A master of two trades; Maes does what no man has done before.

A race truly fitting for a World Cup final; La Bresse’s short track coupled with treacherous weather made for one of the most exciting finals in recent years.

7 races, 7 wins. Vali Höll has capped off the elusive perfect season in La Bresse.

Whip Off’s or World Cups, Kade Edwards always brings the style; 3rd place for the Trek Factory Racing rider in his last ever Junior World Cup.

After a mid-season injury, Myriam Nicole made her return to the top 3 in front of an elated home crowd.

Down in the points, Tahnee Seagrave gave La Bresse everything she had. Coming up just short, the FMD rider will be hungrier than ever for World Champs, just two short weeks away...

2017 presented Rachel Atherton a season she’d rather forget, but in 2018 the world witnessed a return to form, culminating in Atherton’s 6th World Cup Championship.

7th on the day and 2nd in the championship; a strong end to the season for Danny Hart.

Undoubtedly wanting to clinch another win in front of his home crowd, Loic Bruni would have to settle for 6th place in some of the most challenging conditions faced in recent years.

Starting off the season with an injury, Bernard Kerr labored through the middle half of the year but in La Bresse returned to form; 5th place for the Englishman.

Just when people were starting to count him out, Gee Atherton rose to the occasion. 1st in qualifying and 2nd in finals, Atherton proved he’s a long way from finished in La Bresse.

The first man in history to win an EWS and World Cup DH in the same season, Martin Maes did the unimaginable in La Bresse. Clearly stuck by emotion, Maes enjoyed the spoils of a remarkable performance amidst the chainsaw-wielding French crowd. Full-time DH in 2019? Who knows...
