The Jungle Bites Back: Pits and Practice - Cairns DH World Cup 2016

Carnage was the word of the day. All it took was one miscalculated landing or the simple slip of a tire and suddenly there'd be broken bodies, bikes, and bits strewn everywhere. The jungle's a gnarly place, and even if the weather isn't playing havoc, it will find a way to let you know who's boss.

Three consecutive crashes on the same part of the track put an end to Group B practice, and closed the course for almost three hours. With no helicopter available to winch the broken riders out, the only option was the long and precarious walk to the nearest access road. Riders that were above the disaster zone got to join the Wait Awhile vines in the forest as the injured were evacuated.

Once the track was clear again, Group A practice dived straight into a tropical downpour, causing pile-ups in the rock garden and chaos on the rest of the greasy slopes. Aaron Gwin, Danny Hart, and Loic Bruni were perhaps the trio of standout performers amongst the action. Everybody was praying that the weather would hold up, but it looks like Mother Nature might want to stamp her dominance in the battlegrounds of Cairns once again.

 If you have poor access, and delays of multiple hours as injured riders have no choice but to be carted elsewhere before going to hospital . . . Then maybe, just maybe it should not be the location for a world level event that poses a lot of risk to participants?

Not hating, I think it is gonna be a great race, but still . . .
  • + 28
 Very good point, every minute counts especially where head injuries are involved. As much as we all love seeing our favourite riders throw themselves full pelt down a mountain we want them to come through unscathed. Hopefully improving weather conditions will help give us fewer crashes tomorrow
  • + 68
 Nah, she'll be right mate.
  • + 15
 It does seem unacceptable at this level of racing. It's baffling that there is no on-site doctor/clinic or concussion protocol for how easily you can crash and knock your head.
  • + 8
 It is mountain biking. By it's very nature you are away from roads, hospitals, etc.
  • + 36
 @westeast: That makes little sense. It is an 'organised' world class level event. Not some random people going off for a jolly in the hills on their own.

 @matadorCE: there is and are, the paramedics you can see in the pictures are the gold standard, they specialize in treating and stabilizing acute trauma, not sure why a doctor on site will be beneficial above this?
  • + 5
 @matadorCE: Many riders simply refuse to accept the medics suggestions. We usually have a whole bunch of medics at our races and it happens here as well. The medics are always pushing for the rider to stay immobile but the majority of time either the rider or one of the riders friends/family end up deciding they know whats best.

I should add though that the lack of access at this event is insane for a world cup.
  • + 14
 its a world cup uci race and the uplift and the medical protocol are straight up wack.

standards need to be set.

medical, logistical, and such need to be dialed in.

fis dh skiing makes this look like a local race.

why is mtb soooo scared of copying fis dh when it comes to certain protocols is waaaaaay beyond me.
its already laid out in front of you, open your eyes and just copy what they have developed over the last 50, yes 50 years.


will it take a death? hopefully not.

by the way, each second ticking on the clock can mean recovery or no recovery for spinal injuries.

an extra hour can and will confine you to a wheelchair for life.
many injuries are very time sensitive. remember cedric's leg? time and quick thinking and actions saved that dude.

 Great shot of Rachael in the rock garden. The lack of helicopter meant that injured riders had to be arduously carried away, a precarious and long journey to the 4WD ambulance. Heal up wheel up come back now rewind.

 I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that they didn't have the helicopter available for "timed practice", but for the qualies and race day they will have one on stand-by. Not to say that the riders don't deserve the best support every day, but just guessing that from a logistical standpoint is commonplace to not have the same level of support today as they would on race day.

 @beeriggs: do you understand what is required to have a medical helicopter "on standby" for a cute little mountain bike race? - there's 50 bigger events going on in QLD this weekend probably. And you can count the number of helicopters available in the entire state for the general public on one hand.....good luck.

 @robaussie99: you're absolutely right. This is a niche sport.

 your right, but in andorra they had an helicopter, and still the race was stopped more than an hour! even tough you can have a helicopter, it can only lift an injured athetle in a clear field... they still have to carry him to a wide open space
  • + 1
 @beeriggs: No. They just have nowhere to land a helicopter at all nearby.
  • + 122
 No helicopters huh? That could mean the difference between life and death, that seems unacceptable.
  • + 13
 This happens with Helicopters more than you might think. They can be in maintenance or in use or the pilots are not available. when you make that call your not always gonna get what u want. It can can be very frustrating.
  • + 32
 in ski races there has to be at least one helicopter otherwise there is no race. should be the same in DH
  • + 13
 There is a Rescue Helicopter/s in Cairns which has to service a large area. I just imagine that the crashes weren't big enough/non life threatening to warrant a chopper ride out.
  • + 8
 Heli can't land in the bush and not easy to winch out from under trees either. Plus it's only 20min from the site to Cairns hospital so probably quicker to drive anyway.
  • + 1
 Helicopters also aren't needed for fractured wrists and concussions, only actual life threatening injuries, otherwise there would have been one called.
  • + 5
 get to the choppa, NOW!
  • + 8
 Outside the Alps or the Pyrenees, most places in the world do not have the capability to mount the sort of patient evacuation you are thinking of. Hoisting the injured up in a basket through jungle canopy, to a hovering helicopter is an insanely risky operation, and requires a highly trained team to safely accomplish...pilot, winch operator, and medic at a minimum. Not to mention the specialized equipment required, including a helicopter with a hoist--a rarity. In the Alps, high alpine rescue is used frequently, and justifies maintaining the required capability, but most places in the world will spend the money on something else.
  • + 3
 @kabanosipyvo: precisely, not to mention it's a publicly funded service available to every citizen of QLD, they're not going to dedicate a multi million dollar helicopter to a mountain bike race, if that was necessary, they'd cancel the race as it's not financially viable anymore.
  • + 1
 @Gronzdog: The problem was that the hole didn't have the winch attached at the time and it would've taken longer to get it set up than it did for the ambo's to get in.

@smuggly: It wasn't just a fractured wrist. Baxter was unconscious for over an hour and has serious swelling to his brain - he was put into a coma when he got to hospital. It was life threatening and if they took any longer it could have resulted in a much worse outcome.

 My inner bike mechanic nerdiness just went from 6 to Midnight seeing Minaar using resin and metallic pad combos to combat overheating. So tech.
  • + 2
 whats the advantage of resin pads? I've always heard they wear out faster
  • + 2
 @chize: They're a softer material, they have more braking power, don't squeal in the wet, and you chew through them in comparison to a metallic one.
  • + 5
 @chize: That doesn't matter if you have stacks of them in the pits.
  • + 5
 @chize: I've always felt that metallic last longer and give you more raw stopping power, but resin provide better modulation.
  • + 4
 @Clarkeh: They actually have less overall power than metal pads, but way better modulation.

 pretty sure tyler morland was doing this back when he was winning mt 7 days.......
alot of dudes probably were, might be an old school trick by the sc crew? they got knowledge

he told me to try it, and damn it does make a diff.

ran out of the softer pads and just never re upped.
if you have unlimited resources....why not?

bike nerds rule.
  • + 1
 Minnaar has said previously that he uses the organic pads because he has a tendency to slightly drag his brakes, this tends to heat up metallic pads more quickly. I'm assuming the metal/resin combo is meant to split the difference a bit so he still has greater breaking power when he needs it.
  • + 1
 @chize organic is better. It gives you the best braking. No shitty sounds in the wet too

No, he won't. This probably isn't his first knockout, won't be his last. At 17, he may not be aware he's on the fast track for a lifetime of debilitating illness. It's too late for alot of athletes, but lets hope, at his age, he's going to start getting the care and proper advice to help prevent further damage.

 No sure why your being downvoted, a lot of good research in the last few years has shown that a 'simple' concussion is brain damage and permanent. Multiple concussion over a career are have a cumulative effect and are catastrophic.

 @smuggly: Getting down graded, cause crashes are "cool", editors use it as clickbait.

 @Trallafitti, it's a harmonic damper comprised of two pieces of rubber with a brass center piece. It supposedly helps reduce brake chatter and noise. We first spotted it at Leogang last year: www.pinkbike.com/news/randoms-from-the-pits-world-cup-dh-leogang-2015.html

 that is a vibration damper. Supposedly used to keep the caliper and rotor from vibrating (read, squealing). More info here:
