Any of you nerds going to be watching?

Just read an article about a French rider who got hit in the balls so hard by a course pole it split the sack. From seeing practise clips that course is hard enough, let alone having your balls flapping around to boot.

Any predictions on winners?

from looking at the qualifying times Matt Walker could be up for a win if he doesn't fall off... fastest on every sector but then obviously had a spill which put him back. I'm interested to see how Reece Wilson does after winning here last year, quite interesting how he's gone to flat pedals after riding clips for so long but after hearing that Gwin couldn't clip one of his feet back into his pedal last year because of too much mud build up perhaps flat pedals makes sense even if you're not used to it.

The GoPro clips in this do a good job of showing how heinous that course is. Even the 'easy' bits look nails! The little section about 6:58 in looks death if you mess that up...

Think it'll be like the Worlds where it's just a case of whoever manages to piece together a half decent run. The last woods looks absolutely brutal, and somewhat of a lottery. Supposed to have showers over the next few days so I can't see it getting any better. Should make for interesting viewing...

I love how the pinkbike headline (and your bit) makes it sound like the pole hit him. Unless someone pulled it back and let it go (which would be awesome) I think we need a little more victim blaming on this one.

Hopefully Tahnee doesn't go balls out and fudge herself in the first race, and it would be really nice to see danny hart do well after mondraker basically dropped him out of know where

You are right hasn't been on mondraker for a while, he was on Saracen last and don't think left on the best of terms.
