BLENKI AND BROOK BACK UP YESTERDAY'S THREATS IN CHAMPERY

Round four of the UCI DH World Cup is in the bag and the Kiwis continued with a strong presence in Champery on the super steep and slippery track. Gee Atherton took the win followed by Greg Minnaar in second, Brendon Fairclough in third and Sam Blenkinsop landing himself on the podium in fourth place (not quite where he wanted). Brook MacDonald unloaded a scorcher of a run to narrowly miss out on fifth place by 2.2 seconds and Alexandra's Matt Scoles finished inside the top 30 in 28th place, in front of crowd pleaser Cedric Gracia. I coped a little better on the track today with my camera, but I won't be giving up my day job too soon. Hopefully next week in Val Di Sole I won't be battling the weather and will be able to bring a little more quality. Anyway here is today's non stolen gallery, results and captions to follow soon. (The Internet is being lame, there were supposed to be a few more photos but they won't load.)
