World Champs 2010 This Weekend - Mont St. Anne Vids

One race to decide who gets to wear the rainbow stripes for 2011. Will it be a rePeat? Or will Gee and Greg continue to battle it out? My hope is that this will be Steve Smith's big breakthrough?

A couple of vids here tell the story thus far here...

I want Peaty to retain his title (especially seeing how he had it in the bag at the WC last week until his crash - on top form!), and I guess I like the old guys (girls). I love the fact that Leigh Donovan is there, ready to race. She has a sticker on her butt making fun of her old nickname, that says "old booty". Humour, class and a kickass history. She brought her daughter to the opening ceremony and they came out waving flags so happy and my mama self got all teary! Gee, Greg oh its going to be so exciting!

Looks bone dry too. So excited. I wish a local pub or bike shop would hold a screening on a big tv, its kind of sad I'll be watching it with my two year old, who I'm pretty sure won't appreciate it.

Great vids to get the buzz on. I'll go with Gee. Such a solid season. I'm sure it'll be close.

I really hope Peat repeats. I cried when he won last year. Two years in a row after all those second places would be amazing.

can someone confirm this (because it would be awesome if true): uci is asking all racers to run a helmet cam on their runs. but if you don't want to, you can use a slug of some kind - steve peat is apparently going to be attaching a can of budweiser to his v10 to serve as his slug, with the added benefit of keeping the extra weight lower (and reinforcing his rep as the coolest cat on the circuit)

Anyone know what's up with Stevie Smith?
Saw on PB that he was running second in yesterday's timed run but had a bad crash towards the bottom.

Get over it. Slavik beat Graves fair and square. Graves was way too slow through the inside rock garden line.

Oh and it's Czech.

He was trying to 'win' timed practice. That's what's up with him.
