[Update]: 21:00GMT 15/08/2015
Today we witnessed the first day Intel NesTM Cup tournament with the round of 16. The tournament has some of the best trackmania players compete individually to rightfully be crowned best trackmania player for 2015. The tournament has a single elimination bracket format with players playing a best of 3 map with best of 9 rounds per map. In addition to this there is no tennis mode meaning if it comes to it the winner of the 9th point will take the map point making the tournament a little unforgiving.
MnM have two players representing us Joachim xxRider Andersen and Martin Kappa Krompolc. Below are the results posted at the end of the day.
