THE SYNDICATE – Episode 5 – Ratty Wins at Mont-Sainte-Anne!
A healthy Rat is a fast Rat! After getting up close and personal with a tree in Ft. William, and dislocating his finger in Lenzerheide, Josh was on the hunt for his first World Cup win since WIndham, last year. Despite dry weather earlier in the week, the rain got turned on just before qualifiers, and hung around for race time, making the rough and rocky track all the more challenging. The racing was incredibly tight, with Josh beating Loic Bruni by just two-tenths of a second, and Troy Brosnan by a quarter-second — super close, and even closer for a track as long as Mont-Sainte-Anne. Greg Minnaar finished just behind Brosnan for fourth place, which nets him some valuable World Cup points. Greg’s sitting in third overall, just 70 points behind Aaron Gwin, heading in to next week’s race in Windham, followed by Val Di Sole to close out the season.
Watch this week’s episode to see Ratty singing on the podium, maple syrup tasting, and Greg’s dreamy steaks.

Inside Specialized Racing – Episode 8: Mont-Sainte-Anne
In this episode of Inside Specialized Racing, we follow Aaron Gwin and Troy Brosnan as they race North America’s most historic track, Mont-Sainte-Anne. For 25 years, DH racers have been coming here to test their meddle, and nearly every year, the track changes to push riders to their limits. Ski slope, technical single track, natural features—Mont-Sainte-Anne has it all, and with wet conditions for this year, it’s that much harder.
The team refused to be intimidated, however, with Troy taking the qualifying round for only the second time in his career. Ultimately, he went on to take Third on the day, narrowly getting edged off the top step by just .22
