They should subtract time for stuff like this.

Who cares about podiums? Phil's nosebonk in the gnarliest rockgarden of the year is the stuff legends are made of!

Looks like Luca Shaw was 3rd fastest at split 4, might have a long sit in the hotseat tomorrow. On paper it's now Pompon who's 5 points ahead of Tracey in the overall!

I don't think anyone fully comprehends how loony Gee is. To come back from that sort of thing this fast and qualify? Gee is officially a synonym for the word "savage".

Stitches and straps for men's and women's #1. Charlie Harrison second fastest American, and Dakotah Norton 3rd fastest American. Gee is the definition of "Tough as Nails" qualifying in 41st. Rough go for team GT. And Keegan didn't start after that gruesome boulder 1,2...more

Not sure about Brook, but I know Connor just rolled out of the start hut and pulled off course to save his hand (banged it up at Andorra last weekend) since he's a protected rider. I'm guessing it's a similar thing for Brook?? They're both in finals tomorrow.

Right! I guess it also lets the timing folks get everything dialed ahead of qualis and finals. Otherwise, it's fluff.

@5:16, sounds like Gwin clipped the pole with the end of his handlebar.

These are so much better than any other DH media out there. It's like being at the race. I know the six minute version is "more boring" than the shorter, more intense Vital RAW of the past, but getting to see rider after rider trying the same section gives a much more...more

Man I really hope we'll get race footage from that rock garden. Gonna be (even more) gnarly at race speeds.

Fearon is one of my favorite riders. But A. 99% rider and B. they made the bike for him.

I think the only thing that can be taken from timed training is what kind of times will be required to be near the top later in the weekend...and it's a loose estimate at that.

No pressure on Lenzerheide, but it's going to be a bit tricky to top the racing from this past weekend. Are we finally going to have a repeat winner in the elites? What a season!
