We are here in Méribel, France, for the final world cup of the season. The track here is new to the world cup circuit and it is steep, fast and has a lot of roots.
Robin and Niklas had an okay practice session this morning, but Marcus had a freak accident on his last run where a pole hit his thumb. After a few hours with the medics the verdict was two fractures in his right thumb. He will not race this weekend, and will use this time to rest up and try to come back strong for the World Championchips in two weeks time.
Robin was our first man of the start, he had a pretty good run according to the clock but not according to Robin. He put in a 33rd place run, with things to improve on which is a good position to be in for tomorrow.
Niklas was next, he had an okay run to finish in 68th place. He has a few things to dial in for tomorrow, but was satisfied to qualify on a type of track he usually doesn't do well on.
So tomorrow is the finals, and as usual you can watch the race live on redbull.com/bike.
Check back after the race for a final report, it might come a bit later than usual as we will start the drive home to Sweden directly after the race.
