WINNING BIKE - Aaron Gwin's YT TUES at Mont-Sainte-Anne
As a journalist, you always want to rise to the occasion, but what can we find to write here that could stand shoulder to shoulder with what Gwin did on race day in Mont-Sainte-Anne? Short of pulling a Pulitzer prize out of a hat, not much - so we'll let Aaron and his mechanic John Hall do all the talking instead. We apologize for the audio quality, the weather took a toll on our gear too!
Dude, that's my tire.
On the topic of the winning bike, you can drool over Aaron's YT TUES CF with FOX, Renthal, TRP, SRAM, e*thirteen and HT goodies in the pics below, but above all let's not forget the tires - Aaron's signature Onza Aquila tire, essentially a dry/mixed tire. That's right, Gwin didn't bother swapping his rubber when the heavens opened. How crazy is that?
