Danny Hart - 2011 UCI World Champion 6

At age 19, Danny Hart started his second pro season with the Giant Factory Off-Road Team hoping to maybe crack the top 5. He did more than that. At Round 2 of the World Cup, in front of a capacity crowd at his "home" venue in Scotland, Danny shocked the world with one of the most exciting DH runs ever seen - and he didn't stop there. Danny scored two more podium finishes on the World Cup and finished the season fourth overall. And he followed that with a jaw-dropping win at the World Championships in Champery, Switzerland. That run has been viewed more than 1 million times and, well, that's still not enough. Congratulations, Danny, on an amazing season.

    Danny is amazing, to be such a small guy,he realy puts the power down. Its awesome to see the changing of the guard ,the top podium spots will see new faces in 2012.

    Intense music. Danny certainly has the loosest and most radical style on the tour right now. Anxious to see what happens in 2012.
