The Mountain Bike World Cup descended onto Aonach Moor this weekend for the 2nd round. The track is famous for it's physical and mental toughness, being 5 minutes in length for the Downhill, 1 minute of that being a lung busting pedal, before jumping into the natural amphitheatre to the finish line.

 

Our U.K riders once again put on a top performance, especially the Female athletes, Jess Stone and Manon Carpenter. Manon, being only 17! Placed 8th at her second world cup ever..... One to watch for the future! Jess picked up her best result yet with an 11th place finish on her new team, Trek Gravity Girls.

BikeRadar stopped by the booth and had this to say about Five Ten®: "FiveTens are still the shoe for flat pedal riders, and they had their latest footwear on show, including two prototype clipless pedal compatible models, the Minnaar and the more stealthy-looking Hellcat. It sounds like a new flat pedal shoe could also be in the pipeline, which would slot in behind the heavy-duty Impact downhill model and more basic Freerider designs. For more casual use, there are also the new Line King (pictured below) and Spitfire models. A FiveTen downhill/freeride jersey will be available soon."
