You guessed right… we’re doing live commentary again! This time for downhill. Live updates from Saturday’s World Cup race late afternoon/early evening via the comments section of this story!
Keep scrolling down and join us #Gravity Bantz.
At the time of writing this article (late Friday afternoon) all were I [Benji] really know are the results of timed training. This is sometimes interesting, but rarely so enlightening.
But what do I know about downhill racing? I guess we’ll find out! I’ve reduced more than my fair share of Wet Screams over the years, so I’m at least interested in that. please be gentle with me
What I can say is Camille Balanche who broke her collarbone. Ouch. She will obviously not be there this race weekend, but when will she return? In time for the finals? Or is that something for the relative late starter/newbie? If so, then it will be between Myriam Nicole and Vali Höll again.
