Propain Dirt Sixpack Mont-Sainte-Anne Race Video

Dirt Sixpack Team Road Manager Ben Siri reports from MSA:
For our latest adventure, the team trickled into Mont-Saint-Anne. After many lengthy delays in various airports, this trip’s special feature aside from being on a new continent included the welcome return of Mechanic, Louis Gray, and the addition of local media man Mathieu Grandmaitre (AKA Grandmaster Flash).

The team was complete, the bikes were ready and the riders were aching to get the track walk started to see the rocky adventure that was to follow. The track this year, characteristically, was its usual rock dropping, death gripping track that everyone has come to love with the addition of the new Tarzan section.

The weather was to be a strong factor on Thursday practice as the dense fog moved in on the mountain for Georges practice session, as it seemed to lift it was replaced by a monumental deluge which caused the track to be closed due to lightning risks and 'A' practice was cut short only to be re-opened for timed training on a track that resembled Peanut Butter according to our newly crowned Austrian National champ David.

Qualifying day was the best one the team has had this season to date with all 4 boys qualifying, David 18th , Phil 19th in the elites, Henry 3rd and George 11th in juniors, the tempo had been set and the positives vibes in the pits could be felt by the whole team.

George was first to set off on race day and hit a rock which bent his brake rotor and damaged the derailleur after just a few hundred meters, he somehow managed to catch 4 racers on his way to the finish with a damaged bike.

Henry was left wanting more from his run as he knew he could have been faster but was still on his 4th podium in a row with 3rd place.

Philip was next to come down and landed himself on the hot seat for a while but had a big scare up the track and was happy to finish in 20th.

David felt he was too untidy at the top and left it too late to pull it back even though he was one of the fastest all day through the rock section, he finished 34th, our favorite Austrian was visibly disappointed at himself but ready for the next challenge of La Bresse. The racing wasn’t finished yet though as a multi team go karting event was to Follow with racers and staff from Trek, Specialized, Canyon and Propain Dirt Sixpack taking it to the track.

The day’s winner Bruni was fast and leading after the first lap until the duo of George and road manager Ben Siri took the lead before being caught by Trummer and Henry. End Finish was a

Propain 1-2-3-4 with Trummer taking the win.
