    Watching that video, I feel like windham lack the real "wow" factor. Helmet cams usually lame everything down though. Im still so stoked for it. Im already Gwinning

    I think the track looks great. It's fast, and fun. I would ride that! It was a great race last year

    I sense plenty of wow factor once the riders are at WC race tempo on Sunday. Lots of bumps and compressions to keep you honest. I'd hit it (as well as the deck once or twice in a couple of the rock sections)!!!

    They should drop out some of these places and have bromont and msa in the worlds.

    Yea, thats what some people said last year before the race and the WC riders loved the course - and they are the ones whose opinion matters.

    Now come on. It's not the racers opinion that matters. It's all of us e-tards that watch footage online, not actually ride the courses, that should decide where the WC's should be held.

    Bromont definitely belongs on the list as much as MSA does, but its important for the sport to be represented in the USA as well given the potential for growth.

    This will be a big one for Gwin. Hopefully he can keep calm and have a clean but fast run in the finals.

    P-special I knew what ya meant, I know everyone has a hard on for their own country. But theres a reason why Bromont didn't make the cut.... Blame Canada.

    I know I know,can't have it all.

    They should have a vote poll,or just have both :D:D

    4 real is it the canadian cycling assosiation ??? or the uci

    mainly id like to race the uci at bromont no questions even asked.

    edit

    p.s i'd do windham,no paperwork to enter however,and would be scared to have my **** stolen thanks to license plate :P

    tell bromont to at least put a bid in if you want them to have the WC back again so badly... then you could blame the uci :thumb:

    Anyhow...it's not like Bromont is THE downhill race or track. Is it any fun to ride that rocky track?

    That's the big question mark w/ Bromont. I'm not sure how interested they are in it.

    Nice. Looks fun and beating at the same time. Dirt that actually has water in it, siiiick!

    Too bad that coast is so damn far away.

    LoL... she rides DH so that's pretty rad...

    I wouldn't call it "cruising" so much as "taking 5" from the ol' workload... my days of getting hammered Wed night through Sunday morning are over. :D

    Time to get back to work.

    I'm just confused about Gabriella Williams' nationality. She sure didn't sound like English is a second language.

    She said she was from the Czech Republic, so I guess it could be possible that english is at least close to a first language to her. Plus it's nice having a blonde on the world cup circuit... I like blondes:thumb:

    Just as its hard to think matti has english as a second language. Could be that she has spent a lot of her years in a english speaking country.

    smaller european countries often don't synchronize foreign tv shows, so they learn a lot of english from just watching tv with subtitles.
