GOOD WEEKEND FOR MONDRAKER IN...

The World Cup results for MS Mondraker and the PMG Racing Team at the Lenzerheide were positive. However, Bec McConnell is relegated to second place.

The Lenzerheide World Cup is now history and overall, it has been a good weekend for Mondraker. Podium and two top 15 for MS Mondraker, top 10 and Bec is still in a good position to fight for the overall win in XCO. McConnell remains first in the XCC Short Track standings.


PMG RACING TEAM

We all know that the World Cup has the best riders in the world and to get a good result is very, very difficult. After Bec McConnnell's 3 consecutive victories, there was a fair chance that she would not be able to continue at such a high level for a long time. Indeed, it happened. Bec finished 14th in the XCO Lenzerheide final (11th in XCC Short Track) fighting and giving her all until the end. This result relegates her to second place in the overall standings, but only one point behind the leader Loana Lecomte. However, we all would have signed up to be in this great position before the start of the season and we are extremely proud of what you are delivering this season. Bravo Bec!


Finally, a good result for Jofre Cullell. The Catalan, who already came very close to such a result last season, achieved his first top 10 in the Elite World Cup in Switzerland, crossing the finish line in an impressive 10th position. This great result reinforces his good form in the most important phase of the season once past the halfway point of the competition. Jofre said he was "happy with the result and with my first top 10 as an elite in the World Cup. I felt good from the start, making a good start and managing my stamina from the middle of the race so that all the effort wouldn't take its toll on me at the end of the race. This tenth place is a good morale boost for the next objectives, the Vallnord race next week and the end of the season".


MS MONDRAKER

Once again, Eleonora Farina had a fantastic performance. The Italian climbed up to the third step of the podium thanks to a perfect run that allows her to consolidate the 4th position in the overall standings. Considering the very high level in this category, we can safely say that this is a really good result.


On the other hand, in the men's category we finally got to see the full potential of the young New Zealander Tuhoto-Ariki. Having qualified in 47th position on Friday, Tuhoto shaved almost 10 seconds off his time, which allowed him to take 13th place in the final. David Trummer also made it into the top 15. The Austrian continues to prove his consistency thanks to his adaptation to the team and with the Summum Carbon.


Another positive note, although not during the final downhill, was to see Brook MacDonald qualify in 11th position. Brook, who is at his best level of the season, suffered a crash on Saturday which prevented him from fighting for a good position. A real shame.


With almost no time to digest the results of this past weekend, the World Cup heads to Vallnord, Adorra, where this weekend we will once again enjoy the DH, XCO and XCC Short Track races. Both MS Mondraker and the PMG Racing Team will be there to continue showing the good level in which they are after Lenzerheide.
