What a remarkable day of racing in the heat of the Valley of the Sun. Val di Sole, Italy left few survivors after a long, hot weekend of World Cup downhill mountain bike racing. Among the survivors were Gee and Rachel Atherton of GT Factory Racing who, once again, took the double team and family victories. The World Cup takes a 5-week hiatus as riders re-group and rethink about what it will take to win against the Atherton clan.
A HUGE thanks to Sven Martin, Duncan Philpott, Joe Bowman, Lee Trumpore and Brandon Turman for bringing us the most incredible World Cup coverage on the web. They are in the trenches long after the racers are in bed and the team trucks have left the pits. Grazie amici miei!!!
