Camille Balanche of Switzerland and Britain’s Matt Walker stormed to downhill wins at the International Cycling Union (UCI) Mountain Bike World Cup in Leogang in Austria.

This was Balanche’s second downhill triumph of the season and her third consecutive podium.

The Swiss rider completed the course at a time of 4 mins 8.216 secs to claim top spot.

This was a more than comfortable finish as France’s Myriam Nicole, the nearest challenger to Balanche, trailed by 11.368 secs.

Italy’s Eleonora Farina followed the race winner 16.063 secs later.

Meanwhile, Walker grabbed his first downhill victory of the campaign after overpowering compatriot Danny Hart and Spain’s Ángel Suárez Alonso.

The two Brits were neck and neck towards the finish, but Walker had enough energy levels to record a time of 3:28.816.

This was just 0.325 secs faster than Hart in second.

The Spaniard completed the top three by edging out France’s Amaury Pierron, the winner of Lourdes and Fort William.

Suárez Alonso finished 1.554 secs behind Walker while Pierron followed marginally by 1.714 secs.

The UCI Mountain Bike World Cup is scheduled to conclude tomorrow with the cross-country events.
