Apr 12, 2021
by Ed Spratt  


The European DH race season kicks off with another stacked line up of World Cup riders for the Copa Catalana at 4 Riders Bike Park. Before the Elite Men's race, a patch of rain made the track a tricky challenge for the final runs. Despite the conditions, Thibaut Daprela came out on top, with Dylan Levesque coming across the line four seconds back in 2nd place. Junior rider Pau Menoyo Busquets set the fastest time of the day with a 1:49.21, 0.7 seconds ahead of Daprela.

For the Elite Women, Marine Cabirou took the top spot with Telma Torregrosa Sancho in 2nd and EWS racer Noga Korem rounding out the top three just over 21 seconds behind the fastest time. Check out the full results below.

 I don't know who Pau Menoyo Busquets is but damn... smoked the entire field and put 0.7 into even the fastest elite.

 I think he's on that same Commencal 21 team as Angel Alonso. Going fastest ahead of a bunch of big names is super impressive.

 @betsie: 7th!
Three of the younger category riders also finished ahead of him in scratch.
As it's been noticed, it was a drier track earlier on.

 @Maxcommencemal: It's difficult to know who had dryer conditions or the same it cannot be determined by category because the start list of the finals wasn't set by category and sex, it was set by fastest times overall. So there were juniors, infantils, cadets or masters faster than some elites in wetter conditions or the other way around. It should be searched case by case.

 As exciting as it is to see Maes in third, the real story is Von Klebelsberg *just* outside the top twenty.

LONG LIVE THE DENIM DESTROYER!!
