Here’s a Champery sheep farmer who I met on the foot path from town to the race venue, he knows something is going on round the corner to do with bicycles but wasn’t too interested when I started talking about the above statistics.

Featured in this post

  1. Gazza

    is the Worlds men only?

  2. jonzo

    It’s easy to forget just how dominant Nico was!
    What happened to Gachet?

  3. ddmonkey

    Those farmers love mountain bikers round there. I got lost on the Passport du Soleil this year near Champery and an irate farmer fired a rocket at me! Get orf moy laaaaannnndddd!!!!!!!!!!!! (Je ne sais pas ca en Francais)

  4. NickH

    Crazy to see how much NZ, UK and SA riders dominate the top 15 world rankings… but who are the riders ranked 4th and 7th who aren’t on the start list?

  5. NickH

    … ok so Brosnan (7th) is a junior and no Steve Smith (4th) through injury?

    http://www.uci.ch/templates/BUILTIN-NOFRAMES/Template3/layout.asp?MenuId=MTUxNjU&LangId=1

  6. Eoin

    Smith is #4 out due to injury, not sure about number 7, Brosnan maybe? he was 8th overall in the WC, but is still a junior, maybe that messed up the rankings?

    Also why are the juniors being timed in order of fastest first? Seems a bit odd.

  7. billy

    @Gazza, soz, not sure why the women didn’t appear first time…ladies info is up now!

  8. ross

    whats in that mans pipe do ya think?

  9. chaz

    feel mad old now with them names up there, mike king, tomac, giove, furtado, god that was a while ago, feels like yesterday

  10. Bruno

    Oh man.. looking that list…. i miss so much that french beauty NOLVENN LE CAER.. The Hottest racer ever in the history of DH MTB man.. that french blond would put today´s World champs paddock Go Nuts.. Pleeeease LE CAER come back 4 Us :D

  11. Spooky

    Ooofty, how consistently was Pascal on the podium back in the day? Awesome rider!

  12. Bruno

  13. Rick T

  18. Frog eater

    Stats are clear : Vouilloz is gonna win again !
    Well, maybe not…

  19. TimBud

    Don’t forget about Sari Jorgensen, Bruno.

  20. Tim

    I never realised how many times Pascal has been on the Worlds Podium!
    I counted 4! I would have never have thought that. Hope he has a good run.

  21. Andy

    Sari Jorgensen, the only reason i used to watch he womens downhill.

  22. Bruno

    @TimBud : Oh Yeah Sari Jorgenson with her Badass rock n´roll style, she was very hot too man.. back in those days we had some chicks in Downhill who were HOT ´n SEXY.. and Missy Giove, the girl was so freaking Crazy loooool

  23. Bruno

    today´s Hotties.. Micayla Gatto and Petra Bernhard

  24. Ross

    Good stats, bit of 95 world champs downhill action:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZ7iI92RAAo

  25. Jarno

    Maybe it’s time for Greg to get his second gold medal? He already has 7 medals total. If you count out Nico and Sam Hill (3 golds – 1 silver – 2 bronzes) Greg has had most success in mens downhill in worldchamps with all the medals South Africa has ever had (1-3-3). Besides last time worlds were at Swizerland he won!

  26. zac

    did a search on LE CAER, as i wasn’t sure what she looked like. nice !
    however i found a german dirt site. dunno if this is allowed !
    http://www.dirtmag.de/riders_nolvenn.html
    even has an ‘adult’ section/

  27. hakey

    Surely no one can rule out Emmeline Ragot recent blossom as the # 1 hottest female on the tour right now!!
    Awesome rider too, this year at champerey has to be a track for her.
