Alloy frame, sun tour fork, one off shock, trick stuff brakes, kend tires. . . Part of me thinks the big manufacturers and big sponsors are not happy with the way the race shook out.

@mfoga you are correct this time, but what about Leogang last year? The course was getting considerable faster and dryer as the day went on. Sorry but if you are worried about weather towards the end of the day, qualify last. If you want to run on a dryer faster track cause it's gonna rain earlier and the sun is going to come out later, qualify first. Or maybe just ride your damn bike as fast as you can for both qualifying and the race and just hope for the best like everyone in the Elite Men field seem to be doing.

They do have a choice as to where they start, when they qualify.

Should "God" allow life to start knowing we will all one day die? From the sound of things no one knew exactly when the bad weather was going to start. Sucks for the top Elite Men qualifiers for sure, but rain could have started an hour earlier OR later. It is what it is. They are just going to have to want it that much more now, for the rest of the season, if they want a good result in the overall. Just my 2¢.

Sorry but out of all the lame excuses I've read so far as to why riders don't like this track, you are going to sit at your keyboard and complain about flow, When just last year, the faster person down the track was a guy who's chain broke a few pedal ... more »
