Specialized Racing: World Cup DH3 – Vallnord

July 30th, 2013

By Factory Jackson

The Specialized Racing team hits round 3 of the 2013 UCI World Cup – “The ski area at Vallnord offers a particularly dynamic and demanding track, with a mix of tight sections that require a of pedaling, technical terrain, and some remarkably steep flat-out runs. Though it’s already late July, this is only third round, and the crew is visibly anxious to get back into racing rhythm. All three riders (Mitch Ropelato, Troy Brosnan, and Aaron Gwin) safely found their way down the track, with two of them placing in the top ten. Though satisfied with the progress, each rider is clearly hungry for better results.”
