ALL OR NOTHING - Qualifying, Val di Sole World Cup Downhill

View as: Slideshow | One Page

Gee Atherton Velcro'd his hand to his handlebar to ride today. Aaron Gwin crashed in practice, re-injured his hand and may not race. Myriam Nicole hurt her back and won't race. The Junior Men and Women had hero conditions before the heavens opened up and cried tears of laughter all over the Elite Women and Men as they tried, with marginal success, to stay upright during qualifying at the World Cup Downhill in Val di Sole. That cage fightery guy we spoke of yesterday smooth-talked everyone into thinking he was on the mend and willing to behave only to lash out violently just before the post-intervention hugging began. Viva World Cup DH!

The audio interviews are in this slideshow, like normal, with their assigned photo. Some interviews are pretty long. If you'd prefer to listen to them in the background, view the show in "one page" format (using the link in the upper left above), visit this page, press play on the Qualifying audio and come back to cruise the photos. You can also listen to the interviews in our podcast channel on your favorite podcast app. Just search for "Vital MTB" and it should show up.

Sven Martin, @maddogboris, Dan Hearn and Lee Trumpore barely make it out alive.
