Race one finals came around fast, by Wednesday we were already racing finals. Dry conditions were set for fair and fast racing and the race didn’t disappoint. Emilie started the day out well for the team. A fast start saw her gaining time through the steeper technical mid-section of track and a ferocious pedal out of the final rock garden sent her into 7th. A great ride matching her season best.
Sam was feeling at home racing the finals, a great run with two small mistakes put Sam in 36th and up there with the world best. Happy with his ride Sam had so many positives to take into the next round.
Bernard went hard on the upper section of tracks. Looking pinned on the jumps and committed through the steep section. Just over 2 seconds back at split 2, Bernard crossed the line in 5th. Once the dust had settled from an exciting race Bernard finished off in 16th. Another great and consistent result but Bernard being Bernard, he was wanting more.
