It's been a long time coming but Finally 3 is finally here. The 2011 UCI World Cup ushered in a new era in downhill and a new generation of talent. With Trek's Aaron Gwin dominating race after race, the old order could only look on while the new order stepped up their game and showed their worth. Specialized's Troy Brosnan coasted straight into the top ten alongside the UK's Danny Hart, who saved the best till last and let it all hang out at the World Champs in Champery, producing a run that rivaled anything that had gone before it.
New Zealand's Brook MacDonald, at just 20 years of age, showed his mettle in 2011 and together with the Syndicate's Josh Bryceland has proven himself more than capable of taking a win. Who would have known what 2011 would bring back in Peitermaritzberg, South Africa in April of last year?
