    What a race, that was properly exciting stuff! Unlucky Laurie, Finn was on it, storming run. Hapoy for the young fella. ūüėĀ

    Finn Iles winning wasn’t massively surprising but the Overall going down to the final round of the World Cup season definitely was.

    All eyes on the World Champs now (August 24-28th) the race that doesn’t matter yet really, really does.

    What a race, and what a season so far.

    Without wishing to go down the cliched, obvious route… this is the best World Cup season of the modern era. Every race has been fascinating, exciting and full of surprises.

    Well done to Goldstone, Gale, Holl and Iles today.

    Cannot wait to see certain racers eyeballing each other at the World Champs (Gale & Hemstreet, Goldstone & Williams, Holl & Nicole, Pierron & Iles…) Grudge match central.

    Finn’s Chain was off pedalling out of the rocks at about 3.25. Bananas.

    Amazing race. Hope Minnaar is ok after that crash, Pierron also.

    Had Laurie in my fantasy team on Pink Bike, but can’t help feeling chuffed for Finn finally doing it. Been on the cusp for so long but always in Loic’s shadow.

    It was a brilliant race, I’ve loved watching it this year.

    I‚Äôm a casual fan though who has only seen DH racing here and there until this year. I‚Äôve got a couple of things that I don‚Äôt quite get with the TV coverage‚Ķ Is it actually 100% live? There always seems to be a section of track missing (typically the first quarter or so) that just seems to be skipped. They‚Äôll come down the start ramp then round a few corners and then suddenly they‚Äôre the guts of 2 minutes down the track and some of it is not filmed at all ‚Äď like Greenland‚Äôs looped manual the other week.

    I completely understand that they can’t film the whole track but the way it’s presented makes it seem like it’s slightly delayed from live then edited a bit to make it all work in one continuous presentation. Is this what’s happening?

    Fantastic race.
    Not looking forward to what Disney have been hinting will happen to next years coverage. Glad Red Bull are going out on a high note.

    @andyp79 ‚Äď the top half of each run is edited then the bottom half is live. Very clever stuff.

    Just caught up.

    Felt appropriate having just flatted today and destroyed a tyre on my trail bike. MSA is gnarly.

    What a race.

    Massive FOR Finn that, I bet they partied hard.

    Little bit gutted Greenland of course. But amazing for Finn and the crowd must have been nuts.

    Was lucky enough to get to MSA for the DH and walk the course. Fantastic watching the racers take practise runs. Finn Iles was out on foot at 9:30am rechecking his lines. Crowd went wild when he won. You could just feel his speed as he swept by. So smooth too. Laurie Greenland had the beat scrub over the step up approaching the end of the course. Could barely see daylight between him and the ground. Awesome.
