Over the weekend American downhill racer Aaron Gwin (Specialized Racing) did the unbelievable: he won the Leogang, Austria, World Cup downhill without a chain. The two-time World Cup overall champ snapped his chain right out of the gate and literally “coasted” to his second World Cup win of the year. How awesome is that?!
Believe it or not this isn’t the first ride without a chain that has been successful. Neko Mulally, who we profiled in Issue #184, finished fourth at the 2014 World Championships after breaking his chain at the starting gate.
