Photohack’s Journal#5 – Last updates before the final


It’s the big day in Vallnord – DH Finals. Live coverage of runs will start here at 12:15 GMT and we’ll see just who has got the minerals to take home this weekend’s silverwear. Next time we update we’ll have a Rd3 World Cup winner. Good luck to all the UK guys!

Here’s Keith’s final update before it all kicks off… Anyone else just a wee bit nervous?


Syndicate team boss Kathy Sessler - I reckon she's probably a wee bit nervous

“So here it is. The biggy final day in the downhill. Firstly, the weather is colder today so gloves advisable, it may even rain which should make it interesting as every practice has been in the bone dry.

Where do I start? Well firstly can a big shout to Arran Gannicott – big day for him ahead as he is the first man down the slope at 2pm – meaning he can say he led the field for a bit ha ha! Fastest male and last up is Sam Hillin qualies. His 12 practice runs paid of yesterday. Gee, Peaty and Minnarr are before him. Nick beer had a stormer too.

Last to go for the women is Sabrina Jonnier with Tracy just before her due to a brush with a tree in qualifying. Katy Curd has a real chance for a podium spot too…

Predictions? mmm it’s gonna be close, let’s just wait n see!” bring it on

Scotty Beaumont - new shorts, new logo but a crash in 4X yesterday. Let's hope they fit him a bit better in today's DH.
