    Ya talent is so deep. Probably 10ish that have a legit shot. Hope Shaw can bag one. Nice kid and sooo talented. Nice to see Suarez put a good one down. Another nice kid that always seems positive despite having the injury bug. Top 10 is amazing

    Finally got to watch it. Great race, and having a deep pool of contenders makes it so much more interesting. Wonder what iles could have done if he'd stayed upright.

    And Minaar, would have been a potentially impressive top 10

    Any objections to lumping Crankworx stuff into this thread? Joyride was out of hand this year. Slopestyle is absolutely bonkers now compared to ten years ago.

    Geeeettttinnnnng Clooooooooose Toooooooooo Raaaaaace Daaaaaaaay!!!!!
    So psyched. Hitting Angel Fire this weekend. Will be nice to watch some WC after a day of feeling like a hero on the big bike.
    If you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it tubeless, I will. I got spare time.

    I don't take much from the timed training runs... but... Gwin is as fast as anyone.... and Pierron is still the dude to beat.

    It'll be a good race. Times are gonna be crazy tight, and all the contenders are present and more or less riding at 100%. Or at least 90%.

    Still want to see Shaw take one, but I'm not sure this is the course for him.

    Yes Shaw is the most deserving without a win. Seems like a really nice kid too. Just get it out of the way, then all the top dogs can get back at it for world champs. Greenland could use a first win too


    Scrub a dub then Loic finishes with the lightning turn. Super fun looking course

    Yeah, I wonder if some holes will form in those woods sections... the rest looks pretty bike park manicured.

    They were forecasting rain , good bet on holes developing . Looks like they’re already ripping new lines/ruts in the trees today. Dirt looks amazing right now

    Maes not having been on a dh bike since fort bill isn’t showing. Kid is so composed

    Without any nationalistic tendency, I'm inclined to think the following:
    Laurie
    Bulldog
    Connor
    Brendog
    Remi
    Bernard
    Brayton
    Moir
    Neko
    ............. are more "deserving", and would be more exciting to see get their first top box. Some more realistic than others. Give the kid a couple more years to show he's consistent, and do something to get more Americans psyched on riding bikes.

    Iíd be fine w any of those. Neko would be a dark horse for sure(didnít he win one already? Chainkess?), brayton is entertaining but itís a long shot if he makes it to the bottom let alone win. Brook is a similar wildmN but heís atleast has that top speed this year. Like brayton, too reckless for my money(he has a win though). Moir could be a good dark horse pick but I think he needs a box first. Same with Kerr . Brendog is a fave watch but no way for a win. Connor would be cool but he needs a super gnar track. Laurie has consistent speed and Iíd never count him out. Might not be gnarly enough for Remi as well, but home track/zone(I picked him but I thought the track would be tighter and more French than what it is). I just feel bad for Luca. He had the top speed the first few world cups and still looked composed, then got shaken a bit when he couldnít close the deal. Sooo many possibilities
    Maes
    Iles
    Greg
    Gee(only one to hit 50km/h
    Gwinn
    Troy
    Loris
    Estaque
    Masters
    Probably be Amaury
    I think I change my pick every 5 minutes. Going to be a fun watch. All those have had the speed in the last couple years at some point

    Yeah, I'd like to see a top 10 for estaque and e. Masters. I'd also like to see a good finish from phil atwill.

    Fairclough, bulldog, remi, and fearon are all great, but they've had their moments. I'd rather see laurie, shaw, moir or (unrealistically) neko put something together.

    Really good camera angles on this one. Some creative line choices. Must be yesterday. Rain for today changed the course a fair bit



    We’ve all probably seen this but I’ll throw this up. Maes looking composed af. One clip he’s rolling in tight behind Gwinn and carrying smooth speed

    Whoever designed and taped that course did a good job. I can't think of many other courses that have such distinct line choices where one of them isn't clearly the best option.

    Ya I wonder if more options will pop up with the wet or maybe less. I keep seeing pics of new sections with multi lines

    Or even those grip shift lockouts people were using. Loic did say the course was quite physical with a few sections that you really have to get on the gas.
