PHOTO EPIC: UCI DH World Cup #4 Lenzerheide

A reenergized Santa Cruz Syndicate find themselves just where they want to be; leading the series, leading the team overall and having just as much fun as before!

As race teams close out a memory filled 6 weeks of traveling and racing, they were met by a short Swiss track that brought about high speed racing, a surprise ending and repeat winners in both Elite classes. 

Finn Iles overcame a tough crash in qualifying to capture the win in finals, earning his second Junior World Cup Championship a full two rounds early.

Gee Atherton made his way back to the start line of World Cup before most would make it back on a road bike. Gee would score a respectable top 30 finish just a few short months after sustaining a dislocated hip and some broken vertebrae. 

Laurie Greenland scored his first World Cup podium this weekend. An incredible feat from the young English racer. 

Myriam Nicole did it; the first Elite woman this year to capture a second victory! She heads into the later half of the season with the leaders jersey, a career first for her. 

After a tough start to the year for the World Champion, Danny Hart has begun to string a solid set of results together, finishing 3rd in Andorra and 3rd again this weekend in Lenzerheide.

Another great performance left Greg sat in the hot seat with just one rider to come down; American Aaron Gwin. Up at all the splits, Gwin punctured within sight of the line, granting Greg an incredible 21st World Cup victory!
