 The real winner will be the one who can stay focussed and cut through the field with Chainsaw like power and adaptability.

 @charlielynes you're just gonna have to Dale with it
  • + 24
 I'm Warnering you guys, stop this!!
  • + 33
 For Peat sake, I just want to watch these guys go down the damned Hill.
  • + 18
 Aaron the side of caution, that's a slick track.
  • + 15
 If they Blenki, they might miss a fast lad.
  • + 20
 the new section looks tricky but I'm sure they will Figaret out.
  • + 15
 Ragot the brakes and you'll Claire it
  • + 16
 Let's hope no one ends up in a seagrave

 Ragot the brakes and you'll Claire it. Hilarious Scooby Doo shiz.

 Everyone just relax and have a "Beer"

 Rachel must've stopped for a picnic lunch
  • + 1
 I was confused why she wasnt top 5 as usual.
  • + 1
 Seems like her wrist isn't to bad off based on her first split. Looks like it may be another Manon Vs. Rach contest for the top box spot.
  • + 22
 It's timed practice , just in case you didn't notice
  • + 2
 still recovering from the last crash......I bet she is saving it for race day.
  • + 24
 @bigburd I did notice, which is why I believe the picnic lunch to be the most likely cause for her time. Have you seen the Highlands at this time of year?? Absolutely beautiful, which is why I don't understand why all these people are trying to get down the hill so fast. They just need to slow it down and take in the sights. ITS ABOUT THE JOURNEY PEOPLE!!! NOT THE DESTINATION!!!!!
  • + 2
 Note her split 1 time was the fastest...
  • + 2
 I see what you did there @jackalope
  • + 2
 Danny LOOK AT THE SPEED!
  • + 20
 where is steve smith?
  • + 16
 timed practice is only for the top 80
  • + 14
 did not know that haha thanks bud
  • + 8
 I see I'm not the only one scanning for his name. I can finally say "meh, it's just time training after all"
  • + 4
 will be looking for Mangus Manson too!
  • + 20
 Rooting for Brosnan
  • - 1
 Flat or crash for the Rat ?
  • + 2
 Rat is still coming off his injury still. In some interview for the BDS he says he still has a lot of pain in his foot, and he's probably not in peak physical condition
  • + 8
 Bro 8 minutes back , something happened
  • + 10
 timed practice, quite often they stop and practice some sections. for example, rachel is 28 mins back
  • + 3
 Timed practice, bro. They rarely go even 3/4 gas for these.

Once you get to qualifiers/seeding runs, then you'll see a little more of the big names near the top.

 Claudio had a higher top speed than Troy

 Claudio = mountain GOAT

 Relax Manon give someone else a chance
  • + 5
 Atherton last - she clearly had a chilled run judging by her time. Hoping for a close battle in the women's after ragot's run away at lourdes. And hoping that the three Brits don't get puntures this year again Wink

 rachel was the fastest at the first split
  • + 1
 She was beat by Rach and Tahnee in the BDS; should be a good race!
  • + 6
 Rudy Cabirou and Marine Cabirou are brother and sister?
  • + 3
 Yes they are, they're in the same team as well!
  • + 2
 Came to the comments for the Cabirou post. Shredding! They BOTH had top ten finishes last round!

 @pastaman23 Thanks dude! They have done great jobs in Lourdes. Looking forward to their performance in Ft. Bill!

 one good thing about WC's scheduled so far away from each other is that guys like stevie smith and Minaar have a chance to heal up and get back in the mix for the next race.
  • + 1
 Yea, something i pointed out in the article about how many rounds there should be. A couple more rounds, but leave some big gaps for recovery.
  • + 4
 With Claudio's footage I would expect Manon to place in top five. Way to go!
  • + 3
 i wander how come it only shows top ten juniours? i want to see how my mate is doing!
  • + 5
 Apparently not that well lol
Seriously though, good luck to him, whoever he may be.
