 He probably means that this famous JBC race was still ran under the UCI (yop, they are still there! all the judges and so on. It isn't the official world cup, but still UCI C1 race) Wink

 Adam you might be thinking of dual slalom back in the day. When dual was dropped in favour of 4X that's when the DHers stopped racing because they were more likely to be injured/crash before their main event. The likelihood of crashing into another rider in dual is very low, in 4X, very high.

 @iamamodel Not true, there were more crashes in dual slalom than in 4X, the tracks were much more narrow so the riders would likely crash into each other on the turns and the lack of berms meant they also crash into spectators too.
Most downhill riders carryed on riding 4X as it sat side by side with the downhill world cup, it was just the thing to do.
Still had people like the Athertons, Steve Peat, Cedric Gracia etc. riding 4X for many years.

 I'm guessing there's a typo on the women's final standings since Oetjen has a faster time than Beerten but finished 2nd??
  • 4 0
 No that is qualification times. Beerten won

 I don't think so, if you look at the top of each page it say's they're the qualification times, not the times they did during the final/race run Smile
