The track was super technical forcing the riders to be extremely focused and physical to make it down in one piece. During the finals it was a mess with some riders able to race on a fairly fast grippy track as the am practice session cleaned out most of the mess from the rain from overnight. But, by the middle of the race…hail and rain bombed the track and turned everything into peanut butter, which changed everything for the top 20 guys.

In the end Oakley dominated the World Cup stop in Vigo in all categories see the results below.
