In a run of brilliance and style, Remi Thirion claims his first World Cup downhill victory out from under seasoned competitors like Gee Atherton and Sam Hill at Andorra. Regarded as one of the most aggressive tracks on the World Cup downhill circuit, the Andorran course was steep, unrelenting and willing to dish out harsh penalties for riders who made mistakes. Rachel Atherton retained her undefeated streak in the Elite Women's category while Mike Jones took top honors in the Junior Men's class.

Travel across the globe to the small nation of Andorra through the lenses of Sven Martin, Duncan Philpott, Joe Bowman and Lee Trumpore as the 2013 World Cup downhill season unfolds.

    I feel like everyone talking like the data acquisition stuff won the race is taking away from Remi's badass riding. I'd say the main reason he won was because of the gnarly lines he chose and stomped in his run.

    WOW. I kinda felt like a doucher when I saw the final results.

    Thought all that computer gizmo stuff on Thirion's bike was a dumb move for practice. Just seems like having a 5-lb heavier bike in practice wouldn't really lay a good foundation for qualis or finals.

    Guess not.....

    Not even sure what the machinery data was used for, but it worked. Might see more a that in the near future.

    Go Hill, and i'm sure Gwin will have his day at least once by the end of the season....

    Rémi rode 5 runs in practice with the data acquisition system.
    BOS made important changes on the void shock, they augmented the volume of the air chamber(s?).
    You can see the prototype of the shock on this video:

    But Rémi is an amazing rider, with an gnarly style! I guess we will see again on top of a podium.

    Hope to see Cam Cole on a bike pretty soon.
