 I'm glad Kate managed to work her way back up. She was hovering around 16th and 17th in the penultimate laps, glad she moved up to 11th to get some good points. Hopefully she's working her way back up again!

 That was a VERY good ride for her. Let's see if she can keep it up. She was still mean to me.

 @Willikers: i.e. you're just bullshitting. Also no one types "imma" just type "I'm not" you pathetic idiot.

P.S. You can reply if you want but I have actually relevant and meaningful things happening in my life that aren't related to trash bags who like putting people down on the internet so "Imma" just ignore you.

 @HGAB: you think I'm bsing..

Suppose, just suppose she was mean to me.
And suppose, just suppose she was mean to other people.

Now you are stuck.. you've hitched your wagon to this girl and she played you.

In your haste to defend her virtue you outed yourself as a card carrying klan member. "No one types that, type this you idiot." So I'm an idiot for using a familiar language to me?

I think what you are trying to say is "don't talk like you talk like me because I'm white."

Was that worth it? At least you got some likes from random strangers, you racist pos.

 Thanks for posting these so that I can sort out my team's points for the Pinkbike XC fantasy league.

(If the fantasy league is a fantasy, is it then a fantasy^2 league?)

 McConnell now has a 349-point gap on Lecomte, which appears* to be enough for her to miss a race entirely and still hold onto 1st place.

* it looks like 330 (250 for the win and 80 for 1st in qualifying) is the highest score possible.

 McConnell is a decent bike handler, ample experience. It's hard not to wonder if her coaching was sub-standard before this season and she her true ability is only now showing through. I for one am embarrassed to have considered her a journeyman (journeywoman, journeyperson..??), you can't even see my face through all the egg.

 *beyond decent.. Great.

 @Willikers: Jolanda is Great, and that's a very high bar.
  • 1 0
 @nzandyb: look if you're going to say Jolanda is great at anything - macrame, chess, dungeons & dragons, doesn't matter - I am going to have to fight you to say it first.

Trials-y stuff, wheelies, blind runs on downhill courses on her XC bike (check out the recent one in South Africa, mind blowing) she is unqualifiedly great.

Bec is low key great - lots of flow on any surface, particularly the gnar. Uses her long cockpit to her advantage and moves a lot on the bike fore and aft. A lot of why she looks so smooth now is she's going so effing fast.

Bec is like an xc Cami Balanche, using subtle movements to control the bike. Jenny is like that.

Jolo is like Pompon, lots of english, clearly looking like they are thinking a_lot. Thrilling styles.

Overall I'll take Jolo as Great, Bec as great.

Also Anne Terpstra has mind bending flow.

 Nino is on one this season

 Bummer about that flat but what a come back to rejoin the lead group. Also a bummer that Pidcock exists, for Nino
  • 4 0
 @tunnel-vision: Pidcock’s next MTB race is almost certainly going to be Les Gets world champs in August - he’ll be straight into Tour de France prep now. That’s a lot of chances for Nino to hit the top step with the form he’s got right now.
  • 2 0
 @wingguy: doesn't seem the most satisfying way to win ie only if Pidcock doesn't show up.
  • 4 1
 @tunnel-vision: it's almost disrespectful from these guys who just jump from disapline to disapline just to fit their training needs. Pick a series and do it.
  • 4 1
 @warmerdamj: Only disrespectful if you aren't taking the racing seriously... In Pidcock's case winning is a good indicator that he is racing seriously, in MVDP's case taking it seriously would be remembering the ramp is gone.
  • 1 0
 @tunnel-vision: True, but in a way XCO has always been like that. Neither Absalon nor Schurter would have dominated as much as they did if the best junior talent didn’t go exclusively road racing instead. It isn’t any different now Pidcock and MvdP are doing what they’re doing, it’s just more obvious.

 Durango Devo alum representing in U23, 10th in women and 4th in men. Way to crush it Ruth and Riley!

 Lol. No mention of pidcock's win on the BBC. Loads of other cycling guff about roadies and ironically cyclo cross.
Is there something about MTB that upper class knobheads don't like?

 I am so for Bec to have a perfect season. Some new names in the top-20 in both Men and Women.

 Ibis needs an xc race bike. J.R is being held back on that trail bike.

 Lol wut
  • 6 0
 Do you want Ibis to design a different XC race bike than the bike they released in 2021 that was designed from the ground up as an XC race bike and is being ridden by Rissveds?

 Yea, 3,3,3,2,1.. HORRIBLE placements!! She would hate your comment, trolldork.
