THE INFAMOUS LES GETS DH TRACK GETS AN UPDATE

TRACK WALKS AND RACE PREP ARE UNDERWAY IN LES GETS

With the second round of the UCI DH World Cup about to go down in Les Gets, France we thought we’d quickly check in with the team after todays track walk, it’s a good thing we did too, as Miranda points out the track is virtually all new!

The last time Miranda and Connor raced at Les Gets was pre Covid back in 2019, the track was bone dry and Miranda finished the weekend in 10th and Connor finished in 13th, his second best result of the season, after finishing 8th at Leogang. With an entirely new fresh cut forest section and a bit of moisture in the ground, it looks we could be in for another round of exciting and unpredictable racing. Bring it on.

The athlete experience

It’s a brand new track here in Les Gets! Part of me misses the simplicity and all-out speed of the old track but the fresh lines cut through the woods is going to have all the makings of a good race! I’m number one DH fan, so I love being back at the races and seeing the process. I’m definitely nervous for practice but looking forward to getting back into it and progressing again on the downhill bike. I’ve given up trying to predict the future and now just roll with the punches, that said I’m starting practice on Maxxis Wet Screams!
