Calm Before the Storm: Val d'Isere Saturday

Every World Cup seems to trump the one before with drama and intensity. Val d'Isere is no different. The downhillers get one last day of practice before race day in the French Alps dawns. Will it be rain or shine? Only the mountains know the answer.

    Surely these guys would be better off just picking up one of those new base layer w/ minimal body armor built-in thingies? There's NO WAY that could be less comfortable than duct-taping cardboard boxes to yourself. Of course, as a protest, Maxi-Pads and Kellogg's are way better... ;-)

    That trials shot looks like Wentz. He's wearing some stripes meaning he's good at something so it's obviously not. Looks like he's got muscles too so definitely not. Got the right shorts though.
