This time it was very difficult to award the prize to the best prediction for the race Val di Sole. The very technical track has created a podium in the unexpected. On all dominated once again Aaron Gwin. Unexpectedly off the podium Greg Lover. Steve Smith, evidence that the days of traveling on the path to levels Hill in 2009, did not start due to an injury suffered during practice on Sunday morning. The rocks, gradients and the roots did the rest. On routes such as Commezzadura the surprises never fail (think the victory last year Beaumont). So we found a Heart he touched his first Cup victory by elite. An incredible Brosnan arrived 4 the junior and Cole on the podium in fifth place. The beauty of tracks like this is that there are no rulers discounted. Do not you ride, or at least very little, and everything is entrusted to handle. Nothing better to match the level of the riders and watch a race memorable.
But back to your predictions. To award the prize we have followed a very simple criterion. Meanwhile, we have chosen only the weather that gave Gwin winning, but as you can imagine not a few were. None of these predictions gave Heart as the second. Only three of the predictions that gave Gwin included winning Heart as the third and precisely these are the forecasts Mauro Michelutti (Gwin, Minaar, Heart, Atherton, Smith), of Playmtb (Gwin, Smith, Heart, Atheron, Peat) and Matthias (Gwin, Beaumont, Heart, Lover, Macdonald).
Only two of these three predictions, those Mauro Michelutti and Playmtb, are also in Atherton, and in both cases the right just after Heart fourth. At this point we have chosen to proceed in this way. Of the two forecasts, far closer to the final result according to the criteria chosen, we took the runner-up, both wrong, and we decided to focus on the forecast with the runner who had made the best race result. Since the forecast Playmtb second is Smith which is not party (shame about the injury because it might have been successful prediction), we decided to award the prize to the prediction of Mauro Michelutti (Gwin, Minaar, Heart, Atherton, Smith).
The mechanism is a little 'complicated but we hope to be able to explain it for good. We hope that Champery someone slip on at least the first three which saves a lot of work. Do not forget that Switzerland also run him.
While waiting for a wish to the winner of the World Tri-Ride World Cup Contest of Val di Sole, Mauro Michelutti that thanks to Bluegrass wins a beautiful fullface Brave Green Waves and Bold Eagleman when dirt / freeride.
P.S. the graphics of helmets may vary depending on availability and the size required by the winner.
