With main rival Andrew Crimmins finishing 6th Laurie gained a sufficient points advantage to secure the 2015 World Cup Downhill for Junior Men, with one round remaining. This is a great achievement for the young rider from Bristol who has continued to grow and learn throughout his junior career and caps off a 5 race winning streak that started at the iXS Cup in Schladming.

Laurie said: “When Martin told me I’d won the overall I couldn’t actually believe what I was hearing, I mean I only just got the leader jersey back last week so it took some time to sink in. Even when I crossed the line in the race I was afraid it may not be enough for the win. I thought my first sector went really well and that gave me some confidence for the rest of the run, but it turns out my 2nd sector was the strongest. It’s a massively good feeling to go to Italy for the final round in Val Di Sole without any pressure for the series and just enjoy the race. I’m really proud of this title and want to thank my family, team and sponsors for all their support these past 2 seasons.”
