Gwin seems relaxed in this vid, whereas young Troy Brosnan is positively ecstatic about his result. Didn't catch the action from Val di Sole? Click here for the full report.
What a difference a week can make! The Specialized Racing downhill squad rolled out of last week's season opener at Fort William with some valuable knowledge and a lot of hard work to do. Putting both Troy Brosnan and Aaron Gwin back in the top ten at Val di Sole, with Troy on the podium, is proof of tremendous progress.
It's a few weeks until round three, but it won't be a vacation. Riders and crew will continue dialing in bike setup, equipment choices, and further honing skills. The battle for World Cup overall has only begun.
