The last Crashed Event was different - an indoor track, supremely short and fast - and we saw a lot of the top names going out early, allowing some new faces through to the fore. In Lausanne, it looks like we are back to the norm, a longer track that looks like one of the hardest we have seen so far. The Croxall brothers are likely to be back on form, whilst keep an eye on the motivated Derek Wedge as he tries to repeat his victory.

  • Janna02/03/2013 at 17:08

    I like that there's some skating at the start as well as fast downhill stuff

  • Mr C02/03/2013 at 17:09

    this could already be the best course ever. just need a few close finishes and they're on to something amazing.

  • Mr C02/03/2013 at 17:09

    "the best ice they've been on this season"

  • Mr C02/03/2013 at 17:09

    curved scaffolding? how?

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:10

    "the best ice they've been on this season"

    They may just be thinking that because they're coming off the worst!

  • Mr C02/03/2013 at 17:12

    place is heaving.

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:13

    That start is so tough! The guy fell before he even got going.

  • Chris02/03/2013 at 17:13

    Ouch! Someone fell on the first jump!

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:13

    He took him down!

  • Chris02/03/2013 at 17:14

    Nice move from the orange guy!

  • Mr C02/03/2013 at 17:14

    proper forward roll, onto ice. yeoooooow.

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:14

    Wouldn't much fancy going headfirst down that hill, lucky he turned it into a roll!

  • Janna02/03/2013 at 17:15

    They're talking about the wedge and I keep looking for Derek

  • Mr C02/03/2013 at 17:15

    my money's on yutes and mator

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:15

    They're talking about the wedge and I keep looking for Derek

    Hope he does super well again this week, and that it wasn't just because of the different course.

  • Mr C02/03/2013 at 17:16

    best finish :)

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:17

    Mr C predictioning well so far.

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:18

    SCOTT!

  • Mr C02/03/2013 at 17:18

    ummm

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:18

    Commentator totally jinxed that. Not good.

  • Chris02/03/2013 at 17:18

    Commentator's curse?

  • Mr C02/03/2013 at 17:19

    WHAT?A?

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:19

    He must have barged that?

  • Janna02/03/2013 at 17:19

    Stewards decision

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:19

    He's so controversial, my Scotty. Tut tut.

  • Mr C02/03/2013 at 17:20

    love this long course, nice that people have some chance to come back.

  • Chris02/03/2013 at 17:20

    Looks like a fine move to me. Close though

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:20

    Glad he had a hair cut. Concerned that I know that.

  • Mr C02/03/2013 at 17:21

    did they jump the gate or something? why the DQ?

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:21

    R2!!

  • Mr C02/03/2013 at 17:22

    he's... almost BACK!

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:22

    Oh, he's not there. He was skating this weekend though. That's progress.

  • Mr C02/03/2013 at 17:23

    ahh, feed failure.

  • Mr C02/03/2013 at 17:24

    You want to send an F1 car down there!? It wouldn't make the first jump!

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:34

    Klinntrup is gone!

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:36

    That one almost didn't make it up over the hill. Awkward if you end up sliding back to the start!

  • Janna02/03/2013 at 17:37

    That looked like it hurt

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:38

    Wedge!

    Photo finish

  • Chris02/03/2013 at 17:39

    I think Wedge has proved last time wasn't a one off :)

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:39

    Is that our first photo finish?

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:40

    The other Croxall.

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:41

    Croxall taking it easy here.

  • Janna02/03/2013 at 17:41

    This feels relaxed compared to other heats

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:42

    This feels relaxed compared to other heats

    Two much better than the others.

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:43

    Tough round for Wedge next time.

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 17:49

    Wedge jumped from sixth to second place in the standings last time. That's amazing.

  • Mr C02/03/2013 at 17:50

    Massive jump there! I thought he was going out of the course!

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 18:07

    That was amazing! Did he do that on purpose??

  • Christine02/03/2013 at 18:10

    This is the tough one. Croxall, Wedge, di Paoli.

  • Mr C02/03/2013 at 18:35

    only 40k fans. low by crashed ice standards.
