Does anyone know if they're going to take an hour break in between women's and men's again?

as they only show the top 20 live, yes. why they don't just show the other riders without commentary inbetween, i dont know....

I think they do that at World Championships (show all riders but only commentary for top 20ish?) they definitely should do that, the hour break is annoying.

My bets:

1 Aaron Gwin 

2 Greg Minnaar 

3 Loris Vergier 

1 Myriam Nicole 

2 Tracey Hannah 

3 Manon Carpenter

Most likely Gwin will take it, but I think Brosnan has a chance. Maybe Loris.

Ha, should not have overlooked Mr. Steady, the Boss Greg Minaar. I am glad Remi is relatively alright after that ugly crash on the last jump. What's the deal with blown chains? Surely someone can get this problem sorted out.

That crash by Remi on the finishing job was horrific, glad it sounds like he will recover without surgery and no brain injury.

I had the right guys on top 3 but wrong order, doh. Entertaining race as always, I know there was lots of bitching about bike park track but the speed and jump scrubbing is pretty fun to watch. Impressive run by Tahnee, hoping to see some challengers to Rachel later this year.

How does Greg stay at the top without an energy drink sponsor? 

Did Dev from "Master of None" mimic some of his sound effects from Claudio?

At his age, maybe he could take on Ensure or Boost as a drink sponsor?

Hoping they let Danny ride a bike that fits him for the next race.
