PEATY WINS LISBON - TRACE GETS 3RD
Even better! Lopesy comes in second.
What a weekend and what a race! A huge crowd lined the streets 3 to 4 deep as world class riders took to the streets of the Lisbon’s narrow and cobbled old town streets.
This event has been going for the past four years and each year it gets bigger and better. This year 60 men and 10 women of the worlds best mountain bikers were invited to race in a timed down hill through the historic streets of Lisbon, with live TV and UCI points on offer this was going to be a very exciting race!
Tracy Moseley, Kona Clarks UK No 1, rode the race for the first time against Anne-Caroline Chausson (FRA), Marielle Saner (SUI) so it was going to be tough.
Up against the likes of Brian Lopes, Cedric Gracia and Mike King, Peaty was going to have to go some.
Steve is on song at the moment and took the win. Tracy wasn’t quite at her best but got a creditable third. Final Results:
1st – Steve Peat
