From The Santa Cruz Syndicate:
The first World Cup of 2016 is in the books, and it was a wonderfully muddy, messy way to kick off the season! Peaty got some World Cup points, Minnar finished 14th, and Ratboy pulled off a top-10 finish with a 6th place result. Lourdes is quickly establishing itself as a first-class venue with a rough, challenging track. Conditions all week were wet, but the sun was shining for the finals. With legions of spectators streaming the hill was alive with the sounds of chain saws, bells and horns and could be heard miles away and fans were treated to amazing racing action.
