Hill's crash was such a bummer!!! He was 5 sec faster in the last turn before the crash than Peaty was. If Hill finished Gee would only come 3 sec behind HIll. Those guys are crazy sick fast!!!!

Hill was about 10 seconds up when his front wheel washed out. He had to pick the bike up, get back on, get up to speed and still finished 0.5 seconds behind Steve Peat, he was 5 seconds up on Gee's split half way down ... Awesome rider but pushed a little too hard in that last corner, By far the fastest rider on that track, but like OP said, thats racing.

Hey Calidownhiller, if you want to get all patriotic about the US dude getting 24th, check out the women's, Kathy Pruitt in 7th, awesome result!!!!
Melissa Buhl got first in the 4x. No offense to women. It's always rad to see a sick female rider and probably all of those girls could spank most of us. It's just kind of anticlimactic watching the women racing. The vast majority of the field is slow. Then there's 3 or 4 on top that have 5,6,7,10 or more seconds between them. It's just not that entertaining to watch.

The men's DH on the other hand literally had my heart pounding the whole time Peat was on the podium. During his run I was screaming at my computer for him the pedal.

WOW so the Uk gets

1st 2nd Senior Men
1st Senior Women
1st 2nd Junior men

Amazing considering how its not really regarded as a sport it is here in the UK. We don't even have a Ski Chair Bike Uplift anywhere!

Phenomenal effort.

yet to see the Sam hill run but it looks like the stuff of legends.. hope Freecaster get it up soon

PS no mention of any of this on the BBC's cycling home page.. seems that unless it involves going uphill at some point its not considered cycling

Shame!
