DirtTV: Leogang World Cup Finals Practice

It must be wet in Leogang, Blenki is wearing gloves! First practice went down yesterday and what has been described as a bike park track in the past is now cutting and rutting up into a real downhill course.¬†Bryceland said “it’s rough and it’s rutted, it’s ‘flippin’ mint”. Brendan Fairclough has moved over to some bigger wheels and everyone will be looking for every second to fix their place in the 2013 overall.

Steve Smith has been practicing on both his 650b, aluminium Worlds bike and 26″ carbon DH bike. Which will he choose for qualifying?¬†Gee Atherton is looking comfortable and sticking with what he knows, his aluminium Fury as is Sister Rachel who will be looking to seal to overall tomorrow.

Qualifying goes down today at 12:30 UK time and you can check out the live timing here.

      Couldn’t agree more. Moaning about tracks like Leogang and PMB but I don’t remember seeing him on the top step at one of the steep / technical tracks either.

      Good rider but I can’t help feel that something in his head will always stop him winning.

      1. wycombephil

        And I’m not saying that just to get at him. I really do think he is a good rider but there is a difference between good riders and winners. That’s why the list of winners is so short. I think has more to do with what goes on in their heads than their riding skills.
