Righto, unless you’ve been living under a rock or possibly only get on the Internet once in a while (really??) then you’ll know by now that the Champery round of the World Cup is on this weekend. Who’s your pick for the win? Time margins? Top Kiwi etc? Let us know in the Comments…..

The Downhill race is Saturday and XC, Sunday. Freecaster will be broadcasting live and rumour has it they have plenty of cameras on the course so expect some good coverage!!

  1. I want it to be anyone other than Gee Atherton or Minaar, but particularly Cam Cole or Brendog Fairclough. Or Gwin.Blenkinsop is looking good too.

    I could go on all day, but I think it will be a Minaar/Atherton showdown.

    Time margins? It will be close as all hell. Winning time 10-15 seconds faster than 2007, top ten on the same second.

    It WILL rain for the final.

    Top Kiwi will be Blenkinsop if it rains. Cole possibly isn’t as quick as Blenkinsop on the steeps, but is better able to ride smooth and within the tape when needed. If it stays dry, he would be my pick. I would love to see Wyn get a top ten here!

    This promises to be an amazing race, I can’t wait!!

  3. You’ll have to narrow it down there Scotty, from practice I only saw half a dozen of the 20 or so kiwis here wearing gloves. Brendon looks damn fast but so does Blinky, seems like the bigger/heavier you are the harder it is to scrub speed off for all the corners. Funny that.
