Aaron Gwin Wins Again

Steve Peat grabs second and Gee Atherton finished off the podium in eleventh.


With a commanding victory at the Windham World Cup DH, Aaron Gwin proved that he might just be unstoppable this year. Gwin finished his race run a whopping 2.339 seconds over the surprisingly-fast time set by Steve Peat. This victory marked Gwin’s fourth world cup downhill victory so far this year–there have only been five races.

On the women’s side, Rachel Atherton took her first victory of the year. The overall series leader, Tracy Moseley took third place just behind Floriane Pugin.

Here is a video edit we found from the Japanese film company AGMF that showcases the day’s racing:
