Added a new video Marcelo Gutierrez has a Winning Routine for Winning the Garbanzo DH 8/14/2014 9:58 AM
C138x104

As it turns out, winning the Garbanzo DH requires a little bit of superstition in addition to going as fast as you can. Marcelo Gutierrez woke up on race day and put his right foot on the floor. He admits, somewhat reluctantly, that he’s a bit superstitious — but most of us are (admit it). He completes a couple of morning recon runs on his favorite track and then fulfilled media obligations before heading back to his room to rest up for the race. He would’ve liked to roll back to the lift to rip park laps the rest of the day — this is Whistler, after all — but saving energy for the 12-and-a-half minutes of flat out charging the Garbanzo DH was more important. Before his race run, Marcelo warms up with a pre-race routine designed to get his entire body ready: get the circulation going, loosen up, warm up the arms, spin the legs, breathing deep conscious breaths, and some focused reflection. Seconds before his start, he smiles and tells himself, “Okay dude, we’re going to enjoy this. It’s going to be good. Just let it go — and go as fast as you can.” For the next 12 minutes and 24 seconds, the Giant Factory Team rider did exactly that with an “as fast as you can” faster than anyone else's.
