Dak or Luca & I'd be stoked.
Maybe a tie down to the 100th.

I'd love to see Dak get a win, he's done so many hard yards to get to this point, but man he's gonna have to really bring some speed.
Les Gets, the French riders always step it up a notch, so my money's on Amaury.

183 Elite Men

46 Elite Women

Could make for an interesting race, especially if they don't get to practise in those conditions.

Wow, that's a lot of junior men. Not a fan of reducing the field but almost 400 people on a loamy, muddy track is a lot. If you are fighting for 100th place in junior, you should maybe not race a World Cup. The point system doesn't work well. Not sure which races are eligible but it looks pretty tough from North America but it's probably not competitive enough for European-based athletes.

looking at the entry list prepping for fantasy, there are 17 junior men and only 1 junior woman who haven't yet raced a WC this year. a good handful from south africa. sven mentioned worlds team riders probably getting up and into europe to get their feet wet, but even without these new riders, still over 100 junior men which is a lot!

You're 500 random people better than me at it if that's any consolation.

Les Gets Fantasy is open.

https://www.vitalmtb.com/fantasy/2024/les-gets

Bear in mind the UCI still has not submitted the official qualifying start list which we usually build from. the Les Gets game is opened with the "Entry" list. some of the riders you can choose may not be racing and there could be riders missing from the list. when the start list is made available, we'll add/delete accordingly. if you don't pick a team until closer to the race (after qualis/semis), none of this will matter : )

a Lyrik is up for grabs this week!

Why do you think the second berm was skipped?  My tin foil hat says they are doing everything to keep runs under 3 minutes which is a bummer.

No Laurie for the Syndicate as his health issues persist. Is Nina recovered yet?
Anyone else missing?

From Lalyche TV it looked awful anyway. But I wonder why they changed the section before Wilson's jump.

quali start lists were sent out this morning finally. fantasy has been updated. all riders in the race were already in there, but if a racer was not on the quali start list, they've been marked as "out" which has a medical flag. doesn't necessarily mean they're hurt, but they aren't racing, so def someone you don't want to pick : )
