Cairns World Cup Downhill Finals Slideshow - On Borrowed Shoes

Gee Atherton borrowed a spectator's shoes and won the UCI World Cup downhill in Cairns, Australia. That's just one of the incredible stories to come out of the jungle during the 2nd race of the 2014 World Cup season. Sven Martin, Duncan Philpott, Boris Beyer and Joe Bowman take you into the darkness without having to face the snakes, spiders or kangaroos head on. Simply amazing.

    Serious BS on the DQ. If they didn't DQ Rachel at Windam a couple years ago, there's no way Minnaar gets one today.

    Cool story on the shoes, would be pretty surreal if Gee approached me track-side and asked to swap shoes. Stoked Ratboy, Neko and Hill put down solid runs as well.

    Looking forward to the next round @ Ft. Bill!!!


    I wonder if there's a rule somewhere that disallows riders from borrowing equipment from spectators much like they have in XC. If so, Ratboy got robbed!

    Love it TeamVital! Can't wait to see Gwin's trike, Minnaar's DSQ is BS, and well done Gee and Rach.

    Shout out to Peaty, still kicking butt!
