I just spent the better part of 5 minutes hunting the UCI website for the DH Overall standings. Could not find what you posted. Did find the top 10 on RedBull's site, but that was all.

How can the overall not be a hard link on their site easy to find? All I could find was some UCI rider rankings based off of what?

He just replied to me. He had to BUY THAT CANYON SENDER!!!
AND....he has been riding Fox all season and it's got Rock Shox suspension. He had exactly 2 days to hop on a bike he'd never ridden and go full tilt to a 12th place qualification. I repeat @sspomer that is a 12th place qualifier on a bike he had ridden TWO days.
His race run was day 3 on a foreign rig.
I know our sport isn't wealthy, but you'd think some company out there would want to land him mid-season.

So was it my imagination or did Isaac Leivsonn do his race run on a Canyon Sender?

Careful what you wish for bitching like that. I can tell you what it gets you. Resort owners get tired of negative publicity by ungrateful bike riders who they really don't make much money from & decide not to put on a race.
You sound like the new generation of rider who hasn't had the distinch displeasure of riding some of the most truly difficult "tracks" you can imagine. Every single World Cup in the modern era is the stuff of infinite LEGEND compared to where this sport came from.
Mountain bikes are human powered and it's up to the human to find a way to win on whatever the course. Tracks will always vary in pitch & difficulty, but one thing you won't see is MORE venues if all you do is snivel and whine.
Even South Africa was a masterpiece of a track if you ever got to experience the roots of the sport and how far its come for us to even have a World Cup...not just a World Cup...but one on a live feed with paid commentators. Just a few short years ago, it was a nutter and a dream pilfering internet on Freecaster to even get us to REGISTER on the attention meter for real resorts & media.
That Leogang even wants to have us back just speaks to how wealthy that resort must be when it's not got DH riders there. That resort most likely loses money in hopes that they at least make up for in advertising attention in the future for the venue and community.

If they DIDN'T have a course there...you know what course we would have the riders race on?
NOTHING. No event. Because no one else put in that bid.

Yeah, I know my bike fail sounds pretty well and both times it sounded like a tire trying to eat through the rear end, not a saddle. Saddle rub is more of a bike fart.

MY guess is that it's because the French have always had the historically uptight and methodical, low key emotionless approach to racing and here are young, rowdy Frenchies Bruni, Vergier, Pierron, etc feeling proud of their country and rather swaggy. You have to keep in mind that Gwin has had a choke hold on DH for a while now and these guys are hungry to take down the quiet and precise powerful US rider.

Not to mention, they kind of look like frat guys..and we all know how a bunch of pretty boy frat guys get when they're liquored up - kidding...totally kidding

I'm wishing I could watch the Vital Slideshows on YouTube so I could cast them to my Roku.

I used to always try to make one of my last practice runs a "race run lite" to figure out where I was gonna get stiff or gassed for race day. Timed myself just to know a few points on what it would be like when the clock started.

You ride a lot different when you know you're being timed
