Little bit of tech from around the Champery World Champs pits
These guys can turn out anything in this truck.
Inside the new space age SRAM truck with Danny Hart, Alan Milway and SRAM man Torben(?)
Dirt/Norco accommodation might not be Penthouse but mechanic Ali Beckett's bike wash bucket is.
Aussie, Rhys Willemse on the 2012 Ancillotti Y. The twin top tubes have disappeared and been replaced by a single tube that from above looks like a "Y"
Fabien Barel also going for the raised front end.
Gee Atherton is running some longer linkage plates on the Commencal. Mechanic Stevie Bell told us they make the shock more linear.
Mick Hannah's Fury has a few new tweaks, raised front end, offset shock bushings and a K9 shock bearing.
Representing Ireland, Ben Reid and his Norco.
Josh Bryceland modelling the new 2012 Fox kit
Cam is also running a modified 7 speed set up. 34t up front and 11-19 (I think) on the rear
Like a lot of riders Cam has raised the front end for this track.
Mechanic Jack has added this little touch to Blenkis bike. 256 is the race plate he ran when he won at Schladming. (If you're wondering why the number is so high, it was something to do with a registration balls up)
Sam Blenkinsop's drilled out pedals
Cam Cole's Lapierre weighing in at 38lbs
Matti Lehikoinen's rig.
Steve Peat's World Cup steed. 34lbs on the scales.
