That's right, the ultimate race of the 2014 DH season, both literally and figuratively speaking is upon us. It's the World Champs, and as any race fan knows, this special race means all kinds of special stuff for the bikes and the racers too. There are no points for second place here, but the least you can do is look the part. We'll keep you up to speed with our finds as the week goes on - feel free to post up any gems you stumble across too!

To start us off, all eyes will be on Ratboy this week, and he'll proudly rep the Union Jack colors as he tries to get it done for the Queen.

Sir Peaty offered up this little gem from the squid race in Hafjell. The finest of the world's collective MTB media duked it out for free beer and bragging rights. Looks like the tie we predicted in OTB actually happened in the media race, although the jury is still out on Sven's claim.

Results:
1. Ariel Lindlsey
2. Nigel Page & Sven Martin (tie Sven claims)
3. Knut Lokas

Speaking of "Worlds special stuff", isn't it Sunday that will be decided who - between Joe Bowman and Boris - gets the other's name tattoed on themselves?
I'm pretty sure I recall them engaging in a season-long Instagram follower-race

Apparently Martin Maes is there representing Belgium, I didn't even know the Belgian cycling union was still active in MTB.
(Proof that they are actively ignoring my requests for a license)
