Properly fast, as DH tracks should be. Looks awesome!

Now that the whip-off's gone corporate, maybe it's time for 'chainless-timed-training-world-champs' in Switzerland? Care to lend us some beer money, Gordo?

Monday at work, the phone rings, "Do you sell those DH Bikes that can win WC races without chains?" (Reply) Yes, yes we do. LOL.

i guess now you only need to give away the cranks since the rest of it doesnt do help you go faster

A few interesting facts I like to nerd about:
- This is Minnaar's first world cup win in 3 years. His last win was at the 2012 season opener in Pietermaritzburg.
- Martin Maes' qualifying speedtrap was by far the fastest of the day (all categories combined), with a whopping 66kph. In case you're still doubting his massive balls an skillset, the speedtrap is located right before an enormous wide berm which must have been covered in mud.
- The men's qualifying and finals fastest first splits were achieved by respectively Sam Dale and Matt Simmonds, 2 of the biggest guys on the circuit. Pretty interesting, considering most of the time, the fastest at split 1 is a smaller, uber-talented guy (guys like Danny Hart, Sam Hill, Troy,...). You'd expect the rain to only make it worst for heavier riders.
- Steve Smith's comeback from injury wasn't as flamboyant as most of us had hoped, with a 25th place. Not quite as good as last year's comeback (on the same track), which was a 6th place. We all know Stevie can handle a bit of rain, being from BC, and having won his first world cup on a muddy Hafjell track. Which makes me wonder: is he still not quite physically ready or did he just have to dust off the racing cobwebs?
More facts to come when my boss isn't around.
