Martin Maes came into 2018 hungrier than ever, but when a separated shoulder set him out of the last round of the EWS in Columbia, his determination to return to the podium became more dogged than ever. A quick and focused recovery in Belgium meant that Martin was in good shape for the EWS in Olargues, France over the weekend. He and teammate Noga Korem had a tough weekend battling the weather and technical trails. Martin was able to fight back some time on Sunday and third spot on the podium, while Noga came in 11th. We could not be more proud!

Look out for GT Factory Racing next in Fort William for round two of the UCI Downhill World Cup!
