and it was a 7-year old record, not one that gets broken every season...

 

by the way, Kramer was also in the team that previously held the record...

Oh well, these lame dodos that they call commentators barely even noticed Leerdam's time was actually quite good (only slightly above the WR)...instead, they said it was "at least a new NR" :lol:

Wow, Jutta (pronounced 'Utah' basically) wins gold in Utah. Not the biggest fan in the world of these athletes who like themselves a little too much or at least come across like that, but she is a phenomenal rider :bowdown:

 

Whatever gave you that idea? :yikes:

Her interviews on Dutch TV basically :p 

 

I'm sure she's not a 'not nice person' or something, don't get me wrong, she just doesn't strike me with a vibe that makes me a fan :p

with :JPN Miho Takagi not even on the podium, beaten by 2 Russians (Lalenkova and Kazelina)...

:RUS Yuskov can't overtake :USA Mantia...

 

however, both are well above (about 2 seconds) the world (& track) record held by :NEDNuis...

 

so, I think the race is still open...

Why on earth did Roest waste his effort right there...?

 

Not that he would have made the podium. He peaked in October.

Damn, after being destroyed in the 5 and 10k, Roest now gets screwed by Oda's fall and then still goes on to ride 26.1 - 26.2 - 26.9 :yikes: That's insane

Because going for a reskate makes no sense anymore with the already wasted effort and after his shitty 5 and 10 k, he might have wanted to get some confidence towards the upcoming world championships.

the worst :NED Roest since quite a long time...

 

:JPN Oda was flying in his second lap, but crashed badly off the curve entering the "home" straight...:facepalm: (at least, he's not injured)...
