It was held on Sunday 11 June in Leogang (Austria), the third stage of the UCI Downhill World Cup 2017. To win, for the third consecutive year, was the American Aaron Gwin.
The rider of the "The YT MOB" team reached the time of 3'06'958, ahead of the Frenchman Loris Vergier (+1''435) and South African Greg Minnaar (+2''684). Fourth place for Troy Brosnan, followed by Bernard Kerr, Laurie Greenland and Luca Shaw.
It's hard to find the right words to describe the run that led Aaron Gwin to victory. The American has interweaved stretches that have been brilliantly precise at times where it has been carried away by aggressive driving, where it has pushed far beyond the limit, as long as it has limits.
During his run he ran into a couple of mistakes from which he came out with even greater determination, clearly demonstrating his intention to win ... and so it was.
He brings home his 17th career win, third consecutive victory here at Leogang, and dates from the 8th to 2nd place overall. This ranking sees Greg Minnaar at first place with 472 points, against 434 by Aaron Gwin.
