Greg Minnaar and Tracy Moseley have won the La Bresse World Cup, followed by Gee Atherton and Aaron Gwin in the men's, and Floriane Pugin and Sabrina Jonnier for the women. With his 3rd place finish at La Bresse Aaron Gwin has become the first American to ever win the overall World Cup Title, and the first person to secure the title before the last race since 2000.
Big Minnaar is the only man to have beaten Aaron Gwin this season, doing it twice now. Greg was killing it all day, absolutely pinned through the second steep section where many were struggling. Never bet against him...

The predicted rains finally fell Saturday night, and it was almost biblical in proportions at times. Sunday morning was a whole new ball game. Full spikes, deep ruts and HUGE puddles. Troy Brosnan was one of the first down and got the full mud treatment.
With 150 points between Tracy Moseley and Floriane Pugin, Moseley does not have the title completely locked up. Yet. But the way she's been dominating of late, the World Cup overall DH title will most likely be hers at Val di Sole.
Cam Cole on his finals run.
It's been a rough year for Minaar; the win here in La Bresse was a welcome won, and just offset the sting of Aaron Gwin sealing the deal on the World Cup over all win.
Moseley savored this win. For all of 60 seconds - the amount of time it took her to polish off the entire bottle of champagne.
MS Evil's Brook Macdonald had a rough day before qualifying on Saturday. He took a tumble in one of the steepest section sof the track and cartwheeled his way down it.
Josh Bryceland had a rough day. He had a blazing run going until the last 50m. he blew his feet off the pedals and sailed off the the finish line gap with no hands or feet on the bars. Luckily Josh was okay and smiling in the pits a few minutes ago, pride hurt, but body not damaged.
