The skethy shark fin is a disappointment to watch with 99 of riders... not the case with Dakota Norton however.

The UCI has today published the full list of athletes that will be heading to the World Championships in Leogang, Austria this week. Despite COVID hanging over the event, riders from around the world will still congregate in Zell am See to fight it out for the Rainbows. The full list of riders is below:

Full 2020 Leogang World Championship Teams

 Scribd is hard work, just give us the Downhill riders and be done with it Smile
  • 11 2
 Yeah scribd sucks a fat one. I dont understand why anyone would use it.
  • 22 20
 It works perfectly fine if you have half a brain.
  • 60 1
 @mollow: you see that's the problem. I have a complete brain. tup

 @Afterschoolsports: They talked about it in a podcast...
  • 2 1
 @PAmtbiker: Levy literally can’t even pronounce it...”scribbed” for your pleasure...never mind explaining how the hell anyone is sposed to use it!

You’re right though. It sounds like it’s the UCI’s fault for publishing crappy pdfs.
  • 3 0
 @mollow: It's poor in terms of usability and accessibility. I mean, a PDF embedded in an IFrame ffs it's arcane.
Do the UCI believe this is a more secure or official format for publishing information? It's officially shit.
  • 1 0
 @Steventux: I am very pleased to see the correct descriptive words being used here. In fact, take the rest of the day off. Your simple summation could have saved the company millions if we'd just realised sooner. It's true, Scribd is shit. #usecrayon

 No Gee again? Legitimate question, why does he miss selection on Team GB?
  • 19 1
 he's probably gonna win hardline again right after
  • 16 0
 Agreed, it seems completely crazy that a two-time world champ doesn’t get selected

 Same reason why Earl Thomas doesn't have a job... People don't want him on the team.

 Two time World Champion with a higher 2019 and 2020 UCI ranking than some of the guys that did make the team. Would love to know selection criteria.

 @Superburner: I also don't understand the hate towards Gee. Pretty likable, dedicated and skilled guy IMO.

 He's doing the IXS DH at Crankworx this weekend though, no?!? Same with Kaos?
  • 27 4
 It's still weird not seeing Steve's name on a list. I miss him everyday
  • 5 6
 Were you related or friends?
  • 4 0
 @jimmythehat: I lived in Nanaimo right when he was moving from a jr to elite. He was fearless and no one attacked like he did . I would wake up at 2am to watch his races live

 I still can't get my head around the fact that Brook Macdonald is back in the game. After seeing his rehab this time last year, I thought he'd be lucky to race anything again!

 Came here just to say that! Brook! That's incredible Big Grin

 There was snow down in Lenzerheide village last weekend and there have even been a couple of lifts opening for skiing here in Switzerland. I assume that the snow will melt pretty soon though

 I’d (almost) forgotten how much I dislike scribd...

 No canadian women. Disappointing.
  • 2 0
 Ya no kidding. Wonder what was the reason? No Forrest Riesco in the mens side either.
  • 2 0
 @lastminutetech: To be on the Canadian roster you already had to be in Europe for racing, they werent putting anyone on the team who still had to deal with travel to Europe.

 I thought Miranda Miller was going to race the DH track at Leogang?

 @MCsession7: Ahhh gotcha, thx for the heads up!
  • 6 2
 Time to break out the ski bikes!
Here’s a look at the “race track” at this time! If COVID doesn’t get the event cancelled then the snow will... Don’t get your hopes up too much people
  • 2 0
 Tire selection will be key this year.
  • 2 0
 A dusting of snow and a 9 degree C current temperature does not suggest the snow will stay long.
  • 5 2
 @paulskibum: at the top it is well below 9 degrees. Since champs will be in a few weeks I don’t think the weather will play nice

 @isuckatridingbutmybikeiscool: Its actually next week already

 He was injured and is currently recovering

 check his Instagram. He's still having physio

 A French lockout in the mens DH is a real possibility. Would love to see something like that happen. Either way it's gonna be a hell of a weekends racing. A lot of do or die runs, more than normal I reckon.
  • 1 0
 Hopefully the event will happen! There are some new sketchy and big features on the new wood-section after the wall-rides (one jump looks more like a hardline-gap)...

Also I want to See Vali in the Womens Pro-Race (fingers-crossed)!

 I'm actually pumped to see Rachel Atherton back up against the big players again. When we saw Tracey Hannah dominate Crankworx earlier in the year none of the big dogs were there.

 Please clarify. Is that “moi” as in “me” or “moi” as in Jack Moir. Unlike the rest of us I think your opinion actually matters!

 You do realize the only countries on lockdown are Canada, USA, Australia, and New Zealand. Every other country has followed the science and came to the conclusion it's a bad case if influenza

 @G3V162F: go to bed.

 People coming from America would have to quarantine in a lot of Europe or aren't even allowed in at all. I guess expat Americans could still join (eg Newkirk in the Women's DH lives in Switzerland)
