Watch Blistering Downhill Runs from MTB World Cup

Fast, furious and flat-out. Watch the best of the Downhill Finals from Windham, New York.

We knew the racing was going to be close at Windham, but nobody expected Josh 'Ratboy' Bryceland to be able to lay down such a sizeable winning margin on the short and high-speed track in New York. With dry and dusty conditions mixed with such a short track, riders were pushing it right to the edge, which you can see in the video above.

Taking the win with an impressive 1.58 second gap, Bryceland secured his second World Cup win of the season, and the second of his career, pushing Specialized's duo of Aaron Gwin and Troy Brosnan to second and third on the podium, respectively. In the women's field, French pocket-rocket Emmeline Ragot sprinted to the win by an even bigger margin of 2.88 seconds over Rachel Atherton and Tracey Hannah.
