Downieville Throwdown

Words by Giant and Damian Breach | Images by Giant

Giant riders came out in full force to conquer the 2012 Downieville Classic.

In the end, Giant Factory Off-Road pros Carl Decker and Kelli Emmett piloted their Anthem X Advanced 29ers to dominating victories in both the XC and DH — and walked away once again as All-Mountain World Champions. But racing was only part of the action, as riders and fans converged in this idyllic town in Northern California to enjoy a weekend of festivities.
