Video | 2018 Downhill MTB World Cup La Bresse Podium Runs

The final round of the 2018 UCI Downhill MTB World Cup took place in La Bresse, France over the weekend. Wet and muddy conditions proved difficult as the heavyweights battled it out on the short and diverse course.

In the men’s division, Martin Maes, fresh off a victory from the Enduro World Series in Whistler, took advantage of the soggy conditions to take the podium with a time of 2:26,841. Gee Atherton’s time of 2:28,232 slotted him into 2nd place with Brook Macdonald finishing in 3rd with a time of 2:29,996.
2018 Wold Cup Champion, Amaury Pierron looked to be on a winning run but crashed out on one of the last slippery turns. He crossed the line in 10th place with 2:32,857.

All Rachel Atherton needed was a podium finish to secure the 2018 title ahead of her rivals, and she did just that by taking the win with a time of 2:51,421. The win secured Atherton’s record breaking sixth overall World Cup title. Tahnee Seagrave, who qualified in first place, crossed the line less than a second behind in 2:52,059 to finish in 2nd place. Myriam Nicole rounded off the top three with her time of 3:03,083.
