The results are in from Lourdes. The men had quite the challenge as the rain and heavy winds swept in just as the top seeded riders started their runs. The 29ers will have to wait for another day to take the podium!
The slippery conditions due to the rain and wind upset many of the top riders. Alexandre Fayolle took his first World Cup win and put down a solid race run. Round #2 at Fort William will be quite interesting given the shake-up that occurred during this round.
