I went down the rabbit hole of PR's, communications, of all this, I don't see any ties to BR or VanGuard, where did you see that?

As I sat at the party pool with Palm after that race, I said 'if you woulda worn the damn skin suit, you would have won' and he told me he would have been so uncomfortable and looked like a twat, that he probably would have crashed...so 'would have' ... more »

Myriam's splits were not up on Vali's were they? I think maybe 1 and 2, but not near the end-before the crash if memory serves me correctly.

And....those 3 races where Luca Shaw was fastest qualifier, last one down and he flatted in one, crashed in the other two and I am pretty sure had fastest splits at the time too. Heartbreaking.

Neko chainless Norway run was pretty damn impressive.

Ohh ya, palmer in Sweden....I stood at that finish area, that one was brutal.

Sam's VDS run, without question or Peaty's Les Gets world champs. Of course, on a biased note haha, my better half, Leigh Donovan-she went to 1996 World Champs in Australia as the reigning world champ from 1995. A controversial race in 95' as Leigh wins ... more »

This situation still burns me up...and i'm old, been around DH racing since the dawn of time, NORBA before USAC ownership was a hillbilly organization, but, they cared about MTB racing and cared about DH (and slalom) but they were short staffed and underfunded ... more »

Peaty was 9 times a top 5 worlds rider and 5 times a medalist-so I'd say Peaty's track record as a world championship caliber rider was very well aligned for a win.

I think the only way to get another spot is when the world champs is the host nation, of which we are not. But then again, I am no USAC/UCI expert.

Reply to Gwin not representing US at World Championships? (WTF?) 8/8/2021 7:46 AM

Gutted for Austin Dooley, what a complete cluster. The strange thing is, I assumed all athletes know they have to petition for spots if not automatic qualifiers (and automatic qualifiers I think is some heavy criteria? National Champ, or podium at a ... more »
