Pulling for Maes to take the win. Racing the EWS with the WC DH stripes

As funny as it would be for Maes to win, I'm rooting for MacDonald. Dude had the first race and after seeing him break the ground and then ride down with a broken collarbone....savage.
Pierron would be epic as well. Though looks like he took a big crash too.
Or Luca Shaw. After a bunch of close ones, dude go get it!
And at the back of my mind, though I know the chances are slim, if Finn Illes could grab it, that'd be pretty swell as well.
I would love Maes to win, but I think Loic has this one.
Maes qualified forth and apparently lost his chain halfway through his run.
What country are you from if I may ask?
No custom Worlds bike for Rachel? Kade has nice custom Trek but Rachel is riding her old bike...
Imagine if Maes and Ravanel won their respective titles. DH purists would burn Lenzerheide to the ground.
rumor mill has athertons leaving trek. not giving rach a custom bike does seem petty tho. also noticed gee wearing an atherton racing tee rather than the usual trek factory racing garb in his preview.
they saw Gwin's new house and McLaren on teh facegramz and decided their Fam wanted to really start getting PAID YO!
Maes is a beast. And still young too.
Where’s the course preview pov?
Hidge yir bits
Hopefully they go to Specialized. It would really open up the Women's racing if Rachel suddenly couldn't break the top 5
I think it’s rad that Seagrave is pulling a lot closer on a consistent basis.
That season where Atherton literally won everything (usually by big margins) made the racing less interesting, even though it’s cemented her as legend status IMO.
No POV, but here's Gee:
And no commentary, but here's Rachel's POV:
Missing his insight already .
^^^ This. Doesn't appear to be anything on the yootoobz either.
My guess is different media rules for world's?
No track walk vids, and athertovision with crappy rock music instead of cathrovision...
I’m confused why UCI would think a media blackout is a good thing for World Champs.
I know, I know...
Anyone wanna talk about gwins TRP derailleur?
As crappy as his brakes?
Y'all MURICA people's should turn on the women's xc race...
Freedom eagles are flying today!!!! Wooooo congrats.
I assumed Jolanda Neff would take women's XC. NOPE!
KATE COURTNEY! Woo Hoo go girl!
They say it was the first USA woman's world champ since 2001, which I assume was Julie Furtado?
quick @Gary, someone is talking about CROSS COUNTRY
can't find the schedule ... when is the DH finals broadcast?
Before @Gary comes I would like to file the report that Nino won again.
Tomorrow. Like 4am ish our time. Use their app. Set up a reminder. Easy peasy.
That venue seems perfect. At least what i saw for xc. So many fans lining the course pretty much the entire course, some like 6 people deep, maybe more. And the finishing arena. So good. No way a Vail venue could match that kind of spectator friendly set up. The terrain just doesn't exist. Well done Lenzerheide.
Who is broadcasting the races in the US? Looking for the xco replay
isn't that on redbull tv?
Found it. For some reason not listed under the bike channel yet.
The reason there's no Cathro this time around is because he couldn't/wouldn't spend 800 eurodollars on the media rights from the UCI. Very understandable, to be honest.
Honestly, if he had put out a Kickstarter or something to raise the funds I'm sure he could have gotten it no problem
I thought Furtado as well, but from the 90s. 2001 was Alison Dunlap.
Not Furtado - she was done racing well before then anyway. Contracted some virus (lupus?) and left. And teams got tired of her aggressively propositioning the female racers and staff.
Propositioning? You mean what we'd call sexual harassment if it was done by a dude?
Cathro has a Patreon that's pretty successful given the narrow scope of the material. On his Instagram he said he made the decision earlier this year, probably before his Patreon took off.
