The coolest mountain biking video you'll see this week



July's Missoula XC, and the winning run by Missoula native Sam Schultz, offered locals a rare chance to geek out on professional mountain biking. While we're still basking in those dirt-stained memories, Sam's moved on to other events — like last weekend's UCI World Championships in Switzerland.

Schultz finished 35th in the cross-country event, which put him fourth best among American riders. Not bad considering more than 90 of the world's best started the race. But whatever Sam did paled in comparison to the winning downhill run by Britain's Danny Hart. You can watch it below in a video clip that's gone viral as much for Hart's riding as the for announcers' losing their minds.
