The sixth round of the 2022 downhill World Cup is underway at Snowshoe. In the Junior Racing, Gracey Hemstreet mastered the tough conditions to come out on top by just over three seconds. Pinkbike Racing’s Aimi Kenyon had an incredible run to cross the line in second place and current World Champion Izabela Yankova finished in third. For the Junior Men it was once again Jackson Goldstone on the top step of the podium as he found over five seconds on Tegan Cruz. Sebastian Holguin Villa completed the top three, nine seconds off the pace.
