 Neko "No Chainz" Mulally.... talk about drama... Couldn't believe the run he put on and I swore it would not last until all the riders went down one after the other failing to dethrone him. Down to the last 4 and it really seemed so possible. Made me want him to win it all! Then Gee comes along and crushes it! I have to admit, so gutted for Ratboy who had such a clean/complete run... and for Sam who "was" having a spectacular run! What a way to end it... best race this year!
  • + 11
 I am too @dennisbarrera. Sam Hill run was insane without that massive crash. Ratboy too without that injury. Neko definitely a great run beating big names with their chains on.

 I cant fathom why ratboy didn't scrub it. it blows my mind.

 Does this mean the contract he signed with the devil has expired?? Will have to wait till next season to see...
  • + 4
 What a day for Mulally. Why has/is there so little noise made for him as a top American DHer? So many others like Strobel and JD Swanguen and Cole Bangert have been hopefuls over the years, but barely a peep for Neko. Maybe that will change in 2015.
  • + 168
 Fuck, gutted for the rat!
  • + 53
 And he was still less than a second off, who would've thought Sam and Rat would've lost it like they did.
  • + 28
 The two most arguably in form riders coming into the race had the two fastest final splits but lost it a few hundred meters from the line... still can't get over all this drama
  • + 65
 I guess hucks to flat won't win you worlds.
  • + 7
 Just replying to see if someone knows anything about rat's injury
  • + 6
 hope Bryce is alright, looked more like a pretty serious ankle injury. heal up fast man.
  • + 5
 Probably had something to do with falling 20 ft out of the air to flat, breaking a pedal off in the process, and his ankle. Could be worse if he didn't break his ankle but instead tore ligaments/tendons in it. Possible lower tib/fib break too I would guess. That's my ski patroller opinion though, from what I saw on TV.

 so Gee wins again as a result of another riders finish line error....*whistling*

 Did his pedal break off? and from what i saw just a broken ankle :/. Still sucks knowing how much he wanted to win that one Frown

 It's no good being fast if you can't hold it together the guys who win are fast and hold it together which gee man does amazingly! No use being fast if you can't put the pieces together

 "hold it together" like Gee in the rock garden?
  • + 55
 Hey ... he stayed on!
  • + 67
 Amen to that, a bit sad for RATBOY but super happy for Gee. All the crap he gets on this site is ridiculous! Way to finish the season champ!
  • + 3
 Hahaha....@stretchza thats cruel...but true. It is actually stadistics... whenever all risk takers fail the constant individuals (in this case riders) will be there to take take the win. It happened at Champerry too.

Whatch the movie Moneyball, in this case is baseball but the basics are the same.
  • + 35
 Totally agree with you he gets crap for telling it how it is !mad respect for gee

 Gee was first to Josh to see if he was ok, and first to congratulate him in his interview. So many trolls hiding behind keyboards its unbelievable!

 5mins ago on rebull feed:

"Josh Bryceland has been taken to hospital for surgery on his ankle. We wish him all the best on his recovery."

 No "what ifs" in racing, boys. Congrats to Gee, he won fair and square. The man deserves it.

 no doubt - gee is a consistent professional who deserved his win without any doubt...just gutted that the rat had a brain fart

 Definite snap then,

 Same here, he didn't even attempt to scrub off the bridge, just hammered straight into it and sent it. So gnarly... I hope he heals up quick and same with Hill (hopefully he didn't get worse than a few scrapes).

 Thats how racing goes. Gee had some ups and downs these last few years so I'm stoked for him. He is one though mfcker.

 He's young and just getting his winning ways sorted is all so he probably will heal well. Y'know he will be even hungrier for wins next season. He and Hill both will be pissed and lookin for redemption. Next season is gonna be even better!

 From the picture above he has a serious Lisfranc injury = not normally a simple recovery. Lets hope the surgeon is as good at their game as Ratty is at his! Get well soon, that was one sick jump and you still finish second!

 Pleased to see a lot of educated and fair comments about Gee winning and people stoked for him too win!!! . I was gutted to see fan favourites Hill and Josh slip up on winning runs . Got to give it to Gee for putting it all together, the man is so consistent and a legend Holy shit Neko, no chain wtf! Great day for Great Britain, 6 medals out of a possible 9......

 @will-oddy, Yep it was really GB's day last Sunday. When racing, the clock does not give a shit about the "woulda's, coulda's and shoulda's" of the world. Gee was the most consistent and DH is all about measuring risk and hoping for no mechanicals and Gee was managed to measure it best. Congrats to Gee.

 Gee won like Val di Sole when Hill crashed out, nevertheless he made it down the hill fastest without crashing (and I don`t like Gee). Would have been so awesome to see Hill or Rat win! Ratboys impact was really heavy (think something got injured) and Hill hitting the rocks at this speed.....:-(
  • + 45
 Since when was a crash not important? If you crash that means you literally couldn't keep your bike upright. Gee didn't crash, he was fastest, he deserves the win! There is nothing unfair about it.

Put that aside..Gee will bang his head saying "hooow?" when he turn on replay and watch Hill ride Smile

 Sam Hill you're the real MVP!
  • + 4
 Ratboy crashed on a jump that was pointless anyway, such a shame
  • + 26
 Honestly, you get some right nuggets posting on this site, Gee didnt deserve the win becaue Josh and Hill crashed? If they hadnt of been going so fast they wouldn't have crashed, which means if they had been going that bit slower I very much doubt they would have beaten Gees time, Gees time was a hard one to beat, Josh knew this and over cooked it..... Its that simple!! This will go down as a learing experience for Josh
  • + 10
 Everyone has their favorite riders, mine are Hill, Blenki and Loic Bruni at the moment. Rider errors from others does not take anything from Gee, that's part of racing. You can show support for your favorite rider without putting down on others like some have. Next season will be so good. Ratboy, Hill, Gwin, Brosnan and Gee all had moment of greatness. Loic coming in with one more year of experience. My only wishes is that Steve Smith won't be off his game and Bulldog doing good.
  • + 13
 But he did crash! He went over the same rocks as gee but went over the bars. On this day gee was the best rider and deserved to win. Show him the respect he deserves.

 @hutchjr josh didn't have a f*cking mechanical! He made the wrong decision boosting that jump instead of squashing it! That's all part of riders skills,decision making! And he chose wrong and it's cost him badly. I love josh and think at the minute he's the best rider by miles but a poor choice cost him today. Gee also hit a tree and dropped a pedal but managed to hold on and take the win. Well deserved. Great guy and legend in our sport.
  • + 4
 It's true Warner said it himself, the guys that win find a way to get down the hill the fastest and the safest. Had Rat squashed that last jump he wouldn't have landed flat, although at that speed, trying to squash that would have been really tricky. McDonald's is a good example and in some way did cost him a bit of time to manage the transition vs. carry all his speed. Definitely a tough one for Rat, hope he heals up in the off-season and is ready for 2015, same with Mr.Smith, be great to see him back.
  • - 1
 I'm not sure, but I'd have a word if I was you because Aron is doing Shit!
  • + 7
 I cannot decide if they are trolls or just genuinely do not understand racing. Gee had a huge moment in the rock section that cost him time and exit speed. His run was not perfect but it was the fastest run of the 2014 UCI World Championship.
  • + 6
 all these stupid Gee being 'lucky' and 'not deserved' comments are coming from Canadian/German trolls. All the educated and reasonable comments are from USA and Britain.
Could be upset that their countries did not perform.....
  • + 3
 Technically, Ratboy didn't crash. He just had an excruciating bobble. Frown
  • + 6
 Gee lost at least 1 second in the rocks further up , rat boy lost maybe half a second at the end , Gee would of beat his time even if both had clean runs in my view.

Not a gee/ratboy hater/fanboi, I think they are both great , just saying what I seen.

 Neko Mulally = Chainless World Champion 2014.

 Chainless man! Great run indeed!
  • + 11
 Chainless champ of all time, I would say. That's fucking nuts... Well done, Neko. Well done.
  • + 1
 where can i watch the replay?
  • + 2
 I think a lot riders will be changing their riding up now after Nekos run , to come 4th against riders that are usually ahead of you in the WC with no chain says a lot for all the pedal smashing the rest of the feild done with clean runs and ending up slower than Neko.
  • + 3
 Generally think Neko's run would of been slower if he had a chain on. Pure balls out riding
  • + 1
 How was the look on Bulldog's face when Neko took the hotseat? Priceless Smile
  • + 1
 maybe neko showed us that, the point where pumping/working the terrain becomes more advantageous than pedalling, is at a lower speed threshold than most riders think? This was definitely a track thats gonna work better for chainless than most, but still I wonder if guys like Marcello are limiting themselves by choosing to pedal over everything imaginable when they should be working the terrain instead?
  • + 56
 HOLY FUCK THAT WAS THE CRAZIEST WORLD CHAMPS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • + 51
 Oh and why are people talking smack about Gee? One of the most best riders out there holds it together from start to finish and he wins because of luck? I don't think so....

 Same individuals that trash judging on Rampage if their favorite rider doesn't win.

 I don't understand the hate towards him , so he doesn't smile 24/7 ? I had a feeling he would win this pretty much made my day

  • + 5
 Feeling Peaty deprived here too… he was 16th so why didn't they show more than 8 seconds?
  • + 2
 They follow riders to the finish live so if they crash then less will be shown of the next rider... You could see in some cases that the rider behind finished in the same camera shot as the previous rider
  • + 1
 @WhatsEnduro I thought the exact same thing - that's just rude
  • + 4
 still pissed, regardless of the potential reasons. I'm pretty sure earlier in the season he got a re-run for a downed rider in front of him ,so not the first time we've missed out on coverage. At this point in the game if there is one rider that should get the full track and camera to himself, it's definitely that guy!
  • + 36
 What is with all the hate on Gee? Keep reading he was lucky, hell any rider these days going fast enough to compete for a win is very lucky to hold it together! Talk about Sam or even my favorite Ratboy deserving the win, it was Gee that held it together and if that's luck, everyone should start praying for luck.. 123 neg away! !!!
  • + 14
 I agree, Gee has been a little off the pace this season but he's always at the sharp end. He did incredibly well to keep his momentum after nearly coming off in the rock garden...he must have lost a couple of seconds with that mistake, so his time would have been up there regardless of the Hill/Ratboy f*ck ups on track.
  • + 36
 I am actually crying for ratboy
  • + 32
 Gutted for Bryceland and Hill. Both had winning runs going. And Josh was so close!
  • + 3
 I can only speculate that Bryceland didn't realize how fast he was actually going. I'm sure he hit that jump a dozen-or-so times this week and was cozy with it. Funny thing about racing, you have a ton of people cheering you on and the juices can really get flowing. And he still only finished .4 seconds away from gold...
  • + 2
 Oh I figure he knew exactly how fast he was going and decided to go for it anyway.
  • + 24
 Nice to see Gee get one this year. No idea why he gets all the hate. Bummed for Hill and The Rat. But Steve in 16th! pretty bad ass!!
  • + 24

 I feel sick. Hill would have taken it but crashed badly then ratboy. Oh ratboy - god I hope he's okay.
  • + 2
 Seriously, my jaw was hanging from Hill's run until the smashing final run of Bryceland. Both were on the cusp of victory. Hill was about to exit the last rock garden and essentially a few hard drifts from gold. Bryceland was so close he could probably see the frown on Gee's face. F---!!!!

 World Cup curse again, if people actually new they're WChamps history, too many Z genners here that don't do backwards on they're I me phones and pads, the stupid generation with more technology than ever, this type of carnage has plagued riders throughout champs, Peaty lost 4-5 WChamps through the curse, Hill now at least 2, Greg Minnaar the 3 peat is almost impossible, only Nico Vouliiouz why he is the GOAT. Ratboi brain explosion feel for him, but he hucked that bridge, the one time to throw a whip scrub and he boosted for the moon for hero finish and it cost him, he was almost too relaxed in some sections he sat down and could have stopped for a beer I actually thought he must have flatted in too pedally sections he was so casual. Feel for him, but that was not anyone but him. Hill could have should have took a risk when he didn't need to, hard in that moment, you cant know where you are exactly but Im sure like 08 he knew he was on a flyer, hit a rock, miss timed unfortunate but thats racing DH, its extreme and extreme stuff happens, no risk no reward, I wanted Hill to win but it is what it is, I wouldn't change what he did, its also part of why he can be so incredible, in fractions of a second of can go right or wrong skill at that speed almost doesn't come into it, its a matter of when not if that you will crash even if you are as super human as Sam Hill as he's proven, nature can take anyone down anytime. Gwin didn't turn up, great effort by Troy after Hill went down I wanted him or Rat to win! But congrats to Gee he rode a great race, deserved Champ!

 I'm in shock after watching that race. Worlds 2014 just blew my mind! What it could have been if Rat and Manon both did the double. Go team GB. Stoked for Gee gutted for Hill. 2014 was a banged for DH! Counting down the days to 2015 already.

 Congrats Manon!

 Neko No-Chain Mulally representing PA to the fullest! So good. And hats off to Josh Bryceland. To break his ankle hucking to flat at the end a World Champs-winning run is even better than gold.

 Totally sick, so fun to watch! And great coverage of the track! Only part i missed was the road gap where a certain frame snapped last year, that was a gnarly gap and turn. Gutted for Hill though. Nice to see Bulldog getting a nice run and Mullaly without a chain!! WTF just happened haha! Hope nothings wrong with Rat!

 why cut the bloody feed before the mens medals ffs

 I was quite pissed about that. I guess they thought we didn't need to hear another overly slow rendition of the national anthem with an extra verse thrown in that practically no one has thought to learn.

  • + 6
 For those saying that Sam and Josh had it in the bag, did you say the same when Loic had it in the bag when Josh took his first win? I bet yous didnt. The fact of the matter is.... It's only in the bag when the last rider has crossed the line and you're still sat on the top step

 Good show from the syndicat boys to run and help Josh...I was wondering when would someone come and check on Sam Hill, he looked like he might have a concussion, looked pretty dizzy in that finish area. Medics?

 yeah connor! you're a mad man!

 You have to feel like the gold belongs to the Rat. Just hope this won´t affect next world cup season, and that he is oK. Great to see Gee take it though, and Brosnan seems quite the gentelman, he has done an amazing season, and the humbelness he shows constantly is great.

  • + 3
 Please someone to build some decent pedals for top-top-top riders .Should be Bryceland proof.
Craziest yet funniest race seen in a looooong time. Couldn´t stop laughing at Gee´s face when, all of a sudden, Ratboy´s epic ending ruined his title celebration. Anyway, Atherton has been a true gentleman, and the image of the Ratboy in painful "extasy" shock on Peat and Minnaar´s arms is something to well stay among some of the most outstanding endings to a competition whatever the discipline you chose.
  • + 7
 Val Di Sole all over again for Hill! so gutted for him
  • + 2
 Similar, but he didn't quite have the finish line in sight where he went down this time - close enough, though. This one is Ratboy's Val Di Sole for sure...as close as you can get without getting it despite yourself.

I hope both recover 110% in the off-season - both were at the top of the game the latter-half of this season.
  • + 4
 Happy for Carpenter, she took advantage of Atherton's weakness early in the season, but has kept it going. That .088 split and the 3 secs between 2nd place shows just how hard Rachel was pushing.
  • + 5
 3 Amazing runs there, Sam Hill, Neko's and the Rat's. But Gee won it by choosing the right lines and not riding outside of himself. A great day.
  • + 2
 I love Ratboy! Love him! Add him to the list of landmark riders, Peaty Palmer, Sam, Nico, Ratboy........ However, I do have a pet hate when folk keep saying he woulda, shoulda, coulda won, we know that to be a given, or would it have been Sam Hill. We all know that DH is about fastest to the line and what happens on the way is what you do with your race run, a mistake and you lose. Our beloved Ratboy made 1 mistake and in this case it cost him the race and his foot. Ask Peaty with his many silver medals, the mistakes are all part of this Awesome sport. Ratboy didn't win because his mistake was way bigger than Gee's. Gee wins end of.. As long as Ratboy comes back to full health I wouldn't change the 2014 champs for anyone. Although I wanted Ratboy to win the historical awesomeness of the whole thing just has to stick. There aren't enough superlatives to describe how fucking brilliant downhill is, why it's not prime time simply boggles the mind. We get ski Sunday here in the uk through the skiing season, but DH is just way way better, way way more entertaining and way way more on the edge of insanity. I luv DH 4 lyf
  • + 1
 What's worse is NOBODY has said Minnaar would have won if he didn't have a slow leak, a bobble and a crash - still finishing only 10sec from gold. Wink
  • + 2
 Norbs definitely got robbed.



In all seriousness, that was one of the most intense races I've ever watched...and there's been a decent serving of those this season alone. Today was "checkers-or-wreckers" defined...with a little NFG on the side from Mulally. Gee won it (and almost lost it himself as well) fair-and-square. Nobody held back in any of the fields. Just all-out for the gold.

As gutted as I am for Hill and Bryceland, let's not forget that Minnaar (5th at split 1) only finished 10sec off the pace with both a crash (that tree to the shoulder didn't feel good at all, I'm sure) and a rear flat near the bottom. You what-iffers best re-think that what-if podium. Wink

 Dam this page has exploded Smile I have to say it pisses me off when people slate gee he is an awesome talented tough guy. And have to say it's usually the Aron f*cking Gwyn fans. Get a grip he is riding Shit just except it. That said enough respect to mulally for that awesome run I was hoping and fingers crossed for the poor guy he came so close and with no chain. Good lad hope he pulls it out of the bag next year and it's his time.

 That was absolutely mad. Mullaly was unbeatable for so many other riders after putting out that insane chainless run. No brakes, pumping all the features and crazy line selection to keep the speed up. Feel sorry for Hill and I wonder what Ratboy broke, poor lad sent it HUGE off that last jump and wouldve had it in the bag otherwise.

 Wow, I know it's free and we're lucky and all, but they really cut every corner of the broadcasting to save each and every penny. "Thanks for watching!"? What about the podium celebration for the men??! What about how ratboy's doing? I'd pay a few bucks to see such things...

 amazing but all wrong. If Gee was gonna win Rachel should have won to give them a brother and sister world champs. Ratboy was 1.35 up even though he sat down for an age, if he hadn't done that he would have crossed the line 1st with our without the broken ankle. Sam's crash was bad he was on such a good run. Shed a tear for ratboy such an awsome run.

 Just watched the replay on RBTV. What shit! What is the point of showing only part of 100+ riders runs! They showed each rider coming out of the gate then cut to the last 15 secs of the run! All the action was in the rock gardens and they kept missing them out. I appreciate the efforts of the lesser known riders and they deserve coverage but to miss out the likes of Peaty and other top riders is pathetic. I was totally frustrated throughout. Especially when Sam Hill went down ;(

 it has to do with the timing out of the gates. the last 10 down the course all have a much bigger time cushion.

 Notice how nobody is talking about Gwin anymore. Gutted for him, but he didn't look comfortable on the new bike.
  • + 3
 He's looked comfortable on it...just not today. From watching his run, he definitely looked super-tense. It will happen in due time.
  • + 3
 naw, gwin does not look good on the new ride.

hell, if ya ask me, troy looked better on his old demo carbon that he was shreddin for the first half of the season than he does on his new ride.

gwin looked great on a yeti, looked un beatable on the trek, but looks completely average on his new ride.
no zip, no railin turns, no plowing straights......

gwin can spin it how ever he wants, but he can't be happy.

he got beat by a rider with no chain on his bike, and............it was his old factory team too. the bike that took gwin to the top for 2 full seasons.


and why is eric carter spliting the big S scene after only one season?
  • + 2
 Obviously, EC fears the return of Napalm...it's so obvious. We'll see how happy he is this off-season, I'm sure. Let's not forget how he joined up with the Big S. The ONLY guys that didn't get beat by Unchained Mulally won medals.
  • + 2
 lol. ec feared palmer in dual slaloms thats for sure. i hear ya with the few dudes that beat mulally, but...gwin is supposed to be one of those dudes. all the training, and riding and whatnot won't help somebody that doesn't mesh with a certain bike design. gwin has not been gwin since he left trek. he just does not look , ride or race the same.
  • + 1
 Gwin has never won a Worlds title, even when he was "unbeatable" on a Trek. If you look at his run here at World Champs and his last WC run at Merible, he clearly took the wrong lines. He lost time because of his poor line choices- going wide when he should have stayed inside and just setting up for turns in awkward ways. His planning is for sure off but it's not disastrous. That you can relate that to how he feels on the bike is quite the leap.
  • + 1
 I think each race is its own story. He won the wc season opener, granted on a modified enduro, but he was podium a few other times and looked fast, so maybe it's as simple as he's not used to the new bike yet? and is this the same as the sam hill curse when he went to S? also, honest question, i'm not sure what you mean by "let's not forget how (EC) joined up with the Big S"
  • + 2
 i think its in reference to how and why gwin joined the big s.

he broke an agreement at the final hour with trek to do whats was best for him at the time.

would he do it again?
would he say 'later' to the big s?, give some cash back and go find a better ride?

james stewart did it with joe gibbs racing.........heres your bike, heres your cash, i'm out..........

i think it would the cats ass if gwin just rode for tld/redbull and hand picked whatever frames he wanted to.
  • + 1
 My bad...that was a reference to Gwin and not EC in regards to how they joined. Thanks for the clarification, Stacy!
  • + 2
 Oh I get it. Yeah it is kind of an egg on face situation Gwin's got going on in terms of trek vs spesh. But c'mon did they expect him to win the wc every year for the next ten years? I guess they thought he'd be another nico
  • + 2
 There will never be another Nico...not anytime soon, at least with the stacked field of riders we're currently spoiled with. Gwin was setting up to be the next best thing, but his struggles with Worlds thus far will end any comparisons between the two, IMHO.
  • + 2
 Wow... Gee needs to work on his PR. Pinkbike Relations...
  • + 4
 yeah, in his interview he said he won without a perfect ride, and gave props to Ratboy. If he only mentioned Sam Hill and how he has a Peaty shrine in his living room maybe then he'd finally get some more respect here. Gee did great today and deserves his place. That race was mad fun to watch. I just hope Ratboy crushes his physio, Steve Smith comes back to form and Sam Hill doesn't skip a beat. Add in Bruni's maturing of another year and next season is due to be even better!!!! THIS SPORT IS AWESOME

 Yes obviously... Or not. We obviously failed to spot that Brycey was almost 2 seconds up on the second split did we? Even with smashing his ankle in he came across the line less than half a second behind the G man. Which tells me that Josh's run on a whole was better than G's as he was well on his way to beating him by more than 2 seconds. Anyway that aside you read into my statement far too seriously. I was merely pointing out that is how i would have liked it to finish. Either way it's good for me.

 Brendan keeps doing what he did 5 years ago, JoshB, Ratty has learnt it takes ire than whips and no pedalling tracks, he's done the work where others have failed and it shows in the results, Brendan a top 20rider now, too much fun no effort, Josh work, fun balance and adjusted moved forward and its showing in his results, unfortunately ye had a brain explosion on that bridge and hucked for hero status and it cost him his first and amy e ever World Championship, hopefully not,but he only had to scrub whip that bridge and gold was his. Brendan would have been lucky to make the top 20, they're was still plenty of pedalling required in this track to get a great time and win, Neko, must have lost his brakes as well, suspension actually works better without a chain btw.

 Seriously Maverick? At 17th in the world, he is an awesome rider. For any country other than GB, he would be on the Worlds team. GB is just super stacked with clearly most of the best riders in the world. Without question the hardest Worlds team to qualify for. Would he win? Probably not, but he has shown us that he can place 4th at Worlds and has multiple WC podiums. That he can still be 17th in the world shows that he works hard for it. Talent to be higher might be another thing.

 I think Brendog got to the verge on which he has to decide whether to keep on riding DH professionally or to devote his time into another form of the discipline. Thruth to be said everyone expects Brendawg to perform lousy at the world cup circuit in order to follow his sorry asses complaints at instagram. Brendog was ment to be THE rider of a generation, instead he has evolved into some kind of hypster mountain biker whose greatest acomplishment is to whip and whine. I really fancied brendawg's style but he got stuck.
