Gates Nicolai Team in South Africa!

April 23, 2009

A couple of updates at the Gates Nicolai Team’s web diary!

The 10th of April was Day 1 of the 2009 World Cup Downhill season opener in Pietermaritzburg,  South Africa. Gates Nicolai Team rider Joris Bigoni was there to compete in the Men’s Elite!

A week before that, Joris had already made the trip down to South Africa with Hoshi (i.e. Nicolai’s bad-ass Photographer/Art Director) to compete in the South African Nationals which was essentially on the same course. A number of World Cup downhillers also competed in the Nationals to get warmed up to the track and put in some extra training time before the season opener.

Okay well back to the Word Cup Downhill! Joris would go on to qualify on Saturday in 38th position in the Men’s Elite. On Sunday he placed a very respectable 33rd. Way to go Joris!
