Qualifying Report: UCI World Cup 2017 Round 4: Vallnord, Andorra

30th June 2017


Today’s track at la Massana was “ A wild ride” which saw the elite team members taking it fairly easy to guarantee a qualification for Muddy and a shoulder-sparing ride for Rach, while Kade was his irrepressible self, fast and loose all the way down into third!

The track was dry all day today with some pretty big holes developing , it rained a little after racing had stopped but “not enough to make a difference” with more thunderstorms forecast tomorrow all eyes are on the skies!


Kade said “ The track is so dusty and blown out! My run was messy but solid enough and hopefully it will be dry for the Juniors! I know that I lost time in a couple of spots so I can definitely go quicker”

Muddy “ I’m satisfied with how today went… It’s not exactly the pace I want but I was definitely anxious about getting down to make sure I would be in tomorrow’s Finals. Polish has worked wonders on my Trek Session this weekend it feel sso sick!!” Not sure on the forecast for tomorrow, we just got a solid shower after quals but perhaps my lower quali position might keep me dry”


Rachel “ It was a pretty painful run down the hill but I got to be happy with that and proud of my body for coming so far in this short time. Such a fun track here in Andorra , I wish I was fit enough to have more fun!”
