 29" wheels to end up on a bike somewhere! Mechanics to use tools! Guy who gets down in least amount of time to win! Fastest elite men's time to be faster than any junior women's times! Tyre choices to be made! Skids to be done! Gwin to be American! Spectators to be noisy! Herbalife to be a scam! Coil sprung suspension to be heavier than air! Air sprung suspension to be heavier than no suspension! Waki to make comments that get upvoted 3000 times! Waki to make comments that get downvoted 3000 times! Head angles to be slacker than before!

 Danny didn't know timed training only matters on Strava?
  • + 8
 Warner to hold his true language back, Claudio to make awkward second language gaff.

 @Socket: nailed it. Gwin....to be American was my favorite. The natural pause due to line spacing got me.

 OMGZZZ!!! What happened to Gwin!!!!!!

Just kidding. Everyone knows it's practice. Right? Everyone knows this. Right?

 @cheeverbrent: Thanks for posting that! I think about it every timed training.
  • + 7
 Is it just me or is Danny Hart usually one of the few actually NOT sandbagging in training? He seems consistently in the top 3 in training.
  • + 8
 I wouldn't call it "sandbagging." It's practice. Some folks like to session sections, scope things out, do their own version of...............PRACTICE.
  • + 3
 @Lotusoperandi: Sure, but Hart is one of the few who usually ends up in the top 3 of practice.
  • + 4
 @Lotusoperandi: PRACTICE! I aint talkin bout Practice meng! It's PRACTICE!!
  • + 3
 @PHeller: That's fine. That's how he chooses to use his time. Gwin ROUTINELY ends up at the bottom during practice and then what happens on qualies? What happens on race day? Again, they all have their own strategy. Just because Hart uses his practice time to pin it doesn't mean anything in the end really.

 I remember Dave Garland (Danny's mechanic back on Giant) saying Danny is just a few seconds off race pace on his second run of the week. Whereas a guy like Gwin spends pretty much all of practice looking at other riders and has done 6-7 runs at most by the time he drops in for his race run. Both still end up on the box though

 @fabdemaere: sounds like Danny should race enduro then
  • + 3
 I've never seen Greg Minnaar up there in timed training ... and he has 20 world cup wins ... timed training says nothing
  • + 1
 @bohns1: yep like Aaron Iverson
  • + 7
 Finn is good enough for 13th in Pro Men with his TT result. Sick.
  • + 6
 Using these for fantasy lineup, has to be accurate!

 If Myriam Nicole could win this race then this season would be perfect enough.
  • + 4
 Glad to see Rachel Atherton back in the game. Hope she's healed up well.
  • + 3
 She's held up well by her new Gorilla glue sponser.
  • + 2
 @Boardlife69: Do they have Gorilla brand in the EU?
  • + 4
