 Can someone refresh my memory as to why Jill doesn't race WC? She just made Tracey and Manon look slow.
  • 10 1
 Or why she doesn't race enduro...

 Semi-privateer status would be my guess - on the upside she and Bryn get to pick what events they want to compete in.

 I wish she still did! Such sweet style

 Norco won't give her the funding to race WC

 @wyatt642: is that true? Source? Sad if true
  • 3 3
 @wyatt642: not true

 @wyatt642: when LTP have her jersey hanging in their TO office and idolize her, I'm pretty sure she is more than a second rate sponsorship.

 She did an interview on some guy's podcast ( think it's called the New Standard Podcast), and yeah it pretty much sounded like Norco cut their funding when the Norco Factory team was created.

 Waiting for a solid reply. I've been wandering about this for a bit.

 @pistol2ne: going by memory, I think she did race a season or two on the WC and her results were good but she wasn't blowing the field away. She claims 5 WC DH podiums (no wins) on her resume. She's accomplished so much else on the bike (bmx and 4x) that maybe she didn't feel the need to keep pushing with DH?

 @pistol2ne: ok. Because I'm a crazy person (and bored) I read her old blog entries. She raced 2011 WC DH. Her qualies and results were generally in the 6-11 range including a few big crashes, and finished the year 9th overall. She didn't have a teammate as Bryn wrecked himself early that season so that probably didn't help her mindset. I'm not crazy enough to see what happened in 2012. Someone else can do that Wink

 It would be cool to see Jill Kintner race Rachel Atherton in the WC. I know Rachel is at Crankworx right now, it would've been cool to see her race the DH races

 @paul-bee: for sure.

Jill, if you read this... there's always a way. If there's some scenario holding you back and it's not a personal choice not to compete again, keep trying. I know you're a big deal in the northwest circuits, but the womens world cup needs competition like you, and the young ladies coming up need more heroes to look up to. Assembling a team could give you the resources to propel to another level, you might not podium your first year but look how long Danny Hart took to get his. You got it in you and we all saw it today.

 In her interview in Freehub Mag, she said she was retiring from WC's to focus on Queen of Crankworx because she was looking for a new challenge

 Also I would wager that Kintner has ridden more A-Line laps than the rest of the top three combined.

 Did nobody tell Phil Atwell that skin suits are banned by UCI
  • 19 0
 Crankworx has nothing to do with the UCI, you can go full ballsack and no one will even notice.

 Air DH. I love that they have it because it flips A Line into something completely different and changes the difficulty of it to a nutty rocket ship race. Can't imagine how exhausted they must be after soaking up all for thoseroff jumps.

 Is its just a hot lap of A-Line?
  • 1 0
 One of my first ever DH races was Air DH. I was pretty fit at the time but I'd never done a full race run of A-Line before. Thought it would be pretty easy. I was absolutely wrecked when I got to the bottom. I also did it on my big bike which did not help!

 @ajayflex: "just a hot lap"...whaaaa? Every lap of A-Line is a hot lap. Wink

 @bizutch: haha indeed, I meant in terms of the route Smile I didn't realise it was on A-Line
