6th in Leogang, Austria


TEAM NORCO INTL. - 2014 WORLD CUP #4 LEOGANG, AUSTRIA

Leogang, AUT - JUNE 15, 2014 - Round #4 of the UCI World cup took place under sunny skies last weekend in the mountains of Austria. With some changes to the course this year, and a few rain showers early in the week roughing up the terrain, Leogang Bike park proved worthy to host 340 riders an exciting World Cup event.

For Team Norco Intl, things were going well all week with all members working together and having fun, the bikes performing amazingly, and everything at base camp running like clockwork. As far as racing, times were so close in the final that little mistakes were the difference between 15th and 40th, as both Lorenzo and Bryn found out on the weekend. Isak had still been feeling the effects from his concussion the week before, and took another spill early on in practice adding insult to injury. Jill Kintner had consistency and put a run together to finish 6th, which keeps her striving for podiums.

JILL KINTNER - 6th

“Leogang has been a really good venue for me over the years. From the first turn on, it's just huge braking bumps and holes into sweet ruts, a few switchbacks, rock gardens, high speed jump sections, steep woods with roots, etc. The ground was rolling so fast for finals, that I probably braked in a few more places than I should have, trying to hold it together.  My run was decent and I was in a good state of mind, just kicking myself now for riding the bottom too slow. The podium is where I want to be, so l will do everything I can to find more speed for the next few rounds. Overall, I am happy and having a lot of fun racing with the best."
