After more than one month of absence, the iXS European Downhill Cup finally returned with another race. The second but last race of the season invited 300 riders from 25 different countries to Spicak (Czech Republic). At the end Johannes Fischbach and Veronika Widmann were the fastest.

Johannes Fischbach (GER - Ghost RRP) has taken the win in Spicak and with it the leaders jersey into the final round of the 2015 iXS European Downhill Cup series.
Jasper Jauch (GER - Liteville) took second spot today, down almost 2.5 seconds on Fischbach.
6.5 seconds away NS Bikes rider Slawomir Lukasik (POL) missed the podium this weekend but it was enough to put him into the second place of the overall ranking.
Italian Champion Veronika Widmann was fastest of the Elite Women's field, with Eleonora Farina only one second back. Sandra Rübesam (GER - Rose Factory Team) came on third. There's then a little gap between these three riders and the rest of the field. Looks like the Spicak track is proving to be quite a challenge for riders to get down cleanly on.
