Thunderstorms every day in the forecast with less probability for the weekend. But still exciting.
Val di sole was never raced in the wet, because, ääähm, Valley of the sun.

Another preview of the track. No dust.

For those of us that don't speak italian, what's that in MPH?
:confused: No unit converters in USA available?

240km/h = 142,9 mph
1 km/h = 0,6214mph

Also:
0°C = 32° Fahrenheit = 273,15 Kelvin
20°C = 68° Fahrenheit = 293,15 Kelvin
100°C = 212° Fahrenheit = 373,15 Kelvin

1 liter [l] = 61,024 cubic inches

Update:
It's definitely going to be wet. Maybe no rain on raceday as the probability for rain during the week sinks to 20%, but definitely not dusty like in previous years.

Well that worked out flawlessly, haha!
I call Minnaar for the win. The smoothest limo driver in town will win over the super gnarly rockhard suspension taming™ in case of wet Italian ruts.
But I am not sure what the Godfather has to say about RockJeebus...

^^^ Damn that looks so good. Time for Bruni to finally pull off a win, but I suppose Gwin will just straightline to victory, no matter if it's wet or not.

Hey, hey, hey, WTF? 6:00 on a Wednesday and no Jackalope commentary and no Claudio preview?

Unacceptabru!!!

C'mon Claudio, suck it up and ride the wet course.

C'mon Jackalope, crack open your wikipedia for some random facts!

Claudios run was on the redbull site, now it's down again. Did they have to censor it?
"seems like i got the guys at @gopro and @redbull too busy trying to get rid of all my swearing during the ‪#‎pov‬ run at @valdisolebikeland . waiting for it to appear on @redbulltv , @flavio.kent and i are practicing something else......"
