Danny Hart

The 2011 UCI Downhill world Championships went down this weekend in Champery Switzerland. Regular readers at Dirtwest will know we love 19 year-old Danny Hart's bucking wild riding style. This year he won the Championships by almost twelve seconds on the rain-drenched, super steep course. I must admit I am glad to see someone other than Aaron Gwin win a race. Our other favorite Downhill rider Brendan Fairclough took a handy 4th(just wait 'til his knee is fixed) Here's a pre race video from Dirt:

Watch Danny Hart's amazing run through some of the toughest conditions imaginable.
