Yesterday in Commezzadura (Italy) was a day amazing. Aaron Gwin won by demonstrating once again be the landmark of the downhill World. Eight seconds is an eternity of separation… Also Lover congratulated his rival for the excellent performance demonstrating to the world of being a great athlete as well as a phenomenal rider.
The predictions of the race gave Gwin as favorite, but many also thought that Lover could repeat the good performance of the opening race of the World Cup 2012. Still many thought favored Hill and Heart. The biggest surprise was that of Gee Atherton that, after injury to the tibia, some time ago and ruining his arm after falling on the path to Italian, has proven to be one of the best available dhillers ranked third on the podium.
Among the predictions that were made in these days to guess the top three was Fabiano Michelutti (1.Gwin 2.Minnaar 3.Atherton 4.Hart 5.Hannah). Fabian Wins TriRide World Cup Contest of Val di Sole and will soon be home quite a few Kenda Nevegal 26×2.35 Stick-e and a pair of Kenda Slant Six 26×2.35 Stick-e. Brave!
Appointment in a few days with the TriRide World Cup Contest of Fort William. Stay tuned!
