Live Updates

4:18 am PDT Florent Payet is the first down the hill for his last major downhill race before retirement.

4:20 am PDT Florent clears the huge new jumps despite a very nose-heavy landing.

4:22 am PDT The first time of the day is 2:37.436 for Florent Payet. 15 seconds back from Bernard Kerr's top qualifier.

4:24 am PDT David McMillan goes down in the top woods before the rock drop. It was a slow-speed crash and he is quickly back up on his bike.

4:26 am PDT David completes his run with a time of 3:16.616, 39 seconds back.

4:29 am PDT Vinny T sends a massive flip on the step-up jump while also being one second up on Florent Payet.

4:31 am PDT A wild run from Vinny T puts him three and a half seconds back and into 2nd.

4:35 am PDT Chris Cumming seems to have an issue with his bike as he pulls out of hitting one of the big gaps.

4:36 am PDT Chris has checked over his bike and seems happy enough to hit the rest of the course.

4:36 am PDT Gaetan Vigé was up by almost two seconds at the top of the course but a mistake just after the split will have cost a lot of time.

4:41 am PDT Gaetan tries a huge flip on the step-up but slides out on the landing. He doesn't seem to be injured and starts making his way down the rest of the course.

4:43 am PDT 37 seconds back and into third so far for Gaetan Vigé.

4:45 am PDT Ronan Dunne is up by 2.3 seconds at the first split.

4:46 am PDT The lead is extended to almost ten seconds after the road gap.

4:47 am PDT Ronan Dunne goes fastest by 10.163 seconds with a time of 2:27.273. This time would have been good enough for 3rd in qualifying.

4:51 am PDT Taylor Vernon pulls back time all the way down the course to go fastest by just 0.189 seconds!

4:53 am PDT A big crash for Craig Evans just as he goes through the first split. The track is looking very slippery at the top of the course.

4:59 am PDT Harry Molloy is just 0.059 up at split one. Taylor Vernon got faster as he went down so it could be tough to stay ahead.

5:01 am PDT Just 4.630 seconds back and into third for Harry Molloy.

5:04 am PDT Theo Erlangsen was getting loose on the huge jumps but goes over the bars before the road gap.

4th. Florent Payet: 2:37.436
5th. Vinny T: 2:40.951

5:06 am PDT Pinkbike Racing's Thibault Laly is next up to take a run.

5:11 am PDT Thibault has a smooth run and goes across the line in fourth place.

5:17 am PDT After losing time at the top of the course Sam Gale pulls back some of the gap at the bottom to go into third.

5:21 am PDT Gee Atherton is back racing and manages to be in touch at the first split.

5:23 am PDT It's great to see Gee back and he will definitely be happy with a third place so far today.

5:29 am PDT Joe Smith goes 0.002 up at split one and he extends to a quarter of a second at the next split.

5:31 am PDT By just 0.041 seconds Joe Smith takes the lead with five riders left.

5:36 am PDT Jim Monro puts down a solid run to find himself in sixth.

5:38 am PDT Charlie Hatton slides out on the first right-hand turn. The first turn looks completely blown out.

5:45 am PDT Jackson Goldstone flies out of the start going over half a second up at split one.

5:47 am PDT What a run! Jackson is absolutely flying today and finds over six and a half seconds to go fastest.

5:51 am PDT Adam Brayton was up at the first split but slides out in the top woods. Only one rider can stop Jackson Goldstone from winning today.

5:54 am PDT Bernard Kerr is the last rider left and despite carrying a few injuries we wouldn't rule him out for the win.

5:57 am PDT Disaster for Bernard as he crashes into the entrance of the woods at the top. Jackson Goldstone will take the win and become the first rider since the second Hardline to go fastest at their first time here.

 I wanna back your statement up. Jackson has to be one of the nicest and most respectful people in mountainbiking today. I've been a whistler local for the past decade, and every interaction with him has been positive. His genuine level of stoke for the sport and everybody in it is contagious. Pumped to see him take the win. Truly deserving!

 @adamszymkowicz: Growing up I didn't have much money. It was just me and my mom. She did the best she could, but I grew up watching alot of other kids I knew riding brand new bikes, and I won't lie, I was super jealous.
My first real bike was a Cove Stiffie FR with a Marzocchi Z5 on the front. It was second hand, and my mom made payments to the kids family we bought it off. This was back in 2002, I think it was 13 or 14, I can't remember.
Eventually I posted that frame up on Pinkbike back in the early days, and somebody traded me a 1999 Stab primo frame strait up for it.
I ended up saving money from birthdays and Christmas to buy a second hand set of Marzocchi Shivers from a buddy of mine after selling the Z5s I had.
My first downhill bike!! You can see it in my photos actually. Eventually I sold that frame, and got a part tike job working at Canadian tire where I saved up enough to buy a brand new 2002 Kona Stab Primo, brand new frame off the wall at Cove bikes. My first "New" bike part.
From then on I started wrenching to male money and dumpster dived local bike shops for busted parts that could be fixed and sold on pinkbike. I've bought and sold many bikes and parts over the years.
Eventually I built my dream bike... Eventually I built more and more.
My most recent was a V10 - 29er with reserve wheels, chris king everything. It was absolutely brilliant.
You see, where I'm going with this, is I stopped asking why I don't have something.... I ask how I can get it.
All that aside, you could throw Jackson on my old 1999 Stab primo, and I'm certain he would have the same results. This kid is a true once in a lifetime talent. He is the real deal.
I'm gonna leave you with that rather than respond with something just as negative.

 @jomacba: Listen, I'm not saying that Jackson is a bad kid or not. That's not the point. The point is that mountain biking is a sport of privilege for ALL of us who participate. Bikes cost big money, and regardless of how much you had to scrape and save to buy your first bike, that you were in a position to do so indicates a significant amount of unrecognized privilege. If you look at the top pros in sports analogous to mountain biking (skiing, snowboarding, I dunno, yacht racing?) 100 times out of 100 they are placed in a position to succeed by their wealth. That's not to say that they're all multiple houses and private islands rich, but they're also not living off government assistance, or moving from low income housing project to project every three months. Let's not pretend that Goldstone is in the position he is based on his talent alone, there's a huge amount of PR, training, etc. that has gone into creating not only his identity as an athlete, but also his brand. He's literally been marketed as an athlete since he was in kindergarten! He's super successful, and that's cool! All that said, you could've had his talent, and not made it to where he is based on your family situation, while he may still have gotten a shot even if he wasn't quite as talented as he is.
  • 9 1
 @adamszymkowicz: you have no idea on the status of his, or any other racer. You also don't seem to understand how sponsorship works.
  • 10 0
 @adamszymkowicz: You could absolutely be right. I assume by your participation on this forum you too are a person of privilege.
Again, my intent here isn't to slander or call you out, I'd rather quite simply have a constructive debate.
So to my counter point... which somewhat aligns with your statement.
This quite simply falls under the category of "life isn't fair". However, consider this. How many over privileged rich kids do you think have been given everything they have ever wanted and more, yet have done absolutely nothing with the opportunity? I would bet it's over a million to one. While yes, Jackson's parents have supported both him and his sister in bringing them to the top of this sport, a sport which is definitely more expensive. My point however was to say that if you want something bad enough, you will find a way.
Listen, I'm a parent. I have two kids myself. My daughter who is 18 has had the privilege of riding and racing mountain bikes around the world. The Majority of the support has come from myself and my wife.
It's our responsibility as parents to try and elevate our kids to become whatever it is they dream of. That's the goal. That has also required alot of sacrifice on my end, long hours working a career I don't particularly love to pay for these things.
You see, I don't think it's fair to everybody involved behind the scenes who have given so much to allow for somebody like Jacson to realize his full potential. Him being marketed at such a yough age is one of the factors in his success yes, but primarily in order to secure support from the industry. The very fact he is as nice of a person he is, and the fact he has not wasted his opportunity to be is the prime reason I fully disagree with your perspective that backs your original statement.
It's quite easy to judge others when you don't know the whole story.

 @jomacba: Agreed. While Jackson has been given a lot of opportunities to succeed, he also has the raw talent and drive to make the most of those opportunities. He's been in the (mtn bike) public eye since he was a kid, but still seems to have his head screwed on well. I'd say his parents have done well.
I recently rewatched the Sam Reynolds video of Loose Fest 2020 where Jackson was riding. Prior to him starting to race World Cups. No Red Bull helmet, but he did have what looked to be a fairly solid Trek sponsorship. Part of me wonders if Trek regrets letting him go.

 @adamszymkowicz: I race yachts, I didn’t come from wealth. I went to marinas and made myself available to racers looking for crew. When I was on board I learned the jobs and got proficient at all of them. In a short time I was being called to crew since I was skilled, proficient, and available. After a couple of years I was able to distinguish myself in a particular class of boats and then I was in demand, I got paid to sail, people would send me plane tickets to go sail all over the world and I basically worked a 9-5 to support myself in the hours where I wasn’t crewing. I still don’t have wealth, but I want my daughters to sail and ride, so they have nice bikes and I’ll take them sailing whenever and pay for sail camp so they too can be proficient sailors and, if they choose, have the opportunity to go beautiful places and see unique things from the deck of a small sailboat.

 @BikesBoatsNJeeps @adamszymkowicz: As Jay Hamm (recent Trail ROTY and UK digger) says "you gonna have to want it". He's more talking about digging at the trails for a place to ride but the same can be said of doing what needs to be done for your passion even if you are hard for cash. Like going to marinas to get into sailing, someone that wants a bike could go to bike shops and piece something together. It will take time and work. New bikes are expensive but I've had a lot of fun and learned a lot on HT's from the 80's which people practically throw away these days. And once you have a bike riding it is free. Using NYC as an example of a place with various income levels and no mtns - there are many places to ride - Mullally Bike Park, Cunningham, HighBridge.

I would say that being from Squamish has helped Jackson a lot but I've seen lots of incredible riders come from small towns not near any big mountains. Some of the best BMX riders ever have come from little towns here in NJ and with modest means. (starting on a BMX bike will be less expensive and IMO the rider will learn much better skills and there is ridable terrain everywhere)

Props to Jackson on the win - that was a run for the books. That kid can ride a bike and it takes more than money and growing up in a mtn town to be that good.

 @BikesBoatsNJeeps: Dude, you live in an area with an average income well over the national average. You literally race yachts and said you've bought nice bikes for your kids and take them sailing and pay for sail camp. That's wealth. You were in a position to make yourself available to racing crews at marinas. That's also privilege and wealth. Just because you're looking up the hill at people who have more money than you doesn't make you not wealthy. Just because you've worked hard for what you have doesn't mean you haven't benefitted from privilege. Again, I think too many of us think that wealth is multiple houses and cars and exotic vacations all the time. I own a house. I have a couple nice bikes. I'm not rich, but I'm damn wealthy compared to most, and the fact that my job and lifestyle allows me to do the things I enjoy is privilege.

 @adamszymkowicz: Can you explain the fundamental motivation behind your original post? You say you own your own home and you yourself have "wealth". To be completely honest, it appears that you are navigating away from your original statement focusing on being "rich" which one could only assume you are referring to monetary riches, vs now wealth, and diving into the broader spectrum not directly focused on money, but more the wealth of having potential for opportunities due to location and circumstances, ect.
As I had mentioned before, you yourself are a contributor to these forums which typically means you are lucky enough to be a part of this sport we all love, but have gone further to admit you too are a person of privilege. I'm just very curious why the negative comment to begin with.
  • 3 0
 @adamszymkowicz: OK, normally I don't bite on these.

I take exception to your post that Jackson's success is because he comes from a "rich" background. I do agree that most of us who enjoy our sport come from a position where we can afford the luxury of an expensive sport, however your comments indicate his skill comes from something other than his passion, dedication and hard work.

I have been a Government worker (Park Ranger) in Squamish for 30+ years. Not exactly a profession one does to become rich, but one I enjoy.
We moved to Squamish long before was the attractive town it is now, and I feel proud I was part of the development of the trail network here through building and advocacy work. I don't doubt that the environment of living in Squamish has been an advantage for his development, however the core of his success has always been internal first, and something we have be able to support and encourage. We were fortunate that the "industry" recognized him early and supported is development through sponsorships. His kindergarten video was a huge part of his "fame" and unexpectedly opened a lot of doors and opportunity, but it wasn't something that was meant to be crafted or marketed. I think the filming quality (or lack of) proves that!

I'm not claiming that his story is a Venus Williams or Tiger Woods rise from unlikely upbringing, but he is a great example of how dedication to a passion can help you achieve dreams.

 @peytodog: Ok, this is going to be the last one. I didn't say anything about his skill, or his dedication, or his passion. I referred to his position as coming from wealth. There are other kids out there who have the skill, passion and dedication, and lack the necessary entry point. From what people are saying, Jackson sounds like a fine kid, and that's great. He's definitely a prodigy. Kudos to him and his family for getting him there, and I hope he stays at the top of the sport for a long time.

 @Mtn-Goat-13: Not saying that Jackson isn't going to jump right into Elite and destroy (I think he will) BUT since Juniors are always first, and the track tends to get worse throughout the day, this is generally the trend. This isn't a new concept this year. To deny there is an impact between start times is foolish.

 @dresendsit: foolish indeed.
Race even a nationals and come down first in vets compared to the hot end (where I normally come down), the track is way better at the hot end, later in the field than it is earlier.
Everyone who doesn't race thinks the track gets worse, but the later you come down can be an advantage as more riders are riding the same line.

(Current UK over 45s DH champ and was leading the national series until I broke my wrist a few weeks ago training).

 Wow who took the jam out of your doughnut?

The kid is incredible, smashed it by a huge margin & deserved the win. Racing is racing, tracks blow up, racers push on & some crash.
  • 4 3
 @dresendsit: Agreed and agreed - I can't say Jax or Jordan will immediately kill it but you also make the point (earlier rides vs deteriorating track) for Jax - he rode 2nd to last this time & nuked everyone by 6.5… shows that his control is insane. But also w/ UCI / WC - the track is getting beaten for days on end before the race so does even some daily cleanup / restructing add that much? I dunno - Im not on that level but from Jax (and even Jordans gopros - they often took lines many elites would not.

But I think here’s the factor is that there have been a lot of fast racers in the World Cup in the past but the level that Jordan and Jackson put up this year is just intense, and I think Jax proved it hands down today

 @Jordanh604: it's completely legit to say a race run 4 hours earlier in the day cannot be compared directly against the last couple runs of the day though.I super excited for next year when we can get a definitive answer (spoiler: the kid is going to do really, really well)

 I’ve been watching Jackson race locally since he was like 11. He’s always been next level. I think in one Dry Hill race at like 14 he was stronger most some sections than any junior or pro and he barely fit on his bike at that point.

 @Mtn-Goat-13: but at World Cup they re not in the same conditions at all. And that s what people have been arguing about. There are approx 300 runs on the track between the junior race in the am, and the elite race in the afternoon.

Here however, same conditions and same time of the day, and he is fast. So it will be good to see how he stacks in the elite next year, and there will be not arguing on each side about it.

 @plyawn: The better comparison is junior race times against elite qualifying, since the juniors race the next day after elites finish qualifying. The track is thrashed from qualifying and the juniors have to race on it.
  • 1 1
 @redmountaingoat: I hear ya on that bit even if ya compare pro men start to finish, huge field, hardly the the same track begin yo finish but the final men racers seem to nuke it every time, even w/ some rain at times as seen at Val Di Sol. Its just never gonna be the same - thats racing. Weather being the same, 1st to last racer conditions is less an issue at womens or Jrs races because there are so many less riders. But sure - this was about 30 riders in relatively same conditions - except as we saw Hatton pointing out the blown out berm - conditions got worse / tracked out - yet Jax bumped everyone by 6.5.

Everyone

The kid is just on another level. This race kinda made UCI/WC look a little tame - kid went next to last and smoked it.

Btw check out all the excuses on his Val Di Sol run on Vitalmtb podcast from today - to hear that and then see Jax win by 6.5 puts all the commentary in perspective in my view. To be sure I don't give 3 shits who wins or by how much - the race alone is good enough and I admire all the riders. I just dont care for endless apologies & season-long excuses on why Jax’ or Jordans runs weren't quite the fastest as they obviously are

 No excuses. He won fair and square. You have to finish the race to win it. Others may have said they were green before the crash. Well maybe he has the optimum time not to crash and he would've crashed if he went faster. Jackson built time further and he's done some lines that others didn't and the way he did it was on another level and despite of the head wind he leaned right into it and still kept getting faster.

 @Jordanh604: I commented about what excuse they’d have about Jordan getting FTD and got a ton of downvotes.

 @dresendsit: Right, we've all heard it. Now lets use some numbers. Lets look at the last freak junior, Thibaut Daprela. In 2019, his final year in Juniors, the closet he came to the mens time was +7 seconds, that margin occoured consitently 4 times that season, and one result at +8. Okay, fast forward to 2020 in elites, weird season however he turned up at the double hiters and put down 3 runs at +3 and one +2 on the winning elite time. In 2021 he won his first race, and has been consistent ever since. (these numbers are reflected in his 2018 times too, including Kades worlds time also 7 seconds slower than the mens)

Obviously there are so many variables, maybe that year was shit for juniors, maybe it rained over night every time, maybe it was completely opposite to this years changing conditions...hmmmm.

Bare in mind that acording to these numbers, Jordan Williams and Jackson Goldstone have runs that are 10 SECONDS FASTER than Daprela was, using +/- elite winning time as a reference. That means that unless Daprela found 7 seconds in 1 off season (Without accounting for shiter conditions acording to the narative, which is suposedly worth atleast 4 seconds).



Kinda makes the argument of conditions redundent if you ask me. But thats only 1 rider, Finns 2017 results are much the same, He's faster than Daprela on some but not as consistent, hes in the +5-10 range all season excluding Mt St Anne where it f*cking hosed down, and he only beat Gwins famous run by fractions of a second. His first race in 2018 Elites he's +15, Race 2 = +6 Race 3 = +10, Race 4 = +5, Race 5 = +4, Race 6 = +11, Race 7 = +8, Race 8 = +4. Pretty much exactly the same time margins compared to the winning Elite as the year before. Did he get faster? Probably, were conditions worse/better? yes ofc.

Well you've got two junior sensations going into Elites and both are setting the same margins or better. It shows that these guys are just getting faster, but it also shows that the conditions probably don't have more than 5 seconds difference in them, even AGs crazy rain run only had 6-10 seconds difference in it compared to Finns in far better conditions.

Well that was a way to kill an hour for me lol, but it shows that Jacko and Jordo are 10 seconds faster than Finn and Thibaut were in Juniors. Are these two just peaking a few years earlier? or are they going to Sam Hill/Nico everyone from now on?

 @Spooky221: It must be so frequent that I dont realise!!! Lucky the folk I train with in the gym dint even know I raced until someone else told them.

If you are much younger than me then I would hope you have beaten me lots of times (as you should, I am old and dont ride that much, do more building and maintenance than riding).
My only goal at a race just now is to not get spanked by the latest rippers in the 13/14 category, but haven't managed that this season, they are so fast!
  • 2 0
 @inside-plus: I was gonna try & do an analysis but you've done it well enough. I think the difference is that these guys (and everyone younger now) are not only entirely growing up with bikes - but fully submersed in bike (and team) culture which is immediate in online / social media - and are riding bikes that simply rule vs bikes / generations / culture from even 5-10+ yrs earlier - which, good as it was, was still developing. Jordan / Jax and even many of the younger elites (Finn, Ronan, etc) are in that group too - and its not just about blazing times but style & in freeride, going bigger & bigger - everything. Its more than just DH times tho times offer proof.

I have only mad respect & love for these younger rippers - its unreal to watch & its gonna foster even better riding everywhere & moving forward. I also have mad respect for the previous gen (mine & before) as this was the groundwork and there is still exponential development within this group too - I am no one and nothing but I am doing bigger ride days, 8hr park days, going faster & bigger & having more fun now than I ever did in my 20s/30s - feeling better & riding more now than ever, constantly wanting to progress like I was a kid.

Still - theres always just raw talent & power any time anywhere for any sport and both Jordan & Jackson have it, so whatever the reasons - its unreal to watch. Jacksons 6.5 second Hardline nuke of every other rider showed that clearly (and yeah, its just a race - its just bikes - but it showed the possibilities).

Point being: the young riders now are better at their age - I think - than older riders were even 5-10 yrs ago. Being fully immersed in mtb culture from birth onward, the teams, the trail access, the media, funding & sheer drive is just higher & prob will keep going higher.
  • 2 0
 @inside-plus: a forgotten and interesting point, when Deprela won in Les Gets 2021, Jackson's time was 6.5 seconds faster for the FTD. That race was clearly affected by rain, but he still put down a time 5 seconds faster the Bruni's qualifier.
  • 1 0
 @adamszymkowicz: I’ve raced dh in a lot of places, and I’ve never seen settled dust create more grip. At places like Andorra and Val di Sole this year, it was hot all summer, making those tracks bone dry and basically moon dust morning or night. Think Northstar or Snow Summit., if you’re familiar with the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Even if the overnight humidity somehow created more grip, it would be gone by the time the juniors race and wouldn’t account for several seconds difference between elite and juniors at some venues.

At the courses I mentioned above, the dirt is so dry that it can easily be eroded and it is likely that there is some deterioration during race day, but we’re only talking about 50 or so riders (jr men and women, elite women) before the 60 elite men drop. That said, the fact these juniors are able to put down those kind of fast times speaks more to their ability than the marginal level of degradation a race course goes through on race day.

 A quick look at Goldstone vs. 2 other recent dominant Juniors:

Finn Iles won 6 of 7 races in 2017 to take the Junior Overall.
Thibaut Daprela won 5 of 8 in 2019.
Jackson Goldstone won 5 of 8 in 2022.

Iles in 2017 and Goldstone in 2022 each won one race with a faster time than the Men's Elite winner of the same race.

Here are the average differences between the Juniors' winning times and the Men's Elite winning time for the races in 2017, 2019 and 2022 these three guys won:

Iles: 6.6 seconds behind Men's winner
Daprela: 9.5 seconds
Goldstone: 4.9 seconds

Pretty incredible performance by Jackson this year, in other words.
(I didn't bother looking to see what place his time would have gotten him in each race he won, but at MSA, for instance, his time would have been good enough to take 3rd in the Men's Elite. And yeah, I know, they race under different conditions, etc. Just pointing out how consistently high his performance level was, that's all.)

 @PauRexs: Williams might not have the skills for this one, or the desire to take this kind of risk. These hits are massive compared to anything on the UCI tracks. Goldstone has a track record of doing big air type stuff. In my opinion, he’s a much more well rounded rider compared to Williams, who seems to focus only on traditional DH racing.

 Have to say, that even if Bernard hadn’t crashed, I’m not sure he’d have been able to get inside Jackson’s time, as that was phenomenal.
Will echo what others have said on the prospects of the young Canadian when he steps up to Elites next year. I think along with Jordan Williams, he’ll be contesting for podiums and probably the top step.

 Couple of things - really impressed by Rach on commentary. For her first go at it (I think) sure was really good at providing real insight into things, picking out details and interacting with Rob. So in a few years when she gets fed up of winning stuff hopefully she ends up in a booth at races.

Jackson Bloody Goldstone. Holy shit. What a rider. I saw him in a bar in Morzine a few weeks ago and I genuinely just thought he was some random kid. He is so young, he looks like the lads round here who hang around on street corners vaping but so, so incredible on a bike. Absolutely amazed.

My 16yo lad had a photo with Jackson at the end of the day, made his (and my) day. Seems a good lad. I’ll add an Insta link of the photo once I work out how to add such a thing to a comment, then maybe you can follow me, even if for a day.

 Hard for anyone to argue an 18yr old kid winning the hardest mtb track in the world with a 7 second gap. This kid possibly has generational talent along the likes of Shaun white and Nyjah Houston. It will be fun to see if it continues in the elite class. I think it will. I’m sure we’ll get tired of him winning at some point and yearn for the next up and comer to take over but I think it will be some time before that happens.

 That was Jackson’s worlds bike and the one he road today. He probably just gave it to Bernard since he was taking the whole pivot bus back to the Uk and could fit Jackson’s gear, while the Syndicate crew is based in France and as the only syndicate rider at hardline he probably traveled solo.

 Just going to say, although I like Hardline as an event, as a race it's not that interesting. The most televised spots are the big jumps which even the announcers admitted were spots they basically go the same speed, and while the tech bits are gnarly and they show more of them, there's like 5 guys that maybe would win. In a good world cup track there's at least 10 that could win, and a lot more good runs beyond that. This seems more like half the field are just happy to survive the track.
