2013 U.S. National Champs Dual Slalom & DH Photos - Aaron Gwin, 1st in Qualifying - 2013 U.S. National Championship Downhill Qualifying and Dual Slalom Photos - Mountain Biking Pictures - Vital MTB

The internet forum jockeys all have their own opinions of Aaron Gwin these days, and I'm sure they have already taken to their keyboards for better or worse after he topped qualifying results today, 7-seconds ahead of team mate Mitch Ropelato.

For the record, we're calling the timed runs at Angel Fire today *qualifying* because that is what the USAC results sheet said. No one was eliminated from competition, however, so it should be considered a seeding round. -gordo

    Internet jockeys with out us you wouldn't have an online business, when you're a professional in the spotlight become successful, you take the good with the bad regardless of reality, results speak for themselves in sport they're is no hiding, real champions rise to the top, they don't whine and make excuses about people who have opinions, everyone has one like a holes, life get over it already, don't bite the hands that feed you and maybe the so called internet jockeys might show more respect! Id expect AG to do well here in this company, might just help find his gear before Mt St Anne!

    You should just be happy they said "internet forum jockeys" and didn't refer to you by name.

    7 sec gap on a 5:30 course isn't that huge...

    Damn. I've watched both Gwin and Mitch ride and race in person, and having Aaron put 7 into Mitch is CRAZY. Both guys are scary fast. Looks to me like Gwin has a fire under his tail.
