Josh Bryceland and Greg Minnaar joined one another on the podium after a wild week in Val D’Isere, France at the sixth world cup of the season with Josh 3rd and Greg 4th, just .19 of a second behind Josh. Steve Peat regained some form since his hamstring injury placing 12th on this short, fast track in the stunning French Alps. Brook MacDonald takes his first world cup win breaking the stranglehold that Minnaar and Gwin have had on world cup wins for the past two seasons. Aaron Gwin gains enough points to wrap up the overall title and Greg’s points margin for second over Gee Atherton shrinks to just 19 points.
The team made the trip to Val D’Isere for the next round of the 2012 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup on board their new Nukeproof Pulse frames. Simmonds managed 14th place while some of the other riders were disappointed with their result. Check out the video here. Filmed and Edited by MTBCut
