 Racers ready... Kinda cool. The gatestarter hits this button and the random start is engaged. Sometime--in the next 3-6 seconds-the gate will drop. But it is genuinely completely random.

  Luca Shaw, not even sure if he's turned 16 yet, I'm sure we'll be seeing more of him in the next few years...

  and Bas van Steenbergen as well, while he's making a mark in racing, Tom van Steenbergen is killing it in slopestyle

  Bas looked like he might make it through to the final but couldn't quite get past Troy Brosnan.

  Steffi Marth and Fionn Griffiths racing for 3rd.

Ropelato high fiving Brosnan. Ropelato got the call up to sub for Brosnan while the Aussie was out with a bruised spleen but I think it s safe to say that Ropelato has earned a spot on the squad for the duration of the rest of the season.

Mitch Ropelato went off autopilot and choked--somehow getting a top tube ride immediately after this turn as he was working to edge out Bas Van Steenbergen.

Brosnan and Guillaume Vanet going head to head. It s been good to see Brosnan back in action--the bruised spleen he suffered at an IXS Cup in Leogang Austria last May has finally healed up enough that the young Aussie has been cleared to ride. Although his docs may not have had dual slalom and pump track racing in mind for his re-hab...
