 Best news I've heard all winter! I cannot believe how strong he is coming back! I'm kinda shocked that Filip got 2nd, haha. That guy is the master of urban DH.

 No, marcelo is!

 Cedric is a badass for coming back so hard. 4th is a charm for almost dying a year ago. Props to all the riders, win or lose.

 2 chilenos en los top 5! Felicitaciones Antonio Leiva y Mauricio Acuña. Hace unas semanas, en el Open Shimano en Bariloche, Argentina, Mauricio terminó primero, antes de CG. Es bueno ver a CG de vuelta en una bici!

Por cierto, es genial leer articulos sobre Chile acá en Pb!

2 Chileans in the top 5! Congrats Antonio Leiva and Mauricio Acuña. A few weeks ago, in Open Shimano DH race in Bariloche, Argentina, Mauricio finished first, before CG. I'ts nice to see CG back on a bike!

Btw, it's great to read articles about Chile here in Pb!
