Getting excited about this now.
Just watched the preview video on CN http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/video-2012-uci-downhill-world-cup-preview
For me, the big unknown is Gee. Will having new focus and a new bike bring him back to the top (not that he was far off at his worst).
Then there’s all the youngsters – Danny Hart, Troy Brosnan, Brook Macdonald, even …
There’s just so many with the potential for a podium!
Or will Gwinny just rock up and beat everyone by 5secs again?Posted 5 years ago
I see Gwin, Minaar and Gee as the consistent ones who without crashes will always be there or thereabouts.
But then on any one day, all those young guns are capable of pulling of a great run and getting on the podium.
I’m still expecting Danny to carry on the momentum though.
I guess we’ll see some videos tomorrow.Posted 5 years agosamcamsdadMember
would like to see minnar get a win on home soil. watch out for graves though, reckon he’ll be up there this season.Posted 5 years ago
Be interesting to see if gwin can take the pressure after a storming season last year.
As for danny hart, hope he can carry on where he left off last year, but has being world champ got in the way of training and preparation for this year.
Whatever happens, i cant wait to watch it all unfold.themightymowgliSubscriber
I guess PMB is different to most with all the pedalling involved so really it’ll fall to Gwin, Minnaar Minnaar, Gee or any of the big powerhouse riders. I’d like to see Brendon get his wins. I’d like to see Danny take the series. Gwin is probably favorite to take PMB. I just wish he was more interesting to watch. He rides so well but with the flair of a brickPosted 5 years agosambobMember
I’m going for Gwin or Gee, both seem to have the fitness to beat anyone else on pedally courses. Gee’s twitter updates show he’s got the physical strength for the rocky stuff too, he’s massive 😯 Although having said that, Brosnan and Danny do well on the rocky stuff and they’re fairly small.Posted 5 years ago
ooh – the qualifying results are in:
6 seconds covers the top 10 – Peaty in 11th

Incredible photos from the qualis:
Danny can’t help himself – and neither can Warner! 🙂Posted 5 years agochakapingSubscriber
It’s going to be an incredible race. 🙂
I had the first two places right (so far). I think Greg is best placed to challenge Gwin overall and in PMB in particular. It was two-hundreths of a second last year wasn’t it?
Brosnan is incredible though. I can easily imagine him winning the WC series in future.Posted 5 years ago
