Go behind the scenes with the Specialized Racing Downhill Team at the Northwest Cup in Port Angeles, Washington, as the guys hit the road for the first time in 2013. Team riders Aaron Gwin, Troy Brosnan, and Mitch Ropelato, used the Northwest Cup terrain to get early season race training aboard their Demo 8s, while veteran World Cup Wrench Jacy Shumilak dialed in their machines for the rigors of the upcoming season.
Specialized would like to thank Scott Tucker and Casey Northern for their help and hospitality while in Port Angeles.
