Anybody here have any recommendations on a good place to stay near the event? I might actually be able to drop by Lenzerheide next weekend but I have no idea where to book.

Stefan Garlicki unofficial track preview..

holy crap, the cows! some close calls HAHA

MeteoSwiss (Swiss weather bureau) is forecasting a small amount of rain on Thursday and Friday (qualifying). Saturday is forecast to be clear and sunny.

There's a small weather formation in the swiss alps which seems to be going against the historic heatwave and droughts in nearby countries like Italy.

it appears Rachel Atherton will be trying to race, which is rad! so stoked to see her back on the track with the clock running!

i often wondered what the official "world cup racing mom" stats were and thanks to stikman, he let me know about regina stiefl in the 90s who dominated the circuit as a mother with two children. he mentioned that leigh donovan (his wife) raced world champs in 2010 (coming out retirement) and got 8th with their 5-year-old daughter in tow at the time. Kathy Sessler was a racing mom and there may be more. any additional insight would be awesome.

not trying to take away from any of rachel's achievements this weekend at all. i couldn't imagine dropping in for a WC DH run (terrifying on its own), and then hitting the pits to breastfeed your child. just thought this piece of history was pretty important.

Sessler was the original “mom” racer, had a sticker at Troy Lee Designs “One Fast Mutha”…but, Regina Stiefl was iconic, her 2 kids would come to the world cups, her husband Peter also was a World Cup racer. I believe Regina was 95’ Overall World Cup champion, she is a legend.
As Spomer said, be cool to be reminded of any other moms that raced at that level and super cool to even see Rachel sign up and give it a go, she is remarkable.
GO MOMS!

Made me think about Dads, I think Brendog making the finals last World Cup and Blenki are the 2 dads? We know Mick was a bad ass World Cup Dad…curious to know all the ‘parents’ that race World Cup level, I can’t imagine having that on my head.

I guess the breastfeeding part would be quite a challenge for you... Not to take away anything from the WC DH track part though tongue

Not DH, but Gunn Rita Dahle also kicked some ass after having children in XC.

|

7/7/2022 10:21 AM

breastfeeding would probably be more possible for me than hitting world cup dh speeds on a bike HAHAHAHA

|

7/7/2022 11:26 AM

I don't know about any other mom DH racers, but Danny Hart is a father of 1 1/2 kids (one on the way.)

I'm excited to see Rachel Atherton return to timed WC racing. I hope she exceeds her expectations and rides clean!

Danny Hart, Sam Hill, Ben Cathro, off the top of my head

I want to say that Sik Mik had his kids in tow for 2nd place at Worlds.
Did Peaty podium after he had kids?

|

Trouble Maker. Here to spit truth in the form of sarcasm.

Breastfeeding might present an additional nutrition/hydration challenge for a mom. Go, moms!

Peaty certainly won worlds and had at least a couple of world cup wins as a dad!

|

7/7/2022 3:18 PM

yes there is a Doco about it, Peaty finished worlds in Canberra 09 on that "mountain" and afterwards there is footage of him ringing his wife and son on a hilariously 2000's flip phone. Tugs at the heart strings.

|

7/7/2022 10:24 PM

Peaty won Ft. Bill "con hijos".

There are stories from the other side as well; Willow Koerber (Rockwell) tried to come back to XC World Cup racing after having a kid and ended up pulling the plug on it all after a few races.

With DH I think the mental aspect can outweigh the physical. I know I think about high risk situations much differently now that I have children.

Rachel is a legend even if she never races another WC, it will be interesting to see what happens.

Don't forget Sam Hill winning 2 WC rounds in 2014 at MSA and Meribel whilst being a dad!

Rachel currently 7th

7/8/2022 5:31 AM

Awesome, going to be a show tomorrow!

7/8/2022 5:42 AM

Current top 4 in Men Elite are all within 0.8 of a second during qualifying.

A couple of (current) top 10 observations:

-Awesome to see 2 US riders in the top 5
-5 Frenchies in the top 10
-7 High Pivots in the top 10
-5 Commencals in the top 10
-All 5 Frenchies are on High Pivots

|

7/8/2022 6:49 AM

There are a few protected riders out of top 60. Does uci take the top 60 plus protected or push the last few guys out of qualis? Grice into 57.

|

7/8/2022 7:00 AM

Imagine you're only 15 seconds slower than Amaury Pierron on a 3 minute World Cup track... And that will slot you into place 100 of qualifying..... Good lord these times are insane.

|

7/8/2022 8:31 AM

Laurie arrived at the finish line sans visor, I wonder where he crashed. Also, Charlie Hatton and Luca Shaw didn't get their times posted when they crossed the finish line. Did they do a re-run?

raw is up



i left this comment on that video page too, but isn't it incredible that even with literally hundreds of opportunities to screw something up on this tech, rough track, that the times are within milliseconds of each other? can't wait for tomorrow!

full quali results too - https://www.vitalmtb.com/news/news/RESULTS-Qualifying-Lenzerheide-World-Cup-Downhill,1439

7/9/2022 3:04 AM

Matthew Fairbrother (matthewfmtb) posted a video on his IG story of Finn Iles crashing pre quali run on the new off camber section and it looks like he absolutely cleaned his clock! He obviously still lined up and qualified afterwards but it looked like a heavy hit to the head. Not good to see considering he's already missed races this year from a concussion.

Finn reposted a different video of it on his story but the angle makes it look like less of a hit.

Tuhoto just beat Amaury's quali run from yesterday!
