Trek World Racing DH 2012 || Hafjell

October 4th, 2012

By Factory Jackson

Sometimes it pays to take your time and deliver a truly awesome edit and like always, TWR’s video maestro Vittorio, has done what his usual thing of waiting for the dust to settle and then drops one of the best race team edits going. In this stellar video, we get to see Neko round his season off with a solid result, watch Aaron crash out, take the overall series trophy and bid an emotional farewell to Justin Leov.

“As the sole competitor racing for Trek World Racing at the World Cup finals here in Hafjell, Norway, Neko Mulally showed great pace in both qualifying and the final race to demonstrate he’s fully recovered from the injuries suffered earlier in the season. Unfortunately a hand injury sustained in practice forced Aaron Gwin out of the event. It was the same hand and injury location as that suffered in Val d’Isere at Round 6, but this time the bone was heavily bruised. Team mate Justin Leov was unable to attend the finals due to the unexpected loss of his best friend James Dodds, a pioneer in New Zealand mountain biking who was being remembered by many of the Kiwi riders here this weekend.”
