The return of Simone Medici (Kona Ambassador) to the downhill world cup competitions took place in recent days during the italian stage of downhill World Cup in Val di Sole. The first day of practice served to regain the race rhythm and to study the best lines in this difficult and technical track. Friday was the day of qualifying and, despite a strong thunderstorm shortly before his departure, with an aggressive and fast descent Simone qualified for Saturday’s final
This is really a remarkable performance after more than 3 years of absence from these races. Congratulations to Simone and to all the Kona Italy team.
Riccardo Gramatica unfortunately suffered from a shoulder injury after a bad crash during free practice on Thursday.
