Pro-race favorite Troy Brosnan crashed and still finished 8th. While the team was gunning for a medal, three riders in the top 10 is not a bad weekend out. Check in with the team for highlights and post-race thoughts from Leogang.
Commencal Muc-Off: Weekend Warriors
Commencal walked away from the mud of Leogang with some serious hardward. Second in elite women for Myriam Nicole. Third in a wild run for Remi Thirion. While Nicole would have liked to defend her 2019 championship title, silver’s not a bad consolation!
POV – Jack Moir’s 6th place race run
Australia’s “Shark Attack” Jack Moir was one of a very select list of riders to put together a clean – and fast – run in Sunday’s finals. Somehow, his GoPro also stayed (mostly) clean. Moir’s shared the POV footage of his sucessfull mud wrangling run, which earned him a sixth place overall in Leogang.
