With little to no downtime between races, RockShox Trek Race Team athletes Vali Höll, Jamie Edmondson, and Tegan Cruz set their sights on Leogang, Austria, for Round 3 of World Cup DH.

The pressure was on for Vali, as she was crowned the 2022 Austrian National Champ the weekend prior. Having sustained a significant injury at Leogang during World Champs in 2020, followed by a crash in her 2021 race run, Vali was hungry for redemption.

The rain continued to fall throughout practice and into qualifications - making Leogang's wooded sections greasy and rutted. Vali and Tegan secured top 5 placements in their respective categories despite the conditions. Jaime went OTB and still managed a P51 in the Elite Men category.

After practicing and qualifying in thick mud, the sun decided to make an appearance on race day, drying out the track and making it almost unfamiliar. With no podiums, Leogang's unruly, fast, and difficult track got the best of Vali, Jamie, and Tegan, who all sustained crashes during their race runs.

The team has roughly four weeks until heading to Lenzerheide, Switzerland, for Round 4, July 10-12. Vali Höll and Tegan Cruz will be headed to Crankworx Innsbruck while Jamie Edmondson will racing Round 2 of World Enduro in Petzen. Follow @rockshox_trek_raceteam for more race action throughout the season.
