2012 UCI World Cup, Pietermaritzburg, South Africa - Downhill Qualifiers

Only .008 seconds separated second place Aaron Gwin from the fastest downhill qualifier in South Africa, Greg Minnaar. Minnaar has been quiet during the off-season and all of the hype has been on Gwin's shoulders, so while these results are not really terribly shocking, they definitely make race day speculation considerably more exciting. Gary Perkin and Sven Martin recount the day's events from Pietermaritzburg.

    Thanks Gents, you guys always add more stoke to the fire with these shots. Is it just me or is THannah extremely photogenic? Slides 4 and 25 are keepers. Every shot I have seen of her is mint!

    The picture of Brendan, Josh, and Julien Camellini is awesome (I'm just wondering where J.C. is planning to land?), this pedal is definitely longer than the wall, but it is on a better slope and has jumps mixed in to make it more interesting, Danny's whip is crazy, and the slidewhows are always amazing!
