Let us know who you think is going to win the 2017 downhill World Championships

Take your pick, ladies and gentlemen! The 2017 World Championships is here and we’d love to find out who you think is going to take the win in both the men’s and women’s races. So, put your virtual money where your virtual mouths are and vote for your favourites to win.


Ed’s wager
“I think Loïc Bruni is going to take the rainbow stripes in Cairns. He’s previously won there and hasn’t won any World Cups this year. He’ll be chomping at the bit for a win so gets my vote!”
“Tahnée Seagrave has been on form all year and has won three World Cups. She’s clearly got the pace, let’s hope she can stay on her bike!”

Alex’s wager
“As much as I’d love to back a UK rider, I think Gwin is destined to do it this year. He’s got the skills, the confidence and the fitness to take him to victory. Oh, and he’s already won the World Cup overall, so it’s about time he got the rainbow stripes!”


“Like, Ed, I reckon Tahnée is going to win the women’s race. She’s had a cracking season and everything seems to be clicking for her. Fingers crossed!”
