Burgtec rider Book Macdonald was showing some ridiculous pace at the second round of the UCI downhill world cup.
He qualified 4th fastest keeping his momentum from his 2nd place result at Round 1 Fort William.
All week people were commenting on how fast the flying Kiwi was looking.
But unfortunately on finals day was unable to capitalise on his speed and just couldn’t keep it rubber side down. Eventually finishing in 24th. Had he of stayed on it was most likely a podium place run but that’s racing folks.
We look forward to watching him at Andorra for the 3rd round of the World Cup.
