Specialized Racing: UCI World Cup DH1 – Fort William

June 12th, 2013

By Factory Jackson

Not the start to the racing season we expected, but this does show that the podium machine is human after all and like the rest of us, has his off days. Talking to Aaron’s mechanic after the race, he said it just wasn’t a good run and not the best day in the office – “The much anticipated start to the 2013 UCI World Cup Downhill season arrived with round one at Fort William, Scotland. An unusually long break combined with atypical dry conditions on a course known for its difficulty added complexity for riders and support crew alike. Aaron Gwin and Troy Brosnan played it somewhat safe by focusing on regaining their race rhythm and dialing-in bike and equipment setup. Both put in respectable top-20 performances with eyes on the podium in coming weeks.”
