 What does the cutoff line at 40 mean on the results sheet? Is the live feed that many riders?
  • 8 1
 @suspended-flesh: That's just sticky tape. Top 30 are live if my terrible memory serves.

 @cpscotti: Yeah - watched the times coming in and he looped past a guy - I did wonder if that cost him anything, 10 seconds might be a tad optimistic!

 Well. 99% watched for the same reason and the giraffe only went and did it.

 it is so sick. he reminds me of what the old era of dh must have been like with the likes of the canfield guys building the bikes they believed they needed to have a chance. so sick.

 Cathro you big long neck giraffe noodle bastard. Well done
  • 5 0
 12 UK riders in the top 25, that's mad. Nearly half of the live feed - perhaps a 'british feel' to track? Shorter and Flatter than other tracks with focus of maintaining speed is pretty similar to a lot of UK tracks?!?
  • 2 0
 It’s slippery out there too, even without the rain! Goooooo east coast DH
  • 2 0
 Mad how talented the uk rider scene is, considering the North Shore and Whistler alone probably has about as much terrain as here in the entire country.
  • 4 0
 Heck yeah Cathro!!!!

During his course preview, I think he said he only arrived with one wheelset? OMG! Check those spokes, run the CC, use the noodle arm finesse and cross fingers! Then tell us about the wheelset after!
  • 4 0
 Will cathro post a vid of duff lines to throw of the competition?!
He could break check the jumps and just roll them but speed up the footage to convince others it’s faster!
  • 5 0
 Is Mille Johnset protected? Will she race tomorrow after the DNF in qualifying?
  • 5 0
 Pretty sure she is, said she'd break the beam today to keep her options open for tomorrow...
  • 9 0
 @dolface: The crash she had on Vital RAW was pretty hefty. Not surprised she is taking it easy a very sudden stop using her head.
  • 2 0
 @paulskibum: Yeah, that was savage and super-bad luck w/ that rock...
  • 6 0
 Anyone know what happened to Greg Minnaar - DNF?
  • 3 1
 I heard he rolled through the start gate then pulled off the course.
  • 2 0
 @danteb: Resting. Mille Johnset did the same thing after her crash yesterday. Protected status means they are still racing at the top of the pack anyway.
  • 5 0
 Crashed up top, according to the SC Syndicate Instastories looks like a grade 2 or 3 AC joint shoulder separation.
  • 2 0
 @craig-the-barbarian: ah sheeeeit. I just got back from the ortho to check up on my separation and break. 80% healed after 5.5 months, this shit is lingering.
  • 4 0
 Hit a tree in the top woods. Grade 2/3 AC joint. Sounds like he wants to race tmrw still though! Jeeeez
  • 2 0
 @adamkat: He may want to but this won't work.

 Jack and Corey Yes Boys!!! Virginia represent
  • 6 0
 Finn full gas nice !
  • 5 0
 Congrat to @ben-cathro !! Qualified 44th ! Rooting for you Line Guy
  • 3 0
 No clue what happened to some of the big boys (Daprela, Loris) but GM hit a tree in the tops woods and Loic had a flat near the finish. Explains a bit, but damnnnnn go Finn!
  • 4 0
 Big Ben Noodle Airms.... well done Cathro . you have done Scotland proud ya lanky hoor.
  • 4 1
 5th place junior is same as women number 1 Myriam she is flying on this course
  • 6 0
 She is definitely flying, but that also caught my eye - turns out its a mistake in the PB results, as the 5th place junior dude actually finished ~3:29.

Still, to be only 10 seconds back from a guy that will likely be on the Elite Men's WC circuit at some point is staggering. TBH, this season I was kinda assuming PomPom was going to be in the mix for every podium, but probably getting pipped by young guns like Vali, Marine and Camile...But nope, she's gone full Rachel/ACC and just destroying the field. So awesome to see from a "veteran" and from someone who broke the amoral f*ck out of her ankle 2 seasons ago. Also incredible to see all the bad ass ladies hitting all the big boy/girl jumps...I tip my full-face to Nicole and all the pinner women.

 pretty cool to see a world cup race somewhere other than europe.

 When there's lots of green in the split times like that you know the track is hard and the racing is going to be unreal.

 Is the Goat okay?
  • 1 0
 His IG shows his shoulder is pretty busted up. He's out.
  • 1 0
 @Chuch: You sure he's out? He looks beat up but doesn't mean he's out. He's prequalified for finals so a DNF doesn't mean he misses the big show.
  • 1 0
 His Insta says "We'll see what happens..." Looks like he's getting PT. Don't count him out yet.
  • 3 0
 @brainbckt: honestly if he can ride down with a separated shoulder it would not be human.
  • 3 0
 @browner: Perhaps you could say it would be caprine...
  • 2 0
 @browner: Well he is the goat...
  • 2 0
 @browner: He wouldn't be the first person to race that mountain with a fresh separation, hurts like hell but if you can hold on you can race. Kinda like dodge ball with wrenches.
Just point that school bus down the hill and let her eat!

 @browner: Pretty sure he's done it in the past, years ago, at Mt St Anne I think?
