Kona Super Grassroots rider Noah Hofmann made his first trip to Fort William, Scotland, for his second-ever elite race over the weekend. The weather conditions were Scottish, so the track was very challenging. Noah had good training runs and was able to increase his speed in each practice run. On qualifying day, it started raining again as is usual in Fort William, so he had to find a dry place at the top for the warm-up. With a 25 minutes delay, Noah started his qualifying run. At the top, he slipped in one of the corners, which cost him 1/600ths of a second and the chance of qualifying, (the difference between 60th and 66th place). The next World Cup race will take place in Leogang at the beginning of June on Noah’s home soil.
