 These types of press releases are pretty annoying. Only listing their sponsored riders in an official looking results list isn't very classy. And as dhdev and alex2 mention, Shimano riders get skipped. Well done to all.

 Agreed. Pinkbike should screen these better. Sure it's OK to identify the SRAM riders, but it's disrespectful to discount all the others. Just makes SRAM look arrogant.

 I agree I think its pretty damn cheesy only listing there sponsored riders. I think its disrespectful since there are plently of great riders e.g. Rachel Atherton placing in the top spot but not being mentioned pffft grow some balls and give congrats to all who deserve it and this coming from a guy riding sram avid truvativ and boxxer set up on his bikes doesnt matter what you ride if they got top spot they should get a mentioning they deserve it BOOO take this shit post off

 The majority of posts here are not talking about great Sram riders, or how Sram equipment must be top notch, but rather how partial race results annoy the crap out of them. Get a clue Sram and Pinkbike - you are not helping your cause. Sram, how about listing all the top riders and then highlighting your own? Pinkbike, can't you find someone to provide less biased race results?

 SRAM definitely doesn't help itself by posting just it's riders. Even if you don't post their sponsors, other riders should get credit for their accomplishments. But none the less, congrats congrats congrats to Minnar; one of the nicest athletes in the sport.
