 Apparently there’s knowledge that is out of my reach. How’s that Hart’s splits were: 2nd, 3rd, 3rd, 2nd and he scored higher than Gwin, who was the fastest on every split?
Now, when I caught your attention as well, I would like to tell a story. A friend of mine, who rides dh better than average Joey, a lot better, had a chance to meet Danny. At one moment – apparently – Danny decided to go to a bakery. My friend decided to accompany Danny. Danny was having time of his life, enjoying nature, surroundings and slow pace. On the other hand my friend was fighting for his life, trying to catch up Danny. On 8-minutes track Danny managed to gain 21 minutes of lead over my friend. To sum up, next time seeing Danny remember to bow to one of the fastest men in the world. The end.

 @Borro: From what I can gather, Danny Hart decided to go to a bakery that was conveniently located at the bottom of a downhill track. Danny warped both space and time, and got a nice pastry as a result.

Did I read that right?

 @Borro: what a load of complete bollocks

 But well done danny. About time, you deserved it

 Ok, put it simplier - I honestly don't get it with splits times? Secondly, friend of mnie once was really going down the same track as Danny without chance to catch up. Danny was just crousing, while quite well riding friend was trying his best. Just shows the gap between pros and rest of the world. But whatever...
  • + 20
 @Borro: Split times cut the track into 5 parts. He was slower in all 4 but very very close. He was faster on the last one. ("split 5 = finish line")

Start...(slower)...split 1...(slower)...split 2...(slower)...split 3...(slower)...split 4...(faster)...finish.
  • + 16
 @Borro: Because the final split isn't the finish line. The finish line is the finish line. Hart 'overtook' Gwin between split 4 and the line.

Anyway, Danny Hart stayed on his bike. This is all that matters right now! Wink

 A Hart attack and a win. Well deserved Danny boy!

 Absolutely stoked for Danny!!

 @russthedog: yeah man, been a long time coming. Was at Champery when he smashed out the champs run and lost my voice from it, so I've been expecting this for a while!

 @bikerguy24: hahaha nice m8

 Minnaar got robbed and it's been too many wooden features on the track! #letaggyin
  • + 5
 @Borro: chemtrails.....
  • + 5
 @Borro: The split times don't represent the difference between the two riders for that portion of the track, they represent the difference for the entire track up to that point. So if rider A was considerably faster in Split 1, then rider B could ride split 2 faster but still be behind overall. Does that make sense? Here's an example with the actual time it took to ride each split, with the total lap time (which is what is being presented on TV) beside it in brackets.

Split 1 A: 30 seconds [00:30]
Split 1 B: 45 seconds [00:45, +0:15]
Difference: Rider B shows that he is back 15 seconds

Split 2 A: 30 seconds [1:00]
Split 2 B: 20 seconds [1:05, +0:05]
Difference: Rider B's total time is still 5 seconds slower, even though he was faster in this split, so he would still show as being in the red.

Finish line A: 30 seconds [1:30, +0:01]
Finish line B: 24 seconds [1:29]
Result: Rider B won the race by one second!

Therefore Danny was trailing Gwin most of the track, but towards the bottom was probably starting to do the specific split sections faster.

 Redbull = worst thing ever to happen to mountain biking.
Before the UCI sold the rights to redbull, the world cup was shown on Freecaster and Eurosport and could be streamed from the Dirt, Pinkbike, Vital etc as well as highlights from the likes of the Parkin brothers.
At its peak, viewing figures reached 14.5 million on Eurosport!
This meant the riders could attract mega bucks sponsorship deals.. remember Nissan, Honda etc being involved?
Since Redbull took over the ONLY place anyone can watch the event is redbull TV and it doesnt even work!
Viewing figures have dropped to a few hundred thousand, other sites are no longer alloed to stream and no one is allowed to film the racing!
So no more highlights from the Parkins and much smaller wages for the riders involved.

 Don't forget to buy more red bull!
  • + 7
 woodrat you are on point man! What id like to know is Why do we rely on red bull so much? they just sell energy drink right? Usually used for rinsing down Yeager mister, which is crazy toxic... Idk it seems like car company's and solo brodcasters have more money/ more to offer etc.. then red bull.

 @SteveDekker: The irony is there could be legitimate debate on which Brit had the bigger downhill performance.

 @ReformedRoadie: Froome hit 90kph today. 90kph, on a road bike, round corners. He wins the balls of steel award for the week, the month and probably the year. Epic ride from Danny and Rachel too, the UK may have a shite football team, but we make some awesome cyclists!

 Let's not forget how much better Rob's commentary was on Freecaster. From my perspective I would have been far more hyped for the race today if we had the same style of commentary as when Danny won worlds. I miss the hype
  • + 44
 on top of all that... Redbull doesn't understand which TRACK SECTIONS TO FILM. Today they missed the ROCK GARDEN and THE TRIPLE JUMP. In the past they have constantly missed the sections where a race is won or lost. Redbull makes money off of extreme athletes yet their FILM PRODUCTION DOES NOT INSPIRE, INNOVATE, OR PUSH ANY LIMITS. SOMEONE PLEASE BRING BACK FREECASTER OR SET UP A PETITION TO GET RID OF REDBULL FROM MOUNTAIN BIKING.

 Fuck Redbull, screwing over downhill and trying to sell extremely unhealthy energy drinks to kids.

 Red Bull TV didn't work on my phone or tab so I had to watch on Facebook live. The stream was a lot smoother than it normally is on Red Bull TV, albeit too small.

It peaked at 1.8k viewers, which means only 1800 people were watching it. 1800? Is that all? Now I read it was 14 million on Eurosport.

Sort it out Brian!

 Redbull - the worst thing that ever happened to MTB, Hahahah. I thought that if you grew big enough to be able to post comments on the internet, you have outgrown the tendency to ideas and expressions like: parents suck. Redbull is one of the biggest contributors to the development of MTB. If you can't get that then you may need to get your sht together. Remember Rocky Roads? So... If you don't like UCI or Redbull or Specialized but want debelopment of the sport then go play RPG, take psychodelics. You must escape this reality ASAP!

 @WAKIdesigns: Specialized? Development of the sport?
Where to start...they do not offer a 29er, until it is established and has a market share (i.e. profitable). Then they are all in. They poo poo 27.5, realize that it is going to replace 26" and take part of 29ers share and they bodge together existing frames with new stays and stacers under headset cups to sell 27.5 bikes.
Putting a hatch in your downtube? Does anyone chose a bike for that feature?
"Innovate or die" still makes me laugh.
If anything, they squash development by threatening anything remotely related to their products with litigation.

 @ReformedRoadie: that was an example of a big company and holy fk... I could not give any fk about Spec, but some people here should really see a shrink about it...
  • + 2
 I don't like Specialized because of their legal bullying.

Having said that, I've recently noticed that they sell some pretty awesome stuff at reasonable prices. For example, the Butcher tyres, which are very similar to the Minion DHF but cheaper. Just £35 in Grid casing, which is comparable to Schwalbe's SG but 40% cheaper.

The 2FO shoes look awesome too, along with the Dissident helmet. Both very reasonably priced. I'm going to get the shoes this summer. Maybe even the helmet too. Why limit yourself?

 Yes this sucks. We all wanted to watch the race, but keep in mind, red bull has given you free entertainment. Not a dollar or five FREE. They don't spam you with shitty ads either.

 On the Roku app the live stream always begins 15 minutes after it does on the mobile app so it's 15 behind. When the stream ends on the mobile, it stops on the Roku app too even though it's not in sync, so you miss the last 15 of the race and have to wait for the replay to go up. Today it only took like 20 minutes but sometimes it's like 10 hours.

 @el-nombre: now your just nit picking. If it's on the schedule as a UCI DHI race, its a world cup race. Worlds needs to be a points bearing race that factors into the overall. That one race has become a circus.

  • - 1
 PB comment section= no opinions allowed

I know the difference between world champs and just a race on the regular schedule. Sorry, ive never liked how Worlds is a non- factor towards the overall. The biggest race of the year that everyone and their grandma attends and you get a white t-shirt for winning. Seems like every year Worlds overshadows the overall title and that's who the real world champ is.
  • + 10
 @RatHunter83: The problem with World Champs counting for the overall is that each country can only qualify a limited number of riders. So if you come from, say, GB you could be hunting for a top 20 or top 15 overall but not get selected to ride worlds, but your direct competitors from weaker countries would get selected and therefore have the opportunity to win a whole race worth of free points against you, and that's a massive handicap.

The second thing is, if Worlds counts towards the overall then it would be just another race, and some riders might be in a position where a conservative ride with guaranteed points is better than a more risky run. As it is now, Worlds is a balls to the wall, all or nothing, one run throwdown. And that's why it's not just another World Cup.
  • + 1
 @el-nombre: Great question. You have to go with someone who's been knocking on the door for a while, with solid results on all kinds of tracks. Mik Hannah has won a World Cup race, right? I know Brendog hasn't. Maybe he's the next "best rider to never win a World Cup race." He hasn't ever really been knocking on the door though. Mostly he's happy if he's in the top ten. Rarely if ever on the podium. Nominees anyone?

 I'm wondering wtf. I actually think he needs to ride more big mountains. The level is so high now you can't afford to be not riding wc tracks all the time. Look at the times 70 odd riders and 20 sec off the win, so close.

 @Turboute: Agree with that, looks like he has a lot of family life going on, I suppose trying to striking a balance takes its toll somewhere.
  • + 5
 Most of those young dominators are unstoppable until they take a legit digger. Only limited few like Minnaar come back and get even better. Danny seems to have recovered but he has a long way to winning consistency. Gwin hasn't been down properly yet. Hill seems to have never got back into his notorious winning ways after Fort William's bail. Maybe the world progressed so much while he was out. Impossible to tell.

 @WAKIdesigns: correct and also that he now has 3 rugrats to keep him busy and change his perspective on life. I'm still very impressed with his 2nd in the Irish EWS, maybe he'll concentrate on that next year.

 @WAKIdesigns: you are wak waki

 @ColquhounerHooner: perhaps If he clipped in he'd start winning again... but then he'd lose 90% of his devoted fans.

 An absolute beast of a race and a beast of a run by Danny Hart! Like watching a movie with a very big twist at the end. Wowwww!
  • + 7
 Did anybody else notice how Hart just crushed it right after Rob Warner was asking if he was going to take 2nd place for a 5th time?
  • + 5
 Seems to me that Redbull needs to give their technicians and TV people a few cans of their own product so we can finally be able to watch a race with no issues
  • + 3
 they need to consult with WSL

 Although I always find myself rooting for my countryman Gwin, I was super stoked to see Danny Hart come down and take the win the way he did. Couldn't be happier for the guy and the end result. Great race.

 DANNY F@CKING HART!!!! I love this sport so much! That has to be one of the most exciting finishes ever! Watching him soak it all up while holding his bike over his head brought a tear to my eye, so happy for him. Awesome.

 I'm surprised how much people had issues with the broadcast, for me it was smooth. Otherwise I'd be pissed

 So stoked for Danny! Absolutely incredible win against the seemingly unstoppable Gwin. I agree too with the comments regarding RedBull streaming. No luck on my iPhone but Apple TV worked fine. They need to let Warner off the leash too. Just let him do what he does.

 I haven't seen an entire World Cup telecast since the start of the season and its sad to see how much the style of commentating has changed. Nothing against Claudio or Rob, but they are getting very boring! I think we all know what the problem is. Bring back the good Ol days of Warner getting loose in the commentary box, dropping his one liners and having abit of fun. Damn fun police

Congrats to Danny Hart, thought Gwin had it right until the end!

 I can 1000% guarantee TOOL would have nothing to do with Red Bull.
