|Mont-Sainte-Anne depicted its best side. The forecasted rain on race day never showed up and the riders were able to show off their skills on the insanely fast track. Theoretically it could have been Aaron Gwins early World Cup overall win – but it was to be different. Aaron Gwin proved his skills in the qualifying and took top spot with 3.603 sec lead. Angel Suarez qualified 67.
Finals have been thrilling: When Aaron went out of the start gate, team mate Angel had already taken the 36th place with a time of 4:12.151 and competitor Danny Hart took a place on the Hot Seat. At the beginning of the track Aaron had made a small mistake but managed to get back on second spot in the split time. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough in the end: He missed the win by 0.669 sec. So it comes down to the very last round of the World Cup in Vallnord, where Danny Hart and Aaron Gwin are going to fight for the overall win.
