 Suggestion for EWS live timing folks. It works fine, but don’t update the overall until all racers in a category complete a stage. If you update the overall as riders complete stages it is useless since it shows guys way down the ranking as if they are in first.

 This. Or at least add a column into each stage result page with the total times and order numbers up to that point.

 @chris-b-mtb didn't get to fix the dumpster fire that is the EWS live timing system because he had to handle the fallout from the PB Ask-me-Anything this week.
  • 22 1
 In all fairness it is way better than the last round where it was barely useable, but it seems a weird oversight to not split overall standings by each stage. The old system they had for years was pretty good apart from being a bit slow which still seems to be a problem with the new setup.

 @edspratt: could you reverse the order of the live news feed here so that newest posts show at the top rather than the bottom of the page please? Just like on bbc live news feeds for example. Thank you please.

 @edspratt: this new live timing page is bad, really bad. Even compared to the old one that was, as you commented, slow and sluggish. During Tweed Valley race it was a nightmare. Today was a bit better but still lot worst than past years. And they don't keep the live commentaries, so if you try to see what happened say on 2nd stage while riders are on 4th, not possible, they don't keep the full history of commentaries since the start of the day. Clearly no real testing was done before the start of the season and whoever did the change didn't even bored checking with real users and ask for suggestions/improvements from previous year. All in all, it sucks.

 @oatkinso: Totally disagree. It helps avoid spoilers and allows you to read it linearly if you want to read it in suspense if you missed the event.

 @CantQuitCartel: if they were smart, PB racing would also be an enduro team
  • 16 11
 @pisgahgnar: while we mostly all ride Enduro, lets be honest, the show is in DH not Enduro. Watching lads riding faster than you on stuff you can ride isn't very exciting, DH is gnarly and will always be a much better show, watched by much more people. Trial is cool AF, so is rampage, yet how many are watching rampage, how many are watching a Trial comp ? Same stuff here which is why sponsoring a DH Team makes more sense that an Enduro team, and why a lot more Freeriders can make a living out of their sports than Trial riders. Might not be fair but neither is life.

 @CantQuitCartel: maybe given less of a priority now that things are going to discovery or whatever it is. Could be that there’s not an incredible amount to be earned when production is being handled by another company in some part.

 @Balgaroth: Speak for yourself, I love watching these dudes and dudettes rip enduro trails, just wish the coverage was better/more comprehensive. Watching people ride stuff you can theoretically ride (I've ridden some EWS caliber trails at Burke and that shit was borderline) and max speed is mind bending.
  • 2 0
 @Balgaroth: Enduro bikes are the biggest selling category for bike manufacturers at the moment. I think there should be a big push from the industry to improve the EWS coverage format which will not only grow companies but grow the sport.

 @railruts-nailsluts: SUVs are the biggest selling category for cars, should we stop watching F1, Rally and Monster Trucs and start watching SUB racing ? Same here.

 As much as I am a Hill fan, seems like he is destined for E Bike racing with his boy Sik Mik. He has not had the speed for a few years now....unlikely to magically come back.

 For his first race in ages, and for having recently recovered from Covid and it’s side effects that were bad enough to prevent him from traveling and racing in tweed…

I think he actually did pretty well.

I’m hopeful we’ll see him get more competitive as the season goes on.

Also, Congrats to Jesse. Looks like we may have a great series this year Smile .

 Great to see PB alumni up there. Say what you will about the show but the top riders are having a solid start and glad PBA gave them an opportunity to go after it. Go Evan and Emmett!
  • 2 0
 Not sure what happened to Emmett in the last stage. Looking at the EWS website it looks like he dropped to 6th for the event, but I can't find the stage breakdowns for the U21. He was chasing a podium finish for a bit there.

 Hellova weekend for the kiwis but I'd be lying if I said the main reason I checked these was to see where Matt came after riding 1500km to get here...

 oof - Rude having a shocker on stage 4 losing 8 seconds on a short stage to Jesse. Even Moir lost 3.5s Wish I could see how that affects the overall!
  • 4 0
 With the big gap between stages four and five we can luckily see the overall before it gets overwritten. Jesse leads by 16.790 seconds over Richie at the moment. Jack is 24.6 behind.

 Actually the Overall on the live timing is now useful as nobody has ridden stage 5 yet.
