    MUD, SWEAT AND FEAR: LEOGANG, AUSTRIA - UCI WORLD CUP #3

    Leogang was certainly a challenge, with weather playing havoc with the track and the track playing havoc with us! After the initial fun playing in the mud on Practice day, the course conditions changed and things got sticky and tricky.

    The mechanics did an amazing job keeping the wheels rolling as the riders negotiated an increasingly claggy course. In the pits there was a constant cycle of washing and drying kits, cleaning the decks, and building back confidence.

    Hitting the deck was par for the course this week and no one escaped entirely unscathed. Amaury slammed thigh-first into a root on Quali day which necessitated some heavy strapping, and further disrupted his quest to find the flow. Thibaut and Tristan both bounced off the ground a few times, and the fear of crashing played a big part in Myriam’s week as she struggled to ride with any confidence in the changing conditions. Indeed, it was the mental game that really took the greatest strength and skill to overcome. As race time drew nearer, the pressure to find a winning method in the muddy madness built.

    Race day brought with it beautiful sunshine and palpable nerves. A few more hours, a couple more runs, and then one chance to make it work. When the smallest errors and slightest doubts make big differences, it’s a wonder that Myriam landed in second place! Or perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised given her proven ability to perform under pressure. Despite a crash early in the run, she re-focussed and fired it up to go green at the finish with three riders to go. It wasn’t enough for the win, but the ability to turn a tough few days into another podium position is an impressive performance.

    The same goes for Amaury, who described this week in Leogang as one of the hardest race experiences of his career. The fun of the first few runs on Thursday quickly turned to frustration as he fought to figure out the flow. Nothing seemed to be working for him. He was at war with the track; no ceasefire, no truce, just hit after hit for what felt like little progress. And then, when it mattered, he managed to pull off a fourth place. It wasn’t clean and it wasn’t his best riding but it still secured a podium position and his overall lead.

    Thibaut was quietly going about his business all week, perhaps the calmest and most content of everyone. A solid seventh in Qualification set him up to unleash some speed on the Finals but a crash in the woods wiped his chances of a repeat podium performance in Leogang. Frustration was high, but Titi will process it and progress from it. 

    After a great Qualification run, Tristan was ready to keep the momentum rolling and lay down a performance that reflected his talent. Unfortunately, the momentum literally stopped in the section just prior to the motorway, which left him unable to carry the speed needed to clear some of the jumps. A couple of stalls in the woods only compounded the problem, and he arrived at the line disappointed. It wasn’t the run he hoped for, but 7th place despite the issues shows great potential

    The whole team works incredibly hard to reach the highest level, and in Leogang, we didn’t quite get there. Of course, it is frustrating to fall short, but it’s also humbling and inspiring to see that no matter the conditions, the work rate never drops. We all work to lift the level and each other. Ending the week on the podium as the Team of the Day and leading team of the World Cup was a nice reward. Onwards and upwards to Lenzerheide!

    KING OF THE FORTFORT WILLIAM, SCOTLAND - UCI WORLD CUP #2

    What a race, what a place, what a week, what a team!We returned to Fort William three years after the last World Cup at this legendary venue. The rugged but beautiful Scottish Highlands welcomed us with its usual splendour, a spot of sunshine but the promise of rain.

    For riders, bikes, and mechanics, the Fort William track is a brute: long, hard and relentless, and it inevitably comes with a healthy dose of rain and dirt. The work-rate was high but the rewards weren’t immediately apparent; day one of practice and timed training left some substantial question marks over what was needed to get up to pace.

    Qualification day came around with the mindset, “today is a new day”. And indeed it was. The process continued, progress quickened and it felt like the jigsaw pieces were beginning to fall into place. That said, Thibaut had a lucky escape from a crash in morning practice, and Tristan hit the deck twice in his Quali run which disappointingly meant he didn’t make it through to finals. Fort William always throws a curve ball or two, but on the whole it felt like we were heading in the right direction.

    Race day rolled round and the crowds rolled in. Nervous energy hung in the air like the rain as the riders tried to piece together the final preparations amidst the building atmosphere of the Fort. 

    Hugo was first to race. He had been looking comfortable on the bike and confident in his lines over the week, but the stars are yet to align for him at the World Cup. A clipped rock resulted in a broken derailleur, and with that the chance to prove his speed was ended. Still, he safely made it down for 11th place and some points in the bag. 

    For Myriam, being in the start gate in Fort William was in itself a victory. After suffering with a concussion since Lourdes, Pompon kept it safe and solid, finding the balance of pushing hard whilst managing fatigue and risk. She was rewarded with a fine third place, showing once again her physical strength and mental tenacity.

    Onto the Men’s race and what will remain an especially memorable day for the team. It’s an amazing feat to win a World Cup, but to come first and second in the same race is really something phenomenal. It’s not since Lenzerheide last year that Thibaut has had a clean World Cup race run, but after a slow start to the week things clicked into place when it mattered and he produced a brilliant performance. He wasn’t confident that it would be enough to stay on the podium, but as it turned out there would be only one man to go faster

    That man was Amaury, who made it three wins in a row in Fort William, and two wins on the bounce this World Cup season. No amount of Scottish rain could put out the fire in his belly, and he certainly lit up Fort William. Again. It’s easy to say that Momo is a machine, but the emotional rollercoaster of his week shows his deeply human side. The struggle was real, but the rewards were sweet. 

    So many tiny details have to come together in order to place first, second and third at a World Cup. It's not as easy as 1, 2, 3!  From the precise lines on track to the perfect bike set-up; from physio treatment to nutrition; from the right equipment to the right environment and the right headspace.Team work makes the dream work, and we certainly made it happen this weekend!
