@grundletroll: you do realize she was knocked out cold? She wasn't just laying there. There's some video footage shot from the side that will likely surface in the next few days that shows just how gnarly the whole thing was.

@WaterBear: yup that's all in the first 2 mins of track or so... Then remaining minute is the one that's a bit mediocre.

@lebikeman: they race in UCI ranking order. Troy is last down... Danny has the #1 plate as defending champ but will start a few spots back.

Rachel crashed up top and reinjured her shoulder. Questionable whether she will race Sunday

@makripper: I'm not sure I follow? uci DH had been around since the early 1990's. As for coverage before RB we had freecaster, and prior to that some pretty terrible coverage via OLN in the states, or if you were lucky you could find coverage on Eurosport (most of which are now on YouTube and quite eye opening as to the roots if the sport). The biggest part the UCI has played over the years is with sponsorship. The WC has not had a title sponsor in 10 years since Nisan left (if you don't count them getting scammed by Rocky Roads). Anyone who has spent years around there races can plainly see the lack of effort they now put in, and if it were not for Red Bulls investment I'm not sure the UCI would be able or willing to promote the sport and bring it to a large audience. Until the UCI matches the passion and commitment of others doing the work to grow the sport, then it will remain at a standstill with the same old venues and tracks, limited to no outside sponsor interest, etc.

@WaterBear: the track gets a bad wrap because of the bottom and the finish. The fist half really is quite good, but once riders get to the whoops at the mod point the track pretty much turns into a basic flat trail ride.

@makripper: don't confuse the UCI with Red Bull and their investment into the live broacasts fom the World Cup. The two are not interchangeable..

@scott-townes: he'd be a good fit for the UCI from the sounds of it.

@mollow: awww you're cute... Uci constitutes 7-8 weekends a year. Crankworx, FMB, Enduro World Series, etc etc have zero UCI affiliation. The sport would be as good or better without then... And since you sound so concerned, I'd still have no trouble paying the mortgage ;-)
