 @ReformedRoadie: unfortunately, Rob and Bart have being putting athletes like Nino and Pauline in the spotlight far too often with all this talks about building toward the Olympics. From my point of view and with all the respect that every athlete deserves, many athletes have been doing the same, and this could backfire if they do not deliver on July 26 and 27.

 @used-couchpsalesman It's insane to think that I am one of his college classmates, and a lot of his childhood friends don't know he even rides bikes fast!

 @Grantma: Well I'm old enough to be your dad, been following this sport since Ned was racing World Cups and 19 year olds aren't supposed to win U23 World Cups. It's insane.

 I think we can say that Nino's era is over after recent results. Sure, he still will be capable of doing well on good days, but will no longer be in front all of the time as he did last few years. Even without forces like Pidcock and MvDP in field. Or will he?

 Nino for gold. 100%.

 @mikelevy for sure, Nino peaking for the olympics

 I wouldn't count him out yet. Yes, he is waning, and some of the younger competition are looking very strong, but his 10th place today is actually an incredible result considering his start position which was very much tied to his slipped pedal at the start of the short track race.

 Don't count him out. His recent performances must surely be caused by him riding the new Spark, which is obviously utter crap. The question is whether he will be allowed to switch to the old Spark though, but at least for the OG race he should be free to do so.

 @tealdub: it's not mountain biking mass start DH... Guess what with a live following drone... Poor show isn't it?
  • 1 0
 I agree with @TheJD that the new bike could be a bit heavier, and possibly not the best choice for Leogang. At the same time, plenty of male athletes took the Fox 32SC over the 34SC for this track, with Ondřej being one of the exceptions who took the 34SC and finished second.

 So good to see her back at the front. Fought hard all race with the main chasing group which included all the big names. was incredible to watch her fight through in the last lap to dominate and capture 2nd. Great performance. Just hope she and the others can catch Lecomte!

 @Ktron: she is one of the big names

 I think Lecomte is a cyborg. She doesn't even look like she's breathing out there.
