It's that time of the year, the DH World Cup crosses the pond and heads for some racing in North America starting with Snowshoe, West Viriginia in the US. Can standings leader Amaury bounce back from the gnarly pre-race run slam from Vallnord and will Titi let loose on US soil? Myriam looked so dialled in Andorra before her slam but still managing to land a P7 for damage control. One man who will be looking to keep his run of form is Tristan Lemire who managed to bag a podium at Vallnord as his hot streak continues.
Across the season we’ll be running through each rider and checking out their Filthy Product Picks…Enjoy!
The teams foreigner, hailing from Quebec, Canada. We know, its French speaking, but it still counts so shut it! Tristan was on a role at the end of 2021 with three finishes in the top 5 in the Junior category of the world cups. But, he did not have the best start to 2022 taking a spiral fracture to his humerus requiring surgery after getting caught up in a tree - you can read more about that over on Pinkbike. Opting to sit out the teams pre-season training camps, it's been epic to see his return to form in 2022.
