Specialized Racing: World Cup DH3 – Vallnord

Troy Brosnan has been the surprise of the Specialized Racing Team on the DH circuit this year, Gwin still doesn’t seem to be able to put a solid run together despite being happier with the bike and Ropelato is still finding his feet amongst the big boys…

The downhill boys head to Andorra as the 2013 UCI Downhill World Cup season continues. The ski area at Vallnord offers a particularly dynamic and demanding track, with a mix of tight sections that require a of pedaling, technical terrain, and some remarkably steep flat-out runs. Though it’s already late July, this is only third round, and the crew is visibly anxious to get back into racing rhythm.

All three riders (Mitch Ropelato, Troy Brosnan, and Aaron Gwin) safely found their way down the track, with two of them placing in the top ten. Though satisfied with the progress, each rider is clearly hungry for better results.
