World Championship DH Video

Go to www.ucilive.com > watch highlights now > mens eliite downhill

There's some trials at the end too.

Special congrats to girlscout13's hero, Cane Creek rider Christopher Herndon of North Carolina, who finished 29th in his first world championship riding, you guessed it, an SX Trail.

Thanks for the link, Gastro! Ahh, I needed that bit o' inspiration. Pedal, pedal, pedal! Wow, watching Hill laying it down . . . easy to forget to keep spinning those cranks sometimes.

Thank you again! Great vid. You guys all play nice on the Forums while I'm gone - Off for Sun Peaks tomorrow to rep the USA (God help us all!) this weekend at the Masters Worlds. No medal dreams; just want to compete honorably and enjoy the racing.

Best of luck at Worlds man.

Happy to help with the inspiration - it's probably the best coverage I've seen of a WC race, plenty of cameras so you can compare everyone's lines and techniques.

Good luck at the worlds man.

Screw placing. The fact that you're good enough to be there, that alone is very impressive in my book.

I don't mind if he wants to copy me.
