 Before she started I thought she should take it easy, trust on her skills and progress steadily. But this time the risk paid off and the run was a pleasure to wach. The first World Cup win was well deserved! I hope the insured riders recover quickly and we see all the strong female riders at competitive races in 2021.

 Nice of Rob to point out that while the gaps between riders is shorter, we do see less of their run. We tend to be quite harsh with Redbull TV, and perhaps it's not always necessary. But I must ask; why would they choose to show the flat pedal immediately after the massive rock garden? Did no one think maybe fans would prefer the massive rock garden?
  • 3 12
flag nhlevi (Oct 18, 2020 at 6:15) (Below Threshold)
 There are 2-3 riders on track at the same time and they opted to show their starts (cut in) and the bottom of their runs (live-ish), is all. You can't make a 3h live feed out of a 1.5h race
  • 13 0
 @nhlevi: ...and I was not suggesting so. At all. I specifically called into question the airing of the flat pedal after the rock garden instead of the rock garden itself.
  • 2 5
 @Rudy2455: As I've said. I guess that's when they catch up live with the rider
  • 3 4
 @Rudy2455: What would they show instead? Another rider at some segment before that? The feed is focused on one rider at the time to make it less confusing. So if they are filming bottom say 3/5 of the track they have to show the flat gravel section because the rider has to go through it after that rock garden section.
  • 11 1
 @nhlevi: ....NFL.... 3.5 hours of broadcast for 60(more like 1Cool minutes of "playing time". They could if they wanted.
  • 4 0
 @Archimonde: Maybe the gaps between riders could be a bit bigger. The first down the hill could have a 1:15 or 1:30 min gap instead of 1 min. On a track of 3ish minutes this is a big difference for viewers and it wouldn't make the race a lot longer (only 10-15 minutes).

 I dont think its as simple as saying he's done. The reality is Gwin isn't getting worse, but the level of competition is literally the most intense its ever been. The top 5 were all in the same second. So yes, to your point hes not done... but he's gotta do something mighty special to beat the level of talent there is today.

 @jomacba: like win without a chain?
  • 4 0
 @hamncheez: Historically yes. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying he can't. I'm just saying he's gotta put together a flawless run, because chances are somebody at the elite level is going to. If he wants to win it, its gotta be him. There is no denying that Gwin is one of the greatest riders of all time, but eventually that time comes to an end for everybody. I'm grasping onto the idea that Minnaar is gonna take a win here one of these days, and we all know he can. But the question is not "can he?", the question is "will he?". Listen to Minnaar speak when he gets to the hot seat. He's not in denial of what it takes to win the race. One small mistake will likely cost the race.

 Thibaut Daprela starts his elite career with 2 straight 2nd place qualifiers, and a 3rd and 10th in those races respectively. Third in the overall standings halfway through the season. Insane!

 Some basic homework on even a few riders is badly needed. Their road to WC, previous results, where they come from, live, a few jobs they might have held down to pay the bills. Can't be that hard to put a few hours in. Equally, some technical details on the bikes, their development. It's v weak at the moment.
  • 10 2
 Rob is gold. Always has been and always will be. Claudio though.... I just feel like he isn't contributing anything of value to the commentary... Nothing that say a revolving group of guest co hosts couldn't do... To keep the commentary fresh... Keep Claudio in the mix, particularly at bigger DH race events. But his mic time needs to drastically reduced.
  • 9 3
 @tonit91: What are you talking about? Rob is the color commentator who yells a lot and gets people fired up. Claudio provides more insight and catches more nuances and points that out.
At least that's how I perceive it a lot of the time. They both add value. Although I'm sure you are a lot more clueful than the ex wc racer who also managed a dh team.

 @mybaben: I feel like its the exact opposite. Cathro would do what Claudio is supposed to do (giving more insight into line choices, difficultys the riders have to face etc.) but with a greater understanding and most likely a bigger vocabulary aswell, all while being as enthusiastic as Claudio.

 @TurboTorsten: I might agree with you there. I think Cathro may be better than Claudio, but still not what I'd really like to see. What about Eliot Jackson?!!

 @mybaben: Good shout.

I'm not a roadie, but I love watching the tour de france on ITV (UK channel). Mainly because the commentary is amazing' so much insight into the locations they're passing through, the history of the tour, the route, strategy, the different riders and their stories, the teams and their stories.

 Would be nice if we could change our fantasy team betweent the 2 races seeing as some riders get injured etc

 yeah I guess many, including me, had Reece in their team for example. Pretty bad not beeing able to change it, especially if you could change it after qualificatons number one

 The gaps in the junior womens race seem pretty big. But if I recall correctly we're still seeing different riders winning (including winning the qualifiers) and Siel consistently in second. May still make it an exciting competition for the overall.

 I don't think it will be close, bc i know leonna pierrini (1st) and i can tell you that if conditions are good, like not totally wet and track is madness, the others can't match her

 Good to see Loris doing well. Maybe he chilled out, stopped puzzling quite so much, and just listened to Jordi! (:

 Congrats to Vergier ! Such a nice, positive person, i'm really happy for him !
While i laughed at the Vergier/Jordi vid i think Jordi attitude could have been different and the vid would have been fun too. Because the fun part is not Jordi complaining but Loris making funny sounds while hauling ass. I have no doubt the Fox mechanic is great, but there are other great suspension specialists while world cup contenders / winners are not many.

 I was wondering that too. Perhaps, having not been on the UK team for Worlds, he elected not to travel for Covid reasons.

 Yes, can't even get replays to work there, on TV or computer, useless and no reason given as to why. I am running an old operating system but friends with new ones are told they are in the wrong country!

 I’ve got 2 smart tv’s, one with the app pre-installed and one I can cast to and I’ve given up on both - just watch it on my phone now.

 I'm using a firestick on an older smart TV (so no pre-loaded redbull app) and the stream was working just fine for me. I did have to reboot the firestick a few days ago as I was kept getting poor image quality/pixelation & streaming issues with a unrelated subscription service over the course of a week; so maybe give your TV and/or internet router a reboot if it's giving you grief

 Go onto roots and rain, check out Danny hart vs Matt walker and see how ridiculous that comment is. Other than these two rounds, and Maribor last year, Walker has been no where near Danny.

 @freerideglory: congratulations on missing the most tongue in cheek comment ever.

 @freerideglory: Matt is only a couple of years out of juniors and Danny one of the older racers now so of course he will be higher up on roots and rain!! give Matt another 9 years and it might be a different story. Good on him for smashing it this weekend.

 I don’t know what the answer is.
But the jr men are almost all faster than the Elite Women.
I don’t expect the women to be as fast as the men, but the time difference is crazy.
It’s like a different sport.

 It's almost as if men have a built-in strength advantage...

 Well, why wouldn't they be? They are young men...

It is a different sport and hence they compete at different times. What's the problem? (unless we get into th tranny debate again)
