 For the riders doing full pulls I think these time training results have value.

 Did we ever hear what his mechanical was at world champs? I remember seeing him drop in going fast, camera cut away, and then you hear later he wasn't in the mix.

 @sarahmoore: Mwahaha, that picture has some sort of comical aspect to it. mostly the framing that lets you understand he's moving out of the frame, the obviously unhappy (grumpy ?) face, the bump in the ground that covers half the rear wheel and makes the bike look even more broken than it is. You expect the "that's all folks !" animation just right after :p But anyway his pace is impressive already after so much time off the bike.

 Nice to see Amaury up there! Timed training doesn't say much but I think he has it in him as soon as he's ready again! Can be fun to watch a Vergier/Pierron/Coulanges battle for gold in the future.

Bit off topic, but: It's 2021.. Isn't time to stop writing stuff like "Hoell" instead of Höll in lists like these? Same with slavic letters.. We have the technology, every computer can make the names right even though it's not on the keyboard layout - it's just lazy and sad to see the lack of effort to make names right. To pronounce correctly is a different thing..

Fulc the pronunciation coz you dont care about that right @WSB ?

Or is that pronounciation if your from North America ?

 What's with the UCI snubing Jr. Women?? Even last weekend there were pictures everywhere of all the winners except Yankova. Don't drop the ball UCI and media... we are just starting to see some growth in women's downhill.
  • 5 0
 I expect that it’s because they’re aren’t any. I find it pretty pathetic that there are only 14 elite women racing but maybe 70/80 Elite men. Someone needs to pump some money into growing the women’s racing
  • 7 1
 @enduroNZ: I think it starts with women’s riding in general. I’d say 80 men to 14 women actually skews in favor of women when looking at the ratio of men/woman who ride regularly. I’d love to see more female racers but you can’t pull from an empty pool…
  • 4 0
 @witica: Agreed... but you can't get anyone in the pool if you don't give those young girls out there any hero's to inspire them to ride fast. There needs to be more effort from UCI, media and brands. My daughter has remarked several times this summer that she is the only female standing in the lift line when we were park riding. There seems to be a gap between women riding xc/enduro and downhill. That's what, in my non-female opinion, is being overlooked by the UCI.

 @JustGivinerrr: i think uci is only the last in line to do nothing. local support like in skiing would change that big time

 @enduroNZ: Its not going to grow if there is no exposure. Redbull needs to come to the party too, at the beginning of the live womens feed they should show the top 3 runs from the juniors. Same goes for the beginning of the live mens feed - top 3 runs from the mens juniors. There are lots of kids watching with their parents and if they see other juniors racing they may be inspired

 If you look at the top speed, both 76 km/hr, I think he's sitting where he wants to be Wink

 Over 70km/h on the woods is nuts.
I would not try this speed on a straight, wide and closed road.

 @Schlumo: It's only about 45mph. I do this speed regulalry on my skinny tyred, steep angles, short wheelbase roadbike (down a particularly steep hill near me). It's fine if a little hairy on a road bike. On a long, low and slack DH bike with big tyres, 45mph is childs play. I don't know what speeds you'd need to reach to make a DH bike get all squirrely and nervous, but I'm guessing its in excess of 70mph (113kph)

 @gabriel-mission9: ha ha, your f*cked!

 @nert: @nert: I've topped 80kph on a road bike. Steep roads and big gears make for big speed. The pro roadies top 110kph, albeit on closed roads. If I reach those kinds of speeds on a mountain bike it probably means I've tumbled off a cliff though.

 How long before Mathilde Bernard gets a team sponsorship? Her ahem 'track record' in BMX, pump track, 4X indicate she has the skills.

 She is 7 seconds faster. Let us see if she can hold that on race day. That would be an epic time gap.

 Coulanges is my new favorite rider. I love him so much.

 I kind of understand you. Coulanges is impressive, terribly fast, and promising.... but as a French I prefer Daprela... and Vergier now. Their personnalities are unique I'd say, as much as their talents... and they are kind of funny on interviews.
These bloody frenchies are so damn fast (don't ask me why, I don't know) BUT I'd confess that I was more than stoked for Greg Minnaar last week end Smile

 @yupstate: Do you know what the constitution says about church & state? Americans love to rag on Muslims with their theocracy, but the US isn't far behind. And actually moving rapidly in that direction with all of your Christian fundamentalists.

For some reason it won't let me quite/reply directly to you in the convo thread...

 @m1dg3t If you really believe that to be true, you're way off base; that's a ridiculous statement/comparison. I don't watch the extreme left wing news sites or TV channels but I wouldn't be surprised if that's what they try to portray; but that's total BS. It's not about pushing a religion; it's just that they believe the baby is a created life and it's murder. If you believe humans are all just accidental biological computers then you can just shut down any you want I suppose. I have my own personal opinions that actually are a little gray on the topic believe it or not. But you just need to be careful about what BS you see in/on the news. But that's a long way from church/state separation where the government is actively murdering or deporting people based on religion. Here we have a religious choice, which depending on what you believe will shape your life-view and how you feel about specific topics, that's all.

He's religious and lives in the desert and may have right leaning views (though I can't find evidence of this with my weak internet skills).
Where's the evidence he doesn't understand science? And I mean the lefty science to do with medicine and vaccines, not the manly science to do with forks and G force.
