Posted by jo-2, August 13, 2019

With only one World Cup left Tracey Hannah is in the box seat to claim the overall downhill World Series title after her second place at the Lenzerheide, Switzerland round over the weekend.

Hannah (Polygon UR), is 150 points clear of her biggest rival Marine Cabirou (Scott Downhill Factory) after the Frenchwoman took the top spot on the podium from the Australian by +0.2 seconds.

Troy Brosnan was back on the podium in fourth place after missing out on a spot on the steps last weekend at Val di Sole.

Brosnan still sits in third place in the overall standings behind Loic Bruni (Specialized Gravity), while Kye A’Hern (Canyon Factory Downhill Team) has moved into second overall after a fifth place finish at last years world championship venue.

It was also Dean Lucas’ (Scott Downhill Factory) best result of the season with a seventh place behind winner Amaury Pierron (Commencal/Vallnord).

In the cross-country race on Sunday Rebecca McConnell (PMR Team) produced another storming top 10 placing her fifth of the season at Lenzerheide on Sunday.

The multiple Australian champion finished one position shy off the podium in sixth and has now moved into fifth place overall ahead of the UCI MTB World Championships in Mont Sainte Anne in two weeks time.

A poor start meant Daniel McConnell (PMR Team) had to fight his way through the back of the pack to end up in 46th place while Cameron Ivory recorded his best World Cup result this season in 51st.

Matt Dinham bettered his plate number to be 42nd while Cameron Wright (Giant Factory Off-Road Team) was a further four places back.
