DH & XC World Champs Teams Announced
@bizutch: You're an idiot. Seriously, you have no clue what it takes to get to this level of racing. Max is a great racer and person and so is Nik. But let's review: First, check the ProGrt overall standings after this weekend's Tamarak results are posted. Second, Nik is a very young 18 and traveled through Europe living out of a Honda Civic, doing all his own wrenching, cooking etc. A lot to consider for a young person let alone racing at the highest level. Second, you have no clue about weather conditions, lost bike, lost gear, etc that affects racers. And yes, Max had a slightly faster time than Nik at Nationals....Did you know Nik was air lifted out of Andorra the weekend before???? And couldn't hardly walk at Nationals? No you didn't. So while it isn't always easy for USAC to make decisions....don't take it away from someone who earned it.
