Super G Results: Snow Bike World Championships 2024

Feb 10, 2024 at 4:20
by Ed Spratt  
The results are in from the first of two events at the Snow Bike World Championships in Châtel. After competing in the Super G event, it is two rainbow jerseys for France as Morgane Such and Pierre Thevenard took the gold medals.

Up first on the ski slope was the elite women, where Morgane Such and Veronika Widmann traded positions until the final split to the line. In this sector, Morgane found a second against the Italian World Cup racer and took the victory. Lisa Baumann put in a strong effort for third place, even holding the fastest split time in the final sector by 0.83 seconds.

With a large field of 42 riders for the elite men's racing, there was a decent field of riders battling for the newly formed Snow Bike World Champion title. Henry Kerr was flying through the first two splits as he led Pierre Thevenard by 0.18 seconds into the final part of the course. The Irish rider couldn't hold his winning pace through the final sector as he went third fastest here and handed a lead of 0.97 seconds to Pierre Thevenard, who was fastest in the sprint to the line.

Check out the full breakdown of the results from today's racing below and stay tuned for the results from the Dual Slalom.

 @vinay: Global warming is a deception of Leftist Propagandist, provoked by a cult following of mainly misfits and degenerative imbeciles following the doctrine of their wealthy hypocritical masters that care not for any of them or the planet. The cycle of warmer and cooler climate is a perpetual state that is in harmony with the universe and will continue it's course if there is plastic, fossil fuels and burping cows or not. Let the DV's Begin!

 @likeittacky: Yes, indeed there has been a cycle of warmer and cooler climate over millions of years. For the past ten thousand years it has remained more or less level (compared to those larger fluctuations before that time). It was already at a peak temperature actually, not an ice age where it remained steady. Those ten thousand years was about the time when human civilization developed. Not saying here weren't humans before that, it is when humans started doing human things like agriculture etc. Sure there have been fluctuations, but the trend was steady. About 200 years ago, at the start of the industrial revolution (primarily burning coal rather than wood), we've seen a rising trend again and it is accelerating. If it would be the natural cycle, it would have been time for another ice age, not for the temperature to rise. Obviously, after a nuclear war we'll see a nuclear winter which will cool the climate again. From what I understand, it will be quite dry too though so despite the cold we might not quite get to enjoy the snow.

Either way, in the context of this topic, we both agree that temperature is rising so it is primarily the older generation who has had the opportunity to recreate in snow.

 @vinay:@vinay: Heres, the thing, You are an evolutionist, believing in groups of mainly leftist / funded scientist who have been writing textbooks for students on the basis of research and hypothesis for many decades, on topics such as the origins of man...descending from homo erectus, earths history / time, separating of continents, extinction of life and on climate itself. Where I on the other hand am a creationist, believing in a Creator that laid the foundation of the heavens and earth, thus creating a moral-intelligent man and a planet that once had no rain and a moderate climate full of carbon over the entirety of the earth, feeding the echo system and nurturing plant life. The change in climate arose as the result of rebellion, causing the degradation of man himself during the antediluvian era; thus, causing earth to be forever changed in climate as a result with turbulent weather systems and patterns that have no bounds and no mercy with everything becoming acclimate. Have you ever considered the earths violent movements and extreme weather conditions may possibly be signs of not so good times for earths history and are merely warnings to a lost and wandering world on the brink of impending doom?

But no i do not agree in rising temps as you do in the sense its all happening now and due to current development or burning of fossil fuels. Imagine. Although i do agree we can do better in stewardship...(there is a lot trash of all types lingering around) and better energies but defiently electric is not the direction that will bring harmony to anything. Although hydrogen could.

 @BenPea: Because its a product of creations creation.....DUH, Peabrain. But if you really need to know...., somebody has to trigger the fools and arouse their true disdain and ill will towards defenders of truth and them that stand in opposition to demagoguery, false teachers, and corrupt over zealous environmentalist; who's mission is to lead society into darkness and cold. Hence, that maybe they to someday might reject the lies and be liberated from their chains that tether them to disfunction, fallacy and oppression from erroneous education.

 @commental: the fact that we all folowing race series organized by the UCI sucks!

All disciplines should be independent or at least somebody should create a Action/Gravity Mountainbike Organization that gives more seriousness and professionalism to (4x, DH, Enduro, Dual Slalom, Pumptrack, Slopestyle, Freeride) we can leave the rest of boring disciplines to the UCI.

 I remember when people thought 4x would be the next big thing so the UCI killed Dual Slalom and replaced it with 4x. The top pros stopped competing in it, people stopped paying attention, and it slowly died. Bring back Dual Slalom.

 The glory days with 4X and DH on the same weekend and live coverage on Freecaster/Red Bull TV. Mountainbiking has grown massively over the past years and it's just sad that new and old fans can't enjoy the exciting coverage we once had. Sure riding on the hills is still the same but for me closely following the sport added another lever of being truly involved and some extra motivation for training and pushing the limits.

 @commental: uci is a joke. They should keep world champs for themselves. Everything else should be independent from those suckers.
  • 2 1
 DS has consistently been part of the Crankworx events, hasn't it? 4X is still quite alive in central Europe even though the North Americans appear to think it is dead. Me personally, I think 4X has more potential as you can just race your mates down a track without the track being too prepared like BMX or DS requires. Either way, I'd say you can have both and competitors can happily compete in both on the same bike.

 This is a world champs like me being the fastest down my local elementary school's snowy hill on a waxed-up Chevette hood in 1990 was a world champs, because nobody else was doing it. As far as I know I'm still reigning.

 Ah, but how did you fair sitting on a folding lawnchair, sitting on a GMC hood, on snow being pulled by a truck? 48mph. Good thing I was running on liquid courage and wearing a 30 year old snowmobile helmet, because it sounds dangerous 20 years later. Now the recliner on said hood, much safer.

 @endoguru: Sadly, I'm not. But when I saw one of the first Nitro Circus videos, think it was a couch on skis and on dirt, I called my friend up, asked if the mud pit had water, if he still had the hood and the recliner, if his mud jeep was running and had a full tank of gas, cuz I have a crazy idea. Good thing I brought goggles. Someone, somewhere has pictures. That was a fun summer night.

 Did they actually get proper rainbow jerseys etc? It indeed is awkward to hold a world championship without any (or at least one I know of) competition to select and rank the athletes. To then call it a world championship to only be held between Alp countries, Ireland and the UK.

At least Cedric Gracia got to race again, that's good.

 New ideas & to innovate are beautiful + these riders are all worthy of recognition taking on brand new challenges.

But I have to ask how can it be a 'World Championship' without a single rider from the Americas, notably Canada & the USA, nor anybody from Down Under, NZ, or any other continent than Europe?

It should have been named the Euro Championship accordingly in by own humble opinion - The UCI has its work cut out for next year's edition.

Not to mention they have to stop and reverse the slaying of Enduro

 From what I can find on the old social media, most riders are calling this event pretty gnarly! Lets face it, a flat out 2 minute run with metal spikes in your tyres that could tear you a new one in a second, all sounds dangerous to me. But not having seen any of the racing footage my mind has not been made up on this event yet. If it looks good on TV/phone screen then why the hell not? You can bet your backside Redbull have already discussed a hard snowline event!?
