Video | 2018 Downhill MTB World Cup Andorra Podium Runs

Stop 5 of the 2018 UCI Downhill MTB World Cup took place in Vallnord, Andorra. The fast and steep course made for an epic race with Loris Vergier taking his first World Cup win and Tahnée Seagrave claiming victory again.

In the Men’s race Finn Illes was the first rider to take a prolonged stay in the hot seat with a time of 4:08,634. Brook Macdonald would take home a welcomed 3rd place with a time of 4:05,659. Amaury Pierron was on track to make history and be the first man to win four races in a row, but his time of 4:05,388 was only good enough for 2nd place. Loris Vergier put down a blistering run of 4:04,055 to take his maiden World Cup victory. Luca Shaw qualified in first place but bad luck stuck again as he crashed in his final run and crossed the line in 31st.

Tahnée Seagrave was again victorious taking the overall with a time of 4:49,840. Rachel Atherton looked to be on a winning run, ahead in the first splits, but a bobble sent her off track – she managed to remount and cross the line in 2nd place with a time of 4:54,669. Tracey Hannah finish in 3rd with a time of 4:58,532.
