Vali Höll, Jamie Edmondson, and Tegan Cruz arrived in Fort William, Scotland, for Round 2 of the World Cup DH racing, May 21-22. While the crew spent roughly two months apart between races, it was like nothing changed. It was back to scouting lines, riding hard, resting harder, and working on fine-tuning their race craft.
If there was a race on the circuit that Jamie Edmondson felt most at home, Ft. Bill mimicked the exposed and slippery rock slabs that he grew up riding. Inevitably, anytime a racer is in their home county, let alone with friends and family in attendance, there is an urge to push harder and put down the best results possible.
Fort William was no joke, and the crew gave it their all despite unforeseen challenges thrown at them. With roughly two weeks until Round 3 in Leogang, Austria, the squad will have time to recover and refocus. See you in Austria, June 10-12!
