Riding Addiction Cairns World Cup Report

The Riding Addiction Team recently found some success in the Cairns World Cup in South Africa. The team gives a report of the event in their own words:

“The 2014 UCI World Cup has kicked off 3 weeks ago in South Africa. The team was really excited to start this new season. Myriam, Rémi, Cam, Thibaut and Gaëtan were motivated to have a good launch into this new season.

It’s always good to be back in South Africa, great atmosphere, wonderful landscapes, even if the track is not the most adored one : Everyone knew it would be one of the most physically demanding track of the season and this year track builders built some interesting new features to make it more technically. Adding this, dry and dusty conditions, it resulted a pretty tricky combo.

Myriam offered us the best surprise, usually not at her best on this track, she managed to get a really good 4th place. Cam was in the pace too with a promising 12th place, he had a clean run but admit with more confidence he could have been faster. Rémi had a really good top part split, which ranked him 6th, but he lost a lot in the pedaling section, he ended up 20th. Thibaut was further in the ranking with the 45th spot, disappointed with his run which missed a lot of rhythm. Gaëtan had a good come back in the top 80 with a 67th place, 1 month and half only after his collarbone surgery.”
