 And those badges, with minaar holding it the second he finished is run !

 @Brakesnotincluded: And Rachel doing this "little sign" while looking at the sky when she finished her run. You can definitely feel that the riders truly consider smith through their runs
  • + 3
 What time was it in the broadcast? Didn't have time to watch all of it so just watched the last few run. Would like to see the tribute.

 @tuboy95: 1:13:40

 @Brakesnotincluded: @Brakesnotincluded: Minaar is truly a great man. Doing it for Stevie, and also honestly caring for the riders that went down while hart and gwin sitting there and chilling and Minaar is grabbing his head, hoping the riders are not hurt. Bless that man.

 You know. I was watching on my iPad live this morning but also gathering myself to meet a friend for a ride. I was in my garage, Red Bull coverage on the steps and as I started pulling my bike off the wall the Stevie tribute run came on. I pulled my bike down, stopped what I was doing and watched. After wiping away a small tear I went back to lubing my chain, checking my tires and putting air in my shocks. I thought it was kind of a prophetic moment.
  • + 63
 @pigit77: Minaar is just one of those guys we should all be thankful that he represents our sport. Not saying there aren't others but you just know he loves the sport and the people he shares it with.
  • + 28
 @lifeofloon: well said sir, well said ! Greg is true gentleman,how he worried about Gee when he crashed,and watched if he get up instead of celebrating (another) win...
  • + 15
 @darren853: I really felt sorry for Gee crashing that early in his run. Dude has no luck :/
  • + 26
 @lifeofloon: Minaar for me is the perfect professional. He's a consistent contender and a properly nice bloke. Delighted to see him on the top step.

As a side note: What the hell is it about Minaar and Ft Bill that fit together so well?!

 The feels with Stevie Smith's run. Well done, UCI. Well done.

 @boulderbasher69: I think he was referring to the ghost run during finals when there was in essence a five minutes of silence for when Steve would have raced.

 Just watched it, tears in my eyes already halfway into his run. Then the swelling noise when he approached the finish section, even more tears. Thank you UCI, thank you Fort William audience, that was amazing!

 Fitting weekend to have a Canadian junior on the top step.

 Brayton's run was mental, it was pretty unnerving to watch

 @Kamba6: I never criticized oquartly`s reply, it would have been nice to see Peaty take the win. I just hate this fan boy logic that anything else than hype and idolizing is being disrespectful. Do you think Peaty wants a horde of white knights to defend his public image? Let himself and his riding do the talking ffs.
  • + 22
 Le tosseur... Peaty's worship is real and can be sick as every single worship is. Those three times I saw him he had a rock star ego aura around him. But then I thought to myself... he may not deserve to be treated as some god but he definitely doesn't deserve some stupid comments undermining his undeniable and extraordinary achievements, comments having only one aim: hey I am here, please love me. I will achieve that by being a dick to a guy who is respected by 99.99999% of my peer group for a good reason.
  • + 18
 @Blablablup123: Ok i'll say it,your a dickhead and a tosser for not showing respect for a racing legend.Everybody know's Peaty wasn't going too win this weekend but we'd all love to believe it could happen.
  • + 4
 @Blablablup123: Dude, you clearly have your bearing all wrong. No one said you were a dickhead, and you need to understand that showing respect to one of the greatest DH racers of all time is not being a fanboy. It's simply showing respect.

Peaty has had his riding speak for him for over 20 years, and he still does. The fact that he can still finish in the top 30 is extremely impressive. I don't see you or anyone else in this comment section doing the same.

Finally, no one is defending his public image. There is no need for that because some kid being a dick in the PB comment section will not do any damage to Peaty's image. However, the attitude of being disrespectful to great people for your own gratification deserves to be called what it is and that is being a dickhead.

 @Blablablup123 - I know how it works because as the attention whore, I've done that. I also have the "devil's advocate" syndrome and enjoy provoking people. The height of this practice of mine was taking a nihilist approach to Will Whites death. So yea, it's cool to fk with people sometimes but only if the result is uncertain and there's a chance that you can win. Here you can't Wink

Now Peaty can defend himself if he so wish. One comment from him and poah's testosterone level hits the rock bottom because in this situation Peaty plays the soldier at the ending of Lord of the Flies.

As for the bike, the insurance paid for that, thanks for asking. Not sure why we're getting all personal here, but whatever. If it makes you feel better about your bike or upbringing, so be it Smile

 All this Peaty downing. Right. Peaty was on the front of MBUK smashing it with the best of them before a lot of commentators here were born. Fact. The fact that he is still racing at world cup level two decades later is good effort and its the likes of him that have made mountain biking what it is today in the UK. Fact Good skills Peaty. Well done.

 Steve peat has been winning since pretty much the beginning. Every five years or so the sport progresses and the new generation of up in coming shredders turn up to the races and he beats them to and this has been going on for 25 years and he still hasn't stopped now his second place at Bala last week and a top 30 finish at fort William prove that.

 How do we get more women on DH bikes, and into bike racing in general? The depth is just not there yet. 10th place 40 seconds down? 20th place 1:21 down?
  • + 27
 That's the question, isn't it? Everyone loves to hate on the sponsors for lack of equal support, but the time gaps don't lie. Sponsoring the tenth best man means a podium threat every race. Sponsoring the tenth best female; you're not even in the conversation. They are solid riders, to be fair, but if the depth of talent were anywhere near the men's, that rider probably wouldn't even be on the WC circuit. Need more depth of talent for higher quality racing.
  • + 5
 @AllMountin: But on the flip side not getting the same level of support for trainers, time on the bike ect... means that they likely have no chance. Sponsors have to take a chance sometimes. Give them 2-3 years of solid support regardless the results and then after that time move on if its nor working, It seems like so many cant even be on the same race team more than a year or two tops. How do you expect them to try and top someone who has all the support i the world. Really if you not a Euro girl at this point you have little to no chance it seems.

 Start them racing young I have 3 girls there super into riding they watch all the world cups there really young but say that's what they want todo when they get bigger.

 Classic Fort Bill again - crashes, legends and an outstanding tribute to a hero. It was very classy.

Minnaar is such a professional it's nice to see him win because he puts the sport in a great light, showing respect and doing coherent interviews not just hats, sunglasses, stupid noises and hand gestures (like some others!).
  • + 13
 Might be a little bit biased but greg really showed what a pro he is. Going into this he was down at 18 and not looking on top form...then to come and lay down a run that pretty much demolished the field. I would love to see his full run between split 1 and 2 because that is where he won it. There were plenty of riders ahead of him at split 1...but not a soul at split 2
  • + 15
 You don't have to be biased. Greg is such a class act. I may not always be rooting for him but I'm always happy when he wins unlike some of the other guys in the field. Who else shows such compassion and empathy for his fellow rivals while displaying such passion for the sport and athleticism? Very few from what I've seen.

 @lifeofloon: Yeah man, I always noticed how concerned he and Peaty both are for other riders. It's amazing!

And the fact they have spread that concern to others in the sport like an infection is why Gravity MTB is one of the best
sports on the planet. Even Josh (the second coming of Mick Jagger) is like that.

 Ft. Bill is a long puzzle of a track... especially with totally different conditions this year and a new woods section. Seems like a pretty big home track advantage for the Brits who've been training there for the last month.
  • + 2
 Yeah, I can't quite figure out how Danny was 1st, 2nd, 2nd, and 2nd and still came in 3rd. Must have lost time between the final split and the finish.
  • + 1
 Danny doesn't have the pedal power that Gwin does. He got most his time advantage in by first split, added a lil more on him by 2nd splt. Third split Gwin got very little back, between 3-4 when it starts to flatten out and also when riders get tired Gwin pulled back a second between 3 and 4 and the the rest until the finish. Danny was the slowest on from split 3 to finish of all the podium finishers. It could be ran out of gas, he was clearly the fastest at split 1 which says he went out harder than all the others up top.

 @mfoga: Check out the clip in the vital slideshow where Danny cleans the root section after the drop, shows a bunch of other riders too. Pretty amazing

 Even without racing Ft William Stevie Smith still is 18th in the overall standings. So technically he is still a protected rider (having ridden two out of the three races, one of those punctured). Not saying that the should do another protected run, it would never quite match this one. But it does go to show how amazing he was. In three races only seventeen competitors gathered more points than he did in two races.

 Heckuva a result for Brayton and Shaw, Minnaar showing why he's GOAT, and Gwin also had a solid performance.

 Would be nice to see at Crank worx a silent run for Stevie we should have one at home for him also
  • + 1
 Ya would be cool if we did something at crankworks for chainsaw But Steve liked to have a good time as we all know So my thoughts are instead of a somber event Let's light whistler on fire or some crazy shit and pay respect to Stevie in a more ass kickin way Also I think we should rename the Canadian open To the Steve smith Canadian open Longlivechainsaw might have to ge painted on hecklers rock

 is it me or Aaron Gwin just doesn't seem to bond with anyone, he seem avoided by everyone, even by the media, he just doesn't get included in anything, I mean I know he kick their asses at least the 98% of the time, but he just seem left by the side.
  • + 5
 He doesn't drink and party like many others. This is the guy who said his vice is ice cream. I think he is just a different personality then a lot of the other top guys. Gee always seemed to be kind of like Gwin. I don't think they are unliked by their peers, they just don't have the same personality.

 @AGR97: Exactly - plus the reach on the medium Scott is the same as the size Large V10 - which is why its mental that Ratty rides the size Large....

 How can the women's times be so spread out? The top 3 are all 10 seconds away from each other and Rachel was a minute faster than 15th place. I truly don't understand why
  • + 2
 I'll be guessing she is living of his bike 100%, meaning she can be at her bike 24/7 365, also she is taller more shaped like a man. she also has to be at least able to follow gee's training. thats why, tahnne kind of like the same and so tracy and manon. still they lack the strength of rachel and the guidance of a top guy like gee or dan.

Perhaps change providers - iinet is where its at.
