 I really wish the WC's had special spots reserved for guys on the FMB world tour to utilize, like saying 2-3 per race, automatically prequalified for finals. For a sport like MTB that draws so hard on personalities, I can't see this as being as anything but a good move for bringing in more viewership. Plus who doesn't want to see how a dude like Semenuk/Zink/Aggy throw down at a WC track, regardless of their results I think it would start some interesting conversations. For instance while pros and specators a like, like to comment on the roughness/"validity" of tracks, I think adding a different set of pros to these events would kind of prove those comments true/false. If nothing else it gives something else to market, and bring in potential dollars which is never bad for our sport.

 @pbfan08: You think too much.


Question though.. how does someone get a DNS on a section of the run but still finish? Remy must be pissed.

 @CJSelig: hes got the flips on his instagram, the crowd lost it when he did that. even if i wasnt a racer id be hyped to ride that, something about tearing up a city on a dh bike would be magical with crowds screaming
