On a four and half minute run, 1.2 seconds separate 2nd through 5th. That's amazing.

He's definitely coming of age - I'd put money on him.

also interesting that he was running high rollers for that race (he's sponsered by kenda).

rad to see cedric on the dh podium again! maybe the new team has instilled a bit of discipline…

The winning time was around 4.5 minutes, and Peat was off by a second or so. The top 5 were all just a few seconds apart.

At their level of riding, the various high end bikes probably don't make a whole lot of difference.
