A Roller Coaster of Emotions at UCI World Championships Cairns
ilabb family riders Tracey and Mick Hannah from Team UR left it all out on the track on an epic day of downhill racing with enough thrills and spills to make this event one to remember.
Continuing her dominant season Tracey Hannah looked her usual self, setting a blistering pace until pushing a little too hard resulting in a huge crash. Showing her grit and determination, Tracey brushed herself off after being knocked out and still managed to finish 3rd not even two seconds behind the winning time.
With the backing of a passionate Aussie
crowd Mick Hannah didn’t hold anything back putting in one of the best runs of
his career. Despite the slippery track
conditions Mick threw down a clinical run destroying the best time and sending
the home crowd wild.
However, former elite world champ, Loic Bruni, was soon to close out the event beating Mick’s time by 0.3 seconds resulting in a 2nd place finish for the Team UR rider.
Despite a rollercoaster event a massive shout out to the Team UR riders retaining their #1 DH Team ranking. We can’t wait to see what these guys bring next season!! Yeeow!
