    That's fine, as there are only about 4 competitors in the field.

    30 on the Quali start list? Unless that just includes seeded riders or something.

    Is the Sean McCarrol that is listed the McCarrol from MudCows/96 Worlds fame? If so, that's bloody awesome.

    Jesus, Minaar must be running a 600lb spring or something.

    Why does PB still use that stupid spreadsheet format for the results? It's a modern world, there are about a million better was to display a list of names than that POS.

    It takes time so they won't do it. The same reason half of the movie industry still premieres trailers on yahoo movies even though it's the herpes of video players.

    Checkers or wreckers Brannigan qualified 6th, but his splits are horrible except for 7th at the last split. Musta made up time at the bottom? Strange.

    so since Mik and Brannigan aren't top20 protected riders coming into this round, does that mean we're not going to see them on the live racing feed? half of the top 20 qualifiers aren't going to be in the feed if that's the case. Redbull needs to fix that sh!t asap!

    They qualified 2nd and 6th, so they will be on the live feed.

    i thought they showed top 30 regardless, and they only showed top 20 protected if they're outside of the top 30

    Wasn't Lourdes only top 20 in the live feed? Pretty sure that happened and I got angry about it.

    Checked a handful of weather forecasts for cairns, looks like it may be dry down there for the race. Surveyed four sites, 3/4 show essentially no precip and one said 90%.

    Leaving work. Grabbing beer. Racing starts in 3 and a half hours. I imagine things will get interesting in 5 hours. I am going to have to pace myself...
