IXS European DH Cup #3 - Schladming


IXS European DH Cup #3 - Schladming

Some you win and some you…crash.

Schladming, a riders favorite, saw over 400 riders out of 27 nations at the start.Unfortunately the weather in the Austrian Alps played a big role, which made for some unpredictable race result.

After Johannes Fischbachs wins the first 2 races of the IXS EDC series expectations were high.
Although the tricky conditions during Saturdays qualifying took the best of Johannes, he crashed in sight of the finish line, he still brought home a strong 2nd place. Unfortunately Sundays Finals didn’t bring what Fischi and the Team had hoped for. Just before the Elite Super Finale a thunderstorm with heavy rain role in, and turned to track into a wild river. Johannes Fischbach attacked the track just a little to aggressive and crashed in the 2nd turn:
“The Schladming track is so much fun to ride! I challenged myself to ride on the edge. 
Unfortunately i went over this edge in my qualifying and finale run, which resulted in some crashes. Some you win and some you crash ;)”
Our other Radon Magura Factory Team rider, Faustin Figaret, was ill with a cold all weekend. At the end he brought home a respectable 13th place. Results wise not the best weekend for the team, but the riders proved the speed is there!
