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.
