 These young Brits are going to do some damage on the WC circuit this year, I can feel it in my bones!

 Agree! There is some really exciting youth coming to the WC's this year, going to shuffle the pack up I think!

 Good to see Rachel is on form again. Was worried she might be on her way into retirement after last years bad luck. Men's WC is going to be more competitive than ever.

 Yes to both. That result shows that her pace is back and I’m happy if she cleans up again, as she deserves it.

 And if Rachel is on form women's field will be as non competitive as ever! Weee!

 No offence but her retirement would bring some competition back in the woman’s field

 @RedBurn: I disagree. The other women need to improve their performance to match and beat her. She will have a target on her back this year. Some of the women like Seagrave and Nicole are showing promise.

 One of the other elite ladies crashed and they got red flagged on track I believe!
