 that first feature would never be allowed on a UCI WC track. lol. it's just trying to hurt people. that said, I dig it! More technical gnar, less motorway jumps please!

 "Fans" were out for blood to. Nothing funnier then seeing somebody smash his or her head into a tree I suppose...

 @Exbow: The log was obviously placed there intentionally to differentiate riders on a very short track. There was a go-round on that feature, too. No one had a gun to their head.

 Strong late 90s/early 2000s East Coast US vibes on that first feature: Part jump, part drop, no flow, full jank.

 Ha! The French have finally shown their cards! They are so good because they use the track to kill off the weaker ones.

 Have a look at how Amaury or Finn hits it: smooth like butter, you don't even notice the feature. All these you saw crashing today will be probably doing it a lot more like the wc pros in a year or two, and that's´s why you got so many French winning races- is called progression.

 The amateurs at the beginning are called “groupe suicide” : suicide squad!

 Some of those tumbles were f*cking nasty. But notice how everyone who hit it fast, scrubbed it into the dip and through the corner made it work, and everyone who braked hard f*cking stuffed it straight into the ground, and the murder log. Gotta hit it like you mean it, going into survival mode MAKES you crash so much more often. Faster would have been safer and easier, commitment to the line will get you places.

 @pinkbike crew, take notice of the first 3 mins of this clip. This is what people have been asking for as reaction to Friday/Saturday/Sunday fail/send/save. All mixed up and every new rider is a surprise.

 it is to take them out, obviously

 Definitely depended on the rider skill level. Watching Bernard Kerr's POV videos, he made that feature look like nothing.

 Makes it more difficult. You have to go fast enough to clear the log, which means you enter the next section pretty quick, and I think it's steeper than it looks. Without the log I think you wouldn't see so many crashes, it does make it more dangerous

 Why did Amaury miss the start of qualifying?

 He was sick and he dont gonna race Frown

 It is his local track, an unfair advantage or at least he would put 5 seconds on anyone else?
Plus he will have done loads of timed runs!

 La prochaine fois que tu viens à Morzine ou à Chamonix pour nous pomper l'air, profites-en pour apprendre quelques rudiments...

 @zoobab2: leurs vacances partent en fumée vu la flambée des prix du gaz/pétrole. Avec les Russes qui vont disparaitre, il y a des stations qui vont en chier...

 Pourquoi pas apprendre quelques bases de la langue francaise? Ce n'est pas dificile. Si je peux le fair, toi aussi Smile
