DH winner from Le Locle (MTB world championships)

Yesterday there was the DH world championship in Leogang in Austria. Challenging weather conditions including rain, snow, 5C,mud and slippery tree roots, lots of them. Camille Balanche overcame the grueling conditions, avoided a crash and won the race. More details here https://www.ride.ch/de/news/boom-cam...-weltmeisterin

Ironically the commentary from ride.ch is that the track is not representative of the sport when this is downhill: you ride down no matter what. Hard to believe an MTB publication worries about mud, tires only get clogged if you don't keep them spinning
