Dusty Downhill Racing in Slovenia | UCI Downhill MTB World Cup Maribor

talking of intense look at the eyes of this woman then miriam nicole from france second in qualifying not outside the top three in any sector on this track and nicole she’s going to be pushing hard today miriam’s a fierce rider and she does not like to lose i don’t think so having those young girls coming up chasing her biting at her heels she wants this and you can see it in her eyes 31 years old now some big big injuries along the way for this woman but nothing seems to slow her down 2.2 up then so nicole very much on a run here in maribor she’s letting it go she’s got the brakes off i don’t see her slowing up for anything she’s just letting that front wheel go and just holding on for dear life yeah i’m fair on the way out maybe got a little wide in there on the exit of that second she took the straighter line and we saw already earlier that was the faster way loses 0.57 a little breather on the flat section there going into our serious pumpy section yeah the french national champion should still see her pace carries on still should be around a second and a half up she was slower through that key section remember let’s have a look the next split will tell us 2.1 so losing nothing yeah she just lost nothing and this is a section that i would say suits miriam’s writing style wouldn’t you say rob well she’s you know highly skilled isn’t she looking at working so hard here so hard she wants it she knows how to go into the holes that’s one thing i noticed when i was racing her i would always kind of break for a section and she would just be able to let the bite go and let her body kind of catch up later and she’s riding exactly like that today just letting it go letting it roll choosing the line she wants to go on i feel like she must look about 20 meters ahead of her because it looks like she’s riding spot on well that’s all right tracey stays green but it comes down a little bit i had a second deer last year and a four so on both podiums but she’s going to be frustrated by a season so far this year crashed actually at both of races in the j and in league but this is the determined to run nicole looking as good as i think we see her riding brilliantly today riding amazingly rob you can see those elbows getting tired i actually hit the last couple of turners turners corners they’re shaking just won the french national championship straight across that triple then she will be very excited to be up heading into that red bull gap jump the 2019 world champion is it going to be enough to see miriam nicole take the lead i think it is 337 ferrino nicole smashes it 335.9 1.3 into the green and just a one woman now left at the top the formidable figure of valentina hole will be next but that was a good run for miriam good to see you again miriam we’ve been waiting for this to come out look at it straight between that gap pedal didn’t hit full commitment into that rock section you can see it was up and down between her and eleanor yeah all the way down on the lead on his own analysis oh nicole pulling it back in sector 11 nowhere it counted look at that aggression in the corner knee out looks like we’re in moto gp in this last corner of little valentino rossi tribute loris vergier the man who won both of the world cup races here last year the man who won the european championships on this mountain a few days ago the man who was fastest qualifier has he got an answer for tebow de prella this afternoon it’s going to take something special from this frenchman well if it’s a smooth run that will win then this now this man knows how to deliver that smooth run well he’s certainly this man knows how to float like a butterfly and he might need to down here going for a triple of wins here as well point two back of the first flip if he does win he’ll only be the sixth rider in history to have a hat trick or wins oh good through the rocks maybe a little wide on the exit of that last turn let’s have a look on the mercedes-benz key section not hard on the pedals and version goes faster the tebow depella by 0.4 through that rock section in that new european championship jersey that might mean we’re gonna see at the next split right after this jump here so this split will tell us a bit more oh and he’s green point seven up now then wow look at that from loris vergier so finding pace down there god this is what we talked about but all pre-season the luck hasn’t been with vergiere like so many riders but those first two world cups a little later now entrance there but carrying good speed out of it taking the inside not going through those big holes there by smart carried good speed as well so the most important split on the track next and it’s still green by one point it’s about the pace of this man look how fast he’s going incredible and this remember is without emery peer on there so many fast french riders look good through there claudio absolutely clean is it no mistake at all is it going to be a perfect weekend for loris versier the clock all going this way at the moment now just this long run down now perfectly at the sweet spot after landing there doesn’t need to pedal much he just rolls it there tuck it all the way down here then depress 306.8 here comes ah 1.78 wins maribor and becomes only the sixth rider in history to have three repeat wins at any venue incredible stuff virginia’s done it it’s been a long time coming for this man this year but vergiere shows us just what he’s capable of finding delivering for trek new team this year he was so cool about it he didn’t do one single pedal stroke from the forest onwards he just let it roll that’s confidence go may what a rice [Music] that was inside that was a rice it’s left me out of breath i’m i’m wondering if we sweat more than the riders [Music] his fourth world cup win three of those four world cup wins have come here on this mountain believe it or not and as you can see green in the last three zones meaning he did it exactly how you had to do it making sure you still have that energy towards the bottom even though the way that lori’s road to the bottom didn’t even need that much energy because he was just coasting basically he wasn’t attacking or pedaling just making sure he lets it go on the right line doesn’t touch the brakes too much a man very much in control of his own destiny i would say wouldn’t you claudio perfectly calculated i would say a very deserving winner a brilliant rundown for him today under all the pressure vergier comes good you
