 Am I the only one that thinks "where did they find this host, and why does he always look like he just woke up from a video game induced coma"?

 I'm pretty sure he used to be in mbuk a lot back in the day. Other than the sketchy taste in fashion I don't know what everyone's complaining about? Yeah he's pretty dull but then again so it watching the EWS. I'd say it was a match made in heaven.

 @thenotoriousmic: I'm not complaining about him necessarily, I just find it funny that he just always looks disheveled
  • + 15
 @manchvegas: it's the Irish way to be fair. Disheveled is our natural state.
  • + 39
 No disrespect but the US probably holds the title for "most squeaky clean presenters". This is mountain biking, I don't care if our presenters look a little rough around the edges. I think he has a nice relaxed style in appearance and his manner. No complaints here.

 @karatechris: I'd take the scruffy Irish guy over the Crankworx hype-jockey's any day. This coverage/footage keeps getting better too...with no redbull player! Wink

 I think that's Ric Mclaughlin... he used to be a contributor to Mountain Biking UK magazine(I'm sure he's done other things too, that's just the only thing I can remember about him).

 sam hill needs WAAAAYYYY more coverage!!!!
  • + 22
 what a beautiful place and trails. racers are real warriors, some parts are really steep and gnarly. when a country holds a EWS stage the main reason is tourism and I can tell you that after this race I need to go to Madeira! One of the most beautiful trails I have ever seen

 @George-Araujo: Fala com os Weride www.weride.pt em modo bike trip a pagar com guias, em Portugal continental. Tipo tens imensos trilhos top em Sintra perto de Lisboa, tens Lousã mais no interior, tens um bikepark no norte em Ponte de Lima, Algarve há bastantes também... e tens isto centrosdebtt.pt que te pode ajudar a perceber o há. Wink fica bem...

 I love these videos. I wonder though if EWS will suffer though because it's nearly impossible to do a live broadcast? Road cycling can use a helicopter and motorcycles with great visibility, downhill tracks are reasonably short and can have cameras in strategic positions, but an EWS round is like having 10 full-lengths downhill races to cover. It's a shame because Enduro is arguably cycling's most applicable competitive series to mountain bikers.
  • + 25
 It would be more applicable if it was three stages and the last one ended at a pub or brewery.
  • + 4
 Cycling's most applicable competitive series to mountain bikers:

1) XC
2) Enduro
3) DH

I think if you include all mountain bikers (not just the full-face helmet wearers) you'll find that XC is probably closer to what the majority are doing... Sure in bike parks and such it's a different story, but in general more people are riding on XC-style trails than anything else.
  • + 7
 @billreilly: Riding on XC type trails? Perhaps. Racing XC type trails... eh, really depends on where you are located. Here in the states, in the PNW there are hardly *any* XC races, and that is taking into account marathon/endurance type of XC racing. Any region that has any sort of elevation is putting together Enduro races/series because it just makes more sense. Passing on single track? Dangerous and frustrating. Chip timed segments are more and more the way it's being done these days, and really lets the fastest racer prevail.

 Graves eating his rear tire should be motivational poster plastered in bike shops, schools, race venues all around the world.. madman...

 and spaz would sue all of them. :b

 Does anyone know what he was actually doing there?
  • + 1
 @RobSteep: I feel like he was stabilizing a tire lever?
  • + 1
 @HpSauce: ... or maybe biting off the end of a "maxalami"???

 Mad props to Noga Corem, man she is really something, such a talented rider. Now i know i am a bit biased and all but damn i think it's about time some major brand will take her in. As a privateer ending at 3rd place i can only imagine where she would end up with a proper team besides her.
  • + 3
 Love cheering on a privateer. Read that she was racing at Olympic level at one point. That gave some perspective to average riding wannabe lazy ol me!
  • + 13
 So is there an address to where we can send Ric a hair comb and a razor?
  • + 13
 Loving the coverage, fantastic stuff. Go on Greg!
  • + 10
 Awesome edit! EWS is really nailing it with such slick coverage. I guess when the quality of racing is so high that's half the jib done...
  • + 8
 Great video, but I feel like they could have added a lot more to the drama that this race had. The live feed had me on edge through both days with all of the lead changes. Felt like they missed a big piece of this. Seems like it would be pretty easy to add in more post run discussions that would expose more of what was happening during the stages.
  • + 7
 Would love to see EWS go live stream, but enjoy the highlight edits.
Excellent general narration and balance between rider action and interviews (though either subtitles or removing the full face would help full comprehension).

Madeira definitely a new bullet point on the bucket list.
  • + 10
 Lol at Richie Rude watching Jared Graves waste his CO2 cannister.
  • + 6
 Awesome coverage! Really appreciate that this has a little more length to it. 20 Minutes for a weekend of racing seems short, but it ends up being just about perfect.
  • + 5
 At least its not 14mins, so cant complain. Smile

 A bike with a front derailleur won again?
  • + 1
 You may ask if he use the front derailleur in the stages...
  • + 5
 @Lipbraga: Of course he doesn't but he does use it between the stages.
  • + 5
 @Lipbraga: He does, for the climbs. Shimano XTR Di2 is programed to operate off the right hand shifter.
  • + 8
 He went "Full YOLO"
  • + 1
 I actually paused the video after that because I was laughing so hard Big Grin
  • + 5
 Hilarious editing at the end there with the Michael Bay breakdown. Almost expected shit to start exploding.

 12:52 DAYUM!!!
Madeira added to a very long bucket list Smile

 this is most sad. lame post ever... but I want the EWS intro sound track as my ringtone... what is it?? android.. not iphone.. this could be the greatest neg props ever seen on PB... But let's face it... I'm not the only one!!

 Best race coverage yet. Really well put together. And how good does Madeira look?!?!?!?!
  • + 7
 SAM HILL!

 These EWS videos probably give me more stoke to ride than any video I've seen. I don't know what it is but it gets me so pumped to work on skills and fitness. Thank You!!!
  • + 4
 Just amazed at the level of riding EWS requires. It's becoming more and more like World Cup DH without lifts.
  • + 5
 Outstanding coverage! What a gem of a location!
  • + 4
 Really great coverage. A good mix of coverage from all riders and some fantastic footage!
  • + 3
 Great coverage, suddenly NEED to go to Madeira!

 It looked like Rude and Graves were helping each other with that tire bite. Despite being on separate teams now, you know they will always have each others back!

 Two days of racing compressed in to 19 minutes , WTF? Surely they can put together a longer highlights edit than this.
  • + 4
 I'm pretty happy with the amount of coverage personally - but it would be cool if in the future they included some helmet cam footage of the podium guys though, if not some full stages.
  • + 3
 @Hockerz: Last year we got at least 25 minutes and longer the year before. They could do so much more, maybe a short and a longer highlights edit and some PoV would be great.

No need. It's Danny Hart.
