Tales of the Mob - Lenzerheide
"This stuff just happens sometimes"
There are two races to go and it looks like the Mob is being held together by stitches and braces. Angel's still out with his shoulder, Mulally has a broken scaphoid and Gwin's now gone and busted his knee.
It's not slowing the team down though. Gwin especially was on for the win this weekend until a freak sidewall tear saw him bobbling down into 51st position. Mulally also looked fast despite his injury but an inadequate back protector saw him disqualified from the race.
The Mob said: "Last year in Lenzerheide Aaron Gwin came within 96/100ths of a second of winning his first World Cup on Swiss soil, and was highly motivated to take the victory this weekend at Round 5 of the World Cup series. A last minute crash on Thursday saw Aaron in the doctor’s surgery requiring 4 stitches to his right knee yet despite this injury, he went on to win the qualifying race and set the tone for the weekend. Mr Gwin meant business. On finals day, as the last man down, Aaron turned the interval clocks green from the outset, up at sector 1 and 2, and then impressively up by 1.5secs at sector four before a puncture brought his run to an end"
