 Reckon Mike Jones has a real chance of podium! Great to see him back up to speed

 @murfio: I thought he'd turned all his ribs into milk powder, but then he just got back on his bike.
  • + 3
 @Grouty2505: was a savage slam. Mass respect, he must be made of carbon nano tubed and titanium bones... He is a tough mudder!!!

 I'm here in Leogang and the rumour is that those results mean nothing.

 I'm not in Leogang but I just had a refreshing beer. Now that means something.

 Has Sam Hill retired??? Anyone know whats up with him lately? Hes not really being very Sam Hill'ish this past while.
  • + 0
 Yeah and nobody knows what's going on.. Neethling is even up there and I thought he was semi retired.
  • + 13
 He's returning from injury, he's getting old, he's struggling a bit with his bike (he just had a custom one made for him with a "new" geometry), and it's timed training which he never, ever showed his cards at.

 @ka-brap: Lol, he's 30. He's not old... Minnaar is 34
  • + 4
 @vroomvroompartystarter: I said he's getting old, there's a difference. Plus he's 30 (31 in a month) with multiple season ending injuries that keep coming back to haunt him. That's hardly a recipe for success in World Cup downhill.

 Never understood the Sam Hill enthusiasm. Guy is a has been. Nothing personal but look at his results in the last few years. Not everyone can race at an elite level for their entire career.
  • + 16
 @Powderface: Two wins on two of the toughest tracks around and 4th place in the overall standings in 2014 isn't what i'd class as a has been.
And he was pretty much injured all of last season. I reckon there is still more to come.
  • + 7
 @Powderface: in the last few years? He has two WC dh wins with a handful of top 10's finishes and plenty of national wins. He still has speed. I agree he was consistently faster several years ago but he's had several big injuries to recover from that have sidelined training and fitness. I believe if he gets in the mindset and his fitness is where he needs it, it wouldn't be suprising if he gets on the podium again.

 @ramymcc22 Hill finished 21st in Fort Bill. Hopefully he'll be getting back to form this year. Minnaar also didn't start well, but smashed everyone last week. Hill won 2 races in 2014, so don't count him off.

 After his second place in an enduro, I was expecting him to be seriously fit and injury-free. Enigmatic.

 Sam unfortunately injured himself in timed training yesterday and will not be racing this weekend.
  • + 5
 Brayton on form! Had to podium! Would be so good if he maintains this sort of form!
  • + 3
 Imagine having to pic the worlds team for the Brits this yeah, tough job.
  • + 4
 Phil Atwill would be a sweet win for this track. Especially if he runs slicks. Smile

 falt pedals win medals...

 I'm going to go out on a limb and guess Gwin qualifies and finishes better than 66th, with or without a chain.

 What happened to Sam Hill?

 Don't panic. It's just timed training. Sometimes not everybody bothers with a full run.
