Maribor Day 2 Pictorial

Dan Atherton’s favorite movie is Best of the Best and here he channels his inner Eric Roberts to take him to fourcross victory.

Some artsy gondola action.

Cedric bringing some style to Santa Cruz.

Mick gives the Maribor course the thumbs-up.

Minnaar prepping his ultra-light carbon V10 for takeoff.

The Specialized triumvirate. Hill and Brendan are on new Demos for 2010 which seem to have taken some influence from the SX Trail.

Nice guy Needles.

Gwin has been looking incredibly fast in practice.

Salamanders love downhill. Newts are way more XC-oriented apparently.

Hill was consistent last year but will be no doubt looking for more outright wins this season.

Rachel is not an Eric Roberts fan and in fact was rooting for the Korean team the whole movie. Also check out the foam padding under her right hand.

Trek are a shiny, well PR’ed team and I think they would appreciate this shot.

Mondraker’s Damien Spagnolo is a name you’ll be hearing more of.
