Sylvain Cougoureux climbed up to the third step of the podium in DH Junior Men in a bad weekend for other GALFER BIKE riders.

La localidad suiza de Lenzerheide acogía la segunda doble cita de la Copa del Mundo UCI MTB 2017 con las modalidades de Downhill y Cross-Country.

The best DH performance was Sylvain Cougoureux’s with his Intense M9 fitted with GALFER BIKE brake components. He scored the best time in the training sessions and finished third in the final round of his class. Moritz Ribarich (NS Bikes) was fourth. In Elite Women, the final was much contested and, in the end, only, the first four participants entered only 3 seconds apart. Tracey Hannah (Polygon UR) finished fourth, so she’s now second in the general classification and she still can win the title. In Elite Men, the best GALFER BIKE rider was Slawek Lukasik (NS Bikes) who finished 16th (his best performance to date in the World Cup). French rider Alex Fayolle (Polygon UR) was 21st, and he keeps the 11th place in the general classification. Noel Niederberguer (NS Bikes) was 25th, Kenta Gallagher (Polygon UR) 48th, and Mick Hannah (Polygon UR), after starting with the best 8th time, crashed and finished 77th.

The GALFER BIKE XC riders were also out of luck. The best rider was Rocío del Alba (Mondraker) in Junior Women, who finished 6th in the final classification. In Elite Men, Carlos Coloma (PMRA Team) was 18th after fighting hard to stay in the Top Ten. His team mate Catriel Soto finished 27th. In Elite Women, Brazilian rider Raiza Goulao (PMRA Team) had mechanical issues during the first round and had to stop up to three times, but she recovered and managed to finish 20th. In Junior Men, Belgian rider Pierre Defroidmont (Merida-Wallonie) was 17th.

The next round of the UCI DH World Cup will be held in Mont Saint Anne (Canada) the weekend of the 5th and 6th of August.
