New York Empire kickstarted their overall GCL ranking comeback with a phenomenal double clear in Monaco from Scott Brash and David Will, watched on by teammate and team owner Georgina Bloomberg. 

In an edge of the seat first round of the GCL competition, Brash and Will pulled out all the stops to deliver a Formula 1 fast clear, finishing ahead of four other teams who were able to keep a zero score today, giving themselves the best opportunity as the teams look to the GC Prague Playoffs this December.

With only the top 16 teams qualifying for the GC Prague Playoffs, New York Empire are currently in 16th and dangerously close to the drop zone. A strong result for the team this weekend would put them back in the running for the second half of the season, boosting their chances of reaching the GC Playoffs as the remaining events unfold.

Keeping ahead of the Scandinavian Vikings, Rome Gladiators and Prague Lions, the New York Empire team will start as the last riders to go in the GCL Monaco final. Talking about Saturday’s showdown, Brash said: “It's an advantage going last - we’ll know what to do on Saturday, so it’s a great position to be in.”
