    Willow gets third in World Championships

    Watching the Worlds live on freecasterTV...

    Awesome to watch live. I'm not gonna bother to stay up and watch the men though.

    Yeah, she was on a 29'er.

    Congrats to Willow, sweet to watch one of our former locals finish that well.

    Just got the e-mail from Steve Johnson, USAC pres, trumpeting Willow's bronze, so naturally I logged on here to see the 29er talk.

    Great to see a top result from Willow, and on a 29er no less. Irminger in 10th. Compton 14th (Compton's on a 29er- was Irminger on hers too?), Gould 15th.

    LMN's wife in 6th, beaten by a 29er at the most important race of the season. Can't wait to see where THIS thread goes.

    Well, hopefully this thread goes to show that 29"ers are a serious pro level tool to win races on.

    Most interesting that these results are being gotten by women who are "too small for a 29"er". That is particularly interesting to me. I also feel there is another angle to the 29"ers and women story that has to do with stability and confidence in downhills that maybe doesn't translate to the men's side so much. (This from an interview with Heather Irminger and talking with some other 29"er riding women)

    Anyway, congrats to Willow.

    Fisher/Subaru is making some waves on 29"ers in the pro ranks this year. Crazy!

    Wicked ride by Willow. Not really surprising though. After watching her ride at the last couple of World Cups, it was obvious she had the form. Combine good form with a course that suits her skill set really well (with all those years in Whistler few are as good at technical climbs as her) and you get a wicked ride. (You have to wonder if Willow had been able to clear Sabine earlier if the silver or gold would have been in reach)

    A decent ride by Catharine, but not her best, technical climbing is something she needs to work on.

    Good to see the three main types of race bike on the podium (26inch hardtain, 26in dually, and 29er).

    I was just going to defend you but you defended yourself first! You gave Willow props a few weeks ago and I was going to mention that. I was hoping for Catharine to take the gold, but great job anyway.

    No need for that. Everything was meant in good humour.

    Both myself and Catharine were both excited for Willow. Two years ago she was on fire and then had real problems last year. It is great to see her comeback and ride so strong.

    Switching to the 29er the right choice for Willow. The bike is just about two pounds lighter then her 26er.

    BTW if all XC courses become like the Worlds course you are going to see some changes to the convential XC bike, larger wheels being one possible opitions.

    The course looked awesome. I'm just watching the recap (w/o sound?) ; I loved how there was a easy route or a shorter, harder route. I doubt the woman who took the easy route and collided with someone coming down the hard route feels the same.

    I've got to ask since your wife rides for Luna, why are they all using LUST (UST tires)? They are considerably heavier and require more wattage to power at speed. Granted, the ride is better than say a Stans'd clincher but the weight is not easily overlooked.

    Thanks for the link, Dicko. Can you believe they don't live broadcast this on Aussie tv?

    Although considering we blitzed the 4X titles, maybe we'll actually get some coverage.

    Hey all- Still in Oz here, but wanted to say thanks to all the well wishers. I will pass them on to Willow.

    First off, she was fantastic. She said it- she was going for the gold! She could definatly taste it. On the last descent with one lap to go, she was 10 seconds out of first behind Lene. Willow used Sabine to a "t" making the German pull her through the headwind sections then taking the lead on the tech sections. The Russian was too fast though and killed the last lap for sure- she was the deserving Champ and a sweety at that she told Willow to "get on and lets catch Lene" as she passed her- hats off to Irina. I am so proud of Willow and Heather too (her best World's finish as well).

    I have to say, I am usually a nervous mess in the tech zones, but not yesterday. I was so calm I actually thought something was wrong with me, but then realized nothing was going to go wrong with Willow's ride. Heather even flatted on the first lap- not her fault really as she was pushed off line and ran over a huge sharp rock. She was cool as a cucumber and I swear the wheel change was like those funny dreams you have like every thing is in slow motion with no sound, but as soon as the wheel was changed all sound, motion and speed came right back. It was really cool and surreal at the same time.

    Photos are from Rob Jones. I will post mine up when I get them down loaded.

    Cheers Mates! Off to do some more drinkin!

    I forgot to say, the course was AWESOME!!! I got 3 laps in myself out there. It was a very different course for sure. It did not favor any one type of bike that is for sure. It was such a mental mind game on the climbs- very steep with boulders to climb over and narrow. Descents were wicked with rock faces, ditch jumps and 3 foot huck drops at high speed. Mix that with a pump track down hill towards the end and a long fire road climb in the middle it makes for a super fun and challenging course. Hardpack with gravel, boulders and sand- it was like riding at home for me (Colorado).

    Those Aussies did a great job Cheers to all of ya! A big shout out to the guys and gals at Canberra's Bike Culture shop and a thanks to the fella's at Trek Australia too. Ya want to talk 29 fanatics? Look those bloks up.

    Cheers all

    Good question. No doubt the wheel weight is a bit penality. But there are some advantages; tougher tires, means less flats and most importantly it allows lower pressure, which improves rolling resistence, grip, ride, ect..... When Catharine first started riding with them it was a concern for her. After a year of riding tubeless tires she will probably never go back to convetional tires converted.

    Look at it this way a tubeless tire provides some of the same advantages and disadvantages of 29er over a 26er with conventional tires. It is just another approach to problem of making a bike fast, light, and durable.

    If the wheel inertia really made a significant difference then there would be no talk of racing 29ers.

    Heavier wheel of the same size is much different than heavier wheel of bigger size. Just my 0.02$

    to think there are several other awesome riding destinations within a few km's of the worlds course too ! Some might argue, better riding :-) Canberra is a great place to ride, the course is technical, fast, flowy, and rewarding the better technical skills.

    From a spectator point of view, how does one provide for more passing opportunities to enable the cream to ride to the top ?

    However, How do you get up cardiac with a 36t only, up front ? (Absalon only ran one ring)

    Looking at the mens results it did favor 26"HT for sure. (Not to play the devils advocate).
    #1-7 on 26" HT(?).

    I think you will find it suited the 7 riders who were best at riding the conditions put in front of them.

    I hate to use the word, but the course was hella cool.

    I thought LUST stood for Lightweight Ultimate Sidewall Technology.
    I think this is short for less rubber in the sidewalls for a lighter tyre. Guys I know running them say they tear pretty easy.
    Being an Aussie local it was pretty awesome to watch the Worlds live!

    The racing in both the mens and womens XC was awesome and I enjoyed every minute of it. It was also great to see Willow do so well on her 29er too. She had great form leading into the Worlds and the rewards were well deserved.

    It's been interesting hearing overseas people's perception of the course and venue too, nearly all of it positive, which is pretty cool.

    There were a few 29er riders in attendence, most notably Willow, JHK and Todd Wells. I noticed there were a few Japanese riders on Superfly's too...

    Here are a couple of pics I took of Willow (among others)

    I'm just considering moving to a 29er. @ 165cm I'd like to know what size frame does Willow ride?
    I was just before the tech zone. One of the USA girls rolled a rock drop off on her 29er when she realized that wasn't the line she wanted. A 26er would have OTB'd!

    I'm 5' 6" and i ride a small superfly - fits me perfectly. The biggest advantage i find is way more down hill stability and [roll-on] power that just feels smooth smooth. i have a 105 mm stem on with k-force flat bars. Feels awesome. I don't get the whole - wide big sweep - bars they put on 29ers.

    Willow runs a stock small frame with a 75mm 25^ down stem. Fits her nicely.

    That is untrue both trivially, people will say the most ridiculous things, and nontrivially, disadvantages can be offset by advantages. It is a frequent claim in cycling that angular momentum has no downside since those who see value in heavier wheels/tires are simply in denial over it. Interestingly, common 29er hype has it that greater angular momentum is an inherent advantage of the format. Roadies who argue for heavy wheels claim that they help maintain a faster, smoother pace. There's no end to stupidity.

    It is an acronym for Maxxis version of UST certified tires.

    I thought Willow was riding a small FS, either the SuperFly or one of the HiFi's??

    I thought I read on her site somewhere that she rides a XS she's about 5' 2".

    That's 26". Small 29" seems to work out well enough for her :-)

    Cool. What's that rear tire she's running? Almost looks like the tread of a Furious Fred.

    Willow rode a Superfly HT at the Worlds. I suspect she would be riding a Superfly 100 if she chose an FS...

    Hey Bruce- She runs a 29-3 2.0 front and XR1 rear most of the time. That is what she ran at Worlds too.

    FS bikes she rode a Procal this year, but never raced it. Superfly 100 is too big for her and she loves her ht 29 so much, she probably will not touch one anyway. I built her a 26" HiFi for Ashland SD (1st place) and Downieville that was pretty cool. Size small on all those as well as a size small 26 ht (not an XS)
