On the way from La Bresse/ FRA to the UCI worldcup season finals in Val Di Sole/ ITA, the MS-Evil/Gravity team stopped in Innsbruck to race the “Nordketten Pro Downhill” invitational race in Innsbruck/ Austria. The infamous trail down the “Nordkette” is well known in the European freeride scene and no one really thought that it’s possible to hold a race with international top stars on this track:
Length: 4.2 km
Altitude difference: 1000 meters
Track record: 10:31 minutes
The competition was a team event where 3 team riders and one wildcard rider form a squad join forces. One rider from each team were assigned to a start group and got points for their final positions. In the end all those points got accounted for the final team standings.
The MS-Evil/Gravity team won the Nodketten Pro Downhill race with 75 points and 18 points ahead of Alpine Commencal. Furthermore Brook MacDonald won the individual ranking with a new track record of 9:26:34 and Filip Polc got 2nd in the individual ranking. Congrats guys!!
