Round 5 of the Mercedes Benz UCI Mountain Bike World Cup arrived in the Pyrenees this week, to the steep and fast track of Vallnord, for the 5th round of the 2018 series. The YT Mob was missing its lead rider, Aaron Gwin, who is busy recovering from his thumb injury back home in California. This meant the team mates Neko Mulally and Angel Suarez were front and center for this week’s event. After both qualified solidly in 27th and 28th place yesterday, it came down to a fast and dry track here on Sunday, and for one rider, it was a dream run, and for the other, it was disappointment after a crash late in his run.
