Whitestyle @ Leogang

Not too many big names heard the call this time. There are many theories, but maybe it’s because slopestyle mountain biking isn’t in the Olympics. If it was, it would probably be the best mountain bike event in the world… and sponsored by Carlsberg instead of Monster. I mean Red Bull… It’s that now. Nevermind, cycling on snow? What’s next, skiing on mud? Swimming in lava!? Base-jumping in space!?? Jesus. Well actually just to explode the non-secret, White Style is in fact conducted entirely on carpet. Why not ‘Carpet Style’?! Why do you think.

Feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme… it’s Rampage time.

Austrian Mountain Tetris
Triangles are my favorite shape, 3 points where 2 lines meet… Let’s tessellate - Alt J
This afternoon, blocks of riders came flowing down the hill and slotted neatly into place as if in a giant game of mountain tetris, for the final seeding run of the season. Some blocks fitted into place much better than others, most notably, an awkward Atherton octagon came to rest uneasily in third, while a star-shaped Smith settled nicely into top spot. Just 3 points now separate the pair in favor of the Canadian. Mick Hannah goes to bed feeling warm and fuzzy tonight, snuggling in between the two rivals, forming the ultimate man-wich at the top of the pile. Elsewhere, lady Atherton did the business once again, but with Ragot hot on her heels for a second time, under 2 seconds back…
