The perfect weekend for David Trummer
It won’t get any better than this: 2 weeks ago Blue Tomato team rider David Trummer won the race in Les Deux Alpes and ended it on top of the podium. But that’s not enough – with this first place, he is now ranked third in the European overall world cup!

At first it didn’t seem like there would be a happy end. The training got cancelled after thunderstorms and heavy rain and so there was just Saturday morning left to get to know the unknown racetrack as the qualification took place in the afternoon. Rain hit the area again and David literally got washed away. But due to his “protected status” he had a safe place for the finals on Sunday.
But not only David participated in the race and had to deal with the tough weather conditions – his Blue Tomato team colleague Boris Tetzlaff shows you in his POV run how rough the race in Les Deux Alpes was:
Sunday, Finals day: David was the third one to race down the French Alps and was able to secure the Hot Seat from the early start. Even though he made some small mistakes it was a great run and he remained on the Hot Seat until the end of the day.

The next event David will participate in is the Downhill world cup in Mount-Sainte-Anne in Canada, in which he landed the 50th place last year. But not only we know that he feels really comfortable with his bike at the moment, also David raised his own expectations. With the self-confidence he gained through the iXs EDC success he will definitely reach a better position than last year.
All that’s left to say is: GOOD LUCK DAVID!
