Probably watch the replay on Sunday afternoon… can’t wait!


#3

Practice runs:

CRAP! Those are some huge lines they’re riding!


#4

Can’t wait to watch these guys throw themselves off cliffs… much respect for their skills. I’m pulling for the Claw!


#5

Too bad for BS but still :canada: wins!


#6

Whaaaaat a day. Beautiful


#7

Sick lines and talent for sure…

Any body else miss the built features they had at the previous location?


#8

Just finishing watching the show… man, Bizet got robbed on that first run… 9th?? really? with a front flip and a double back?..

Can’t wait to see the second round!


#9

Agreed on the scoring for Bizet’s run, seemed way off to me.


#10

Love that French guy, he’s my spirit animal! :laughing:

We really enjoyed watching the event, and some of our guests enjoyed watching us as we watched it. Incredible riding! The POV footage they showed during the event had me cringing. Congrats to Sorge, and everyone who competed - just making it to the bottom safely was amazing. So glad there were no major injuries.

Those POV clips… OMG! Excuse me, I need to change my shorts…


#13

Am I mistaken but I don’t recall seeing a single flat, or chain off during the competition or practice. Was this the year of the mechanic / tech FINALLY?


#14

Seems as though technology has finally prevailed for the most part… same scenario during the UCI World Cup series as well.


#15

Still a lot of snapped chains and flats in the WC Downhill tho. Some of the top riders have had to finish their runs chainless or on a rim with a tube hanging off the back wheel.
