Bruni and Greenland win World Championships!

Posted by Tyler Anspach on

SDG's Loic Bruni (FRA) took home his first professional victory on the biggest stage possible, winning the 2015 UCI DH MTB World Championships in Andorra this past weekend.  Laurie Greenland continued his domination of the junior ranks by winning the rainbows in his respective category. The track in Andorra is known among racers to be one of the steepest, roughest and most challenging ones on the entire professional circuit. With 2 days of torrential rain and hail it went from difficult, to near impossible when the clay filled dirt turned almost instantly to grease early on in the week. As the...

Posted by Tyler Anspach on

It was another great weekend of World Cup racing for SDG as Laurie Greenland took the win in the junior event and Loic Bruni (FRA) took home second for the Elite men. Troy Brosnan joined Loic on the Podium in 3rd.   The track here at MSA is a beast, and the 25th running of the race here didn’t pull any punches. As usual, the race course features full speed open sections littered with loose sniper rocks hidden in the weeds, as well as incredible slick technical rock gardens that make riders arms scream for mercy. With the typical crazy Quebec...

A very wide,  creative tape job turned a track that most riders were not so sure about earlier in the week, into a course worthy of a World Cup race. Incredibly steep and loose, giant braking bumps...

Posted by Tyler Anspach on

SDG athletes got the 2015 MTB season off to a great start this weekend here in Rotorua, New Zealand for this first Crankworx festival south of the Equator. Loic Bruni (Lapierre) took home top honours in the downhill event despite taking a couple of huge crashes in practice in the days before the event.  The young frenchman took on a who's who of downhill and came out on top on a a wild track. Almost identical to the course used for the 2006 World championships, it was a high speed greasy ride down the mountain and though the roots. Dirt...

World Cup season ends in France.

Posted by Tyler Anspach on

The World Cup downhill season ended this past weekend in Meribel,  France and Loic Bruni led the charge with a 4th place finish for the men. For the women, Emmeline Ragot raced to a second place finish, capping off a great season. The brand new track here in Meribel was steep, technical and fast. Many people have called it the track of the year, and even potentially one of the best downhill tracks of all time. With dusty conditions, the track was as fast and loose as racers have seen all season. Taped wide from top to bottom, there were...
