Conditions were prime for the last World Cup of the 2012 season and so was the competition. Rachel Atherton secured a race win and a World Cup overall title in Norway today, but drama was in the Men's final as the names on the podium was more diverse than ever. Newcomer to the podium, George Brannigan convincingly secured 2nd place while teammate, Steve Smith, finally won his first World Cup downhill by .4 seconds. Devinci / Fox dominated to podium with team member Nick Beer placing 5th, giving Devinci three riders on the steps. Current World Champion, Greg Minnaar remained consistent with a 3rd place in the race and 2nd overall in the World Cup standings, just beating rival, Gee Atherton who finished 4th behind Greg by only .15 seconds. Unfortunately, 2nd place qualifier, Robin Wallner, didn't have the run he'd hoped for, but he's proven he has the speed for the future. World Cup winner, Aaron Gwin did not race today, due to an injury sustained in practice.
