25-year-old Belgian Pierre de Freudmont surprises with sixth place in WB Mountain Bike in Brazil | WB . mountain bike

Pierre de Freudmont managed to instantly mingle among the best riders in the first round of the Mountain Bike World Cup of the season, in Petropolis (Brazil). The win went to world champion Nino Schurter.

Pierre de Freudmont got a good starting position thanks to a solid performance in the short track on Friday. He was also able to hold himself well among the top players in the preliminary stage, sinking into the middle segment, but eventually moved up to sixth, his best ever World Cup result.

The win was dedicated to Nino Schurter, who equals Julian Absalon’s record of 33 World Cup victories. Schurter had to beat Maxime Marot in the sprint for this.

With the women, Pauline Ferrand-Privaux was not able to capitalize on her victory on the short track. She had to give in and pave the way for Rebecca McConnell. This is Australia’s first World Cup victory.
