We've got that poster of him at Mammoth with the foot out and railing on our wall at the shop I work at!!!

Legend, icon or whatever you want to label him...he's that. And more. When I first discovered mountain biking in the mid-90's, he was one of the first elite racers I knew about and wanted to emulate.

No doubt!

It's crazy how the two main contenders both had a DQ and flat-tire end runs, but somehow managed to finish at the top of the field. It makes you wonder just how far ahead both would have been of the field without all the glitches they had throughout the season!

And not only did he walk away from that, but he also managed a 2nd in qualis - missing out on the win by a fraction of a second. Damn!!

I was going to criticize the video until I remembered that weed is legal in ColoRADo.

Now I'm not sure if he's Canadian...they never knock over garbage cans.

That aside, it was a sweet edit!

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.

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!

Yep...just saw that on his Instagram. Was hoping it wasn't the "something" part of my above post. Hopefully he's solid for finals. If so, he should be camping in the hot-seat for a spell.

I wonder if MacDonald is playing the weather card for finals or if he had a flat or something in the last segment. His splits were in-or-around the top-20 and he finished 73rd.

Hopefully they all get the same track as opposed to Lourdes...my fingers are crossed but I'm not going to hold my breath!

It's a pity they didn't fly Ratboy in just to sing with the accordion guy again. It just doesn't sound the same without him!

Awesome! That last riding clip was rad - so steep that the dog was like "you're riding down that? Aw, hell no!"

I wonder if there were any UFO reports in that area when they were filming this.

I couldn't tell you, but I'm just glad they showed it. If there was one thing I wanted from this episode, it was a Marshy rear wheel slam. They more than delivered!!
