 god,

i guess i have to watch this stuff with music in the background. Get rid of Brad Jay. Does he have photo's of someone at crankworx?

 Brad Jay should at least do some reading and research about the riders. I mean that's just lazy and he's getting paid to do that. SMH

 Constantly plugging riders SRAM products was getting old. Year after year. We know it's the title sponsor but for gods sake, a little less thick next time, k?

 I'm pretty disappointed in the coverage. 1st off, as mentioned above, the plugs were a little ridiculous... When he plugged the specialized 29er carbon wheel and gave the internal width, I almost shut it off. 2nd, you need splits, you didn't know if someone was up or down prior to crossing the line... I want to yell at the TV if I know someone is close. Lastly, and the most disappointing, there was ZERO coverage of graves last run... I would have gotten the same excitement from looking at a stat sheet... You mentioned he was on course 5 times, how about some commentary and video of his final charge.

 They focused the cameras on a Specialized rider in the pits, that's where the attention was naturally! Plugging the new specialized 29er rim and it's internal width was complete BS. No context for it, just threw it out re eh Si? Just like there really aren't mountain bike industry journalists anymore (journ-marketers instead), there seems to be no impartial commentators except for Warner et all on e UCI circuit. The girl in the pits doing the interviews, was actually pretty damn good considering the drivel over the commentary mic.

It was awesome to hear, however, Keene giving props to the Amateurs with day jobs, slugging it out on e same course, with some doing some pretty damn good times.

 Dont get enduro at all! Thought id have a watch n see whats what. Apart from the terrible coverage and having to constanly skip ahead to try an find 5secs of action it just looks like a longer n boring version of DH but with pedaling in between stages (wich arnt even timed?)
Am I missing something here or what?

 Anneke Beerten was fourth. She has been riding the Specialized Enduro 29er all year, but it looked to me like she switched to the new Enduro 650B at this race. What you missed was the second place woman Tracy Moseley. She was definitely riding the Trek Remedy 29er. I'm pretty sure the whole Trek team still is.

 Better camera footage please! That wasn't covered very well ! Such a cool event if you could see some of the killer sections on the descents !

 I tried watch but in felt like was watching a commercial and the announcers were pretty dull. I think they need to work on the tv format.

 Yeah agree. Jumped forward a couple times to try and find some good action footage but no luck. Commentators were saying the same each thing each time haha. To be fair though I had just watched a replay of the DH which was just awesome.

 I might take these people to small claims court and charge them for my time. That was awful.

 Would absolutely love to see Martin Maes take the win! Imagine it, Taylor Vernon and Martin Maes winning in the same weekend, the party at GT would be incredible

 Je m'excuse Cecile Ravanel avec 29er gagner!!!
  • 1 1
 Cecile Ravanel won the race on a GT Force which is 650B, not a 29er.
  • 1 0
 your right ...I replayed....the broadcast and the announcers were talking about the 4th place rider just as Cecile's run started in the broadcast....the 650B' s are dominating the enduro...but the one girl on the 29er came in 4th I believe,,,thanks for correcting me,
