Aaron Gwin destroyed the Val di Sole race track, taking the win by an insane 7 seconds!!!
Unbelievable! Aaron Gwin just gave the world a lesson in to how to ride downhill fast. Beating Greg Minnaar by nearly 8 seconds on a track this rough just blows the mind!
Gwinny said afterwards: “I just put in a solid run, I knew is was gonna be tough. It’s a really rough track so I had to stay patient and try to focus on my riding not on the race run. It was almost like being on autopilot, but I guess all the good runs are like that.”
As Warner put it: If that was Gwin being patient I’d hate to see him when he was in a hurry!
Great result for Berny Kerr in 13th.
Lapierre boys were flying, Bruni Loic, fastest junior up there in 11th, good return to form for Cam Cole on the podium in 5th and team mate Blenky in 8th.
First year junior Richie Rude is going to be a force to be reckoned with. 21st spot after laying it down is amazing.
