    Minnar was awesome on this track last year.

    I’m picking Gee and Rachel FTW, but GM is going to be hard to beat here and for the overall title, the pretenders like Gwin and co still have yet to show the pointy end when the pressure mounts, still early days but this round should show the full metal jacket.

    If the weather is nice its going to be a hell of a race.

  5. dirt dodger

    or if its wet VonDH – it was a cracker last year too. cannot wait to watch this ! I reckon Sam is going push along a bit on this track. Hope Peaty gets a podium though – preferably top step for him or Gee.

    parts look unbelievably good! the middle seems a slog though….

    What does the ‘Downhil Rider Intro >>> Top 5 Women then Top 5 Men’ mean on the schedule for Sunday?

  8. binturong

    hey maverick, how is gwin a pretender? did you not watch WC round 1 in SA and see the split at Ft. Bill before he crased in the woods, and still managned to pull a podium? oh and this is only his 3rd full season of dh. wow hes pretending to be incredible very very well.

    Nat, just what it says on the tin, they’ll probably roll across the finish arena and the Austrian (please let it be Dan and Chris) compare will say: “Ladies and Gentlemen…please welcome…all the way from Llanygynyog…Rachel Atherton” etc

    brycleands crashes were gnarly

  11. maverickdh05

    bintrong might have come across wrong I don’t mean hes not ready or capable I’m a fan of his and loved how hes started the season, I hope he’s on target, definitely got the speed and maybe the fastest and fittest this year, just saying that the real hard test comes now with pressure, I mean pretenders in the best way not negatively.

    Its about this time when you see who handles pressure best its a short season and consistency pays off not just being the fastest, something Gee and GM did incredibly well last year which could have gone either way.

    Let it rumble.
