Postponing a race is never an option. The costs involved in moving the race will bankrupt the organizers. The rule is simple - you enter the race, you take what is given to yoyu the track, the weather, everything!!
If you postpone an event, even by a few hours, half the fans and riders will complain and if you don't , the other half will.
Fayolle had a brilliant run. He was a top 20 qualifier and his final time was damn good - much much much faster than any couch hugging DH rider. He even won by a better than fair margin. He was the fastest rider on the day!! He has my respect.
