 Moir was not down and out a couple years ago. He was racing WC DH.. I hope EWS is about to do something to make the coverage more entertaining compared to WC DH, cause every season seems to be a snooze fest. The next day pov videos do not make up for the lack of live coverage.

 @DoubleCrownAddict: Did you miss the part where he signed a contract with Cannondale and they pulled out after all the team contracts were settled and no one had a spot for him?
  • 5 0
 @chriskneeland: correct. Only thing he could get was an enduro gig to tide him over with maybe the odd downhill race thrown in. Makes what he's achieved all the more sweet.

 @chriskneeland: That doesn't meet the definition of "down and out". Contract difficulties are a regular part of the sport for most racers. He was never down and he was never out.
  • 9 0
 @DoubleCrownAddict: No bike sponsor to send him around the world doing what he does for a living? Sounds pretty out to me. And I'd imagine pretty down.
  • 1 0
 @DoubleCrownAddict: contract difficulties are really not as commonplace as you’re making it seem. They occasionally happen, yes, but they’re not regular.

 @chriskneeland: He had a good season the year before, so he was obviously gonna get somebody to sponsor him. Stop grasping at straws, he was never down and never out, period.

 @DoubleCrownAddict: "Burned out and trolling Gumtree for ditch digging jobs, Wyn Masters reached out asking if Moir had considered riding Enduro and proceeded to make introductions with as many teams as he could. It was late in the year, really late ... he was running out of time to find a team. Masters was able to help Moir get his foot in the door, but most of the teams had already filled their roster. The timing could not have been worse."

 @mi-bike: I heard something similar in another interview. Still didn't meet the definition of "down and out", according the the meaning:

Definitions from Oxford Languages
Search for a word
/ˈˌdoun ən ˈˌout/
(of a person) without money, a job, or a place to live; destitute.
"a down-and-out homeless vagrant"
without a penny to one's name

a person without money, a job, or a place to live.
"a hostel for down-and-outs"

He was never homeless or a vagarant, not even close.

The fact that he won ews and got picked up by Monster shows how much talent, determination, and drive he has. Even in his contact difficulties it was inevitable that he was going to do some good racing in the future, just a matter of time. Now you know what down and out means, your welcome!

 @DoubleCrownAddict: Mate, the Oxford Dictionary's DEFINITION for "down-and-out" THAT YOU JUST QUOTED states the following:

(of a person) without ... a job

According to the Oxford Dictionary, Jack Moir was definitely down and out!
  • 1 3
 Wrong, said similar to that. Actual definition:

(of a person) without money, a job, or a place to live; destitute.
"a down-and-out homeless vagrant"

He was not homeless or a vagrant, quit insulting Jack.

 @DoubleCrownAddict: I'd say the term has some subjectivity relevant to a situation, and whether it's used literally or figuratively. You should try looking up the word Nuance. Also, Asshat while you're at it.

 @chriskneeland: Also: pedant and egghead

 @DoubleCrownAddict: Context, bruh. In the context of a professional bike racer, having no sponsor, not getting to races, and a completely uncertain future is pretty well "down and out". Or continue to be an insufferable pedantic dipstick. Another definition of down and out: Net forum props of like -100,000.

 3 of the Top 10 Women as privateers in one way or another. Sign them up.
  • 12 0
 Privateers or just that their team chooses not to pay the EWS team tax? Unless you pay the 'official' team fee (which is several thousand IIRC) they won't show your sponsors on the results sheet.

 @femto505: she didn't move, she was dumped. She documented how difficult it was to even get a bike this year. It really showed how hard the sport can be for some. Glad she did well.

 Brits always love a humble Aussie, especially the English ones after an Ashes thrashing. I suspect a lot of Pink bikers are not aware of the sporting 'banter' between the two islands.

 Someone mentioned he’s been struggling to recover from a shoulder injury this year. If he’s leaving trek next year, he might not have gelled well with that teams environment.

 @Afterschoolsports: yes recover from a shoulder injury and don't know if Treck is the better team for him

 @seb06bzh: mid stage climbs and from the looks of the team videos, not being as in good shape physically as the other competitors. I sincerely hope he can come back and challenge again. The winning mindset can be hard to get back once you lose it, especially if you’ve had a taste of what the next phase in life is like. I expect to see him grinding up the climbs around Perth over summer.
  • 3 5
 Had Rude stayed in and finished say, top 5, would he have won the overall?
  • 12 1
 Moir was already in the lead and coasting to 4th in the final race after Rude's disqualification. So, no.
