 Mr philip atwill lets go!

 Phil Atwill strikes me as the kind of guy who would be right at home drinking vodka at a weird Polish rave, so he's been my pick for this race from the start.

 Help me out ya'll. Every time I see the title "Timed Training Results" I get triggered. Because I don't think they are "results" in the way we usually use that word associated with racing. I think the title should be "Training Times". Yet, the word isn't wrong, and being triggered by anything is lame. Set me straight! Just had to get that off my chest; been thinking about it for years. Downvote as you see fit.

 I'll upvote you, maybe "Timed Training Data" would be better.

 People always want to win practice.

 Its just stuff to talk about, not much more. Pros are mostly focusing on segments they want to rail & not the others they're confident with. It basically has no meaning except to punk out your FL picks.

 Impressive win by Troy. So good he got on the top step after Fort Bill.

 Timed training deserves an award ceremony.

 Rémi Thirion 2nd => wet condition Smile

 my sources are saying it is muddy AF on the track...muddy AF!

 It was super dry, and tomorrow is supposed to be sunny. I think tomorrow at least should be perfection. Sunday... 11AM predicted thunderstorms... I hope y'all have Reece in your fantasy team.

 @pisgahgnar: yeah it's gonna be crazy. Qualifying perfect. Race runs muddy AF. Very hard to predict. One of those races that depending on when you go and what's happening on the mountain anyone can win. Gonna be a week where a lot of those "mid pack" people have really good results.

 What happened with Jnr Women? Bad weather?
  • 29 3
 They rode up the course

 @bgoldstone: E-DH up the track? Smile Smile Smile

 Looking at the live timing site it seems that also a) only a handful of elite women did a full timed run and b) a lot of their times were super slow also. Gracey (5th) was already a minute behind, Mikayla (10th) five minutes. I'd say either weirdly specific weather issues, or more likely, many riders are still getting comfortable with the new track and stopping a lot during their runs.

 To continue, based on some Instagram clips the rain in the afternoon made some parts of the track really muddy at least for a while. Not sure how the worst of it coincided with the timed runs, but probably didn't help those who were still getting in grips with the track in the first place.

 Can't wait to hear people try to talk about the effects of remote lock outs in the mud

 No results for Neko or Asa, did they not get bikes in time? No times posted for Vali or Sian A'herne?
  • 3 0
 Saw some clips with Asa riding the track, and Neko's insta says they got replacement gear in time for the race.
  • 2 0
 no Angel either. guessing the team opted out of the timed runs.
  • 2 0
 They got bikes. The sponsors all stepped in and helped them get replacements parts and Neko went home and got some frames hammered out in time. They'll be good to go. With the conditions the way they are Neko should have a good week and Asa is a pick to win every race for the next 2 years. Kids the real deal.

 @Wyn Masters , looks like Fabian Barel's input on the track walk to his riders was effective. Very 'dynamic' results!

 Fabien Barel is a sorcerer. He knows how magic works. Daprela must be biting his balls right now.

 Anyone know what happened to Laurie? Here, and in fort bill, I couldnt find any info about why he didn't make it into finals there
  • 1 0
 Think at fort bill he said he had mechanicals in both quails and semis, not sure about here though

 whoa Troy!

 Troy boy can jump?

 Was Cami OK after her crash, do we know?

 Where are all the elite women gone from the entry list?
  • 1 0
 Only 4 Polish guys in the race. That's got to be an all time local race low.
  • 3 0
 Yeah I skimmed through and was pretty surprised there weren't a few more. Maybe having a home course like this we'll see those numbers rise in the next few years.

 Concerned about the junior girls times...can they handle these jumps?
  • 4 0
 It was absolutely pouring with rain, and a whole lot of stopping and starting. The junior girls will be fine.

 If there's no time, are they still racing? Camille Balance? Connor Fearon?
  • 2 0
 Lot of people not doing timed training. Some people go out and do practice and then work on bike set up. Especially when the course is completely different from the way it's going to be when they're actually racing. Beyond that... Camille and Connor are both beasts when the conditions are techy so I"m sure they're good to go.

 Is it wet?
  • 2 0
 It definitely is. Our part of Europe is having strong rains and thunderstorms right now..

 @nerdymtbiker: This race could be another lottery.
  • 4 0
 @BenPea: not as wet. Not sure about the dh track but I was on the EDR track today and it was wet but grippy. Only loose over specific hardpacked places.
