UCI DH World Cup Fort William | Race Results

Fort William played host to another nail biting round of World Cup Downhill racing yesterday as the World’s best racers tried to conquer the longest track on the circuit. It had been three years since the last round at Fort William, the Scottish weather delivered some testing conditions and round two of the 2022 season was an epic event. Here’s the race results……

Fort William has taken some scalps over the years and this year was no different with some of the best riders in the World missing their chance to race. Loic Bruni crashed during training leading to a broken collarbone, Finn Isles was out with concussion, Aaron Gwin crashed in qualifying missing the main event, Brook MacDonald had a rear flat in qualifying missing the main event and so many more top riders missed the final.

As the women took to the track it was a moist and sticky track that was on offer in cold drizzly conditions. Many of the top riders made errors in the wet and lost time, but Nina Hoffmann managed to lay down an amazing run that saw her take the win by nearly 4 seconds. Looks like the move to The Santa Cruz Syndicate has paid dividends for her and it’ll be an exciting year in Women’s racing.

The men’s field proved to be an almost all French domination with only Laurie Greenland able to break into the top five as a Brit. Amaury Pierron continued his form and took his third win at Fort William in a row over Thibuat Diprella and Laurie Greenland. Pierron proving he is the man to beat for 2022 and holding the lead in the overall.
