Tahnée Seagrave places Second at World Cup


The Downhill-Worldcup season has started with a promising outcome for Tahnée Seagrave. The Ergon Factory Rider managed to win herself an excellent second place at the race in Lourdes.

The 21-year-old Briton was able to steadily achieve solid results in her 2015 races and also in this year’s 2016 World-Cup kickoff in Lourdes. No wonder then that she managed to extend this success in this year’s kick-off by running in a great second place and Tahnée using our GE1-Grips, missed the win of her first Worldcup by seconds. Not even a fall during her qualification race could stop her from scoring best time and thereby leaving behind her opponents Rachel Atherton and Manon Carpenter.

On account of her victory in the Qualifying, Tahnee was left the privilege to start off last. Right before her own turn, World-Champion Rachel Atherton had done a clean round, reaching the finish line with a 10-seconds advantage to second-placed Carpenter.

During her race, the tables had turned for Tahnée and the track raised quite some difficulties for her. Although she managed to do a proper run, Seagrave was not able to make up the time set of Atherton and only reached the finish line with a deficit of 4,472 seconds to the leading World Champion. Still, it is an excellent result for our young British rider, who for sure will provide some action during the current season by further challenging her compatriot Rachel Atherton.
