After four weeks between Round 3 and 4, the RockShox Trek Race Team had a heavy last couple of weeks with back-to-back races in Lenzerheide, Switzerland, and Vallnord, Andorra.
Vali Höll, Jamie Edmondson, and Tegan Cruz were all faced with different emotions, challenges, and outcomes during Round 4 and 5 of World Cup DH.
The cards dealt to the team at Lenzerheide, Switzerland was a perfect example of the unknown outcomes that come with racing. With a tough weekend of crashes, mechanicals, and frustrations – Vali still managed a spot on the podium in 5th place. With roughly 3-days to rest and recover, the team headed to Vallnord, Andorra for Round 5.
Vallnord’s track was loose and dry from practice leading into finals. The team pushed hard in qualifications and that carried over into race day for the young RockShox Trek Race Team. Vali was calculated, precise, and smooth on her race run which result in claiming her first World Cup win of the 2022 reason. Tegan also secured his first podium finish, laying it down for Junior Men in P3.
What an exciting weekend! Round 6 and 7 in North America are coming in hot! Stay tuned to @rockshox_trek_raceteam for more race action throughout the season.
