Rounds 5 and 6 of the UEC European League series were held in Grandson (Switserland).
Our European Factory Team was almost complete, only Marie Hossay was absent due to an injury.
The Team had some good results with most riders making it to the mains on both days.
Rune Deburchgraeve has been consistent making every main in this year’s series. He took 4th place on Saturday and on Sunday he won the Main event. His first international victory puts him in 3rd place of the Boys 13/14 ranking. Congrats Rune!
Another rider that was longing for his first big international win this year was Kristens Krigers. The Latvian Junior was the man to beat this weekend with some serious pull on the first straight. He took the win and moves into first place of the Junior Men ranking.
In Elite Women, Aneta Hladikova made it to the Main on Saturday with some technical riding. She was in position for a podium place, but got the door shut in turn 2 and had to settle for 6th. In Sunday’s race, she just missed the transfer spot to the main, after she missed the gate in the semi.
Edžus Treimanis already showed his good shape the last few weeks. He doubled in the Elite Men Category. These 2 victories put him in the lead of the Elite Men Ranking.
With these fine results, Thrill Factory Europe moves into the lead of the European BMX League Ranking.
Next stop Klazienaveen (NL) in 2 weeks.
