Lots of people wanted to see Sam Hill riding the way we know he can this week, and he certainly looks like he's going for it. But a small mistake is all it takes these days and he ended up down in 27th.
Justin Leov took a spill in practice and a small sharp rock found its way through his elbow guards...some heavy duty surgery required.
Josh Bryceland had a great weekend for 3rd, although its amazing he can go so fast and pedal so little....whats the secret?
Steve Peat had a fairly solid weekend, maybe not on the podium where he wants to be but enough to get the nerves going.
Times were so tight on this course that it came down to just 0.2 sec between Greg Minnaar and the points he needed to keep in touch with Gwinny in the overall.
What an amazing weekend for Brook MacDonald! His first world cup win on a course where its touch and go between a crash and a win. He walked the fine line perfectly.
Things didn’t go exactly to plan for Aaron Gwin this week, but he did enough to wrap up the 2012 WC overall title, by just 10 points.
Second place today for Emmeline Ragot and she is the only other rider who can challenge Rachel for the overall points.
Rachel Atherton had no problems this week and took a solid win. But its off to Norway to decide the overall title.
The French Chainsaw Massacre!
