Ragot was simply on FIRE, a full 15.279 seconds up on the competition!


After several hours of pouring rain the women's race was all about who could stay on the bike. The track went from fairly tacky yesterday to an absolute greasy mess today, and not only did Emmeline Ragot manage to mostly stay on her bike but she also absolutely pinned it, taking the women's race by 15 seconds over Rachel Atherton and 27 seconds ahead of third place Claire Buchar. Last year's World Champion Tracy Moseley finished 44 seconds back in 9th place.

Women's Top 5

1. Emmeline Ragot
2. Rachel Atherton
3. Claire Buchar
4. Myriam Nicole
5. Sabrina Jonnier

Richly deserved after a somewhat forgettable and injury plagued season.

 freecaster can't help the weather. it would be an absolute shit fight up there trying to film this race. cut them some slack.

 So am I. I've missed the start so £15 quid seems a bit much to pay now. they should bring the price down as we get closer to the end...

 Or they should have made the price lower in the first place so more people would pay and they would get the same profit.

 As good as our sport is, i dont think is should be paid for. Yes people need to make a living but i can bet people with cameras would flock to film events like these and broadcast them for free (after all it would make great experience).

Could be like american pie.

 definitely dude. i'd spend thousands in travel/food fees to film a race halfway across the world.


the people at freecaster cover races professionally. that's their career. it's like bands giving music away for free: it would be great for us, but bad for them, and it's never gonna happen.

 There are amateur filmographers in any area that a race will happen. Job done
