done and dusted- the first round of the 2019 UCI MTB worldcup is in the books and even it did not end top class we are happy about the overall result: 2 top 10, 3 riders in the top 20 Elite men and a 5th place for the team.

We are Maribor again for the second weekend on the trot. It was relatively the same track as the IXS last weekend with a few new sections to speed things up. Our boys were already comfortable on the dry Slovenian soil. Practice on Friday and Saturday morning was lovely and dry but come qualifying it was a different kettle of fish. With big downpours for the Elites, it proved difficult to judge how hard to push resulting in Rudy not qualifying and Henry having a big stack in the infamous rock garden. This left the oldest and young members of the team to do battle on Sunday.
