Just two weeks after becoming belgian champion for the 7th time, Bertrand Gilles won the second round of the Nissan DH Cup in Namur (Belgium). After placing 7th in the seeding run on dry conditions, Bertrand proved once again his ability in the wet conditions to take a well deserved victory in the final, his first on this spectacular track of Namur. While his main contender, german Andreas Stieber fell in the very last corner Bertrand was able to ride the perfect run.
After the first round won by our rider Kristof Lenssens, the team Barracuda/Kona continues the domination on the Nissan DH Cup ! The 4th round of the IXS European Downhill Cup brought the majority of the European downhill elite to Wiriehorn, Switzerland. 300 riders from 20 different countries were facing a high speed course in dusty conditions.
