Aug 31, 2021

A devastating rainstorm hits again on the 3rd race of the 2021 São Miguel DHI CUP, in Água Retorta Azores Portugal. In a race where grip is nonexistent, riders struggle to keep their feet on the bike and their place on the grid. Most experienced rider, João Machado beats the laws of grip and makes first place overall, followed by Rui Janeiro and young Pedro Câmara.

Pico de Água Retorta is a trail located in Povoação Azores Portugal. It´s mainly composed of small rounded rocks, that when wet make traction something nonexistent. Fast sections at the top, and technical ones at the bottom, make riders have to work different strategies all along the course.


1º) João Machado - 03:42m
2º) Rui Janeiro - 03:43m
3º) Pedro Câmara - 04:05m
