Who Scrubbed It Best? Leogang World Cup Poll

The classic high-speed, left-hand step down hip on the Leogang World Cup DH course is a scrubber's dream. Most riders turn the bars, try to stay low and carry mental speeds into the landing. But a few riders actually lean the bike, wash out the rear a bit, spray some dirt and stay extra low, dissipating upward momentum to save a precious .001 here or there. It could mean the difference between points and places come race time.

Sven Martin camped out at the hip today to capture the steeze and decided it was time to vote between four of the nastiest slip-sliders of the day. Finn Iles, Mitch Ropelato, Hugo Frixtalon and Dakotah Norton. See the shots, place your vote. It's as important as race day...almost. -photos by Sven Martin

Who Scrubbed It Best in Leogang

Honorable Mentions

Matt Walker getting nasty.

Jerome Caroli. Not the scrubbiest, but hot damn, look at how casual those hands are! He also went from plate #120 and qualified in 57th. Solid.
