The results are in from Les Gets after some incredible racing. Amaury Pierron went flat out in his race run besting fellow Frenchman Loic Bruni to the top spot. Both French riders were looking fast all week but a crazy run from Pierron put him over two seconds ahead. Breaking up the French party at the top would be Laurie Greenland and Troy Brosnan. Loris Vergier completed the top five and made it three French riders in the top five. Brendan Fairclough laid down a great run that looked unbeatable for most of the day as he secured a sixth place on the new Scott Gambler.
In the Elite Women's Tracey Hannah would get her second win of 2019 just beating Marine Cabirou by only 0.677
seconds. Mariana Salazar crossed the line two seconds back in third with Eleonora Farina getting a podium spot for the Mondraker team. Nina Hoffmann managed to stay upright and keep both her shoes on this weekend and finished fifth. Vali Höll set the fastest time of the day for all women, showing again she will be a real podium threat when she moves up to the Elite rank next year.
