Vali Höll and Loïc Bruni held their nerve at the final UCI Mountain Bike World Cup downhill event of the season at Snowshoe to win their races and claim thrilling 2021 overall titles. Here is all you need to know:
- Austrian teenager Höll triumphed in Wednesday’s first Snowshoe race to boost her chances of the title in her first elite season, while Frenchman Bruni came second to inch closer to a second overall men’s title.
- On Saturday in West Virginia, Höll watched on as Swiss rider Emilie Siegenthaler signed off her professional career with a quick early time before Briton Tahnée Seagrave laid down her marker.
- She went fastest by a huge 16.748 seconds, which would be enough to land her in fourth spot at the end of the day, with German Nina Hoffman also able to lay down a second race run good enough for fifth.
