    They interviewed him before the live coverage. He crashed into a tree in the morning practice. Had not been diagnosed yet. Didn't sound too positive about next week.

    Just finished watching the race. Holy sheet man, that was gnar balls. Thought Loris had it and then... Freakin great racing this year. Bummer for Gwin though. Hope his shoulder isn't messed up too bad. Also a bummer for Dakota since he crashed twice dammit. He'll get there eventually.

    Gotta link for the replay? I hate navigating Red Bull's site trying to find something specific.

    I tried to link it but apparently that's out of my wheelhouse. It's pretty easy to find though.

    It must be my Chromebook... their site just doesn't play nice with it.

    I only get a blank screen, with different things to link to underneath. Probably means I need to go ride my bike.

    Gwin said his breaking finger was the size of a sausage. Luck has not been on his side this season.

    Val Di Sole this weekend. My money's on Aaron Gwin!

    Wait, what? Injured still? You don't say! OK, then I'll bet on some French guy to win, and three more in the top five. Brosnan gets second.

    Well I didn't pay attention. The race was today and not tomorrow. :facepalm:

    I looked at the results. Good Lord - the time gaps between 1st and 2nd in men was astounding and with women was 5x worse!

    I was almost right - 3 French in the top 5 - but not the winner. Oh - and Brosnan did not get 2nd.

    It was a good race....the winning times were impressive.

    Think of how the women's race would have turned out if we would have had the full roster.

    I'll probably just watch the highlights again, but just saw the results, good to see 2nd place finisher in the podium.

    Just watched the Lenzerheide race. Wow, wow, wow! Look at the time!

    But I agree, the #2 finisher is AMAZING! The only one within a second of the winner. Someone should sign that kid - he shows promise!

    The series will be decided at Snowshoe, West Virginia! Two Frenchies battling it out for the Overall World Cup on hillbilly soil. :thumbsup: :cool:

    And vice versa - one guy didn't look particularly fast, and he never does. Just 0.9 back though.

    The winner - well, he looked fast everywhere. to my eye.



    (I have to laugh. We are talking in "spoiler alert" language as though anyone else on this forum is interested and is still going to watch yesterday's race.)
