Results: Monika Hrastnik & Loris Vergier Win the 2021 European DH Championships

Aug 9, 2021
by Ed Spratt  
Just days before the World Cup kicks off again in Maribor, some of the top European riders got between the tape on a similar course to what we can expect later this week for the 2021 European Championships.

In the Junior Racing, Izabela Yankova took a huge win of over six seconds on Sophie Gutöhrle with a time that would have placed her inside the top five Elite Women. For the Junior Men, it was Jordan Williams who just pulled ahead of Davide Cappello by 0.15 seconds.

Moving onto the Elite racing, Monika Hrastnik takes home the European Champion title as she won by four seconds against Eleonora Farina in second place and Veronika Widmann in third. Loris Vergier was looking fast this weekend and backed up this speed with a win ahead of Benoit Coulanges and Danny Hart.

Check out the full results below.

 Izabela Yankova smashed again in the Junior Women Smile

 What's cool is that there was only ten seconds between the top five. Often in junior women we see massive gaps.

 Bad ass result for ol'Granddad...surprised Mr. Gas To Flat isn't on a WC team. Anyone know the deal?

Regardless, great to see him still bringing it.

 I wonder who announced dates first? It seems like a strange decision to hold a British DH series race and the European DH Champs on the same weekend.

 Wasn't it "Round 2 of the British National Downhill *Series*?"

 @mi-bike: Unless you're picking me up for not saying National and not using a capital S in series. In which case I can't apologise enough.

 Way to blur out the results image but ruin it in the title. Will the 5$ a month tier remove spoilers from the front page?

 Can't wait for the second part of the season to kick off. The DH racing for both men and women hasn't been this unpredictable in a long time.

 Surprised by the lack of depth in these elite fields... EU Champion not a coveted title(?)
