Danny Hart - 2011 UCI World Champion 6

At age 19, Danny Hart started his second pro season with the Giant Factory Off-Road Team hoping to maybe crack the top 5. He did more than that. At Round 2 of the World Cup, in front of a capacity crowd at his "home" venue in Scotland, Danny shocked the world with one of the most exciting DH runs ever seen - and he didn't stop there. Danny scored two more podium finishes on the World Cup and finished the season fourth overall. And he followed that with a jaw-dropping win at the World Championships in Champery, Switzerland. That run has been viewed more than 1 million times and, well, that's still not enough. Congratulations, Danny, on an amazing season.
