Weekend Awesome – Aaron Gwin Races Downhill on a KTM RC390

Mountain bike racing fans will be familiar with two-time World Cup Champion Aaron Gwin. Last month, Gwin won a World Cup Downhill race in Austria despite snapping his bike chain early on his winning run. It was an amazing feat, and you can watch his run here, but for this weekend’s video, Gwin re-enacts the race, this time riding downhill on a KTM.

That’s pretty amazing in its own right, but what’s also impressive is it wasn’t a KTM dirt bike but an RC390 sportbike! Of course, the video is a gag, as the RC390’s chain is intact the entire run, but still pretty awesome.
