    Gilles was the only one who did this part of the section without a dab. You couldn't put your rear tyre on the logs left and right. Gilles jumped onto the first log and immediately went to rear wheel, in one move, that was so fast, you could hardly follow how he did it. That was definately one of the best moves I've ever seen. All other riders made a dab, which was pretty hard, too

    it was Gilles....he made it on the bash once but then slipped somewhere else in the section and fived it. But he tried it at least! Dani Comas or Benito went into the section and put down both foot to get a 5, that's poor.

    Thanks for the photos Chris!

    What sort of cranks is Gilles running? They look rather thin.

    Also did you see JVS or a guy called Andrew Dickey ride? If so, how did they go? In terms of riding, not neccessarily score.

    I saw Jeremy riding the semi final sections, but only one section - which he fived. The semi final sections were all natural. Classical 26" sections, mostly slippery rocks in a river bed.. you had to ride through water several times - so no chance without a grinded rim.. Especially on the sunday finals. It rained like shit. But they all rode the wooden stuff, like it was sunny and dry.. no fear at all :D
    Vincent was pretty sad at the end.. I was next to him and he was crying. Would have been awesome if he won both world titles, uci and biu.

    he's only at the beginning of his career, he's got that whole consistency thing to work out. How you judge who is the "best rider" is very personal but I think Vincent will be remembered as one of the best of this period, whenever it may end.

    There is a discussion going on on the german trials forum about Gilles..I thought I let you know know what it's all about. There are rumours that Gilles has been thrown out ouf the Coust Team, because of his bad habits, alcohol, drugs etc. He's doing kind of his own thing now, different stickers, he came to Les Gets alone, together with his girlfriend. Giaco came with his father.
    Gilles messed up the finals mainly because he showed his middle finger to one of the judges, who saw a little dab or whatever. Gilles obviously didn't want to accept it. That meant 10 extra points for Gilles!

    i was wondering if he lost his temper- i couldnt think of another reason he would get those penalty points.
