 Sam is riding in his own world really. What he does on a bike is different then everyone else, different body english, position and lines on course. Props to Peaty and Minnar also. Peaty with a bum foot for coming out and minnar for being hard as nails. Barel is also just off a nasty foot injury, amazing. I think he did this a few season back after dislocating his shoulder at St. Anne and then winning gold soon after.

 His own world? barel was on the same second, and faster after the split.

  By his own world I mean the way he rides, his lines and his usual winning margin. There have been some big margins from other riders but in general, when sam wins he wins by alot. True, Barel gained time back after the split (which was more then 3/4 way down the track) which is prolly due to there being a bit more pedaling at the bottom. Killer racing when its that close though eh.

 Yeah, but didn't you hear their reactions. Sam said he blew out a lot of corners, and didn't like his run. Barel said his run was perfect.

 ^^ ya I guess there is some form of Geo specific software that had to be used in order to make it this way. Basically Freecaster couldn't play the worlds in the USA for some reason. Well thankfully I got to watch them here.

 OK that was a race to attend. Gee looked crazy fast up top, Min-Gnar crashes and pulls that run off still=sick! I'm not sure why they have no podium at the World Championships, but either way that was sick riding.

 ^ oh cause in all the videos they do a presentation in teh finish areas and that seemed really odd to me for such a big event-thanks for the clarification.
