Rain threw the biggest spanner in the works for the men.
Only the very best got close to the times of drier runs.
#gwinning strikes again.
The championship is wide open for Val Di Sole.

minnaar copped a DQ for breaking the tape and not re-entering at the same point
i can only imagine the self-inflicted headgames they all would have been experiencing in the start hut waiting their turn on course :cry:
definitely not my idea of a good time...

He was some 20 seconds back and in 70-something-ith place anyway, so don't think the DQ will impact on his overall?

he was 20sec back because he went through the tape and came off by the looks of it (or at least get off and turn his bike around)
same thing happened to gwin at lourdes, tis racing
forgive me for a little bench racing but i reckon if he hadn't gone off course, i reckon he would have stood a good chance of being in the top 10...

Ah I see now - my thinking was that he'd crashed, not bothered to go back to where he exited and was still 20 seconds down, in which case the penalty is justified. But if he'd tried to go back but not quite got it right, then it's a different story. Rules are still rules I guess.

As for the bench racing, reckon it's fair to say that he would've won it outright if he'd not crashed and been faster than everyone else ;)

I still remember two groms arguing at the bottom of the hill at the 06 worlds about how Blenki should've won because he is much faster than Cam Cole and he only got second because he crashed. :rolleyes:

If my calculations are correct, this is on at 11pm on Saturday so I'll be watching this all go down.
