Vital RAW: Hafjell, Norway World Cup Downhill Qualifying 9

ON THE GAS! Josh Bryceland is under the impression that the UCI deducts time for tricks and there is plenty of ass-hauling as Hafjell World Cup downhill practice and qualifying come at you head-on!

    I wish that I could run around the pits with a tire pressure gauge. There's no way that they're rallying those rock gardens at that speed with the usual rediculously low pressures that they usually run.

    Not that the rest of those guys looked like hacks, but Gee made that rocky section seem not-so-rocky after all.

    edit: not him… my bad

    THAT'S who that was @ 1:10! I tried to pause as he was going by, but the number didn't resemble a "1"...it looked more like "1-7-something". lol

    Kind of looks like it might be 112 - Mathew Studdard. Whoever that was, they gave my eyes blisters.

    Thanks for the screen-shot.

    Yeah that's Matty Stuttard. He's an up and coming UK rider. Always quick, he was 2nd through the Mnt Snt Anne speed trap in qualifiers.

    Seriously. Sounded like a fighter-jet roaring by @ 1:10 - heck, even looked like one!!
