After a season with some of the closest racing we’ve ever witnessed, the final UCI World Cup race went down at Snowshoe, West Virginia. It was the first World Cup race to happen on US soil since 2015, and the local racers took full home field advantage, with top results from many of the American racers. Just like the rest of the season, the final few runs were absolute nail biters, with Frenchmen Loic Bruni and Amaury Pierron in head-to-head battles for the overall season title. In the end, Danny Hart usurped both to take the race win, leaving Loic to take his first overall title. U.S.-based racer Charlie Harrison took third.
The women’s race was no less exciting, with more close standings for the overall title. Coming off an already stellar season, Marine Cabirou took the win, beating out returning champion Myriam Nicole and Veronika Widmann. Tracey Hannah was able to hold onto her overall title.
