Again I don't think you follow the sport. Gray took a wrong turn on the descent and still climbed back up and went back to the trail and won. Not sure you can say Max would beat Gray an any short mountain event no matter the technicality as Gray has literally dominated him every single race for years. Explain the other 20 previous races Gray beat him. Guess they too weren't technical enough or didn't have any downhill? Don't discredit the man, you can be a fan of Max and still give guys who are better their credits!
