Pietermaritzburg World Cup Downhill 2014 / by George Rabe

I went through to Pietemaritzburg last weekend to document the racers, managers and mechanics that are the back bone to what has become the definitive benchmark in downhill racing events, the UCI World Cup. 

The Specialized team took the win for the weekend thanks to American rider Aaron Gwin, aboard a modified Specialized Enduro Evo. 

Here are a few portraits of the various teams involved.
