Finals Photo Epic: No White Christmas - Leogang DH World Champs 2020

Photo Epic presented by Five Ten

Like kids on Christmas, the elite athletes, called to duty by their countries, drew back the curtains on this hallowed World Champs morning wondering what kind of scene that might greet them. Of course, when they saw only pitch darkness, they remembered that the race is at least a month later than it should be and the planet has begun to tilt well out of favor with the Northern Hemisphere. But peering through the gloom, they could tell the much-hyped and feared forecast had, in fact, not materialised and covered the ground in yuletide joy. It would not be a powder day after all. Vali Höll and Loris Vergier were probably very disappointed they didn't have an automatic gold following their qualifying wins, and sharing the disappointment was anybody who didn't like wet feet or those not packing a spare peak or two in the kit bag.

It's seems fair to declare this race about as close to pure carnage as they come. The woods were mashed up beyond all recognition from the perfectly crafted, fresh-cut state we found it in for trackwalk. Heck, even the infamously hard-pack motorway was developing supercross ruts, even before another round of significant rain. As if it wasn't tough enough out there, women and juniors took to the track this morning in incredibly dark conditions. The biggest crash of the weekend came quickly, and unfortunately it happened to the favorite for women's gold, Vali Höll, taking her out of the running. The only female to attempt the canyon gap for that session with its deteriorating run-in, she came up short by about a meter with explosive results; a huge OTB, ripped ligaments and a fractured ankle.

To defend the coveted stripes, Myriam Nicole's main aim was to stay on her bike. It would be a simple enough plan at most races... too simple probably, but not here. Not this time. Her plan failed and like so many she couldn't tame the woods. Silver would have to do. Tahnee Seagrave's big comeback was so nearly fairytale, first at all the splits, only to also fall foul in the depths of the forest and its vile ruts. Usual suspects, Tracey Hannah and Marine Cabirou, also missed the mark on clean runs, and instead Monika Hrastnik stepped up for a bronze medal. Gold then went quite unexpectedly to Switzerland. Camille Balanche rode the cleanest and now wears the rainbows for the remaining World Cups and the 2021 season to come.

Sharing gold medals with Balanche was Scotland's Reece Wilson in the elite men. Tipped for the top by those who witnessed his finesse in the steep woods or the earlier stump-littered war-zone, Wilson still seemed like a wild-card option, but in this topsy-turvy, barn-burner of race anything did suddenly seem possible. Not to say that anything other than unadulterated bicycle brilliance could win this race. Following on from his Crankworx Innsbruck win, Austria's own David Trummer did his countryfolk proud and rampaged to silver while DH 'steep and messy' specialist, Frenchman Remy Thirion, answered the call and romped into the bronze medal position. Chances are we'll be talking about Worlds 2020 for a while. It was a lot to take in.



It turns out Christmas was lurking just 100m or so above the mid-station.

Despite missing the snow, heavy rain in the night and during morning practice left the track all but obliterated in many sections.

The pull for the triple out of the stumps is not for the faint of heart considering how little grip exists.

An easy enough 'canyon gap' for your average World Cup racer, but in these conditions the right set-up in the terrible ruts became key.

 "An all-GB podium of O'Callaghan, Slack and Elliot in the very 'British' conditions."

NOPE! It was not an all GB podium. The winner was Irish and he's from Ireland which is not in Great Britain.
Well done Oisin on a phenomenal race!

 @mfoga: I think @AlanMck and @iainmac - 1 are probably using the term 'Brit' disengeniously (and politically), but it's an arguement you wouldn't want to get into. I'd prefer it if identity politics were kept out of mountain biking (and that's coming from a proud Scot!). On a different note, it's sad that Oisin O'Callaghan wasn't intially recognised as Irish (in the same way Brian Carney, the rugby player initially wasn't), but they'll all know where he's from now.

 Technically Ireland is part of the land mass known as Great Britain. However only Northern Ireland is part of the sovereignty known as the United Kingdom. Although this appears irrelevant in most sports.

 @steve4130: what you’re describing is the British isles. The whole topic is fairly confusing though
  • 3 0
 @steve4130: 'The United Kingdom' is actually an abbreviation of 'The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland'. GB is England, Scotland and Wales, whereas the UK is those three plus Northern Ireland.

As chrispaulmtb says the overarching term used by some is The British Isles, although I'd suspect that's not so popular in Cork or Derry!
  • 4 0
 @Niseach1: any Irish person using the term "Brit" is referring to people from England and it's disengenuous. I think Irish-English relations are still considered raw, so when someone from Limerick is called British, or when Bradley Wiggins calls Sam Bennett British, it is perceived differently. As for Northern Ireland, let's not even start. But I'm from there and am not British.

 @AlanMck: Completely agree - I get pissed off myself as a Scot when people talk Britain and are referring to England. I was also referring to the term 'Brits' being used by Scots disengenously (taken from the Irish use) to their fellow Scots who do not wish for Independence. Living in England, I'm glad not to be involved in that debate...

 Such a great ride by Wilson - and when you look at the splits, this was nothing to do with just getting the bottom section right. He was on the money at split 1, a couple of seconds back at split 2, which he’d reeled back in by split 3, and back on top by split 4. The fastest man won on the day, and you don’t always get to say that at Worlds...

 Odd thing to say, whenever did a slower man win worlds?

 @ColquhounerHooner: Plenty of times. It’s such an all or nothing run, that often riders who have shown themselves to have really got the pace and the measure of the track over the preceding days have choked. More so than in a World Cup where points are always on offer. It’s on a occasion thrown up some really unexpected winners in the past. I just felt that based on some of the practice footage, Wilson looked really on it. But I take your point. Literally speaking, the fastest person in the race is the one who finishes in the fastest time. And is therefore the winner. I probably should have thrown some quotation marks in my first post.

 What an epic race that was! Perhaps not the race everyone wanted, but surely one to remember.
As a (casual) rider and spectator, most of MTB's appeal to me is that it's an outdoor sport. This is what nature gave the riders yesterday.
When most of the mainstream sports try to make sure that uncertainty is reduced to a minimum (like soccer, where the richest teams are supposed win), these WC gave two unexpected and well-deserving winners. That's the other fascinating part of that sport: everything is always on the edge, the tiniest mistake can crush your dreams and crown somebody else
It also felt like such a priviledge and some kind of relief to be able to watch that battle of a race. A difficult one for a difficult year, and somehow the riders made it down the mountain.
  • 10 1
 Reece Wilson's celebration was a joy to watch. Thirion's run was also a joy to watch--fast and ragged AF. Glad only one body was shattered by the gap--seemed almost too risky in those conditions. Not sure at what point you just make everyone take the ride-around.

If Maxxis came out with something similar, it might be a lot easier to get ahold of here stateside.
