    I've read that the audio was off for some. It was on for me for what it's worth.

    Great race!

    Only 1 euro male on the podium (granted, it was on the top spot). Not sure when the last time that happened was. Cool to see Luca back on form and Dak killing it with the ape hangers.

    Audio worked fine for me too. Decent coverage overall.

    Can't say I'm a fan of this new salary system on fantasy. I get decent points with Vali and she goes way up in price I can't afford her anymore so they remove her from my team. $1mil cost when the salary cap is $1.5mil? Silly

    I think dynamic pricing itself is a good idea. The scale are using is crazy though. You have to build a team with people that will never score any points, that's not very fun.

    Yea, PB Fantasy is a bust. Pretty dumb.
    Stoked for Dak. The dude slayed it out there. Seems to be super solid on that ride.
    Coverage was hit or miss. What's the point of trimming the field down to 30 if they still don't show complete runs for the first half of the field? And the fucking split scree interviews during race runs! If I was a rider like Martin Maes, I'd be pretty well pissed after making it to the final only to see them interview Reece for the entire second half of Martin's run.
    I still can't stand Ric. He's like a pull cord doll repeating the same shit over and over. It's not informative when he tell's us "_____ would really like to get a win here today". No shit fuckker, so does everyone. Sounds like an industry shill the way he kept repeating "Rockshox Flight Attendant."
    However many are in a shit ton.

    Yup Ric is irritating, reaching nails on a chalkboard soon i think. He keeps talking over Aaron, Tahnee and Pompon with nonsensense.
    The link someone put up in tge pb comments worked well and saved the day. What a shit show for a lot of Euros that went to tune in only to find out eurosport werent doing a live show, just a recap. You'd think UCI could let those countries know so they could try and make alternative plans to get the live feed. Actually why would they even give a provider a contract without insisting they provide a live feed. Such a shame. The racing is so good. Every category is tight racing and multiple storylines. Juniors were a great watch. Erice was looking to create a Sam Hill moment. I cant wait to see her in Poland. Her and Asa were visibly quicker ahead of the suoer tight field

    While I'd like to see a slightly higher budget, If everyone just picked Loic and Vali, it wouldn't be too fun either.

    Agreed, but as it is you can't pick anyone that finished in the top 5 while also expecting to score with the rest of your team.

    Not a lot of tunraround to get everyone on bikes, its not like these are just sitting in a warehouse ready to go. What a shitty deal.

    There's got to be a better way of covering the EWS (I refuse to call it EDR) than real-time spreadsheet updates on Pinkbike, right? I know at this point they just don't give a fuck, but I have to imagine the bike companies that are sponsoring all these riders have to be making a bit of noise...

    My thought is to present a VERY brief synopsis of the first stages, then line the riders up for the final stage in reverse order just like a DH. Cover and film the last stage so that it’s fucking interesting and compelling in real time. And PLEASE don’t just show 80 riders going though one section of track. It’s like locking a kid in a closet with a box of cigars after catching him smoking.

    I'm fine with enduro only getting covered with a good highlights video. Half the point of enduro is that the races can go to cool locations, and cool locations are rarely conducive to setting up big cameras all over the place and running miles of wires so that a live stream can happen.

    While I agree with you in principle, right now what they're doing is the worst of both: shitty coverage in the same European locations over and over again (often at bike parks), condensed down to 1 day and much less actual pedaling. So it's basically multi-stage DH without any coverage.

    Yeah - what they're currently doing is fairly terrible. But ~5 years ago when enduro was actually good, there still wasn't really any live coverage. I think all of the sacrifices they've made to the courses has been in pursuit of better coverage, but the coverage still sucks. I'd rather they went back to good courses and commit to only providing posthumous coverage, with maybe some nominal snippets during the race.

    The old courses had a lot of memorable moments. Actual loam ripping corners. The vids come out in a day or 2 and maybe eventually they could have better live footy. Finale is no doubt a great place to ride but loose tacky dirt amongst a sub tropical forest or alpine meadows and screescape surrounded by peaks beats that for the visual trail setting everytime

    Pan Am Thoughts. Blevins and Batten are noticeably faster than the rest of the field. Quite a few of the younger ages had strong rep from South America. It will be interesting to see how that plays out over the next ten years. I know from coaching youth sports, some of those kids mature sooner, but will they maintain? Yes, sweeping generalization there.
    Anyway. Very cool to see so much bike love in Heber.

    New tracks for EDR (eww) and DHi this weekend.

    It'll be super cool to see the difference between the preview and the event track for the DH.

    EDR is a dumb name.
    It’ll always be EWS.
    Everyone agrees and it’s just one more minor thing they’re doing to fuck it all up.

    Dak on top for semis!

    A bit of mud seems to be making a mostly uninteresting track more interesting.
