Not when you're a s l o w guy... :) I live vicariously through fast people!
I'm sure it's in the coming, but it would be nice to see the entire race after-the-fact, not just the top 3 runs...
Isn't it annoying when people can find a way to bitch about ANYTHING??? I'm gonna shut my hole and go lube my chain or something...

Would be funny if Rennie won it.

Money's on Hill though... 5 second win on the track earlier this year has to have everyone else pretty worried.

Yeah Hill's arguably going to want it more than anyone (but of course everyone wants it!)

My money's on Hill, but my hopes are on Gee. Would be cool to see Peat finally win, but I'm quite pessimistic and would rather see Gee continue his Hill-beating :)

Towing the party line.
The weather is rainy today, t storms tommorrow and clearing out for the weekend. Just walked the course with Sam. It is super slick in some sections, steep in all sections and ridiculous when wet.

Sounds like a course where super slack bikes could be a huge advantage.....Hill (supposedly) has this covered, wonder if anyone else does...?....aren't Commencal's a fairly steep bike....?......

It's not so much steep/slack bikes. It's going to be straightening out the corners and avoiding as much as the nasty sections as possible. The course is basically 1 huge rock /root garden with 1 major high speed section thrown in for good measure. You are into the nasty stuff about 50m in. That first nasty section goes on for about 1km at least. It's brutal.
