Aaron Gwin Discusses His Rise to the Top of World Cup Downhill

Gypsy Tales is predominately a motocross podcast hosted by Jase MacAlpine that has featured select mountain biker racers in the past, including Dean Lucas, Sam Hill and now Aaron Gwin. The entire podcast is almost four hours long and covers Aaron's rise to becoming one of the most dominant downhill racers of all time, along with plenty of interning stories and insight into how he approaches racing and life as a whole. 

In this excerpt, Aaron timelines his quick progression from first World Cup race to first World Cup win to back-to-back World Cup Overall titles in just four seasons. Gwin's rise to the top took the World Cup scene by surprise and caused a mad-dash of racers playing catch up to match his fitness, focus and determination, which ultimately elevated elite-level downhill racing forever.
