Here's some GoPro helmet cam footage of reigning World Cup downhill champion Aaron Gwin that'll make you check that you haven't pressed fast-forward by mistake.

Trek World Racing's Gwin hit the big time in 2011, winning a record five World Cup races before capturing the overall title with a round to spare. The video below is from the downhill race at the Southridge USA Challenge in Fontana, California in November 2011.
