Speed and Style Qualifications

No style today boys... Qualy's were timed runs only and no fun allowed... Clearly. Tomorrow will decide the true winner who pins it the fastest and tricks the hardest.

  Whoops... and there goes the timing system

  Either go big with bar humps or stay low...

The Claw decided the air bag ramp was too small.. typical Claw style fix to the situation. Build a bigger one.

 this is mitch ropelato's words: "Gwin used to hate on 29ers but now after I beat him, he is trying to get his hands on as many 29er parts as he can." I would not doubt that he would race it on a niner, but who knows. graves has won it 2 years in a row (if not more) on his 4 cross bike and specialized just came out with their new one. we will see

 Yeh, i don't know if its just me but i when i see a Trek World Racing Jersey i think "is that gwin" because he was apart of that brand. Now i look at a specialised rider and think is that Hill... but then realise its gwin.
