MTB

    

Thomas Genon won the mountain bike slopestyle contest at FISE for the second year in a row with victory in the first FMB World Tour Gold event of 2014.

The Belgian looked in top form as the first Diamond event of 2014, Crankworx Les Deux Alpes, approaches, seeing off second-placed Martin Soderstrom and 19-year-old Anton Thelander to top the podium.

However, Soderstrom will be delighted to have only narrowly missed out on the top spot considering FISE was his 2014 contest debut following an injury late last year.
