Gallery: Downhill team takes on Andorra

An up and down weekend for the two person squad

Ask many to find Andorra on the map and you could be met with confusion. Those who know Andorra however are well versed in its exceptional beauty. High in the Pyrenees, this small nation of 76,000 swelled to accommodate the first double round (both DH and XC) of the 2019 UCI World Cup.

It was an up and down affair for the DH squad, with excellent qualifying times not finding themsleves in the race runs. Either way, a great time was had, and the images speak for themselves. All images from Ross Bell and Matthew Delorme.

Simply incredible views

With both XC and DH in town for racing, the setup is in full force

RC cars? Pretty much every day.

Track walk always providing a sweet view

Full crew finding the lines

The course in Andorra is one of the most dramatic, with nearly 800 meters of drop

That way seems legit

Time to clean the gear and get to riding

Triple checked, ready to ride

Practice meant seeing the course at full speed...

...and at no speed

The team qualified well with both inside the top 25

Race day

Full flex

Time to go!

Reece would end up coming in 46th

A flat would cost Kade a shot at a solid result

A great time had by the team, and now they turn their full attention to Les Gets, where they hope to turn their luck around!
