Special guest Pedro Burns joining Charlie for the outing

Training done, time to race

That's one way to warm up

Pedro make the move over to the big bike nicely, coming in at 19th

It’s really good to feel the intensity of that one short run of downhill! Grateful for been here racing some DH with these fast guys in slippery trails! Definitely good learning experience for me! Ended up 19th and really looking forward for race Worlds with the Chilean colors next weekend.

Chuck was keen to make a statement

And a statement was made with a strong third place

Solid weekend getting back to the races. After so much time off, it’s quite refreshing to be back with the team and into the race process again. I’m glad we got to race this weekend, I felt like it was a very productive warm up weekend for world champs. Overall, the weekend was super proactive; we got to dial in the race routine before Worlds, and to put down a solid race run was the finishing top off!

Charlie will take the confidence into next weekend's World Champs, in Leogang

Cheers Chuck!

Be sure to keep up with the team as they head to Leogang, Ausria for World Champs.
