Even though the Les Gets World Cup got cancelled, the P2V team from there were really motivated and wanted to make something happen so they organized this invite only timed session weekend with a bunch of pro teams. The track was pretty amazing with different terrain and super physical, a great practice for the races coming. It was also a great opportunity to get more work done on the bikes.
Tracey had a great time learning the track and pushing her limit. Some jumps were pretty sketchy so Tracey preferred to play it safe and after avoiding 2 dangerous features, she was just 2 sec off Marine Cabirou.
After a mix of Enduro and DH races, Joe was excited to have another full DH week. He worked on a few setups on the bike and tried to let loose but it wouldn’t be enough and finished 19th. We know Joe had more in the tank.
Mick took advantage of this timed session to work on the fact that 10 months without racing is long and built his speed through the weekend. He finished with the 20th time.
As Fabien was on site, he decided to hop on his bike and take part in this event. He had a great time riding with Tracey to work on her lines and enjoyed himself on the bike for one of the first times since cracking a rib at Crankworx Summer Series.
Meanwhile in Italy, Dan was at Pietra Ligure for another round of the EWS. This one was filled with big stages and long climbs. It was a tough day for the Big Bad Wolfe after a crash on stage 2.
It’s time for Mick and Tracey to take a week off before Crankworx Innsbruck. Meanwhile, Joe will meet Dan in Italy for the final EWS of the year in Finale Ligure.
