Results: World Cup DH Lourdes 2015 - Finals
Thats how it used to be, and while it was fun, it gets a bit tiring to watch. Rob would often comment on how he didnt have info on the 80-40 guys and didnt want to use up his good lines and energy too early. There was also the issue that earlier on in the day, there are 2-3 riders on the track at once, so sometimes top riders who qualified poorly could be missed anyway. It is definitely a better show now in my opinion, but it is always a bit anti-climactic when a top seed qualifies poorly and lays down a winning run early.

It would be nice to see a few more riders in both womens and mens for sure, but on the other hand the "show" was way better edited than previous years. I think Red Bull did a fantastic job with the live highlights, awesome coverage of nearly the entire course, with very few riderless shots, the quick recap of the parts we missed off air were awesome, inlcuding the current hot set run, etc. The have a show that they could pretty much sell to a TV station now if they wanted. Overall, I think it is good for the sport. *obviously it was a shame that we missed most of the winning run, but the results in qualis and the final were all over the place!

Welcome to the Jungle - Enduro World Series, Round 1 - Rotorua
"Mexicans as a race aren't shy of a bit of hard work either, so when it came time to build trails that work ethic has meant a sprawling labyrinth of trails that you could get lost in for days." Still looks like a compliment to me, still don't see even a hint of racism...

Adidas Evil Eye Evo Pro - First Look
Yeah I cant believe there has not been a big push for such a google. I tried these on the other day and they would be perfect under a small helmet: http://www.decathlon.fr/karakoram-id_8319719.html They would need to be a clear(er) lens to work however.

Pinkbike Poll: Should Enduro Transfer Stages Be as Tough as Pro XC Climbs?
Thats like saying xc guys should actually cross a country otherwise the name doesnt make sense...

Pinkbike Poll: Should Enduro Transfer Stages Be as Tough as Pro XC Climbs?
Enduro should stay as the "common man's race", for the guys who dont have time to do 10h of turbo trainer a week, but also wernt born with the natural skills of Hill or Blenkinsop. As such, your standard enduro race shoud be doable by anyone who rides 1-2 a week, this is what makes enduro appealing, and can bring people into the sport. Personally, I hate when a competition isnt representative of the sport, which is why I simply cant watch XC eliminator, which doesnt correspond to anyones riding, or the south africa WC which doesnt look like anything 99% of riders ride. So I would argue, even at EWS level the stages and climbs should be a level above a local race, but not over 2000m of ascending or 50k loops, and giving riders a chance to catch their breath, possibly do a 5 minute repair job during the liaison, time to eat a bar etc. I personally dont like the idea of a paddock (or lunch break) either, especially in Italian races, where the return to paddock seems to add 10km of road liaisons for nothing

Red Bull Rampage 2014: Brandon Semenuk's 3rd Place Run
Dude you missed the best one: first rider starts his second run Totally-clueless-announcer: "The big question now is: will he change his LINE?" dead silence... Less-clueless-but-not-hyped-enough-announcer: "Well... he definitely wont change his line" To make things worse, they had literaly discussed this 5 minutes beforehand...
