To say downhill mountain bike racer Aaron Gwin is having a good season is like saying Specialized Bicycles is just a tad litigious: a huge understatement. Gwin’s latest display of dominance was last weekend’s run at Windham, a ski hill in the Catskill Mountains, about 2.5 hours north of New York City. In Gwin’s third World Cup win of the season, he crushed the field, beating second-place finisher Greg Minnaar by 3.505 seconds and third-place finisher Loris Vergier by 4.290 seconds.
Do yourself a favor and watch his run. And be sure to turn up the volume: the race announcer is on fire. Not quite as good as the announcers in Danny Hart’s 2011 run in Champery, but close.Gwin’s domination of 2015 has him leading the series by 135 points with just one race left. How the hell does anyone compete against a guy who broke his chain coming out of the starting gate and still knocked out the fastest time on the course? They compete for second.
