This made the whole last stage pretty difficult for me. To bad it good have been a clean sweep :). I am so happy how the new Radon Slide 140 turned out, can’t wait for the next race”
James Shirley, had a solid start of the season. In a strong field with over 600 riders he managed to finish as lucky number 13.James Shirley: 13th Place“I felt fast in places, but i also had an over the bars, an off course and a stop in the rock garden. Not a clean day. However, the time gap to the podium wasn’t huge. It was a decent start of the season”.
