not really its pathetic…

no industry no money no nothing… thats why aussies go overseas to race…

Hmmpf

I thought they came over here to race cause they couldn't stand the heat of summer, and the lack of central heating in the winter….

Damn aussies coming over here and winning all the races. And flooding the ski hills with cheap labour…

Also the aussie season runs through the winter ie. October-March so some aussies run both. There are a lot of siblings in the brit racing so it can get confusing, also lots of the young riders are in the royal racing stable so get all the same kit which doesnt help things, but woo Brits

the other big name event on the weekend was the US open…

i like how they put it on the same weekend as a world cup so that most aussies wont be racing, and americans still didint win…

1. John Kirkaldie (NZ) - 2:48.193
2. Jared Rando (AUS) - 2:52.215
3. Geritt Beytagh (USA) - 2:52.409
4. Evan Turpen (USA) - 2:52.868
5. Luke Strobel (USA) - 2:53.852


6. Ameil Cavalier (AUS) - 2:54.589
9. Justin Havukainen (AUS) - 2:56.051
36. Joel Bain (AUS) - 3:04.443
37. Craig Woodhead (AUS) - 3:05.107

Actually the US Open is on the same weekend every year. It was a great time racing, Even though Kirkaldie beat me by a minute and a half:scream: And seeing Havukainen crash toward the end of the course was a bummer.

Before Sam Hill hit the scene in a big way, the Ozzies on this board were talking about him - that we should keep an eye on him. Great to see it happening.

Well for a casual observer it used to be difficult to understand whos who. The athertons in the same kit and same surname was a difficult one, even jill kinter's got confused at the bill on her right up of the 4-cross qualifiers,

yes ill claim that…

there has been 4 riders who grew up racing against each other in my local area. there has been 4 guys the same age it seems that one has discoverd alcohol so we shall forget about him. these are my picks for the next couple of years..

my new prediction to watch, let it be said right here and now, Joel Bain.

a 16 year old riding for cannondale / the cut in america… first season overseas… (recent results is 12th first norba and 36th in us open)

Ben Bell, a 16 year old riding for yeti in america. australian under 19 champ. (65th qualifier at us open)

mitchell delfs, a 16 year old riding for manitou / shimano in america… when hes on it, can corner like sam… qualified 67th at the us open

these 3 names have the skills to be dominent in racing downhill in the future…
