Santa Cruz Syndicate’s Loris Vergier was a close second in Men’s Elite with a run that bikehub called “absolutely electric, getting loose in the dust but remaining upright and precise.” His time was a mere .423 seconds behind the eventual winner’s. In the Women’s Elite race, SCOTT Downhill Factory’s Marine Cabirou posted a career-best Elite result and took second place.

SRAM TLD Racing’s Vali Höll made her final run more than 12 seconds faster than the second-place rider in Junior Women’s, a category she has dominated this year. Her time would have put her in fourth place in Women’s Elite.
