Aaron Gwin Discusses Racing His New 29er DH Bike

You've more than likely seen Aaron Gwin teasing a new downhill bike on social media. Now, he's back racing in La Bresse with the secret machine and has confirmed the YT DH bike is a 29er. He's been on the new whip for a couple weeks riding in California and said that between the 27.5 YT TUES and this 29er version, he prefers the 29er. Though he hasn't had a lot of time on the bike, specifically on rough tracks, it sounds like he's committed to the big wheels. His thumb injury is healing, he's able to hold on and while he's implying a conservative run this weekend in La Bresse, his focus is on World Champs in Lenzerheide two weeks from now. He has yet to win a World Champs DH title.

Listen up and keep your eyes peeled all weekend for shots from the course. -Interview and photos by @maddogboris
