 Wouldn't it have been cool if Rheeder actually raced instead of just taking up a spot that could have gone to someone else? If he got injured during the series....excuse my doucheyness, but it seems like he just raced one or two and then disappeared? I was stoked to see him compete....and then it didn't happen. :/

 I think he is coming off a surgery

 @nikoshieh: Yeah, I vaguely heard something about that. Guess my point is then why would he race if he can/will only do like 1 event? Let some other person go and get their racing legs going for the "season". They hugely limited the # of people invited to this so I am sure there are some young BC rippers that would have loved to have a shot.

 Don't think there was a cap on the riders who could have participated. Who cares, it was more of local fun race for BC locals not world cup nationals. It was just cool to see a freeride legend rage on the DH track.

 There were 24 invited riders only, who competed in an all or nothing format. There were 16 men in all events which made for an even number in the ladders at dual slalom. Smile
Brett wanted to race dh and was an addition to the dh events only. Sadly ended up hurting his elbow last week and had to skip this week.

 Brett planned on racing more - he was inured. Jake Jewett, another racer, injured. They want to race. Believe me, we all wanted to see more of all the athletes. (Brett, Jake, Ainhoa, Lucas, Leonie), but injuries happen and there was no substituting others into the bubble.

 @slayerdegnar: Yes, there was a cap. BC is in Stage 3, limiting how many people can gather. Athletes + Staff to run the event, every head counted.

 I'm still confused as to what Air DH exactly is. Is it just a downhill race where the course is just a black diamond flow trail? Do you get points for whips or is it just pure speed?

 Going fast on a flow trail require more skill than you think.

 I mean not overshooting the jumps

 still pure speed. but if you throw in whips I promise ill root for you.

 So what about the other two field test bikes that are obviously being deferred to next week? Why not give us pinkbikers some fantastic content to start our weekend? Smile

 @ybsurf: just echoing the chatter in the room. You should try to keep it fun it's a lot more fun than being a negative troll
