Nissan UCI MTB World Cup Round 3

Santa Cruz Syndicate’s Steve Peat (teammate of local hero Greg Minnaar) has finally beaten French rider Nicolas Vouilloz’s record with his 17th career victory!

At the downhill event in the Nissan UCI Mountain Bike World Cup third round, in Vallnord, Andorra – MTB history was made when Peat took victory only two-hundredths of a second ahead of current world champion, Animal-Commencal’s Gee Atherton.

In the women’s event, Maxxis-Rocky Mountain’s Sabrina Jonnier took her second consecutive downhill World Cup win, and overtook Tracy Moseley (Trek World Racing) for the overall lead in the women’s series.

Not taking anything away from the other winners, but I think this weekend definitely belonged to Steve Peat, who broke a remarkable record. Congratulations from everyone here at MTB Shorts!
