Was about to reply to this to mention Billy and Jim, think Hamish is meant to be there too.

If those 4 men are all out of the BBCs, then the finals spots are wide open

Itís a bit shit when all the heads are away as whoever wins has to carry an asterisk over their title.

Well I was wrong about Max, not sure if he's at The BBCs but he's not on the start list in Chamonix.

I don't think any of the "heads" are away? Molly has never been our best comp boulderer, i doubt Shauna is any more either, and Alex and Max were by a distance the best of the brits in SLC.

Jim just put on IG that he's injured his knee so isn't in Switzerland either.

Can't find a competition start list to work out the "heads", but here is the list the BMC put on their website of contenders:

Holly Toothill
Jennifer Wood
Frances Bensley
Emily Phillips
Leanora Volpe
Maya Patel

Nathan Phillips
Max Milne
Toby Roberts
Louis Parkinson
Alex Waterhouse
Matt Cousins

Pretty strong bunch, not sure there's a need for an asterisk this year

Yeah youíre right, to be honest Iím just ruffling feathers and throwing comments into the ether. Line-up looks good.

I stand corrected.

Donít say it, donít say it..

looks Like Billy Ridal is at the BBCs too, despite showing on the start list in Chamonix.

Just watched the finals on catch-up, given it's the only significant sport on today. Good fun, cool variety of problems, a bit of imbalance between M and F but still a good show overall, nice commentary too (compared to IFSC / Matt Groom pandering to the great unwashed). Cheers BMC and all involved  :2thumbsup:

Right at the end of the finals there is a telling 'outtake snippet indicating how knackering a weekend of full on work can be. Great job team BMC, both at the BBCs and the less glamourous work in the main SHAFF festival. Thanks also to Matt and  the SHAFF team. It wasn't normal but it was a breath of fresh air to make a step back towards normality.
