a one-off competition that would test the riders and offer a chance to ride fresh tracks. The event enforced very strict social distancing and did not invite spectators.
From the outset, Loris looked strong throughout practice and maintained his positive attitude throughout the event.
“It was the best training and practice for World Champs because the track is 50% new for the World Championships and this track was almost brand new, which made it a good test to get a feel on a new track and set up my bike for it, said Vergier. I had two good runs and won the whole thing, so it was a good weekend!”
Next up, the world’s best mountain bike athletes will meet at the World Championships in Leogang, Austria October 9-11. In the meantime, Vergier will take some time to practice and have a little downtime.
“Now it’s time to train a little bit more and have a couple of days at home, while focusing on being healthy and fast for World Champs,” said Vergier. I can’t wait to have a good ride on the Leogang track and try to get a good result.
Mountain Bike Action is a monthly magazine devoted to all things mountain biking (yes, that’s 12 times a year because we never take a month off of mountain biking). It has been around since 1986 and we’re still having fun.
