2010年六月:一名年僅18歲Sam Hill的徒弟,跟著Monster/Specializes/Mad Cats車隊抵達蘇格蘭威廉堡。他的名字叫Troy Brosnan,成績4:53.8,排名57。

2014年六月:22歲的Troy Brosnan再次來到威廉堡。這次他的成績比師父高了一名,並且寫下記錄,成為第一個在威廉堡如此殘酷賽道上,拿下首勝的車手。

bigquotesTroy在跑的時候,播報室裡一片狂叫,老實說感覺都要招來別人抗議了。但如果你看見有人如此精采的表現,又是最後一個下山的人,你大概也會為之瘋狂,對吧?真的太嗨了。Rober Warner爵士 - 卓越職業播報員。

the mixed weather in Scotland makes for some breathtaking scenery.

Ahhhhhh the fickle weather of Scotland. While we didn t get snow this week we got just about everything else mother nature has to offer. Four seasons in one day.

This was the weather as riders headed up for the first practice session. At this point it was anyone s guess as to what the weather would do on the day.

Beaumont tweaks the Dragon elastic coming off the top of the gondola. Slugger is out to steal some serious Atherton limelight this season 11 won t be enough for him this time but still shows he means it.

明顯看得出來,Martin Maes的過人之處就在於他強大的體力。這是他的第一個世界盃出賽。他的第一個世界盃分站冠軍。比利時人的第一個世界盃分站冠軍。幹的好!Maes。

Martin Maes may have beaten Loris today in a World Cup DH but Loris beat Martin in an EWS race last year so as far as we can reckon they are even regardless of racing discipline.

Ahhhhhh the fickle weather of Scotland. While we didn t get snow this week we got just about everything else mother nature has to offer. Four seasons in one day.

Emmeline Ragot warming up with her mechanic Billy on hand for whatever she might need.

Emmeline Ragot熱身時,他的技師Billy隨侍在側回應他的任何需求。在這個境界的技師,大概就是酒保/心理師的合體 - Billy必須提供起跑前Emmeline需要的任何東西:建議、暖過的手套、水....只要說的出來,Billy就得拿的出來。

Ragot on track for a rock stat time....

There is no better way to validate a new bike than with a World Cup win. Doing so with 8 seconds of authority is even better.

Oui madame vous tes num ro un. Ragot and Myriam whisper secretively as their plan to plant nail strips in tactical locations on track comes together.
Oui Madam, vous etes numero un。(譯:是的女士,你是第一名)Rogat跟Mriam正用法文偷偷討論在賽道上哪裡放了釘子。

If there was ever a story behind the final results this was it. Three flat tires for three of the fastest ladies on the planet made for a bittersweet ending to the women s final.

Brook took an unplanned diversion during his run that saw him riding some serious rodeo. The Bulldog is still looking to find the form that put him on the top steps here last year before his shoulder gave out.

Davinci車隊的Mark Wallace正在路上。這路看起來好像不難,但對於氣喘吁吁的選手而言,最快的跑法就是冒著踏板卡到那幾塊大石頭的風險,跑內側的走線。

Marcello Gutierrez modeling his brand new mouth guard. I never thought about wearing one until I broke out a couple teeth. Now I always wear one. It has some other benefits too. When asked Gutierrez claims it aids his breathing and also works in the event of a crash to prevent concussions.
Marcello Gutierrez使用他最新的護齒。「以前我都沒想過要用,直到牙齒真的被撞斷之後。現在上場我總是會戴,它也有其他功用。」那是什麼?他說這個東西會幫助呼吸,還可以在摔車時防止腦震盪。

Isak Leivsson KO d himself hard during his run and didn t make it down the mountain at least from what he can remember . The Norwegien has style for miles.
