Goldstone & Wallace Podium at The DH World Cup in France
Les Gets, France (July 3, 2021) — Two Canadians finished among the top-5 at the third round of the Downhill World Cup on Saturday in Les Gets, France. After placing second at his first-ever DH World Cup in Leogang, Austria, 17-year-old Jackson Goldstone (Miranda Factory Team) stood at the top of the podium this time, taking gold in the Junior men’s downhill final.
Goldstone, who initially qualified second, shaved 14 seconds off his qualifying time to finish with a time of 3:26.950, almost two seconds ahead of silver medalist Jordan Williams of Great Britain. “I had the run of my life today,” said Goldstone. “[It] was an amazing week all around, and I’m stoked that the rain held off and we had a dry track.”
On the Elite side, veteran Mark Wallace (Canyon Collective Factory Team), finished 5th in the Elite men’s downhill final. Wallace has earned several podium finishes throughout his career, including a 4th place at the DH World Championships in 2020.
World Cup racing continues on Sunday for cross-country athletes of all categories. Live races will be available on RedBull TV.
