 I wanted them both to win so bad and could not imagine how they felt afterwards. Then to see their attitudes and how upbeat they both were afterwards is really uplifting. Class competitors who gave it all and accepted the results.

 Mik Freakin Hannah came to send this junk. Class act and a beast of a competitor.

 Great video. It still confuses me a bit as to why they call you a world champ and put so much emphasis on winning one race, sure there's a lot of significance on it and it's obviously called world champs. But it seems there's more importance to this race than being the overall UCI DH world champ. Anyone else feel this way?

 Its like comparing the NHL to olympic Hockey. NHL you play for your team, Olympics you play for your country.

 Because it's possible to win the overall by consistently coming 5th, so while you might be world cup champion, you're not actually 'the fastest', you're just 'one of' the fastest. Like Mick said in the video, to win the worlds you've got to deal with all the pressure and be THE fastest guy in the world. That's why it's held in such high regard.

 Complete class acts, both Mick and Tracey along with the whole team. They may not be my favorite riders but I will be rooting for them every race next year!

 Great video and how can you not root for them? Painful how close they both were. However that track looked nothing like a World Cup or champs DH track. So much pedaling.

 Hey @Easmtb: episodes are only available 72h on the web because it then goes on tv and the tv don’t want to have the episode on youtube while they broadcast the series.
