One of the highlights of BikeRadar Live last weekend was seeing the world’s top pro mountain bikers go head to head in the Mountain Biking UK Eliminator dual slalom.
After qualifying on Saturday afternoon, the finals were a floodlit affair. The big crowd was treated to a thrilling series of races as one by one, the field was whittled down to just four riders.
In the end, the UK’s Gee Atherton (Animal Commencal) edged out American Brian Lopes (Ibis) in a nail biter, winning both his final runs to the huge approval of the crowd. In the small final, Frenchman Romain Saladini (Sunn) was too good for the UK’s Scott Beaumont (Rocky Mountain).
