SCOTT Downhill Factory Team’s Marine Cabirou took second place in the Elite Women’s race at World Cup Les Gets DH. In Elite Men, Canyon Factory Downhill Team’s Troy Brosnan and Santa Cruz Syndicate’s Loris Vergier made the podium in fourth and fifth places, earning two of the seven top-ten spots Maxxis-sponsored riders took in the category. SRAM TLD Racing’s Vali Höll continued her domination of the Junior Women’s category with yet another decisive win. The race was held July 13 in Les Gets, France.

Höll won Junior Women by 12 seconds, with a final time that would have secured a victory in the Elite Women’s race.
It seems that only Höll can stop herself, but that's not likely. 📸@maddogboris
