    Troy Brosnan is back in a big way. After landing in second at last night's pumptrack challenge, he sent it all the way to first place in the dual today. Enjoy some visual stimulation after the click...

    TVS and Ropelato...Mitch went down on the first run, and the penalty was too much to make up.

    Luca Shaw gets a close second, beating Troy in the first run and not even a mention of his name! Super humble junior rider from NC, not really a surprising result to anyone who knows about him. Nice job!

    NC has a whole swarm of insanely fast kids. It's awesome that DS is discipline that makes that explicit. More DS races and we'll see even more of them knocking off big names. Because DS rules.

    But Yeah,
    Darkhorse Jr. ripper lands second, no mention in the titles, captions or editorial content.

    I've seen the same picture of the stoked Brosnan in multiple places on multiple websites without a caption, standing next to somebody I assumed was Brendan Fairclough or the dozens of other people who wear the same stuff. Attn kids: Image matters Attn media: dig harder.

    Man, if all of Herndon's GROM kids could have all gone, the pros would all have to watch juniors take the podium! :D
