Last weekend, Monty’s ProRACE team traveled to Vöcklabruck, Austria to take part in the second edition of the Uci Trials World Cup. With batteries fully charged after Aalter, they set their objectives on continuing to score points to reach the final victory.
MANON BASSEVILLE 2nd POSITION:
“The obstacles were not easy, but not impossible. I had excellent feelings about the bicycle, always giving me confidence and strength. By linking the areas without too much pressure I could avoid making serious mistakes. Thanks to this, before the end of the last zone, I realized I was at the head of the race, which was a surprise!”
“This result has allowed me to close the event knowing the scores of my rivals and to be able to move forward. Now, with my eyes fixed on Brittany, I will defend the national title with all of my strength!!”
THOMAS PECHHACKER 2nd POSITION:
The World Cup in Vöcklabruck started very well and ended even better. When I arrived, the pressure of the media was huge, but I tried not to let it affect me and focus only on my career. At the beginning of the semifinal I was a bit nervous and my legs were shaking during the first sections. Later I found myself more relaxed and started to really enjoy the competition. Before I could realize it, I was already on the 3rd place, which was amazing.
I have been very close to my first win in the World Cup and I am very happy with this second place!
IRENE CAMINOS 4th POSITION:
“The sensations on the bike have been very good, I am very happy to have reached the final and even more to have finished fourth!”
ION AREITIO 7th POSITION:
“This time we were left out, seventh place. A very good first lap in which we were in the final. A second in which I had a small downturn and I made a mistake that cost me the final. Even so, the good sensations of the first round still remain. Now we have to keep working so that next time we are a 100% ready!”
“Austria has been my first World Cup this year. I really liked the level of the sections in Vöcklabruck. After the first lap, I had 7 points and was in seventh place, close to my goal that was the final in the second round I have added 6 points, which has put me in tenth place. I am very pleased with my participation and the feelings on the bike. I would like to congratulate the rest of Monty’s riders, who have done great.
LUCIEN LEISER 4th POSITION:
“In the semifinals I had a good test, I made only 5 and all the rest of the race in 0. The final sections were very hard, I made 5 in each of them and finished in the fourth place. It’s a good result, but I’m not satisfied with my race, I think I could have finished second, but that’s the way sports are, it doesn’t always go our way. Next competition: Les Menuires in 3 weeks!”
We are really proud of the successes of our ProRACE team, proud and happy to see them enjoy so much. But it is not over yet, there are many tests on the calendar and we must keep fighting.
