Add in the Kiwis and it is currently 30 from 40. That is just mind blowing really.

With all the major players having done their runs, this statistic suggests, well, I am not sure what yet but ... 25 of the top 40 are British or French. For a sport with representation from all over the globe, it suggests that the upbringing of the riders in those two countries is doing something right when it comes to learning how to handle raw rocks, steeps and roots.

http://www.uci.ch/mountain-bike/ucievents/2014-mountain-bike-uci-mountain-bike-world-cup-presented-by-shimano/162153114/widgets/live-timing-165840/ The UCI site has been redone. Go and take a look. It is easy to find if you go to the Mountain Bike section.

Champion's Bike: Brandon Semenuk's Trek Ticket S
´╝ásithbike: I disagree with the first half of your reply. If everyone believed that we may have fewer people continually buying the latest and greatest equipment, instead they may spend more time training, practising and developing their skills. That is my point. That bike has not made Semenuk the great rider he is, and neither will it make you, or me, any better. The second half, I concur. Get out there and try it on the bike you have now! Personally my closer to 50 than 40 body is not looking at emulating anything anyone does at Joyride!

Champion's Bike: Brandon Semenuk's Trek Ticket S
No coveting. There is no point in telling anyone anything about this bike. It doesn't matter what components are on it, how its suspension is set up, what processes were gone through to arrive at the geo and sizing or how it is stiffer yet more forgiving, sharper yet more flexible to your style; none of it matters. The bottom line is that you will not be ANYwhere closer to emulating Semenuk were you to have this bike. No Sir. So just forget it. Semenuk could ride any of the bikes under any of the competitors and still win the next 2 Joyrides. So relax and enjoy the bike you are on and save your pennies people.

Some people definitely got injured in the days running up to the event: thus there were two wildcards that didn't even know they were riding until the previous night. Pilgrim was definitely there; he was on a couple of edits earlier in the week. My guess (tried to find coinfirmation online but failed) is that he got injured. Someone was down and needing attention on the backside of the whale-tail during the dual slalom feed....was it Sam?
