Video Highlights: Val di Sole DH World Cup

Jul 10, 2018
by Red Bull Bike  

Val di Sole is a beast of the track. It's among the hardest and most technical courses on the Mercedes-Benz DH MTB World Cup when it's dry. Add heavy rainfall in the Trentino region over the last few days into the mix and then you have a course that's even more unpredictable than usual. The sun thankfully came out on finals day to improve conditions. But never underestimate Val di Sole's Black Snake course.

Seagrave sped out of the gate and looked really fast around the top turns. The winner here last year, the British rider knew what was needed to put in a good run on this technical track. A solid run from Seagrave saw her coming very close to Atherton’s split times, and as she approached the finish line a final sprint saw her claw the hotseat with a mere 0.123s lead.

As for Amaury Pierron... That’s now three out of three for Pierron and you wouldn’t bet against him making it four wins in a row in Vallnord in Andorra at the next stop of the Mercedes-Benz MTB World Cup.

 Congratulations to Max Commencal! Who 20 Years after the Sunn Chipie Team now has a bike that is at the top of the game, a team at the top of the game, a brand at the top of the game. Coundn't be better. Your the best!

And then, to all the nerds out there. Take a look at the Sunn Radical + of 1997-99 and compare it to the Commencal of today. Make your own conclusions, go home and come back if you find a solution.

By the way. It is shit that the Belgium just lost the game

 Negative propped because you ruined the game for me. I haven't watched it yet. I came to a MTB site to ignore the score.

 Monika was 3rd, she is a privateer, and she gets like 3 seconds?!?! You serious?!?! Cmon, thats bulls*it!

Veronika was good, really, but not as good as Monika and gets quite a good part in highlights... Im having a feeling, that you have to be from some important countries to be a part of PB, Redbull, etc or?!
