Team MBUK/Santa Cruz 1st at Vigo DH

Sunday, May 13, 2007 11.00pm
Marc Beaumont and Gee Atherton bring it home for the Brits

It was fiesta time in Spain this weekend at the Vigo round of the UCI World cup. The Brits abroad did us proud with a storming win by our very own Marc Beaumount. And it didn't stop with Marc's inspired performance, Tracy Moseley came second in the women's DH and the top ten of the men's race was littered with our riders.
