Video: The Winning Runs from Maribor World Cup #2

Oct 18, 2020
by James Smurthwaite  

First half of the UCI Mountain Bike Downhill World Cup season 2020 is done and dusted. In contrast with round one on Friday, Sunday's round two in Maribor, Slovenia, treated riders with an almost dry track, allowing higher speeds which resulted in tighter margins at the finish line. Nina Hoffmann celebrated her first ever World Cup win in the Women's category. Marine Cabirou, Eleonora Farina, Myriam Nicole & Tracey Hannah completed the podium respectively.

Loris Vergier won the race in Men's category with another stellar performance, leaving Maribor with a perfect score of two gold medals. He was followed by his fellow Frenchman Loïc Bruni in second, Matt Walker (GBR) in third, Finn Iles in 4th and Troy Brosnan in 5th.

 Let's take a moment to appreciate the improved quality of the sound in these runs. It's almost like RAW bike sounds in this video, don't remember if it sounded like that on the live feed.

 Wow, Loris was 24 seconds faster than the other winning time at the jump at 2:07 (where all the crashes were in the practice sessions). That's almost unbelievable.

 Which accent do you prefer "Carrying good speed" in? That's pretty much all they are allowed to say on RBTV.
