The UCI Mountain Bike Downhill World Cup grande finale was nothing short of a spectacle on two wheels. Thousands of fans lining up the track in Snowshoe saw the world’s finest battle each other for one last time in 2021.

As the women took to the track, we were in for high drama. By the time Myriam Nicole set off, the title was hers to lose. But Murphy’s law ruled: she made a mistake close from the end of the track, and we could only watch in disbelief as she lost the front and went down. She got up about as quickly as she could, but crossed the line in 7th place and opened the door for Vali Höll to claim the race win and the overall World Cup title in her first elite season.

When it was time for the men to fight for the world tittle, Loic got at the line needing 5th or better to take the overall… But he’s not playing for 5th, he’s playing for the win! If you want to know what perfection looks like, that was it! Super Bruni did it again.
