SDG finished off the international race season in style this past weekend in Hafjell, Norway. Troy Brosnan lead the charge with a third place finish, .566 seconds off the the win. Hands down the most impressive ride of the week however went to SDG rider Neko Mulally -- the American rider broke his chain on the start ramp, and still somehow managed to pump his way down the track and into 4th place!
In what may be one of the most crash filled World Championship downhills in recent memory, many of the top favorites went down in a cloud of dust in the tricky rock sections as speeds on the track reached in excess of 80km/h in the speed trap. The track was made rougher than usual following a week of Masters racing in the pouring rain just over 10 days ago. Huge holes and ruts littered the track, and most of the dirt had been washed away in the already precarious rock sections.
In the ladies department, it was Casey Brown flying the SDG flag in 12th place.
Loris Vergier took home the Junior Men's saddle on Board an SDG saddle followed by Laurie Greenland in second, also riding SDG.
Other results of note for SDG athletes were brook Macdonald in 5th, Samuel Blenkinsop in 7th. Loic Bruni in 8th and Jack Moir in 10th.
