2Intense DH World Cup Racing in Maribor last weekend. Shoutout to #oneofus Nina Hoffmann for winning her first ever UCI Mountain Bike DH World Cup! Greg Minnaar was able to finish on the podium and sits in 7th o/a.
“Incredible. My first ever World Cup victory. I think a made a bit of history, 25 years after a last German Downhill World Cup victory. It felt so good to get one good run together without major mistakes. I knew the speed was there, but I always got stopped by horrible track conditions or unlucky crashes. So happy to made it finally to Top of the women’s field. Now build up consistency and establish on the podium spots. On to Lousa!”
Our Junior Daniel Slack was able to bring a flawless run to 2nd and missed the top spot only by 0.091 sec.
“Pretty happy with the result as I’ve always struggled in Maribor over the years – terrain is tough to read and I struggle with grip when gets wet. 7th o/a is good for me on that track. Happy to be on the pace and mixing it with the top guys and now heading to Lousa with confidence.”
Already next week we will continue with the World Cup in Lousa/Portugal.
