    I don't use airplay but I did redbull app on ipad --> TV. No issues with the feed stopping but it seemed low bandwidth with poor quality. So I switched to redbull website on laptop --> TV and that worked better.

    PMB I attempted this with my iphone, but the redbull App wasn't working. Hopefully it does for FT. BILL this time around!

    I have an apple HDMI cable that I run to my tv that works pretty well. We stream our netflix movies this way, and it'll stay running for the whole movie. It could be that the cord allows the power supply to be connected at the same time? Maybe try that with your ipad?

    I think it might have something to do with the ipad "sleeping" or something like that after a few minutes. I would get everything running on the ipad with the picture sent via wifi to the TV then hit the top button on the ipad to turn the screen off, sit it down on the coffee table and a couple minutes later the video would stop on the TV and I'd have to turn the ipad back on and hit play button on the RB app.

    I know I'm being a little bitchy, I should just be happy I'm getting to watch Live WC coverage on my TV.

    Is there anyway we can talk about his upper body physique? I really like insightful discussions about young guy's arms (if only every WC racer adopted the Lopes disdain for shirts- sigh).

    It was p*ssing down for a good chunk of the day here today, Ft.Bill's usually a good bit wetter so i'd be surprised if they weren't pretty wet yet!

    Then in some order will be,
    Hill
    Gee
    Cole

    I'm curious as to what minnar will say when Gwin beats him by 5+ seconds on a track where minnar is comfortable and able to push the pace.

    Massive improvement to the motorway section. Honestly quite surprised it took them this many years to "fix" it proper like that.

    Should be good for racing as there have always been a few guys who crush the top splits but lose a couple seconds in the old motorway sprint (Sam and Danny to name a few).

    The bottom will still reward the strong and fit, but at least it will be less about sheer horsepower now.

    as much as dislocated fingers are uncomfortable, if taped up they aren't too bad to ride with...I did a gnarly number on my ring finger a couple years ago and after a couple days was still pounding out bike park laps.....come on stevie, smash it up sunday!

    sweet thanks. what strikes me about Fraser's photos is that in contrast to the trackwalk at VDS, there's no one there! VDS seemed crazy busy with people everywhere.... maybe Fort Bill is such a long track that people get spread out really thin....

    Tracy Hannah didn't bother to do a timed run? I don't see her on the list. I'd need to change my Fantasy Team if she's not competing for whatever reason...

    Some folks opt not to do timed training. She is on the start list.

    There's no question Gwin is on a different level, but Minnaar always seems to elevate his "game" to match the next level, so I wouldn't I count him out just yet.

    I think it was easier for them to spread out since they didn't need to rope in and rappel any of the course.

    Top speeds are pretty interesting, Hart had fastest time with only 60 kph. Fastest trap speed was 72 kph, so we can be sure times will fall.
