Pivot Cycles had their World Cup gravity team, Emilie Siegenthaler, Bernard Kerr, and Eliot Jackson, at Sea Otter this year. We swung by the Pivot booth, got a chance to chat with them, and snapped a few pictures from the event.
This was Emilie Siegenthaler’s first time at Sea Otter and she was excited to be here. The sunny weather had many athletes happy and in good spirits. Sea Otter gravity events are often about having a good time and Emilie enjoyed her time on the courses. She ended up 3rd in dual slalom and 4th in the downhill.
Bernard Kerr and Eliot Jackson were also in attendance. Eliot had a crash during the first world cup and wasn’t riding at Sea Otter. He plans to be back for Ft. William so keep an eye out for him there.
Eliot’s crash is at 36s – Lourdes World Cup.
Eliot knows how to throw great whips and scrubs. Be on the lookout for this guy if you get to a whip-off event in Crankworx. Eliot isn’t all style though and he’s posted some great results at Crankworx Rotorua this year (2nd – Downhill) and was on pace to do well at Lourdes, France before he crashed.
Bernard Kerr is the third member of the Pivot gravity team and he’s been representing Pivot for awhile now. He’s got some great video edits with them online so be sure to check them out. Bernard ended up claiming 3rd in the dual slalom.
Bernard is also well versed in the whips and scrubs mechanics as well. He was one of the best ones throwing them during the Sea Otter downhill practice onboard his Pivot Mach6.
Be sure to tune into the next World Cup race at Fort William to see the Pivot Cycles team in action if you’re not headed to Port Angeles this weekend where they’re planning to be.
