After getting 2nd in Val d’Isere and at the World Champs in Leogang, Gee Atherton is hungry to win this one.
Elliot Jackson had a good time today going sideways everywhere he could.
Nice to see Brendog back and putting down some style on the big jumps.
Loic Bruni your new Junior World Champion could be cracking the Mens podium again this week.
Bryn Atkinson on the big balls step down huck that only a couple of riders are able to clear properly. What you can´t see is that there is a corner just before it and one basically five metres after you land, what makes the whole thing so crazy.
This region already has quiet a sports history. If you look closely you will see the shape of a running man with a torch cut into the woods in the background. 1994 the Olympic Winter Games of Lillehammer took place here.
Matt Simmonds was looking super fast today and came down behind Peaty with the second fastest time of todays timed practice.
On a track as fast as this one, Mick Hannah is definitely one to watch, as he was already going a million miles per hour today.
Aaron Gwin is riding a sleek custom finished bike this weekend with chrome stickers. Some extra bling for the finals.
