One run against the clock and the fastest down the mountain is World Champion. The 2015 UCI Mountain Bike DH World Championships in Vallnord, Andorra are complete after a spectacular race under blue skies and fair conditions for all riders. The track dried out a lot but there were still slick, tricky wet sections in the woods that meant a clean run was never a guarantee.

Race Notes

  • LOOK AT THE TIME! Loic Bruni had the run of his life. Dancing and floating down without a mistake, Loic earned a gold medal and the rainbow stripes in 2015 with a 4:19! "I didn't believe it was possible, but it's possible," Loic said in a post-race interview.
  • Greg Minnaar, experience and poise paid off. He attacked everywhere he could and took the hot seat with 6 riders remaining. He crossed the line, saw his time and stage-dived into the crowd because he knew it was a good one utimately earning silver.
  • Ratty had such a lazy-looking run, but it was solid and looked error-free for a bronze medal.
  • Aaron Gwin went down in the trees.
  • Troy Brosnan was on a scorcher and suffered a crash.
  • Mike Jones had a smoker of a run and was one of the first to show just how wild a rider had to be to challenge the top spot. Very few could touch his performance at the bottom as riders were up at the first and second split, but lost time through the steep, bottom portion. We saw it with Fearon, Hart, Marcelo and others.
  • 2014 World Champ, Gee Atherton had a random pedal clip on a non-threatening part of the course.
  • Loris Vergier snapped a chain out of the gate. He did not "Gwin" it unfortunately. #gutted
  • Claudio read some guy's marriage proposal on the webcast. Warner didn't even acknowledge, lol. About 6 riders later there was an update that she said yes. #phew
  • Mick Hannah was an early run and he NAILED it with a 4:29. He kept the hot seat warm for a while.
  • Bernat Guardia goes out in style with a clean run for his last race of his career. #YEW
  • Sam Hill dropped in extremely early due to his current UCI ranking. Up at split 1, then suffered a crash into the catch netting and it was over.
  • German rider, Christian Textor drops in and Warner says, "I wonder what this kid can do on an iPhone." We knew gonna be a fun webcast!
  • It was rad that Red Bull / UCI showed the entire field on the webcast.
  • Even with our 4:45am wake up call, we missed the Elite Women's race, but to no surprise Rachel Atherton walked away with gold and a combo World Cup / World Champs double victory season. She was fastest through both splits, proving consistency paid off. Well done, Rachel! Manon Carpenter and Tracey Hannah rounded out 2nd and 3rd.
  • Myriam Nicole finished last. She was 3rd at the first split.
  • Laurie Greenland takes the Junior victory with a time 17-seconds faster than Greg Minnaar's seeding run, proving the course was much quicker.
  • Martin Maes, enduro specialist, 2nd place in Junior.
