 It was really a Mud Mad Max, yet the best showed their skills and ability to shred in extreme conditions. Without any doubt - a great show to watch!

 so has there been a WC that hasn't been a total muck fest yet? Man that was some seriously nasty looking mud.

 watching them ride that fast when it was that muddy was amazing, props to all the riders

 Haha he's missing a rotor bolt.
  • 1 0
 Ah well spotted. its a good tactic. he's "missing" three. you can see another missing. Basically because he weighs nothing he doesn't need all the bolts in the rotors and so can save the weight instead. Even Peaty at canberra world champs only ran three bolts on the rear to save maximum weight.
But yeah don't do it yourself - its freaking stupid and you're not a WC rider with a mechanic checking your bike after every single run. They'd be able to swap rotors/wheels if the bolts start to fail.

 Make sense. I've run 4 bolts in the past. Lost one and the other stripped out when I tacoed the rotor lol.
