Mont-Sainte-Anne World Cup Photo Epic

The Kona Gravity World Cup Team is coming off another weekend of impressive riding, great results and not surprisingly, a little adversity. This is, after all World Cup DH racing. Anything goes. With the weather wreaking havoc on one of the circuit’s more iconic courses, Connor Fearon, Andrew Crimmins and Tegan Molloy laid it all on the line. Spencer Paxson of Kona’s Endurance team was also on hand to race the World Cup XC. To give you a snippet of what went down in the rock, root and mud strewn tracks of southern Quebec, we dive behind the lens of Duncan Philpott.
