It's been awesome getting to see these riders out on course. Seeing even the best look things over before attempting, sometimes even crashing on the way to dialing it in, shows just how difficult some of this stuff is. I always knew from being here that the cameras don't do it justice - nice to validate that! L-enfer de Sainte Anne (the 'mini Alpe d'Huez' before La Beatrice) is incredibly steep - up to 45 degrees on the corners and it's not slick rock out here! La Marmot is exactly as I remember it (painful and tricky). It's pretty incredible what they've packed in to 3.9km. There is one new piece, La Germaine, which includes a very tricky, rocky descent. Most of the guys will ride a very direct line. I watched Neff ride the same line and make it look easy. But it's mostly style points, probably half a second quicker, if that.

I'll be in the feed zone (nomnomnom)...

By just a single point, Scaredy_Cat denies NzidaR the satisfaction of sealing the overall championship with a victory in the final round. But even todays win was not enough to claim a spot on the final podium. At the end of a hard fought season, Ryda takes third place, wgtngrl second and NzidaR claims the gold medal to go along with the silver he won in the downhill comp.

Just wondering if there is going to be an XC VFR this year with Cairns approaching. Fingers crossed :)

Of course I was planning to run the cross-country series

I've still got a week and a half right?

same rules as last year, 8500 points, 7 riders, any mix of male or female
For the downhill I plan to award double points for the world championship final bonus round
but for XCO they have the world champs in the middle of the season so I'm not sure that would be such a good idea

Thanks Kev :) We fly in 2 days so it feels close.

Fair one re XCO champs in July. Maybe add the Olympics - definitely one race where anything can happen!
