Danny Hart has claimed his second World Championship title after a dramatic win in Val di Sole which saw Aaron Gwin crash out.
The result capped Danny’s fourth consecutive win and signalled the end of a season to remember for the English rider.
Hart came in 2.927 seconds ahead of fellow Brit and Mondraker teammate Laurie Greenland, with Florent Payet, also on a Mondraker bike, finishing in third.
Hart won his first rainbow jersey in a famous run way in Champery way back in 2011, conquering a mud-drenched course which most had been slipping off to take the win in style – unleashing a whip which would go down in history on the way and prompting Rob Warner to yell: “how can Danny Hart sit down with balls that big?!”
