Our MTB riders were back in action in Austria this weekend at the World Cup in Leogang.
We had four riders competing over the weekend, Tokyo-bound Haley Batten and Christopher Blevins, our Brazilian U23 Alex Malacarne, and Italy’s Chiara Teocchi.
Friday’s short course saw Haley Batten finish in 5th, followed by Chiara in 19th, while in the men’s short course, Christopher Blevins survived a crash to come home in 36th position after a typically aggressive performance.
On to the XC and Alex put in another rampaging performance to go from 51st position on the start line to 24th at the finish line in the U23 event.
In the elite mens XC, Christopher came home in 21st position in a competitive field, while Haley finished in 16th in the women’s elite event. Just one downside to the weekend as Chiara was taken to hospital after a crash in the XC, but she is already recovering well.
