    looks good it will dry out with more use but it if rains as its meant to then perhaps not......both the XC and DH will be interesting

    I just watched the track walk with Wyn Masters interviewing quite a few riders , the track looks to be quite diabolical in places due to the weather , seems there may be rain / snow each day as well .

    Last night was the XC racing , pretty difficult and slippery track for both races , we ( Aust ) got pipped for 2 nd in the Womens right on the line , So Becky Maconnel got 3 rd for the second year running . The mens was a good race for second after the leader cleared out just a couple of laps in . The Downhill is on tonight if it goes ahead , the weather prediction is for Rain / Snow and the forcasters are saying 95% chance of real rain for lower down the hill where the really steep slippery root infested section through the trees is :eek7 , it will be a war of attrition I believe . We have 2 qualifiers in the top 10 in Our local fella here Jack Moir and last years runner up Troy Brosnan who qualified 6th and 7 th respectively . Can't wait to watch the sliding go down !

    Fantastic, the downhill last weekend was just sensational, staggering to watch them get down that course let alone at full speed

    So Bathurst, Moto GP, last stages of the Giro and the Downhill makes the soul destroying lockdown less mind numbing for a few hours..........
