Photo of the Day: Cedric Gracia vs. Mick Hannah

Here’s one from Monterey, California, last spring. Mick Hannah
(1) and France’s Cedric Gracia (8), battle for a split-second 
advantage on the Sea Otter’s dual slalom course. Mick was the
top qualifier, but Cedric beat him in the quarterfinals here, before
losing to Kyle Strait in the semis. Strait went on to win the overall. 
Cedric was out of action with a broken pelvis for a good part 
of the summer as a result of a bad crash at Val di Sole, Italy,
where he was practicing for a downhill World Cup event. The 
good news is that Cedric has started riding his bike again and
should be racing again next year.
