Who can believe that the final round of the World Cup has come round so fast?
The shortest track of the year held plenty of challenges, especially after heavy rain which started about an hour before racing made sure that conditions were prime for plenty of crashes and shake ups in expectation!
There aren’t any points for qualifications at this round but that won’t stop Kade and Gee being totally stoked on today’s victories!
In the Junior Women Mille crashed out on the jumps but isn’t badly hurt and scrambled back on her bike to finish 4th.
In the Junior Men Kade took the win, 3.5 seconds clear of Henry Kerr with overall leaders Daprela and Kye Ahern in 5th and 6th respectively.
In the Women’s Tahnee took the win with Rachel steady in second.
In the Men’s race Charlie had a tense time waiting for the race to come to a close – finishing 60th to take the last place in tomorrow’s Finals.
But Gee demonstrated that he’s back at the top of his form with an awesome run and special bottom section landing him first place!
