Lets go Mr Consistent. You got this Troy.
(Jun 3, 2019 at 5:03)
will be a very close season this year. Can´t see a single rider dominating it 2019. Maybe even an overall winner without a World Cup win in the whole season? Troy is litteraly on the podium all the time
(Jun 3, 2019 at 6:16)
I just wish he adds some wins this year! He must be so pissed. He has been sooooo close for many years... Go Troyyyyyyy!!!!
(Jun 3, 2019 at 11:35)
Troy deserves the title. He's been so consistent for years.
(Jun 3, 2019 at 1:56)
Please stop with the scribd give top 10 places for men and women and top 5 for juniors and provide a link for the entire results
(Jun 3, 2019 at 2:24)
Judging by the scores, the people unlisted are sitting on '0' which is why they've been left off.
(Jun 3, 2019 at 10:11)
+1. Pinkbike obviously people hate scribd. Can you please consider spending a few minutes just min. writing out the top 10 or 20 riders for each category and putting that directly in the article? I imagine it would take one person 5 minutes and would go a long way with your tens of thousands of readers. There are only 15-16 WC races a year across both disciplines. Thank you.

Scribd really sucks. Please stop using it. Thanks
(Jun 5, 2019 at 2:55)
To be fair the real problem is the UCI publishing all this stuff in a PDF to start with. In the years I was writing geek stats it would drive me absolutely crazy the amount of time I had to spend extracting stuff out of PDF results sheets because the UCI don't publish anything in standard tables. Grrr...
(Jun 5, 2019 at 3:11)
: fair enough, but opening PDF's doesn't crash my phone 9/10 times I use it
(Jun 3, 2019 at 1:56)
I am not sure about Eddie Masters' last season start but he probably wasn't as consistent as this year?
15th and 9th, well done.
(Jun 3, 2019 at 10:13)
and doing well at EWS too
(Jun 3, 2019 at 4:14)
How does the virtual side by side compare thing work for racers on redbull? Splits I understand, but I dont see where they get the data from to show how is pulling away from who.. Are they all fitted with gps trackers?
(Jun 3, 2019 at 6:42)
Rob and Claudio are racing Scalextric cars and each one has a transponder on it which the virtual side by side runs off.
(Jun 3, 2019 at 7:14)
I love the people who cant figure out scribd. Like really difficult to hit that scroll arrow with the cursor.....
(Jun 3, 2019 at 8:22)
It's fine on a computer (MacOS for me). But on mobile (iOS), it's useless: it's will scroll in the original window, but it's too small to read comfortably. And if you click the View on Scribd button to bring it up in a dedicated window, it shows the first part of the list just fine, but the moment you put your finger on the list to scroll it down, the whole list disappears (turns blank) and the window becomes unusable.
(Jun 4, 2019 at 4:32)
Does anyone know why individual standings (for mens) do not match up with their race results?
e.g. listing Bruni as p10 for Fort William when he finished 8th, or listing Pierron as p9 for Maribor when he actually finished 7th.
I can only think that it might be the riders position when quali points and finals points are added together, but I'm not sure.
Also cool to see there's a close contest going on between the teams.
(Jun 4, 2019 at 10:06)
CMIIW, the system might be considering the points the rider gets during qualification, too.
(Jun 3, 2019 at 3:13)
Vali's got some new rivals to handle.
(Jun 3, 2019 at 11:38)
Anna Newkirk is serious competition but fair enough, I doubt we'll be seeing many more races this season where conditions are so tough that even the top riders are as likely to crash out as they were last weekend.
(Jun 3, 2019 at 1:53)
(Jun 3, 2019 at 9:40)
SRAM TLD RACING, with just 2 juniors (Vali and Lucas Cruz) hanging with some baller company, GT factory and Intense Factory! YEAH KIDS!
(Jun 3, 2019 at 5:32)
Man, tight this year! Even Gwin, who is 14th overall, is only like 215 points down. Anyone from the top 10-15 could take it by the end of the season!!
(Jun 3, 2019 at 6:45)
I dont see aaron pulling it off. Phenomenal racer but its not his season.
(Jun 3, 2019 at 6:55)
: I agree, but I was just making a point on how close it is. No way his ankle is even 75% by this weekend.
(Jun 3, 2019 at 8:17)
: My ankle looked very similar back in January and I still have to wear a brace on it now when I ride trails with big compressions.
Mind you, I’m about two years’ training away from being considered even athletic, let alone pro level...
(Jun 3, 2019 at 2:21)
I hope they go neck to neck up to the last run!
(Jun 3, 2019 at 13:49)
Now that I know who is protected, thank you
, what is the qualification for timed practice? Top 60?
(Jun 3, 2019 at 2:24)
can someone remind me how the protected riders system works this season?
(Jun 3, 2019 at 3:28)
If you are in the top 20 - you are protected - so every race rankings can change. Last year was a screwed up system - they're back to normality.
(Jun 3, 2019 at 6:17)
“Protected riders” to the final are:
UCI CYCLING REGULATIONS MOUNTAIN BIKE 8
1. riders ranked in the top 5 women elite and the top 10 men elite of the final world cup
standings of the previous season.
2. the best ranked riders from the current world cup standings, that are not included in
point 1 above, until a total of 10 women elite and 20 men elite are reached.
3. If any riders as described under 1. and 2. above do not confirm participation at an
event they will not be replaced.
4. Men and women junior riders ranked in the top 3 of the current world cup standings.
At the first world cup round of the season 1 there will be no protected junior riders.
(Jun 3, 2019 at 7:11)
: I thought they did away with the top ten previous year rankings.
(Jun 3, 2019 at 10:50)
: They changed the start order from last year but they didn't change the protected. That was from the 2019 rule book.
(Jun 3, 2019 at 3:52)
How good is scribed.
(Jun 3, 2019 at 8:31)
Good enough for Pinkbike
Below threshold threads are hidden
(Jun 3, 2019 at 1:46)
About time that quali didn't count towards overall.
(Jun 3, 2019 at 2:06)
I'll think you'll find it does for Elite - that's what the second (smaller) line under their scores for the weekend means. Always pays to read the fine print, my dear fellow...
(Jun 3, 2019 at 3:41)
: If you read my comment correctly you would see that I said about time it didn't count towards the overall.......every day is a school day for you dear fellow.
(Jun 3, 2019 at 4:24)
(Jun 3, 2019 at 8:51)
: Quali isn't racing
(Jun 3, 2019 at 9:14)
: So you're saying that they aren't racing to get the fastest time to get a a better start position?
(Jun 3, 2019 at 9:59)
: Except it does count. If you add the two numbers underneath (quali position and finals position, respectively), you get the overall score used for rankings.
(Jun 3, 2019 at 11:47)
Qualifiers didn't count until somewhere halfway the previous decade. But riders were playing silly games to qualify but to not qualify best (and ride a beat up track). So in finals the last rider down wasn't necessarily someone who was likely to win. To make it more exciting, they added more weight to the qualifiers (by means of points for the overall) and I think that's a good move. It is not practice so athletes are supposed to try and do well there.
(Jun 3, 2019 at 20:23)
: Syntax, my dear fellow...what, what...
You can read it both ways. To clearly have your point read correctly it may have been better to scribe it thusly;
"It is about time that quali (sic.) results were not counted in the overall"
....oh but a rose doth smell as sweet, even granted thy useth another name...
(Jun 4, 2019 at 1:15)
: Nah, it was clear first time
