Strong performance of Gregoire Pazdziorko at the IXS European DH Cup !
Gregoire Pazdziorko was in Leogang (Austria) for the IXS European DH Cup. The venue is one of the most popular places for MTB in Europe and will be the last round of this year world cup in a few months. The DH race was one of the many events hold during the famous Out of Bonds Festival. Unfortunatly the track used for this race was way to fast and not technical enough for a race of this level. It was not the kind of track Gregoire Pazdziorko like but he managed to have a good run during the final run, ending 7th junior (32th overall). A nice result in the middle of some of the most popular riders in the new junior world cup. After placing 4th in quali, Gregoire showed he can have some strong ambitions for the next rounds of the UCI World Cup. Before that, he will be in Špičák (Czech Republic) for the second round of the IXS Downhill Cup.
