Mont-Sainte-Anne has been a theatre for downhill mountain biking and the world cup circuit since it’s inception, playing host to many a big show and some historic moments. This weekend was no different and we saw some amazing racing with some of the best riders in the world finding form again and adding even more depth to the top of the table.

The elite women’s race was another battle that saw Vali Holl take the win over Nina Hoffmann and Eleanora Farina. Mayriam Nicole was on pace with a two second lead before her race was undone by a flat tire that saw her finish 13th. A stand out performance by Jessica Blewitt led to her 4th place finish and Aussie Cassie Voysey qualified and finished in 14th place.

The Elite Men’s race was a race that saw the first Canadian win on home soil since Stevie Smith with Finn Iles battling his way to first place over Laurie Greenland, his first World Cup win. Troy Brosnan found pace again and took his rightful place on the podium in third place with Aaron Gwin and Bernard Kerr rounding out the top five.
