The race Windham (United States) was probably one of the most spectacular of the season. The route favored high speed and if this were not enough rock gardens and jumps have literally inflamed the show. A climb to the top step of the podium was Aaron Gwin (Trek World Racing) that led to thousands of American fans has proved, again, the rider to be in better shape and better in an absolute sense. Jacob Gibbins has made a little’ of photos to tell the finals of American race.
Climb to the top. Aaron Gwin (Trek World Racing) is directed towards the head of the path. A moment certainly very important for a rider who once wore the helmet remains concentrate less on his run. Certainly know how to focus and know how to stay cool in any situation are some of the characteristics of the American sample, which then allow, together with a unique driving style, to win the Cup races. It rises just, it just wins!
No one doubts the skill and style of Steve Smith (Devinci Global Racing) but Windham Canada's has really impressed. And grabbed a deserved second place with an extraordinary determination. Smith will be perfectly at home on fast tracks such as the U.S. but certainly able to say, its also the last cup races.
Gee Atherton (GT Factory Racing) is the symbol of that type of rider that in every circumstance and on every track manages to do well. The third place to Windham is proof that the English champion is always able to “pull out of the helmet” good numbers of. His style of driving fast and clean always manages to get him to the podium. For sure is having a great season.
Now we are all accustomed to the excellent performance of Danny Hart (Giant Factory Off Road Team). A Windham English former world champion has long been seated sull'hot seat, best of him only Atherton, Smith and Gwin. At the end of quarter end.
Had it not been for some “smear” in the upper part of the track, Sam Hill (Monster Energy Specialized) would almost certainly grabbed the podium. Always faithful to flat pedals, The Australian will finish the race in seventh place.
A connoisseur nutshell. I fan a Windham surely played a role in the victory of their idol Aaron Gwin. Curve after curve of the three letters were more shout USA.
By the fifth stage win of World Cup 2012. Gwin da record! A phenomenal season for the American rider who now feels the cup closer. Two races before the end he is the leader nell'overall.
Tris d'assi. The top three finishers in Windham, although many others were the riders that have inflamed the American race. The appointment with the World Cup later this month is the race Val d'Isere (French).
