BMX Olympian Switches Gears to Win Downhill

Riding a prototype Yeti downhill mountain bike, BMX Olympian Jared Graves won the Downhill and 4X Oceania Mountain Bike Championships in Thredbo (Australia) over the weekend.

“The cross over back isn’t that hard as I’ve been riding downhill for ten years. It’s a different kind of fitness though and that definitely is an issue,” said Graves.
