Amaury definitely looks back on form! The lower woods will likely decide the race and after last years slip and slide it's going to be another roll of the dice who can hold on.

Weather looks like it could go either way with at least some amount of rain guaranteed. Leogang dirt (in the open) does dry impressively fast.

Heard Melanie Chappaz was stretchered out. I wonder what happened. Hope it's nothing serious.

There was a guy at the bike shop who I didn't know his name. He went by the nickname Nutsack.
Months in, I asked why. He tore his sack open on his BMX bike in the middle of downtown stuntin'.

Pulled his pants down right there in front of the skate/BMX crew.
A testicle was hanging down outside his sack.
He touched it.
It sucked back up in like it was an alien.

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

I watched the full Bernard Kerr LSD from Day 1 practice. Said he slammed so hard in practice, his entire left leg was numb.

I can't stand to watch his full length video's, but that one is amazing.
He did a boatload of practice runs and it's insane how fast he got going.

Not aware of the setup this year but they did use metal poles in some areas at last years event. I thought they were a hazard at the time. They really should have a safer option where the pole gives way easily in a crash.

Moment of silence for Flo's scrotum.

LOL - slideshow is up - https://www.vitalmtb.com/photos/features/2021-Leogang-World-Cup-Downhill-Race-Slideshow,13408/Slideshow,0/sspomer,2

we'll be doing one big post-race show from now on. if you listened to their "3 faves" slideshow, you can hear how haggard they are at races. with track walk video and RAWs covering the bulk of the action and Instagram showing everything nearly instantly, the daily slideshow format is just too gnarly anymore. this show is 101 photos long, so you'll have plenty of homework.

Fair enough. Those boys work hard and aren't getting any younger. I just really missed my high-quality free content from all over the world. Now I just have more to look forward to at the end of the race.

Thanks for all your hard work.

Awesome work as always Vital.

But I would say (trying to be as constructive as possible): please do more "top 3 photos" and short interviews or stories from the photogs during the training/qualies ahead of the race.

I love the slideshows, and clearly as this is the one format that the other site hasn't ripped you off on (yet), it must be the hardest one to pull off. But, that being said getting a huge slideshow after it is all done and dusted is a bit less interesting to me than even short little snippets of content from John, Sven, Boris and co. while the hype is at fever pitch ahead of the main race.

Let me re-iterate again that Vital's RAWs and interviews have been way ahead the pack yet again so far.

Slideshow isn't playing for me? Tested in latest Chrome and Firefox... rest of Vital is working fine for me.

Ya i agree. I find the post race slideshow much less interesting than qualies and RAW as I normally watch the race. Cant see the qualies or basically anything prior to the race so this fills an enormous gap.

You guys rock though, and so do the photogs, just wanted to give you feedback

The Final full slideshow is great please don't get rid of that. Maybe the final slide show can tell the whole story of the event and it takes a couple days to come out.

Then for track walk, practice and qualies you guys do the top 3 from those days!

Vital for the win! The "other guys" for the bin!
