 @Cable74: so much for free speech lol
  • + 53
 @pigman65: The ability to disagree and thumbs down is also free speech

 @Cable74: If you mean she got lucky for other top riders falling off then I'd have to disagree, she found her limmit where others overcooked it, I think that's part of what makes the worlds so tough for riders

 This is whats great about sports, you really don't know whats going to happen.

 On another note, so gutted for Eleonora Farina, she seemed overwhelmed with the bronze medal just to be stripped of it by the timing error of Nicole.

 Miranda Miller looks like a sister of Stevie Smith! #longlivechainsaw

 Boy, those baggy outfits aren't very baggy anymore. Are riders tryna go fast or something?
  • + 8
 I for one think it's gotten a little too ridicules. They've been getting progressively tighter throughout this season. Miller and Bruni's were straight up body socks this race.
  • + 9
 @Vernon2145: I don't see a problem with it. They are definitely still more moto than Lycra, and probably look a little better fitted anyway.
  • + 6
 Naw man, its the pads underneath that make them tight.
  • + 6
 @Thustlewhumber: Don't forget the rediculous muscles
  • + 6
 The ultra tight pants on a few select riders this year (Bruno, Brosnan, etc) is out of control.

I prefer slim fitted everything but Jesus Christ
  • + 3
 Specialized use their own wind tunnel to perfect the fit. There's rules however, i think you need to be able to pinch some of the clothing, it can't be skin tight
  • + 7
 Yes, the UCI rules state "All lycra-elastane based tight-fitting clothing is not permitted."

.
Obviously teams max out how far the understanding of this rule can be stretched.

 @kerberos: "stretched". I see what you did there. Nice.

 Thanks for the love, legends ✌️ There is a SWISS Saturday XC wrap-up also, feat. Croc-Cock slow-mo... #notatypo Worth a view, under my videos.

 Soooo much better than the official one
  • + 7
 Congrats to Miller and Bruni but I can't help but feel for the Hannahs. They looked f$#king gutted.
  • + 2
 Great work - approximately 47.6 times better than the UCI highlights videos. Being in one of the lucky countries where it was nigh on impossible to watch the racing, this gave me a great feeling for the atmosphere. Kudos!

 What Camera is that filmed on? Wonderful grading for the harsh light conditions
  • + 1
 Agreed. I'm curious too.
  • + 1
 phantom camera i guess
  • + 3
 still better coverage than the live stream....
  • + 2
 Anyone know the tune? Not usually my scene but I think it brought out the vibes of this great little edit
  • + 3
 Odesza - Memories that you Call I was just going to post great soundtrack. If you like that song, all their music is similarly good.
  • + 2
 Is that an enve rim the guy is hitting at 0:18? that's one use for an expensive hoop
  • + 6
 E13 rim! No one actually afford Enve rims
  • + 3
 That was a Special edit indeed ! Stevie would love it big
  • + 2
 That was far better than the live coverage :-)
