Matt Walker crashes out of Snowshoe World Cup

Matt Walker crashed out of the Snowshoe World Cup and suffered a broken hand and kneecap on a tough weekend for the Madison Saracen Factory Race Team. 

Walker went down in qualifying and was taken from the track, unable to complete his run. Before the incident, Matt was fourth in the overall series after five rounds and hoped to challenge for the podium over the final three races. 

Walker now travels home from America, to get his injuries fully assessed in the UK.

Jordan Williams also faced a tough weekend, crashing both in qualifying and his race run.

Painfully, Williams was four-seconds up at the halfway point of the track, showing that he had the pace for an extraordinary result, but a crash ended his hopes of victory.

Williams remains second overall in the series, but with just two races remaining has a 64-point gap to close.


Veronika Widmann was the only team rider to put down a clean run in tricky conditions, placing eighth. The result solidifies her eighth place in the overall standings and keeps her as a protected rider.  


The UCI Mountain Bike Downhill World Cup resumes on 5-6 August in Mont Sainte Anne, Canada for the penultimate round of the series.
