 I saw him on Sunday practicing. I was standing right next to him on the hike part of the course and motioned for him to go ahead. Took me a second to even realize he had two prosthetic legs, much respect!

 Many riders left Mt St Anne Mon am at 02:00. Drove 3.5hrs to the airport, waited an hour then flew for 5 hrs. Next a 2 hr drive. Many landed late last night. Try learning a 13mins DH course in 2 practice runs. Hence many never raced her. Tomorrow will be different for the Fox Air DH down A line. Only problem being is many only have their DH sleds as the big rigs and bikes are 5k miles away / 4 days drive away. Hope that answers your questions?

 @si-paton, Exactly. How the hell can someone like Ragot travel so much in so little time right after MSA, end up in Whistler and beat Clair Buchar in her backyard. WOW and I do mean WOW, Emmeline is incredible. Just the traveling would have made anyone exhausted.

Major congrats to Emmeline, she really is a machine.

 To be fair to Claire, she was nearly killed a few months ago. I'm amazed she's actually riding again at the moment.

 just because the pros aren't racing, doesn't mean that the victory of those guys was less important folks!

 Smith and Beer not Racing...is this Devinci making a Statement to the organizers for having a race so quickly after a UCI event?!

 Cranksworx tried to accommodate the pros before by having the event in July. It sucked for them and the pro's didn't support it much better. You can't accommodate everybody.

 I'm confused, Smith was meant to be racing but they stopped mentioning him half way through the broadcast? And Tracey Hannahs name was on the list but she disappeared too? What happened?

 Yup tough gig for the pros... was on the chair with Hart and Neethling. Schedules to get there is crazy for them straight after last race... Not much time to practice at all compared to locals. Danny showed his class with his final time... props.

 Most of the pros in town arent racing , hence the unusual finish...

 seems a little silly to schedule two such major events so close together?...
  • 2 2
 Why are the pro's in town not racing? Saving energy for other events?
  • 8 1
 Its alot of racing. They just had a World Cup and the Garbanzo DH is an endurance race, Its like a 12 minute DH race. Plus there are 2 more DH races this week I believe. There is the Air DH and the Canadian Open DH. Probably see more riders in the Air DH and Canadian Open. And the reason they have the events so close is to save the teams money. It takes a buttload of money to shuttle these teams and all the support all over the world. Its not a accident that the MSA Worldcup is the week before Crankworx so the teams are already there.
  • 23 2
 I hope you realize MSA and Whistler are at opposite ends of Canada, a 5 hour flight apart. It's not exactly "already there" lol
  • 5 1
 No shit, but they are on the same continent. The trip from MSA to Whistler is certainly alot easier than say coming to MSA, heading back to Europe for another WC round, they making the trip back to Whistler is it not? The riders can fly but they can drive the rigs and all the support from one place to the other. Its certainly easier to just make one trip to North America than two.

 5 hours beats being in Europe m8

 Very true. The Garbonzo DH is a lot different than a World Cup DH. Huge difference in duration and the course can be extremely gnarly under certain conditions and plain gnarly with ideal conditions. Also, the world championships is coming up soon and a lot of the top guys are really into that race, especially the euros. I get the feeling Steve Smith really wants to take home the rainbow jersey for Canada and I hope he does. Props to the pros that raced Garbo this year, but props also for the pros that have to pick and choose races and save it for the World Cup series and the upcoming World Championships.

 .....Toronto to heathrow is 5 hours
  • 3 2
 Its actually about 8 hrs...
  • 4 1
 No it's not. I've been to London twice, it's 5 hours in the air, 9 if you count waiting around at the airport. Toronto to Vienna is a little under 8 hours in the air
  • 2 1
 Haha calm down.... I took into concideration the time difference too Big Grin

 My original point was not about how long the flights are across Canada. That's irrelevant. The riders can fly and its still a decent trip. The point was that from the overall standpoint of the teams, and the travel, and getting the bikes, the equipment, the support, etc, from race to race there is a huge advantage to only making one trip to North America as opposed to two. Its why Windham and MSA are always back to back on the WC schedule, as the will be again next year when Windham is back on the calendar. Next year it will be MSA, Windham, & Crankworx on three consecutive weekends. That's no coincidence. They do it for a reason.

 MSa after windham it will be great next year, the team won't have to split the rigs between MSA and whistler. this year at MSA santa cruz just got a little place with no sticker or poster to give. GT, Giant, TREK got a regular stand but specialized was a bit normal.

 mine stream was clear then pixilated then clear again at one time you could not even see who the rider was , still cool watching and listen to live DH racing
  • 3 0
 Mine was the same, it was ok to start with then just got reaally bad like you say I couldnt make out who the rider was! And then it kept going off and coming on again?? I tried changing the resolution and had no effect.... maybe just my location. I watched stevie win the other night with no problems crystal clear, it was just crap for me tonight....

 The quality of the video is based on how fast the video is loading. if your internet is slow or your computer is slow/ dismissing other stuff the player will automatically compensate by reducing the quality so it doesn't start then stop then start then stop....

 Not dismissing. Downloading....autocorrect
