Lauren Rosser (Team Young Guns/Gravity) won a bronze medal last weekend at the Champery Switzerland 2011 UCI world championships in junior women’s downhill. After a whole week of training in dry and sunny weather on race day it rained hard making for difficult conditions on the steep track “when race time came it surprised me at how slick and gnarly it got. This was a challenging race and I focused on making it down the course. As the split times said I was back 14 seconds and made up all my time on the 2nd half of the course. I got to sit in the hot seat for a couple riders then got bumped to 2nd place and as the last rider came down I got bumped to 3rd! I was happy with my race I was trying to get down in one piece and I did” said Rosser.
Lauren also competed in the XC race earlier in the week “The weather was really nice on race day for Cross Country, perfect racing weather. The course was demanding and technical with steep climbs, my kind of course. I placed 27th in a race that I had higher expectations for but due to a Stomach flu the night before I was happy to finish. All in all it was a great trip with lots of memories and new friends made. Thank you Canadian Cycling, coaches, managers, mechanics, massage therapist, team mates and Shimano Commencal Young Guns. I hope to make many more memories like this.”

Team Young Guns/Gravity freerider and Camp of Champions coach Brendan Howey shreds some laps in the Whistler Bike Park, leading the way in front of Fogel.
Team Young Guns member Brendan Howey put the shovel to the dirt to create some island goodness. Check out this banger edit filmed and edited by Aaron Laroque.
“‘’The goal for the video was to spend eight days in a clearcut; building, camping when we needed to and shooting all the lines we could create. My goal personally was to step up the production value from past edits. I know Brendan wanted to build things that could showcase his riding and I think we achieved our goals and then some.’’ – Aaron Larocque
Congrats to MS-Evil/Gravity racer Brook MacDonald for keeping it consistent all season long! Brook finished in 9th at the muddy World Championships in Champery despite a crash! Nice work Brook!
Day 3 of the 2011 UCI mountainbike world championships in Champery was about preparing and waiting: riders were on the track for 1 ½ hours training and the rest of the day mechanics were working on the bike to get them world championships ready. The head mechanic Christian put a lot of effort into the sticker work of the world championship bikes of Brook, Look and Filip… at MS EVIL it’s not about having simple printed stickers, but about handmade custom sticker kits…
