World Cup 2017 Round 3 : Leogang : Qualification

10th June 2017

During the Leogang UCI MTB DH World Cup

A whole nights rain made the track “super slidey” Kade said “practice was amazing, I was loving the track, but then the rain came… but quali was good, I just chilled out and got a good run in, the track is proper beaten up!”

Muddy had “got a lot out of practice” despite a crash in his second run which left him “pretty bruised up”. Muddy and mechanic Polish Pete punched out as many runs as possible in the time while getting on top of bike set-up. Muddy’s fall caused him to chill out a bit but Muddy reported that the track was evolving so fast that it was almost a good thing to slow down and sort some lines out – this view was borne out by his 36th place in qualification today, a huge relief after last weekend at Fort William.

Muddy said “ I had so much fun today, much better than yesterday!” I seemed to find my groove in practice and get up to a solid pace – after qualifying I went for a track walk with Brownie finding some good lines but mostly gaining some reassurance that my lines are mostly good – I just need to hit it up a bit harder.”
