Australians Mick Hannah and Tracey Hannah won silver and bronze medals, respectively, at the UCI MTB World Championships 2017 held at their home country.

Mick Hannah rode the race of his life. The Australian was just 0.3 seconds behind the winner in DH Elite, using GALFER BIKE brake components in his Polygon. Mick scored the best time on Friday and even improved on Sunday, but French rider Loic Bruni managed to arrive first. His sister Tracey was also near victory but a crash put her third, just 1.9 seconds behind the winner in Elite Women. In Junior Men, French rider Sylvain Cougoureux (Intense) almost climbed up to the podium but was 4th due to a crash the previous day.

GALFER BIKE riders didn’t have the best of lucks in XC. The best result was young Rocío del Alba, who was 5th at the U-23 Women. In Elite class, Catriel Soto was 11th, and Raiza Goulao finished 14th. The Spanish Olympic medalist Carlos Coloma had problems at the start of the race, finishing 29th.

GALFER BIKE had massive presence in Cairns 2017 with 17 riders of nine different countries relying their braking on the Spanish brand in the most important race of the year.
