UCI DOWNHILL WORLD CUP 2021
ROUND 4 IN MARIBOR | SLOWENIEN
DONE AND DUSTED
After the last three World Cup races were held exclusively in heavy rain and in the deepest mud, this time in Maribor the riders had to deal with bone-dry track conditions and heat of up to 37°C at times. But the Schwalbe athletes defied even these extreme conditions and continued a strong season with numerous top results.
Magic Mary takes it all! Almost the entire podium races to success on our ultimate Gravity tire. Our Schwalbe athletes have been dominating the World Cup all season long. Another victory in Maribor went to the impressive Myriam Nicole, who also leads the overall World Cup. Except for 2nd place, the Schwalbe World Cup girls conquered everything, from 1st to 5th place. Hats off - great performances also from Camille Balanche, Monika Hrastnik and Tahnee Seagrave.

The men completed the successful trip to Slovenia with no less than 5 top ten finishes. First and foremost, Schwalbe athlete Thibaut Daprela showed another strong performance, capturing 2nd place in the race and thus securing his narrow lead in the overall World Cup, ahead of the day's winner and overall World Cup runner-up Loris Vergier. The surprise of the weekend was achieved by Schwalbe athlete Dan Slack, who achieved an extremely strong 10th place in only his 3rd World Cup in the Elite Men category. Congratulations!
