MSA DOWNHILL QUALIES

It's f@#ken Jesse Beare !!!!!!!!

Whilst everyone else saw a dumbed down track, Steve Smith saw opportunity. Today that optimistic view yielded a number one seed. Whilst Smith looks all set to take his World Cup win, those who have seeded in behind can only be described as the hungriest of the hungry. Danny Hart is little over a second down whilst, Sam Blenkinsop and Aaron Gwin are well within range in 3rd and 4th. Mr all too consistent Gregg Minnaar slots into 5th whilst all round Aussie good guy Sam Hill is in 6th. All up finals are set to go off! …View More

MSA. MIST AND SLUSH

Dave McMillan gets in some airtime. All out speed and jumps means plenty of time to slap bass, hopefully we'll see him in the top 80 once again.

“Dumbed down”, that’s what the riders say. For a track that is renown as ‘the mans track’, it’s a little bit of a let down for some, for others its a chance to shine though.

“LIKE A KANGAROO ON A TRAMPOLINE”

Remi Thirion, this guy has the skills and it's also rad to see another face at the top.

Remi Thirion the man everyone suspected but no one wanted to back. Thirion has that all out speed, that on the edge look on a bike, that can mean one of two things when it comes to race runs and that is he will either crash in magnificent style or come away with one amazing win. Today it was the latter.
Whilst Steve Smith made early proclamations that he would be easily knocked from the hot seat, the assault took a long time to come. Perhaps it was the large break in racing due to a rather heavy crash from Cam Cole who had to be airlifted out or perhaps it was course deterioration. Rider after rider came increasingly close as the race entered the top ten and it looked as if it would be Sam Hills day, for many.
After seeding in fifth Remi Thirion took off out of the start gate and completed a run that was not only the fastest time on the clock but the most visually dominate of the day so far. Straight lining where possible, staying out of the ruts and generally slaying to ride into the hot seat. …View More
