It might not be too pretty but you don’t see many comments about how the Spesh Demo isn’t fast anymore... personally I kinda like the idea of function before form in DH, bring on more fast!

Not many US guys at the top. Gwin, Harrison, Norton, Shaw are the US hopefuls for the rest of the season.

Gwin is top ten. That's quite decent considering how good all the the other riders are.

: He is top 10 but has had a horrible season. That just shows how good he is. Better to see the US guys at the top.

: To be honest I don't care much whether athletes from one particular country end up on top. Considering how big (in population) the US is, it would be most fair compare it to for instance Western Europe. But I can imagine it would be frustrating to make such a comparison in any sport. I'm from The Netherlands so obviously I'm not expecting top performances in DH racing from my country. They finished the previous century with a win but haven't managed another one this entire century. Anne Terpstra won in XC this weekend after a great performance so that's cool. The US soccer team won the world championships today though and that is so well deserved I think I would actually be disappointed if the Dutch would have won it. At the end of the day I just want to see the best win, no matter where he or she comes from.

: I don't root against anybody and have the utmost respect for all the athletes from all the countries. Of course, I want to see the best of the best in the world racing and may the best person win. However, I do root for my fellow country men and country women. Nothing wrong with that.

: Yeah, I get that. I've been rooting for Anneke Beerten ever since she was racing for B1 (BeOne) and I was already stoked when she placed second (after ACC) at the Lisbon Urban DH race (as a privateer on a 80mm travel Specialized Enduro SX). And of course I love how the Dutch are doing in BMX racing (especially when Niek Kimmann chooses lane 8 for the finals and still wins) and how Jeffrey Herlings was dominating the MXGP as a freshman last season. But there definitely is a limit. I don't really follow soccer that much but back in 2010 the Dutch men played in the finals of the World Championships. People told me I needed to watch because they were really good. I watched, it was the most disgusting display of soccer ever performed at that level. I wanted them to lose, with a passion. Luckily they did. The ladies today were fine, the Americans were just so much better the entire tournament. It just wouldn't have been fair if they wouldn't have taken the title.
But yeah, back to WC DH racing. Times are so tight, to me those top riders are all about as good. It makes perfect sense to root for the riders from your country.
