Holly comes third in the Swiss Provincial and now heads to Round 1 of the World Cup

Unofficially we have heard that Holly managed a very respectable 3rd in her Swiss Provincial last weekend. If you’re not aware the Swiss dominate the World XCO mountain biking scene, I guess it’s something to do with those huge mountains and thin air!

This weekend Holly has headed to Albstadt, Germany, with the Australian XC team for Round 1 of the UCI MTB World Cup. Obviously the WC is as high as you can go. The Albstadt course will be a very challenging course.

If you want to get an idea of what the WC at Albstadt is all about jump on to one of our great sponsor’s website - Red Bull. You will also get some classic commentary like, “his tyre exploded like a bratwurst”, on the Cross Country Eliminator (XCE) which was held yesterday. Tonight Red Bull will be streaming the Cross Country Olympic (XCO) for the Elite Men and Women. Holly’s results in the U19 Women will be posted on the following link.

NEMTB, New England and Australia are very proud of you Holly! Lap up the experience and well done for all your hard work.
