4X ProTour Round 5 – Malmedy, Belgium
Saturday 5th September sees the 4X ProTour move to Malmedy in Belgium for Round 5 of the 2015 Series. Malmedy will host the 2015 4X ProTour finals after 4 rounds previously that have had 4 different winners in the men’s and so much drama in the women’s.
This 4X ProTour has already visited Winterberg, Fort William, Szczawno ZdrojVal and Jablonec and now the World’s finest riders will race in Belgium at this great bikepark.
The track in Malmedy will offer a new challenge to our riders. With the track being the longest in the circuit, it is rough, loose and steep. It does not have the biggest jumps but it will be high speed and there will be a lot of passing, that’s guaranteed.
In the women’s, Helene Fruhwirth has already sealed the title up but the battle is still close with 4 women battling for 2nd overall. Michaela Berakova, Eva Brauer and Nat Piwowarczyk have less than 90 points separating them with 250 up for grabs. With confirmation already that all the top riders from Belgium, Germany and Britain, the women’s racing will be amazing all weekend.
In the men’s, the battle is still very much on for the overall title. With the best 4 rounds from 5 counting towards the overall, every rider will have to drop their worst result which makes things very interesting. Quentin Derbier is currently on top of the standings ahead of Scott Beaumont, Hannes Slavik and Simon Waldburger. With Beaumont missing the last round in Jablonec, he has a zero point round to drop and that makes the racing on Saturday really interesting.
For sure it will be action packed on Saturday so if you are in the vicinity of Malmedy, we can guarantee the fireworks will be flying.
