Lenzerheide Announces Details for MTB World Championships
Worlds history is littered with unexpected results, Nico double flatting in Sierra Nevada handed Myles Rockwell the win, Palmer crashed out when hands down the favourite, HB cut the course in 1990 and was crowned champion. Not to mention weather affected results in the WC like Gary Houseman winning Grouse Mountain WC from nowhere when the rain came down halfway through finals. Everyone given an opportunity last year and Miranda got down the hill quickest, despite other riders being on probably faster runs they crashed and she stayed on the bike to record the fastest run of the day when it counted, props to her for that. By the logic on here, Gee shouldn't have been 2008 champ because Hill was clearly faster until he crashed.

Video: Danny Hart Hits Warp Speed Down Champéry's World Champs Track
@hexhamstu: Yeah this is about as good as exists I think, no proper race run footage, having said that they're displaying it on the screens in that section so it must be on a disk somewhere.

Video: Danny Hart Hits Warp Speed Down Champéry's World Champs Track
@drjonnywonderboy: I'd agree with this at the moment, did you ride it in 2007 though? For reference I've spent a lot of time riding tracks in and around the PdS so am well familiar with a lot of the sneaky tracks.

@russthedog: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAg0PHGHOJk I think it might be what's shown on the laptop in the first shot in this?

@russthedog: It's so unfortunate that it was the year before Freecaster so there's very little footage from the event, he won qualifying by 14 seconds over Pascal when everyone rode in the dry. Apparently he had an over the bars in the race run too but with the lack of footage who knows!

@russthedog: The next fastest rider after Sam who rode in the wet (Mickael Pascal from memory, could be wrong) was 27 seconds behind him.

The 2007 track was a totally different beast to the 2011 worlds or the current track, 2011 and current were/are tracks rideable for most advanced or competent riders despite being extremely hard, the '07 version was ridiculous. Sam's run in '07 in the wet for 3rd is, for my money at least, in a completely different league to Danny's run in '11 when it was wet for everyone.

Ask Pinkbike: Coil Shocks on Trail Bikes, Changing Fork Travel, and Drivetrain Upgrades
@nvranka: See this amuses me and I think probably highlights the differences in styles of trails. I have literally no idea what your local in the US is like, but here in Wales a lot of tracks are steeper, rougher and softer (although right now everything is baked solid) and a soft tyre works incredibly well. I tend to run mine between 18 and 25 psi dependent on the trail I'm riding and conditions.

First Look: Öhlins DH Race Fork
@veero: When I got into downhill bikes in 2001 a cherry red boxxer at the time was about or just over £1000, from memory. There was a period then in 2003 onwards when Rockshox released the race (£300?), team (£600?) and World Cup (£900?). So it does seem to have got a bit more expensive than inflation for the top end kit, but then again you could argue that with the advent of mail order bikes it's never been more affordable to get into dh. What I do think is ridiculous is the RRP on a boxxer race now being £900.
