Jonnier wins again at the World Cup DH in Leogang


It’s been a while since the UCI Mountain Bike DH World Cup  had seen so many crashes in one race. The race track in Leogang (Austria) was destroyed after training, and the riders had to find the balance between trying to win and staying on the bike.


Sabrina Jonnier (Team Maxxis-Rocky Mountain) found the right mix of caution and aggressiveness and she won the Women Elite Downhill, strengthening her lead in the World Cup ranking. Floriane Pugin (Scott 11) was second, while Tracy Moseley (Trek World Racing) had to settle for third after a crash. 


Rachel Atherton had won the qualifying round and she was three seconds up by the time check, but a crash from which she did not restart, put an end to her race.
