The lunacy that was the Saas Fee Glacier Bike Downhill race has been and gone and like lambs to the slaughter our boys did us proud.
After a series of crashes and mishaps, Neil Donoghue (Team MBUK / Santa Cruz) placed 2nd with Wardell (GT Bikes) and Akrigg (Mongoose in his first ever DH race!) in 12th and 13th places.
With such an unpredictable surface and little experience in these conditions, the race was really a lottery for the top places. Nick Larsen said the sight of the mass starting line of 130 competitors dropping 8.5km down a 3500 metre mountain was one of the craziest things he’d seen.
We’ll have more on this in an up-and-coming issue of MBUK
