Round one of the Downhill World Cup series has been run and won and much of the talk surrounded the move to 29-inch wheels.

The Santa Cruz Syndicate was the first big team to roll up to the start line of a World Cup round with the big wheels and since then Mondraker has come out of the closet with Danny Hart racing a round of the British Downhill Series aboard a 29er.
