It's been a long day for Flipper what with the 4x ending at something like 9.30pm, add to that the fact that it's been raining and I've been hassling him for photos. Well I did post him a six pack of 4x so hope he's got that.

Greg Minnaar will it be his day? Or will one of his Santa Cruz Syndicate team mates stand atop the podium tomorrow? Nathan Rennie was quickest in timed runs 1 hundredth of a second ahead of Steve Peat. Given the Aussie passion here it would be a brave man to bet against "Beast" over Mr Min and Peaty. Or will it be Sam Hill who overcomes his dislike for the course and all but clinches the World Cup before his favourite course - Schladming?
