The action continued in Leogang, Austria, one week after the World Cup held there last weekend. The second round of the iXS European Downhill Cup drew 403 participants from 25 countries to compete on the 2.3km World Cup course with 480m of elevation drop.

Unlike for the World Cup, the weather was dry and conditions were more favorable. About half of the World Cup peloton had stayed in town for the race.

A few riders made good use of the seeding run to show their ambitions to win, and thus Nick Beer (Scott 11) moved into first position with a full four-second advantage. Justin Leov (Trek World Racing) qualified second, followed by Shaun O'Connor (Kenda Playbiker) and Marcus Klausmann (Ghost International).

For Sunday's final, even the course's moistest forest sections had dried up, so the speeds picked up and it was obvious that the times clocked in the seeding run would not hold. Brook MacDonald (MS Evil Racing) made that clear right from the start.

As he had faced some problems in his seeding run, he had to start very early in the men's elite category, and he posted a time that would have put him in second a day earlier. Thus he made himself comfortable in the hotseat and enjoyed the race from that position, finishing in a fine fifth position in the end.

The first rider to beat his time was Steve Smith (MS Evil Racing), who was only surpassed by Leov. Although Beer was quicker than the day before, he could not do better than third, but seen the strong competition that result is even more valuable, and it also moved him into the lead in the series' overall standings.

In the women's elite category, there was Tracy Moseley (Trek World Racing) and then there were the others. She literally outclassed her 21 opponents by putting an enormous 23 seconds between her and the next-placed riders Martina Brühlmann (iXS/YETI) and Miriam Ruchti (dr-gravity union). This made the double perfect for the Trek World Racing team led by Martin Whiteley.

The master's race was won by Wilfred van de Haterd (NOX Cycles), with Heinz Hostettler ( and Marcel Waldmann (DT Swiss) filling the other podium spots.

The winner of the under 17 race was Antoine Bagnoud (Crans Montana Racing), who was faster than second-placed Matthew Scott and Aram Raoof (RMF FM-PEPSI MAX) in third.
