Greg Minnaar and Myriam Nicole became the first repeat winners of the season.

The world’s fastest mountain bikers converged in Lenzerheide, Switzerland, last weekend. Heading into race day, some of the biggest names in downhill were noticeably absent due to a series of brutal crashes and mechanicals during practice and qualifying.

During the main event, that story repeated itself. Several slippery corners and a brutal rock section demolished podium dreams, but the last six men down the hill put on a wild show. Get a flavor of the proceedings in the short highlight reel above.
