Despite his relatively young DH career, Aaron Gwin has had more than his fair share of incredible rides. He's smashed the competition, the amassed best riders in the world, by incredible margins and won back-to-back World Cup overalls as testament. 

But his race run in Leogang on Sunday may just be filed right up there as his most memorable. A flat tyre had seemingly scheduled him to vanish from our screens a forlorn figure but Aaron had other ideas.

Watch the video then have a think about how quickly you'd like to ride your local DH track on a wheel rim with your rear tyre flapping around the frame.
