|As you can imagine this is our final video from the UCI World Cup in Lenzerheide for obvious reasons you will see in the video. But before everything kicked off we decided to make a video on what a mechanic actually does at a World Cup, I personally think they just hit a few things, take bits off and put new bits back on. Oh and drink beers. In this video you will be following around my most trusted mechanic Mike who is an absolute wizard when it comes to bikes and owns the sickest bike shop in the UK, MB Cyclery. |
Was feeling super good on the morning in practice and the downhill bike was feeling prime. That all suddenly changed when I slipped and hit the only rock in that entire section on the track. Once again more bad luck here, but I'm all good, the doctors patched me up super good and on the road to recovery for Red Bull Rampage.— Brendan Fairclough

|Lenzerheide went off...the paces was ridiculous, the course was sketchy and the fans were awesome...honestly so so good to have a noisy crowd back at the races!|
It rained a little as you'll see on my run and I blew my chances of a solid result with 2 mistakes and crazy tight times!
Frenchies killed it so fair play...see you all in the USA!— Bernard Kerr

Bit mix feelings after Lenzerheide World Cup.
Luke Meier-Smith is still recovering from the shoulder injury, Remy Meier-Smith had to pull out from the race as he injured his shoulder earlier at Val Di Sole and George Brannigan didn't make a cut for finals this time.
All eyes were on Henry Kerr as he was the only one to compete in finals at Lenzerheide. Finishing strong. 24th position in tough conditions.

I think there are a lot of perspectives on the last flat corner tape job, but I don't think 'good course design' would be one of them. Which is a shame because as a former BMXer I love this course. I love seeing a good ol scrub whip in a race run and then straight into a tree slalom steep section. But that last corner didn't flow in any way. I think it was a safety measure to prevent huck to flats. Not elegant, but effective imo
Also I'm really bummed Kaos didn't qualify and flip the booter. Fingers crossed he qualifies in Snowshoe... A man can dream!!
As you say, not elegant, but all they could do given the time before the race.
