Race Report: B-Maaxx, Round 4 - Ski Bromont
Weather and conditions were perfect. I had a great time racing and the #20 and #7 Combo makes for a fantastic course layout. Hats off to the BMAXX organizers. Great fun had by all.

Results and Overall Standings: World Cup DH Val di Sole - Finals
@Protour, I presently own an M9 and have tried a Demo and GT and I do admit they are all different. In fact I find that the GT is a much harder bike to get used to and I don't feel comfortable at all on it. Regarding the Demo, its a nice ride but then again I'm only a Weekend Warrior and not a Pro Racer. For me my M9, stabilizes all the errors I due in regards of wrong line choices and my suspension setup matches me perfectly. That being said, The Demo Setup's that Aaron and Troy ride are very different from the Stock purchase that you and I would make. They have their own personal Mech's that adjust every nook and cranny for them. I think that the one true perspective here is that they are Pro Racer's , this is their life and they adjust accordingly every aspect of their rides, either that be with Fox, Sram, Rockshox, Saint etc. Leaving Trek and switching to Specialized for Gwin would take some adapting too and yes it took a couple of years but they were spent on adjusting and re-adjusting the ride so that it was customed made just for them. Anyways, at the end of the day, it all comes down to the rider. They all have factory based bikes that are tuned to their riding styles and its the physical training, lines choices, when to let go of the brakes, variable and adapting conditions and some lady luck that wins it. Loic has come in 2nd so many many times. Do you honestly think that the difference is between his bike and Gwin's? Hey maybe Gwin is using his old formula of adjusting his fork and shock to higher pressure which would mean much less resistance/impact on the ruts and braking bumps but then again it demands much more control, core stability and muscular endurance. Today we witnessed Minnar go down. Seriously, I've been following DH for a hell of a long time and I never really saw him fall. He's always in total control. Is it because of the bike he fell? No. It's Human error, long story short.

Nice to see him back on his bike. Too bad he's out of the top 80 and wont be racing tomorrow :( Even at his age he's a consistent Top 20 racer. A True Legend and I hope we see him next year in full form.

I'm Canadian and I must admit after seeing Marcelo take the Crankworx DH in Whistler last year, it would be great for Columbia to win a WC in DH. Marcelo is a very sympathetic racer and all round great guy.
