Well, he went ahead and did it didn't he? I mean, it was always coming, being the absolute champion he is, beating Schurter in a direct duel too, even sweeter. Mathieu is a living legend already. Looking good for his Olympic gold dream. Who would dare bet against him?

Massive win for MVP before his break. Also congrats to Cink on the podium in home race.
Congrats to Kate, Ellen and Haley a bummer for Anne Tauber and great to see Jenny back.
Shut up, Jens!

The WC series is completely trashed and meaningless with MVP missing. Every victory by the others will now come with an asterisk. I'm not saying MVP shouldn't take a break (ofc he should) but rather that he has his priorities wrong. He should focus on road and mtb and ditch 'cross, or at least ride a heavily reduced 'cross programme, so that he can rest during winter. Must be maddening for Canyon as I'm sure they'd much rather have the marketing exposure that comes from mtb success.

Ft. Will is always a cool DH IMO. Those French kids keep getting faster! :) I can't believe that he saved it at the end (that would have been UGLY!)!

Was a great DH race. Nice to see Rachel win on their (Atherton's) own-branded bike.
Insane nose dive from Amaury on the finish line - scary stuff :)

Kerschbaumer will probably ride himself into shape durning the season, the guy is rather unique.
He doesn't touch his bike durning the winter, he goes ski mountaineering and hunting up in the mountains. Add the fact that he's really old school when it comes to his training and riding, he won't even use a heart rate monitor and that he doesn't even own a TV and you get the picture, he's a rather unique character.
He's also not a big talker and seems to perform at his best at altitude.

He is an odd one ... unique!

He seems to be starting off compared to his normal level though.
