The man who won the DH World Cup Overall in 2018 - Amaury PIERRON - won the mens in front of other big names on the circuit.

This is his second win in 2019. He won at home at the Brioude DH Cup in early March.

This was a great start for the team before the season officially kicks off.

The riders will also have good knowledge of the Lousa race track as of course, it will be part of the DH World Cup next year!
