Kym got dored the night before the final. Dagga smashed in to some dude in the qualifier and broke her fork in to 4 peaces. They both still raced hard.
Angry Drew and Crihs both represented hard and raced well.
The main race went off with periods of heavy rain. Most of the top ten finished as it was raining sideways.”
Here is a report back from Buffalo Bill of Moving Target Zine, UK.
Much more on all that went on in Toronto as pictures and stories get posted.
Sino won’t have far to go next year for the worlds since it will be in his backyard.
