Cairns World Cup Downhill Qualifying Slideshow - Passenger or Pilot?

Were you a passenger or a pilot? That's what qualifying came down to at the UCI World Cup Downhill in Cairns, Australia. Extremely heavy and slippery mud caused the course to be unpredictable and difficult to negotiate. Most riders survived while a handful thrived. Sven Martin, Duncan Philpott, Boris Beyer and Joe Bowman capture the battle of this damp, daring downhill.
