The first downhill practice session of the 2014 UCI World Cup concluded in Pietermaritzburg with no shortage of drama and carnage. The new rockgarden is not forgiving and caught riders off guard. Greg Minnaar went fastest in timed training with Aaron Gwin in 2nd place. While not much is put into the timed training results, we get a barometer of how the track is running. It's dry, fast and taking no prisoners.
Enjoy the fantastic action and insight by Sven Martin and Duncan Philpott.
