What a race. What. A. Race.
Just when you think you know what is about to happen it all turns upside down. That’s the feeling we had here in Leogang today when Aaron Gwin clearly had drivetrain troubles out of the start gate (he snapped his chain). Surely that would count the American out of the running on a course with such an infamously flat pedal in the middle? Not a chance. Gwin just gave the world of downhill a schooling like its never had before. Simply unbelievable.
Enjoy the finish line gallery below and stay tuned for our full gallery from today’s wild Leogang finals coming up later.
