 Rumour has it Nasa have spotted the dust cloud thrown up from the racing in Les Gets & are tracking it as it covers most of Europe.

 Wow, Kate Courtney on fire. Dropping everyone with 2 laps to go. Just large and in charge. When, Van Der Poel started cranking down his shoes at the beginning of final lap, you knew the race was going into warp speed after that. In poker, that is a complete tell. Lol.

 Is Nino Schurter running negative rise bars? Just judging from that picture, it appears like he still has upsweep at the grips but the middle section goes down.

 @johnnyprank: Wow, yeah just looked it up and it looks wild! I'm still waiting for them to just attach the stem straight to the (lower) fork crown with everything positive rise again. They can't spin the bars around anymore anyway nor do they need to. Then they'd probably just need a low ring with a single bolt to keep the fork in place, or maybe even integrate it with the stem cap.

 @ilyamaksimov: Looked to me like he had a strategy to stay near the front and follow the attacks. He doesn't need to animate because he's the best sprinter in the field.

 @SangamonTaylor: perhaps we will see on Sunday whether he has enough air to win)

 @ilyamaksimov: it's XCC, if you want to win you want to do it with the least amount of energy so you can win on Sunday.
