Celebrations in Argentina

Written by Team Oasis at 21:54 17/1-2020

  Caviar and shisha's awaited on the the team after Rio Pico - Gas Nac today. It was double party time. Humberto Valenzuela managed to swipe our 125th victory in OCM, which is also our 50th downhill win.
  These kind of achievements you just have to celebrate as they takes ages to accomplish. The revenge for Valparaiso tasted so bitter sweet, as Humberto clearly proves that the downhill stage in Valparaiso was sabotaged. Fortunately that stage is on our plamares already.
  It all started with H√§rjedalen back in season 20. Rostam Sirjani proved to be a wise choice to train, though it took some seasons to see that downhill would become our path.
  All that's left now is to thank every rider who contributed to this awesome amount of wins. So give it up for:
  iran Rostam Sirjani (8x)
  netherlands Meine Witting (1x)
  italy Nari Salvatore (4x)
  seychelles Jude Evans (1x)
  iran Farzin Niroomad (1x)
  turkey Yanik Arda (4x)
  germany Dominic Haidegger (5x)
  netherlands Nick Boezeman (3x)
  bermuda Emerson Prewitt (3x)
  germany Helmut Gott (4x)
  turkey Senel Seyhan (5x)
  romania Tudor Basescu (2x)
  spain Humberto Valenzuela (3x)
  united arab emirates Rashad Abdul-Karim (6x)
  A small sidenote: If you include the races at Chennai - Pondicherry and Fuga dal Vesuvio our total wins is already at 55, but these are not races with DH as highest stat.

Team Oasis at 16:57 18/1-2020
  Added now, its Sirjani, Abdul-Karim and then Haidegger/Seyhan

AnnoDomini at 14:42 18/1-2020
  Which rider contributed the most from that list? My bet is on Arda, then Sirjani, then Haidegger.
