Team Videos – Val Di Sole World Cup DH

Trek World Racing

After setting the fastest qualifying time yesterday by more than 7 seconds, Trek World Racing’s Aaron Gwin displayed incredible poise and composure to once again win by a similar margin today in the finals here at Val di Sole, Italy. While the rest of the field were separated by tenths of a second, the sizes of Aaron’s winning margins really were the talk of the paddock throughout the weekend. The win today puts Aaron in the leader’s jersey, but tied on points with main rival Greg Minnaar.

 

CRC/Nukeproof

Following a quiet start to the season with two riders missing from round one, the team take to Val di Sole for the second round of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup to take on one of the toughest tracks on the circuit. Check out the edit by the guys at MTBcut which includes some fun on Lake Garda before the race.

 

Monster Energy Specialized

After a rough off at Leogang, Troy Brosnan sat out the second round of the World Cup series at Val di Sole. Sam, meanwhile, was feeling good about his fitness, but not as much about the loose, rooty track. Despite his misgivings, Hill finished 7th feeling good about the next few rounds. The team was also finally able to talk about the 2013 Demo 8 Carbon they’d been riding since last year’s World Championships.

 

Santa Cruz Syndicate

The Syndicate arrives in Italy, and gets back to racing after what seems like an eternity. Mixed fortunes abounded here – Josh Bryceland qualified 7th but then slipped a pedal and did some dirt surfing in the final. Peaty got pinballed by the course (along with just about everyone else), finishing 14th when the dust settled. Greg Minnaar, after a close-fought win at the opening round in Pietermaritzburg, claimed a strong 2nd in both qualifying and the main, and now shares the World Cup lead with Aaron Gwin.

 

Team Lapierre

The lapierre boys had a great weekend in Val di Sole, with Cam Cole taking fifth place in his return to World Cup racing, Blinky in eighth and Loic Bruni in 11th after one of the longest stints in the hot seat of the day. Take a look around the teams huge new team truck, and then enjoy some of their highlights from practice and race day.
