I'm still blown away watching this run. I think I've averaged two views a day since Sunday. Just mind blowing. Like someone opens a door to another dimension and a view of what was thought impossible is proven to be.....possible. Here is a good article on Pink Bike about this kid from the UK.
The only tragedy in all of this is that Aaron Gwin's season isn't getting the attention it deserves. First American to win the World Cup series since 92. Most World Cup wins in a season by a single rider, ever. 5 out of 7 I believe. His first ever RIDE on a DH bike was 2007. 2012 is going to be a very unpredictable year on the World Cup circuit.
