Hannah Takes top honors in Vigo

Australian Mick Hannah (of the Cannondale-sponsored The Cut) kicked off the UCI World Cup series at Vigo, Spain with a huge victory taking top honors by winning the pro men's downhill by nearly a second. After a hard crash in practice where he knocked the wind out of himself, Hannah came back hard and set the fastest qualifying time on Saturday and set the stage for Sunday's main event. Hannah's time was 2.22.942 coming in almost a second faster than fellow Aussie Nathan Rennie (Santa Cruz Syndicate).

"I felt great all weekend. Everything fell into place for qualifying and I was pumped to race," Explained Hannah. "During my race run I hit all the corners fluid and perfect. The course was quite technical, but the Judge handled it smooth."
