    Anyone have any updates. Seeding runs are tomorrow and DH practise started today. Any websites with updates?

    How about a betting pool for top Three Elite and Jnr's ?
    Not in any order yet, ill think about it, but Hill, Peat, Barel, Minnaar should all be up there.

    i was talkin to my friend who is there racing and he said the course was getting very rough and beat up, full of bumps and very demanding for the arms, so all is normal for a world championship course.

    mostly hi speed and some nastiness in the forest.

    tomorrow morning a few hours of practice till noon, then quali from 2 or 3 pm cant remember.

    Ok, Some updates for you. I got into Milan yesterday and met Transcend there. We got a rental car and headed out. I was driving and from what I have read I was a bit nervous about it. Man it was fun. not to many rules here in Italy. At least for driving.

    When we got to Livigno we got to see the lay of the land. This ENTIRE town is into the race. Every hotel, every building pretty much is used for something in the race. It is pretty cool! After a while we finally got our credencials and got to the race. Man the course is long and fast. We got through about half the course walking by the time practice was over today. (about 30 minutes ago)
    Peat was looking FAST! as were both Minnar and Hill. The course has beautiful mountain scenery around the whole place and it is just incredible. Qualifying starts in about 2 hours so we will be out of here soon. but that is the quick and dirty of it so far.

    Predictions??? Mens DH is next to impossible to give an accurate top 3 never mind top 5 but Hill is to fast at the moment, but Livingo sounds a whole lot different to Schladming and Pila, so maybe the larger riders will have a larger advantage, Peat? He could and should have done it at this stage, everyone seems to count Fabien out, he won here last year, and he is a brick **** house. Graves could do it he
    has beaten Minnaar and Rennie etc.. already this year, I don't think Rennie has a chance, Kovarik, top 5 yes, top step no! Pascal, Atherton 1+2, Pannozzo, Vasquez, Neethling, Gracia, Justin Leov, Marc BEAUMONT?, Leikhonen, Hannah...............so many names,???

    Did I forget to mention Strait for the Junior men....sorry.

    4x should be killer!

    yea i think kyle definitely has a chance for the top spot of the podium even.

    i also think on a good day berny can beat vanessa esp on a rough track. of course probably not much to do about a-c

    hope the mens race turns ot to be as good as it looks on paper with so many in contention for gold.

    Since there are no quali points given at worlds - there are always mad strategies going on in qualifying. Often a team manager likes the idea of his rider sitting on the hot seat for most of the time in front of the woreld press and tv. Also the track is in better condition at the beginning of the day - because of the huge worlds field - more than just top 80 are riding the finals - everyone qualifies.

    This in from the Clay Porter:
    As many of you know I am in Europe rignt now on my 21st birthday filming the
    World Championships. Though I would send a mass email to you all and let you
    guys know how things are going. I left New York on Monday afternoon and got
    into Milan tuesday morning then waited around the Milan airport for about
    three hours for Andrew Neethling and Curtis Keene to show up. Meet up with
    them then got a ride through the Italian alps to Livigno, the site of the
    2005 MTB World Championships. As soon as Andrew and I arrived with the two
    South African team managers I meet up with friends and fellow filmmakers.
    They quickly told me that I would need to pay 500 euros to buy the rights to
    shoot motion pictures here. Luckily enough, Robbie McNaughton, Australian
    distributor of Synopsis and fellow filmmaker talked the UCI (united cycling
    international) into splitting the 500 cost three ways among myself and the
    two other filmmakers here. So it ended up being only 165 euros to shoot.
    Still alot but giving the intense and offical accredetation and press room
    it was alright. All in all, my first worlds experience was intense, buying
    film rights and tyring to get accredited as a memeber of the press but it
    all worked out and I am the proud new owner of a white UCI TV bib. Got
    settled into our hotel with Andrew Neethling and David K and started to
    shoot the downhill the next morning. The track is amazing, very fast and
    tons of jumps. Already the downhill footage captured is by far the most
    intense and exciting downhilling I have ever filmed. Just had lunch with
    Jared Graves, Curtis Keene, Needles, David and Fitzy from Fox. All there
    really is to eat here is pizza, so Ive been eating a lot of pizza. Am about
    to go shoot downhill qualifying and then have a birthday dinner and probably
    go out to all the pubs around here. Cant go to wild though beacuse dh
    practice starts again at 8 tommorow moring. Hope everyone is well and wish
    you all could be here. Will try and update on my European filming adventure
    when I get a chance.

    Talk to everyone soon,
    Clay

    Just looked at the qualifying results and just want to point some facts:

    Junior Women Scarlett Hagen with a 4.31.42 would have qualified in second position in the elite woman :eek:

    Look at the difference between the 2nd and 3rd place in the Junior Women, again :eek:

    Anna-Caroline would have qualified 75th in the elite men, beating 27 male, ouch that must be hard on the ego...

    Kudos USA elite women, Kathy Pruitt in 6th and the other 2, well the other 2 are DNS...how about that Stikman, these chicks rule hein? :nopity:

    Junior Man, Brandon Fairclough with a 4.05.99 would have qualified 9th in the elite man, whoa that kid is über fast...

    Kyle Strait finished 4th fro quailifing, not too bad, but still 5 seconds behind Brendon.

    If it rains, Sam Hill is going to be World Champ, we all remember Austria, and Italy, both in the rain, and adding up the margin of victories, it was 14 seconds.

    i was waiting - but nobody noticed that Barel was about 1 second quicker than Hill after the split. Must have had a crash, stop or something up top. He takes the pressure off himself. Interesting

    A lot of people are going the same way as myself in the predictions, Barel was 15 secs down, mind games, weather games, nerves or something simliar to last year.

    Havukainen DNS??? DDD whats the scealo there.

    To answer Narlus's question, Ger is riding in the elites. Ben quailified in 47th, lit 20secs back on rail road Hill.

    Check it out, The World Champ. is going to be televised in the US, too bad I have a crappy dial up connection at home, if not I would pay $4.99 to watch it. I guess I will have to wait for Earthed 3, or Hypnosis.
