On a long, grueling downhill course in Angel Fire, New Mexico, Aaron Gwin and Jill Kintner earned 2013 U.S. National Championship downhill titles, backing up their qualifying results from the day before. Gwin posted a time that was over 11-seconds faster than 2nd place, Logan Binggeli. Gwin's team mate, Mitch Ropelato finished 3rd, while Logan's team mate, Kevin Aiello was 4th. Logan, Mitch and Kevin were all within 1-second of each other.

Top 3 Pro Women's results were identical to qualifying with Jill Kintner in 1st, Jacqueline Harmony 2nd and Anne Galyean in 3rd. Jill took 30-seconds out of Jacqueline in the finals.

Junior Men's racing took place under rain showers and in the end, North Carolina rider, Walker Shaw narrowly took the win over Kellen Lutz. The two were separated by only .352-seconds making for some extremely close racing.

    Vital! Disappointed you guys can't even keep the U.S. National Champs results on top of the news feed for a single day, nor as a headline article... Your web mag is perhaps in the best position to hype U.S. racing and must accept some responsibility for the poor turnout of fans and racers at Nationals. Good photos, appreciate the article but please do more to keep our elite downhill scene alive and well. Invest, let's get some interviews, video, hype the women's field (their results were available on USA Cycling last night before this article went live...)
    Love you guys, please help keep DH racing in the U.S. alive.

    gravity pirates, where you there?

    if so you would have been aware at the complete lack of organization throughout the event and the lack of cell phone and internet service at the venue, etc.

    photos of results were posted to Vital before any news his USAC website. As of 6 pm last night they had yet to post proper results on site. USAC may have had them for their own updates but they did not share, and there was ZERO regard given to getting this info to the media.

    There are lots of photos and interviews coming, have some patience. It will be better coverage than you will find anywhere on the internet. The event ran hours behind schedule, we all have long drives home, then have photos to process, audio files to sort and cations to write to tell a story... This does not simply just happen immediately, it takes time and HARD WORK.

    I fail to see how Vital or any media outlet can should accept any responsibility for the poor turnout. The state of USAC sanctioned races, their poor product, and poor turnout are the sole fault of USAC.

    2 of the best photographers in the country covering the event is our investment. placement on the homepage has little relevance with how many people see an article and it has since been bumped back up with full results available. if you had links and info on results, send them on or leave them in the comments. we'll add them to the articles as needed. it's a TEAM effort out there for all of us and that includes you helping out to make our sport great by providing information you have.

    Davetrumpore hit the nail on the head and I'd take it a step further... If you want to help keep DH racing alive in the US, stop supporting USAC sanctioned events and help remove that company from US downhilling entirely. Other MTB formats are having BIG success outside of the bureaucratic and notoriously unsuccessful USAC umbrella. Removing the USAC from US downhilling would do more for the American downhill race scene than any amount of views on any amount of articles on this or other websites.

    Not so sure on that. Logan is fast but can maybe do top 25 at a UCI race...... I am hoping but not betting the home on it yet!

    yeah, but he spanked him by over 10 seconds though.

    Well at least he is improving; remember Logan beat him at the first Pro Grt this year.
