I did and I was so impressed with the French rider, she was really smooth the whole way round. I liked the track and would love to ride it but not do any leaping off rocks lol.

Might see the men's tomorrow not sure or get my folks to tape it.

All credit to the German girl as well coming second after that nasty tumble tho did she block the other rider on purpose?

Your right, Julie Bresset did brilliant, especially to beat Spitz in second who won in Beijing. If the womens event was anything to go by the mens will be brilliant.

Your right about Spitz tumble too, going over the handlebars like that and jumping back on to finish second...now thats what I call determination.

After watching my Olympic planner religiously the mens race came and what a race it was too! A sprint finish between Kulhavy and Schurter, with Kulhavy the winner....damn it was a great one.
