Watch how Loic Bruni won his third UCI MTB World Championship title in Lenzerheide, Switzerland.
There is perhaps no better place for MTB racing than the Swiss Alps. Lenzerheide hosts the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup tour for the third time, with both DH and XCO races contested in the Men’s and Women’s divisions.
The downhill season signed-off in style at the 2018 UCI DH World Championships.
The steep, short and intense track at the 2018 UCI DH world Championships in Lenzerheide, Switzerland, packed everything a Worlds track needs into three minutes, with plenty of roots, rocks and turns. A perfect day in the mountains greeted the fans who’d turned out in their droves to watch the races for the coveted world champion’s rainbow jersey and place in mountain bike history.
Defending 2017 World Champion Loïc Bruni had a mixed World Cup season, but you don’t win the World Championship twice by luck and the Frenchman attacked the course on his run. He was on par with the split times of Maes as he came down the hill, and when he crossed the finish line his time was 0.213 seconds faster than Maes. We had a new race leader after Martin Maes lead most of the race. Aaron Gwin and Brook MacDonald weren’t able to take the first place from Loic Bruni, and Danny Hart ended up coming third. This means a third UCI MTB World Championship win for the French Loic Bruni.
