Team Videos: Leogang World Cup DH 2018
Polygon UR The team is steadily building on their performances from last week in Leogang and they are all gaining in pace. Tracey managed to get a beautiful 3rd place this weekend and we can't wait to see Mick and Fayolle battle it out in between them at the next race as they were only separated by 0.1second today in 34th and 35th place! We'll all be in Crankworx Innsbruck next week so please come by to our truck and say hi!

YT Mob Following his over the bars crash due to a loose rock on course in Fort William last week, Aaron Gwin has been nursing a painful left thumb that’d been dislocated. It was giving Aaron a lot of grief in the first session of training here in Leogang earlier in the week, so much so that he was doubtful as to whether he’d even be able to race today’s final. Thanks to some injury management and a smart use of track time, by the 2nd half of his qualifying run yesterday Aaron was able to see that he did indeed have a solid chance for today’s race.
VoulVoul Racing Many crashes and nights filled with pain later the UCI MTB World Cup in Leogang is a thing of the past. With all its highs and lows. Another weekend didn't go as planned even though three of our athletes were in the final. Now it's time to reflect, rest and train and let all bruises and cuts heal up until Val di Sole. Upwards and onwards! See you all there!
MS Mondraker Another video summary by Björn Hunger of our fabulous week in Leogang… good things happen when you don’t expect them! 4 elite men in the finals, 3 out of 4 in the top 10, 1 podium with a 3rd place and the 2nd place in the team results… you can’t ask for more- we are stoked!
Trek Factory Racing/Atherton Diaries Once again we hit up the infamously bikeparky World Cup venue Leogang, except this time they had a bit of a surprise in store for us! Follow the team across one of the most intense weekends in a long time as they tackle the "back to nature" track in the Austrian mountains. There are plenty of crashes and and mishaps along the way to our first World Cup win of the season!
