Australian TROY BROSNAN won his second junior downhill world championship title in a row at the UCI Mountain Bike Worlds in Champery, Switzerland, on Sunday afternoon.
Rain started the morning of the competition and only got stronger all day. It made a very technical track even more technical and many of the top racers were crashing and slipping all over during their final runs.
Brosnan defeated 57 other juniors to take his second consecutive rainbow-striped jersey in a time of 3:51.503. He was the third last junior man down the hill and beat the time of the previous best rider, David Trummer (Austria) by more than 12 seconds.
"It feels amazing. Winning this one was harder than the first one," said Brosnan. "I can't believe it."
