I would have been the first to doubt nice weather for MSA in October, but so far the weather looks great. It's been bone dry for the last 7 days and the forecast shows another 7 days with practically 0% chance of rain including on the Saturday of the race. Rain forecasted on Sunday though, and it's still far ahead so that could change.

I'd say it's more of an exception than the rule though, but it seems like we might be lucky this year.

Long DNS this round.

Because sketched out or got hurt?

In Jack's video he was speaking to Dean, who mentioned something a long the lines "I'd like to at least come out of this one all good and be able to finish at MSA". Ruh roh, guy should have knocked on wood.

Wonder what happened with Kade? He seemed to be riding fine in the videos I watched, even if he probably wouldn't qualify..

Also hope that Canadian junior guy is good. He was the first guy out and ate it hard in the rock garden. He walked to the side, but obviously couldn't ride down and DNF'd.

What tire are most of the Maxxis sponsored riders running? It looks like a shorty but not a shorty. Personally I ride snowshoe enough to think I need a set.

not the first time i've heard that rumor. however i'd say whistler probably has more of their ducks in a row between infrastructure and a track.
Big if true, but.. infrastructure is lacking. And the current course isn't suitable for a WC, especially when wet.

Did you see the two dopes that ran across the course right in front of Hugo Marini about 3 seconds into his run? Morons.
I seen them Brother. Fucking possibly Ruint his whole run? Right at the start as well? Fuck,that would throw me off as a normal man,as a semi or pro racer,that is one of the worst things that can happen!

Gwin has to come back and win 2,that’s right 2 to cement this matter like a child dipping her hands in it!

Who else thinks Dak has a chance? He had a very good run last year and he seems to be getting faster and faster every race.

In one of the Vital videos Greg is talking about a new Maxxis tire that some of the guys are running. I think it's called the Mudslayer or something like that?

On one of Moir's videos watching practice, he was set up in one of the tricky rock gardens. Asa just buttered it, cleaner than any of the pros, and gapped out of it. That kid's a prodigy.

would love to see that but he has to contend with the dream crusher himself, Bruni and his shitty lockout…
