This could potentially be a sign of a sticking or seized brake caliper qhich in turn will not only cause the noise being heard but will also cause the vehicle to pull while applying the brake. This will also allow the caliper to groove the rotor in what appears to look similar to a vinyl record. I think the best answer would be to get the brake system diagnosed so that further damage and expense ia jot accumulated and/or the brake system does not fail causing an accident or much worse. I can almost bet once diagnosed and repaired the pull will no longer be present.

Road debris kicked up when the tires roll over will sometimes get stuck between the pad and rotor and will scour the rotor. Same thing happened to me right after I did a brake job with new pads and rotors. Other than cosmetic eye-sour, functionally it doesn't seem to affect braking.

Another thing to do is stop slipping it in to neutral when going down the mountain, let the engine help the brakes.

Thread is over 10 years old, I think the op may have fixed it by now

so instead of having to replace easy brakes, you will now have to replace rings and rod bearings

The guy rolls down the mountain over 120 km/h using only brakes to control the speed? And those brakes don't overheat?!?

After ten years of that, I hope he didn't run out of brakes at the bottom
