Whoa. I hit up David Parrett while he was still at Thomson and asked for that singular change of making sure the cable is clamped instead of mashed by the set screw. Oh sure, it was an obvious request made probably by tons of folks, but I like to think I was the mastermind. hah

I wanna see the photo of Thirions bike after his run. Word on the street is the frame was bent and the suspension link broke as well.

So you are perfectly fine with a World Cup racer pitching a tear tantrum a foot from the finish line and just laying down right there in front of everyone and pouting? And no, she DID NOT have even the slightest of chances of winning lest it monsoon rain immediately following her run.

You cannot be upset about something that improbable. It makes no sense.

I would fully understand if she were injured or knocked for a loop and doing it. My only concussion was on my moto. I insisted that a neighbor was racing my bike that day instead of me. So, that I have a ton of empathy for.

What I don't understand is how she could be so mentally delusional to think she would even come close on winning...or to lay down like a baby and cry.
Now, if her mental capacity to stand up from taking a concussive blow to the head was why she collapsed, I could "understand". Capece?

Every wheel I own looks like that first run. He must be an absolute hack like me.

Any word on the female rider who clipped the tree with her helmet, but then slammed her head on a rock at the end of the fall? She got up, finished, handed her bike to an official at the finish and then immediately collapsed. I saw a glimpse of her on the video feed. An injury report on all those unfortunate riders would be appreciated

Unfamiliar with that word. I know there is the sweeper prior to finals. What's a forerunner, Other than being an overpriced Toyota

Awesome that Peaty is there, but how is he on track during practice? Is he an alternate?

No one can ever have another custom bike from this moment forward. Should just make them all either black or white and no brands or anything, just label them "BIKE". The tires man...even the TIRES! Red hubs to be the center of the bullseye. You name it. No stone left unturned. Finale!

I want to thank the author for the title that doesn't give a hint as to the end. On the edge wondering what kind of ending I was about to watch.
That gap is stupid silly.

I understand EWS is brutal, but it's not when compared to World Cup DH. World Cup DH racers are proof of that. They made the switch to enduro and have dominated Enduro wire to wire. Hill is injured, still on the mend and laying it down in Enduro top ... more »

You're kidding? He's 31 and Minnar is 34, 3 years younger than a guy who has had multiple wins over the past 2 years. Don't mistake injury for age. He's got a kid and it makes you wiser. If he wants to win World Cups again, he will when he is 100% again. ... more »
