    Really good women's race today.

    The men had to deal with the weather.

    Lot of crashes. I hope no injuries.

    Great job (winning woman)! Glad to see her on top of the podium again. :cool: :thumbsup:

    First womens race was great! Kate Courtney showed her World Champ was no fluke in great form. Her being all muddy and dominant made me tingly in my chamois.
    Emily Batty 28th 7:44 back:( I'm sure she looked great doing it though.
    Anyone know why Annika Langvad pulled out?

    Just catching up on the red bull TV stuff for this now.

    Should be an exciting season for the women's.

    I know there are a lot of man made features, but some of these tracks look like what a lot of folks buy a 160 mm rig for, let alone a 100mm xc bike with no dropper.

    I guess the big difference is the techy down sections are very short and not sustained..


    But still..
    The Lycra Crowd don't play.
