I know it's not a World Cup, but the field was stacked and it was held at a prior WC course. It is just a matter of time until this kid puts the good ol US of A on top of the WC podiums and my guess is in the rainbow jersey as well. Great job Gwinny and Thanks!

Minnaar's start was rad! Gwin has been such a great surprise over the last year and a half. But I guess he is no longer a surprise and now is in the consistent top 5! N1!

Evan got 19th with a 1:56 which means that he was the fastest non-factory rider at the event, very impressive to say the very least!



A good friend of mine took some pictures of the event, you can check them out on http://blitzkasten.com/?view=fotos&rubrik=mtb&dir=13

Sadly Nick Beer had a big crash. But I think he's ok by now...

Turpen's a cool dude.. Pretty hardcore how he's travelling through Europe in a rental van. Just ran into him here @ Leogang. He was eating cold noodles out of a can...........

Anyone know where I can find some results from Wheels of Speed.. I'd like to see where Nico Vink finished.....

Yeah, awesome person for sure. He stayed with us several times during his trip and he was such a nice and friendly person to meet, as well as being a super fast rider.

For those interested in what he's been up to - head over to www.theprivateerlife.com.

Full results are right here: http://willingen.bike-festival.de.dedi1569.your-server.de/fileadmin/use…

Vink got 14th!
