5 Things We Have Learned in Mont-Sainte-Anne

Mont-Sainte-Anne, Canada, hosted the penultimate stop of the 2017 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup presented by Shimano on two of the most challenging tracks of the season! With only two more rounds to go, the race for the overall title and, in Nino Schurter’s case, the perfect season was truly on. As if the tight overall standings and extremely difficult and fast track weren’t enough to guarantee an exciting race for the Downhill riders, the weather decided to play a major role once again with a downpour of biblical dimensions ravaging the track just as the top riders were about to drop in. The resulting race was one for the history books. Here are the five things we learned at the UCI DHI and XCO Mountain Bike World Cup in Mont-Sainte-Anne:

1. Legendary Location in Quebec

Since 1991, the inaugural season of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup, the best riders in the world have made the pilgrimage to the magnificent Eastern-Canadian mecca of mountain biking on the banks of the St. Lawrence River to battle each other and the mountain’s long, fast, hard, and tricky tracks. The 2017 edition delivered another instant classic with Saturday’s downhill held under brutal weather conditions that had fans witnessing one of the best wet race runs in the sport’s history. Conditions favorably changed for Sunday’s cross-country race and the enthusiastic cycling-savvy crowd.

2. Seagrave Smashes Mont-Sainte-Anne Course

Tahnée Seagrave (GBR) absolutely smashed the course in Mont-Sainte-Anne taking her second win of the 2017 season and besting current World Cup leader and French National Champion Myriam Nicole by nearly six seconds. Tracey Hannah (AUS) delivered a gutsy ride to finish third with a rear flat tire while World Champion Rachel Atherton had a wild ride down the mountain including the save of the season after a high-speed two-wheel drift across a rock garden to finish fifth. With Nicole now only 110 points ahead of Hannah and 146 points ahead of Seagrave in the overall standings, it all comes down to Val di Sole.


3. Unbelievable Performances and an All-Time Wet Run

It had been raining throughout the duration of the day but just as the Top 30 started to drop in, the heavens really opened and drenched Mont-Sainte-Anne with biblical downpours, turning sections of the track into rivers. As the best qualifiers dropped in, it long seemed like a repeat of the first round of 2017 in Lourdes, where a storm ruined the chances for the top riders. Jack Moir (AUS) however chose to ignore the lack of vision and deep puddles and put down an incredible run that saw him only two seconds behind teammate Dean Lucas (AUS), who had come down before the massive downpour and occupied the hot-seat for most of the race. News of Moir’s performance quickly made its way to the top. Knowing that there was a chance, riders risked it all and fans got treated to incredible runs by Troy Brosnan (AUS), Loic Bruni (FRA) and Danny Hart (GBR), all of whom came within a few seconds of Lucas' not-so-wet time.

With only one rider left at the top, Lucas already looked like the winner. Aaron Gwin however had other ideas. The American pushed out of the gate and put on a legendary show for the ages in the brutally wet and muddy conditions. Riding on another level, taking risks and inside-lines not seen all day, he crossed the line with a thunderous roar from the fans and one second ahead of Lucas.

Meanwhile the leader in the overall standings, Greg Minnaar (RSA), had a nightmare of a day that ended with disqualification after a crash. As a result, Gwin now only trails Minnaar by 31 points, while Brosnan's 6th place moved him within 77 points of the lead, setting up for an epic battle for the overall World Cup title at the season’s final stop in Val di Sole, Italy.

4. Belomoina Dominates

World Cup overall leader, Yana Belomoina (UKR) used her exceptional climbing and technical skills to dominate the star-studded women’s field to take her third win of the season over French Champion Pauline Ferrand Prevot and the Canadian home-country duo of Catherine Pendrel and Emily Batty by 44 seconds. With today’s victory, Belomoina clinches the overall 2017 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup XCO title with one race to go, a first for herself and the Ukraine to cap her amazing season.

5. Schurter Remains Unstoppable

Nino Schurter’s (SUI) quest for a perfect season stays on track with a record-setting fifth consequitive victory this season. The Swiss strongman topped the box on the challenging track in Mont-Sainte-Anne ahead of Stephane Tempier (FRA) and Gerhard Kerschbaumer (ITA) for the 25th World Cup win of his career, securing the overall 2017 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup XCO title along the way.

 With Gwin and Semenuk being two of my favourite riders, my non-mtb initiated french friends laugh a bit when they hear of them.

 @zede: the late nineties. Now there was an era.

 It made no sense at all, every other rider saw red....... But Gwins run was Sublime.
  • + 31
 Aaron isn't the GOAT yet, err Nico's the GOAT, no Rachel's the GOAT, no Greg is the GOAT so who is the goat herder cos we got a bunch of goats over here? They're all great, you pick your greatest but don't expect everyone to agree.
  • + 6
 Greg is the GOAT. I thought everyone agreed on that?
  • + 66
 Chainsaw is my shepherd.
  • + 19
 Gwin is definitively the first rider that really dominates since Vouilloz. Like Vouilloz, no one else can do what Gwin does on a bike. What he did at MSA reminds me of Nico's run at the 97 worlds in Chateau d'Oex. Gwin is only missing two or three rainbow jersey to be the goat.
  • + 8
 as time pases and the quantity of quality riders increases, the definition of a GOAT will be harder, amazing performances will be diluted among a much biggeer amount of other amazing performances.
  • + 6
 @Powderface: He might be powder face, if he is to you then I am happy. But let me pull on your coat a minute. The definition of GOAT'ness surely requires you to retire and still remain the greatest. For all time may be hard to measure granted. I have the utmost respect for Greg Minaar but Aaron will likely surpass his records in short order after Greg's retirement, does that make him GOAT? To say someone is the current holder of the GOAT title is an oxymoron, hence they are all great take your pick. My pick for the is GOAT Ricky Carmichael.
  • + 7
 @Powderface: I would say based on statistics Greg is the 'GOAT', but more due to his longevity and consistency as being one of the best over that time. Based on recent statistics combined with Danny Hart or Sam Hill style sheer impossible wow factor, Gwin gets the award.
  • + 0
 It has a Russian twang to it but for now Gwin is a GWOAT
  • + 5
 In Nico's era, he was the fittest technical rider. In his era, there were riders you KNEW were better in certain conditions, more powerful, weaker, etc and any given track. Nico had the most rounded skillset of his era, but would admit he could be beaten by riders with other skillsets. Peaty was his closest rival and was possibly a more well rounded rider overall, but not as consistent. Insanely close though. Kovarik sweeped through most everything at one point, but may have had weaknesses that I can't remember because he won on every type of course I can think of at the time. Hill was a master of everything except time trial sprint stuff. Gwin has come along at a point where the top tier are all incredible at every kind of course. They're all elite level fitness riders with no holes in their games in mud, mulch, gravel or freaking concrete. All the riders are so well rounded now that what he and GM are doing is insane. BUT...I just watched Les Gets on YouTube to refresh my memory. Palmer was only losing to Nico by .06 at that point even back then. So, there was an insanely tight margin of victory even back then.

 @NickB01: 'one of the best over that time' I like that, fack all these absolutes they mean nothing

 @Euskafreez: I think the all time greats in terms of dominance would be Vouilloz, Hill and Gwin. Minnaar mostly based on longetivity, just like Peaty. Hart deserves a mention based on raw skill. Pretty difficult to narrow it down any further - Vouilloz was simply brilliant but you could argue the level of competition wasn't as high as it is now, Hill was brilliant too and changed the way we ride bikes but it was only a couple of years he dominated (06, 07 and 09), same goes for Gwin (2011, 12 and 16) but he might take this one too and still has lots of years left. Definitely not as simple as MX with RC winning the outdoors 7 times and SX 5 times..

 @bonkywonky: Gee also?

 now that we are mentioning a lot of potential GOATS, i think the Rat had a great probability. I respect his decision not to keep running WC. but i think he had almost everything to be the best of all time.

 @BenPea: He's the Bubba Stewart of DH. We'll never know because he's had so many BRUTAL injuries over his career. World Cup Overalls, 2 Worlds wins...but man, if he doesn't set off a metal detector, who does?

 @bizutch: if you have so much metal in you, do they check you for butt probes every time you come to Australia by plane?

 @johnnygrosso: funny thing is about carmichael is that hes fat and slow now, and mcgrath is still a monster and if they were to race TODAY, there would be no competition.

 @englertracing: Jeff Emig once said RC only had to drive past the golden arches to gain a couple pounds. Ive seen him now on you tube and it looks like his driven thru the arches quite a bit lately but his records still stand!

 Aaron's run was epic, but I'm struggling to understand people saying it's better than Danny's run in champery. Even the riders at MSA were saying that the grip was actually pretty good, and he *only* won by 2 seconds...Danny completely tore them apart on what a tonne of riders have called the steepest course in the world, by a way bigger margain, in equal or rose conditions, Aaron *looked* like he was riding within himself, no sketchy moments, whereas Danny was on the edge, loose AF. Gwin is a hero, but ultimately only beat a bunch of other guys in the same conditions by a couple of seconds.
  • + 1
 Equal or WORSE*
  • + 13
 That's the trick To ride so fast and be in control It's not as wild and crazy to watch but it's fast Loose ain't always . Looks good on tv , but its usually a sign of riding over your head .
  • + 2
 I think dannys run was better too, and on pretty sure most people agree. In the modern this goes down as one of the best runs for sure, but not the top. Dirt covers some of the contenders
  • + 4
 Agreed. Hart at Champery! Everyone else folded.
  • - 2
 Danny's competitors wrecked out of the race if I call correctly.
Only one of Gwin's competitors did.

Danny's run was great because it was the only clean, fast run and it was entertaining with the unedited commentary from two British commentators f-bombing it drunk as heck for a compatriot.

If you flipped the two runs in time, you'd view them differently. Neither is that much more stunning than the other. Hart's run benefited from the extra flair for sure and was a really insane run.

But again, Hill coming down Champerey in a downpour, WRECKING and riding the original, haggard course (make NO mistakes that a LOT of work was done to Champerey prior to Hart's win). Then ADD to it, he was the ONLY top 10 competitor to NOT ride in the dry (which all the best could barely handle at the time).

I've seen most every World Cup race run that's ever been televised in one way or another. It is NOT even close ever what anyone has done compared to his 3rd place run.
  • + 3
 @bizutch: The others wrecked because tue conditions were so atrocious. Persnally I think Dannys run was the superior run. Hill rode really well and was on another level - danny was as well, but didn't wreck it, pulled a huge whip and won. And it was world champs. Boss
  • + 1
 Pretty interesting that the runs considered legendary usually involve rain.. I'd come to the same conclusion though, either this, hill or hart in champery or perhaps kovarik in ft william in 2002.
  • + 1
 @russthedog: So are you actually saying Harts Worlds win was bigger than Hills 3rd place? Cant tell from your wording.

 @bizutch: My opinion is harts was bigger. But its just like my opinion, man.
11.6seconds!

 @russthedog: Have you watched the segment on Earthed?

 @bizutch: yes, i am also semi-old haha (34). And I am from western australia so was a Hill fan boy at the time too. I regularly watch Danny harts run even now and im still blown away by it

 Just watched the Gwin run again. Unreal.
  • + 11
 Gwins run was an absolute pleasure to watch! That was beast mode in the worst conditions on the gnarliest track with all the pressure on him.....I'm going to watch that a few more times now

 Too bad we'll never see all the other sketchy sickness he probably pulled outside of Rebull's limited (not complaining, mind you) view. We miss a lot. Soon I predict the top 20 will have Follow Me drones from GoPro. The tech is there.

 "that was crackers!"
  • + 3
 @indydave124:

Got seriously stoked with the high speed sliding around up top, then "oh no!" when he lost momentum in the rocks, then finally "oh hell nah!" with that inside line at the end hoping the side knobs on his new tires would hold that line in the wet. So f'n crazy! Love this sh*t!

 @endlessblockades: one long cable cam... If it's possible, it certainly is profitable : one installation would serve all runs, women and Junior included. Many cams needed though...
  • + 2
 @Uuno: to run a cable cam on even 75% of the course would require at least 10 more cable cams on a track like this. Simply put there is no way. That means 10 times the crew, ten times the expensive camera and cable rigs. Maybe there could be better cable cam coverage on a track like lenzerheide where a lot of it is out in the open under the lift.
  • + 9
 With all that hyperbole it cannot be overstated how absolutely incredible Rachel's save was. I'd wreckon it was the save of her career or maybe even history! If you've got a better one, post the link below!
  • + 21
 You're welcome to such hyperbole, but I've seen way more insane saves in race runs. The one that really comes to mind was Shaun Palmer hucking to flat in a Euro World Cup, snapping a crank...and hauling in for I "think" 6th place from that point on.

I've seen two feet blown off at 30 mph plus riding side saddle in a World Cup run, heck...ANY run by Shaums March was more loose and out of control than that.

It goes without saying that virtually any time Missy Giove was on a bike, here ENTIRE RUN looked like that one save...for 4 minutes straight.

You've got to get onto some VHS tape friend. This is rowdy stuff.
  • + 3
 Greatest save I've ever seen on a MTB! I swapped out like that before but I had to buy a new lid after and take a couple weeks off to get my head right.
  • + 4
 Did the same today, but didn't film it......
  • + 7
 @bizutch: no offense to Rachel but she doesn't even come close to what Palmer did back in the days. And what about Franck Roman and Missy Giove saves when they were racing for Volvo Cannondale? But we had no internet or youtube to share the videos back then Frown .
  • + 2
 In one of Earthed movies Ratboy flies completely sideways in a natural gutter in Maribor. But I don't think it's as spectacular as what Rachel did
  • - 1
 @Euskafreez: We live in the here and now so don't go ruining all this fun with things like facts and history.

Would you say its the best save you have seen by a lady?
  • + 8
 @Euskafreez: Missy's "comeback" run on a borrowed Intense a few years ago was extra rowdy. She was rusty as hell, on an unfamiliar bike, and simply went for it. It was great.
  • + 4
 @bizutch: There's a difference between an out of control moment and a miraculous save and someone who knows how to ride on the limit. Danny Hart comes to mind in recent history. He looks absolutely wild and is incredible to watch. You're left thinking, "how did he stay on the bike?!" after some of his runs, buts that's how he rides, it might look out of control but in most cases that's not the case. Anyway, I'm not here to argue the merits of what makes something a save or not. I have no doubt that there have been some awesome saves in the past and I want to see them!
  • + 5
 @indydave124: no, Missy Giove has done so much better.
  • + 1
 @THE-EDJ: Hart was smooth as when he won MSA last year, bike and rider looked planted

 @Euskafreez: The Missile was a wild one, on and off the track!

 This comes to my mind when hearing about a save: www.instagram.com/p/_9JeChmasS

 The lesson she reminds us of is: never let go of the grips when you're going down - it protects your hands and arms and you just might ride it out. Let go and you're done.
  • + 2
 @endlessblockades: yes my bad, thanks. I went back to look for the video and remembered where she got the bike.
www.pinkbike.com/news/missy-giove-back-in-the-saddle.html
Can't find the video from her race run but it was pretty far out.
  • + 3
 @Euskafreez: If I had a good bit of change, I'd take all the VHS tapes I loyally taped most every single OLN broadcast of the World Cups. When you get to watch those, you do realize that ninjas have existed on every DH course across the World Cup.

Nico introduced intelligent line choice and momentum to the masses. Francois Gachet at one point rode roots like they were there. Corrado Herin rode a deathtrap of a bike like it had a motor.

Poor Brian Lopes, Missy Giove and Cedric Gracia risking life and limb on those god awful frankenbike Cannondales.

I've been track side when Palmer came through. He made NO SENSE to watch because he did nothing special to the eye. But he just didn't slow down, didn't hang up, didn't miss a beat anywhere.
  • + 4
 @indydave124: I'd say any and every race run by Missy Giove. Seriously, google her and just watch. Be patient. Because when it starts, you're like "ooooh, she's going for it." Then you're like "Holy cow, she rides like a dude on 'roids."
Then, you're like "Man...she pulled that off"
And then you say that again
Then...awww, holy hell. She was like a bulldog that got bit in the dinger and was going after the stupid little chihuahua that did it!!!
Reckless, out of control, maniacal. You just had to see it. She had another level of skill, but it was utter madness.

 Danny Hart is wildly over looked. His run was every bit as epic as Aaron's. Aaron is undoubtedly a @#$_&- wizard but Danny Harts run was just as insane. Aaron had all the hype and adrenaline of Danny's run and Danny just pulled it out of no where.

 But wait, what about 29ers in downhill guys??

 When the 29ers first showed up this year we were told they would be faster on straight rough tracks and offer more grip. MSA should have been the perfect track to prove their advertised superiority. That all was proven to be bullsh!t this weekend.

 Greg is the goat Just like Ricky is the goat in supercross And McGrath is the king. It goes beyond what they do on a bike Gwin is a legend in the making nico is a pure legend and a few people here ever had the privilege of watching that guy ride in person on the technology of the day will tell you how fast and effortless he was on a bike .
  • + 1
 Ricky is the GOAT of MX, McGrath is the king of SX
  • + 1
 and John Holmes GOAT of SEX.

 Deer Valley, Utah. Nico raced the dual slalom for fun on his DH bike. Stacked field of World Cup racers doing a NORBA National on their way through to a World Cup. He lost to Brian Lopes in the round of 8 by a mouse fart. He is an artist.

 I feel terrible for Minnar, losing that cushion like this has to be stressful but I have watched Gwin's run about 8 times now and it still just leaves a grin on my face, most races you watch and come away either happy or disappointed by the results but that run alone will stay on your mind all week!

 One thing I learned is that Aaron is an animal

 Did anyone notice how close AG's back wheel appeared to come to a red painted rock in the last rock garden before the step down and final jump? Camera might've made it look closer than it was but it did look a near thing

 That save was unreal. I literally had to pause the vid and watch frame by frame to understand how on earth she did that. Mad.

 Gwin is the GOAT NO DOUBT
  • + 1
 Gwen is the GOAT of NO DOUBT, not Gwin. sry

 Every time I watch this replay, I'm blown away as much when I saw it live... holy balls man! Holy balls. Gwin is the friggin man!

 What happened to Manon Carpenter? Seems like radio silence from Radon.

 Gwin keeps proving it,over and over
