RD 2: Leogang, Austria
The second round of the UCI DH World Cup moved just across the border to the breathtaking Leogang, in the Austrian Tyrolian Alps.
Looking a little different from the 2022 race here, the 2023 track was dry, dusty and unbelievably fast. Building on the postive results from Lenzerheide, the Continental Nukeproof Factory Racing team of Ronan Dunne, Chris Cumming, Veronika Widmann and Louise Ferguson were feeling confident sitting in the top 5 in the team rankings.
The new format of a semi-final and final dictated that practise starts on Thursday followed by qualifying Friday and both Finals taking place on the Saturday. The Continental Nukeproof Factory Racing team, despite taking some getting used to, are enjoying the challenge of the new format the opportunity for more time on track.
