It looks like #29ers have well & truly arrived in DH. Do you think we'll see a 29er on the podium at the next DH World Cup?

Wait, but the internet told us just last week that 29ers were unfair because short guys can't ride them?

Danny Hart had leg & arm extension surgery immediately after Lourdes. Same torso, but there was only a limited amount of time the doctors had...

Are the extensions carbon or titanium? This could be the next big upgrade for me.

Sometimes this industry just can't help itself - DH Bike sales (and the industry as a whole) are already suffering.

After the race this weekend or Ft. Bill, when 29ers leave 650b in the dust....no one in their right mind will be plunking down 4k-9k for a 650b DH bike that will lose over 1/2 it's value as soon as it leaves the showroom floor or warehouse.

Do you really think people will go thru that just to Downhill faster?

Yeah and then he tries to play it down in that interview like we should all get a life and just ride our bikes and not worry about 29ers in DH but it's basically like somebody just put a bigger engine in their race car and now WE SHOULDN'T WORRY ABOUT IT? If he's not worried how about not racing the big wheels, since it's no big deal YEAH RIGHT.

that can have no meaning what so ever, firstly, the route can be a little different and faster, or the track can be in better shape and faster.
second , most pro riders don't use strava there, so you don't have an up to dat picture of the times, and even the ones that you have are just a few

practice times from today - danny and gee up there, but greg and marcelo not on 29ers and don't seem like they're much off the pace than they may normally be?

Finn Iles wins juniors with a 4:40 pretty gnarly considering Gee's 4:39 in seeding

Bit bummed Tahnee didn't take the win on her first race on the new bike.

What happened to Rachel, she was there right?

5/14/2017 9:51 AM

Harts won from Bruni.

|

5/14/2017 9:58 AM

Danny was on fire in the first split for seeding, more than 3 seconds up on Gee! Loic was also faster than Gee at the first split.

|

5/14/2017 10:07 AM

Final results are in from the Fort! Hart wins, 8 seconds faster than Gee's fastest qualifier. Gee and Rachel did not take part in the finals apparently, we don't know why at this point.

Damn... Loic only a second and a half back.

Despite the track, I am super looking forward to the WC race in June. Gonna be good racin'!

|

5/14/2017 10:35 AM

What happened to Gee?

|

5/14/2017 10:41 AM

Gee and Rachel flat, crash, or just not race?
Nice to see Danny and Loic are in top form and ready for battle at the next WC. Can't wait to see Minnaar and Gwin mix it up with them.

|

5/14/2017 11:16 AM

To put the result into perspective Danny won by 1.8 seconds over Gee last year, 1.4 over Loic this year.

You could be onto something Woo, 29er bum runners/ass patches. The market for these should never hit rock bottom once DH 29ers flood the scene. Rubbin's Racin'.

Gee definitely dislocated his hip:

Man, it'd be pretty sweet to see what Gee would do if he'd go a season without some gigantic crash.

That's a shame. He seemed fit, fast and seemed to have a much better attitude going into this season, a bit more relaxed. The last few season DH fans have slagged him a big for his bad attitude, myself included, but in all the interviews so far this season he just seemed like a happier person. Hope he heals up well and keeps it up.
