his third win of the season. He and Bruni have now taken three apiece with Greenland the only other rider to get in on the number 1 action this season. Greg Minnaar came closest to Pierron just under a second back with overall leader Loic Bruni coming home 3rd, Troy Brosnan and Danny Hart rounded out the podium. Laurie Greenland, Dean Lucas, Loris Vergier, Reece Wilson, and Florent Payet completed the top ten. Kudos to Lucas, Wilson, and Payet who all took their best result of the season so far.

How to watch

Brosnan hucking big on the final double to score that podium he so narrowly missed here in 2017.

Pinkbike will be providing you with the best daily coverage from our team of photographers in Mont-Sainte-Anne this week. Tune in to Pinkbike to catch photo epics, results, news and tech.

While Red Bull TV is the official broadcaster for the Mercedes-Benz UCI MTB World Cup, they aren't the only official global broadcaster for the World Championships. The UCI packages the DH and XC World Championships alongside all of the other cycling disciplines they own and so it's a separate agreement that needs to be made.

In many instances, the broadcast licensing agreements allow Red Bull to broadcast the World Championship XC and DH races, and in many places, you will be able to watch the World Championships as you would during any World Cup race weekend. Globally, however, it's a bit of patchwork as some countries are not included.

See how to watch the Elite races in your country.

Pinkbike Predictions

"Martin Maes had a streak of Enduro World Series wins earlier this year before being suspended and a second-place last year means that he knows how to deal with the pressure of World Championships. We think that his fourth place at the last EWS in Northstar doesn't mean he's not in racing form. It means he's been spending more time on his downhill bike preparing for Worlds. With his EWS overall dreams in shambles, he's the one to watch on Sunday as he'll aim to turn his season around. While Loic Bruni has a good track record of winning World Championships with Elite titles in 2015, 2017 and 2018, he's never won the World Cup overall. We think his desire to take the overall will prevent him from winning World Championships for a third time in a row. As for the bronze medal, Greg Minnaar has been in good form finished third here in Mont-Sainte-Anne at World Championships the last time around.

As for the women, with Rachel Atherton out and Miriam Nicole not hitting the final jumps in the Canadian Open DH at Crankworx Whistler, neither of them will be factors. Marine Cabirou is coming off of two World Cup wins, and although we may be betting again Loic Bruni, it's hard to bet against two French with their track record at World Championships. Tracey Hannah has been having a great season but we think she will have to settle for second once again, while Tahnee Seagrave comes back from injury with a safe run that's good enough for third.


ELITE MEN
1 // Martin MAES
2 // Loic BRUNI
3 // Greg MINNAAR
ELITE WOMEN
1 // Marine CABIROU
2 // Tracey HANNAH
3 // Tahnee SEAGRAVE

 I'll go with Marine, but on the men's side - Troy will go for broke - Amaury and Loic are too close for the overall with one WC race left to chance a possible injury. Which is why Champs should be at the end of the WC season! So many guys I'd love to see take it.

 Troy I hope too and yes he's amped.

 Man you're right. I have just a doubt on Amaury. I don't see him as a "cautious" rider when it comes to racing Smile Look how savage he has been on the last few races. That being said, the logic would suggest him being a little bit more cautious than average (at his level of course). We'll see but damn it will be exciting to watch!!!

 @Aksel31: Amaury already has a World Cup series. World Champs is a big thing, especially if you've never won it. Ask Gwin. Would love to see Aaron at 100% too. His bat-out-of-hell runs have been missed. Troy deservedly hotly tipped though.

Myriam was well up in the Canadian open before slamming the brakes on and not jumping the final 2 jumps (saving herself for worlds), Tahnee is about 3% faster than Tracey when fit and further ahead of Marine CABIROU.

Mens will be Loic as he has to match is dad from last week v Finn and Danny (previous winners at MSA), with Amaury PIERRON in the mix also as he would love the rainbow stripes and doesnt have a back off button.

 Curious about qualifying on Friday. In the past everyone at the World's had already qualified and they were seeded by UCI ranking. The closest thing to qualifying was timed practice. Is it a seeding run? Or have they changed the format?

 I may have missed it in a previous post, but can someone tell me how the start list is determined? Is it by UCI points? i.e. riders with most points drop in last?
  • 1 0
 I believe it's by UCI rankings (UCI points in last 12 months, not current WC rankings), also as we get no qualification at the worlds (just timed training) the finals start list will be determined by this.

 @GrandMasterOrge: Thanks! Do you know the significance of the "downhill qualification" that is being referenced in the above schedule taking place on Friday?
  • 1 0
 @azogas413: Now I'm happy for someone to correct me if I'm wrong but I believe this is more like timed training, and doesn't affect who qualifies or the start order? All entrants should be racing in the final as far as I'm aware.
  • 2 0
 @GrandMasterOrge: Cut and paste from the competition guide:

"DHI Men Elite, DHI Women Elite
For the qualifying round and the final:
1. As per the last published UCI DHI individual ranking. The best rider starting last.
2. Unclassified riders: by nations in rotation (*).

DHI Men Juniors, DHI Women Juniors
For the qualifying round and the final:
1. As per the last published UCI DHI individual ranking. The best rider starting last.
2. Unclassified riders: by nations in rotation (*).

For all DHI events (Men Elite, Women Elite, Men Juniors and Women Juniors), riders are
required to ride in the qualifying round. The number of riders qualifying for the final are as
follows:
- Men Elite: top 80 riders in the qualifying round
- Women Elite: top 40 riders in the qualifying round
- Men Juniors: top 60 riders in the qualifying round
- Women Juniors: top 15 riders in the qualifying round

For the final in the Men Elite and Women Elite, the “protected riders” are: Riders ranked in
the top 10 Women Elite and the top 20 Men Elite of the final world cup standings of the
current season. In case the UCI mountain bike world cup final is held after the UCI mountain
bike world championships, riders ranked in the top 10 Women Elite and the 20 Men Elite of
the latest world cup standings of the current season.

Even “protected riders” must start in the qualifying round in order to be entitled to ride the
final."

 As much as I'd love to see Maes win it all... beating Bruni is going to be very very hard. Dude's got 2 in a row and he's looking better this year than ever before.

 I'm not sure if he's in the correct head space coming into MSA. He's been pretty vocal in interviews about trying to get into the right frame of mind and thinking about priorities: overall vs a potential 4th WC.

All I can find is this link on iplayer which as yet has no air date or time.
