What a time to be alive! I know I say this every week but after cutting a few laps of Hattock earlier in the day I have never been so jealous of those racing, what a track and what a day!! With 50+ racers and a whole load more media squids and hecklers lining the Super Morzine track the atmosphere was absolutely buzzing! This is what Mates Racing is about, having a laugh with your buddies, riding an awesome track in the sin and all washed down with a couple of coldies! DREAMY.
Hattock has to be a firm favourite for both locals and holiday makers in the Portes du Soleil. Fast, Rooty and big jumps, what more do you want from a Downhill track? They say a picture is a thousand words so ill save myself a bit of writing and check out some of these bangers below. Courtesy of Sam Taylor and Joe Killen.
It was awesome to see some under 16's up there racing and enjoying themselves, massive shout out to Ronan Dunn who took out the win with a storming time of 02:37.60 which would have put him in 12th in the Mens! Followed by Yuval Kron and Adam Burson. Seriously impressive, keep up the good work lads!
Womens saw our smallest women field yet (where were you ladies?) this meant a head to head battle between Kat Klos and Rose Brombles, with Kat taking out the win.
Mens had a 45+ strong field of pinners, but in the end it was Aussie Old School DH legend Sean Mccarrol taking out the win by an impressive 6 seconds over visiting South African Ronan Kumper, closely followed by rapid Frenchie Hugo Latelin and Les Gets drunkest man Sam Bradford just 00:00.10 off the podium.
Big thanks to all the Morzine Summer Legends that come up with smalls on their face each week and keep the BonVibez flowing! These events are an absolute pleasure to hold thanks to you guys.
Also massive thanks to our sponsors for keeping these events free:
After a long summers day Europes biggest bikepark there is nothing better than washing it down with a few beers at Bike Morzine property Hotel Le Cottage, which hosts our epic prize giving. Followed by a rowdy afterparty at Cafe Chaud Morzine!
