 The coverage is awful. The race schedule is poorly planned. Like 3 months between races in the middle of the season? The race format is pretty vanilla. When I hear "the spirit of enduro", it makes me throw up a little in my mouth. There's nothing to get excited about.
  • 2 2
 It's weird, in previous seasons they would do a full recap show, but they seem to have given up on that. What's also weird is that the previous shows have been deleted from their YouTube channel...There's got to be something going on behind the scenes?

 @northernwig: The older full shows are on Pinkbike's YouTube if you're still keen to check them out. www.youtube.com/watch?v=yAcBZ51LIKo

 @bashhard: essentially you think it will be shot because you have to pay for it but if you want good coverage the money has to come from somewhere. Unfortunately races such as ews there would be no money for anyone in making good coverage. It’s as simple as that it’s about the bottom line

 Like the last EWS they dont have the 4th or 5th stage listed on the online results page. Amazing they missed that and added it during the race for the last ews only to have it happen again. Someone should drop a dime and let chris ball know he might want to update his site, liks an hour ago

 @Jimmy0: A livestream is done as it's doing. You can't tell me they can't have one person at the finish of each stage livestreaming what's happening. I thought Discovery was already in charge of EWS, and they were picking up the UCI world cup next season only. Although that might explain the terrible coverage and website. The current organization would have zero interest in putting money and effort at self promotion if they are just going to give it all up to Discovery next year. Better for upper management to skimp on every expense so they can give themselves a big bonus for this year.

“ The CNN+ streaming service terminated after just 21 days in operation. CNN executives had originally hoped to bring in around 2 million subscribers in the US, but after the services' launch fewer than 10,000 people were using CNN+ on a daily basis.

To recoup losses generated by CNN, parent company Warner Bros. Discovery is looking to sell programming created for some of its other services, such as HBO Max. They're also broadly cracking down on expenses such as spending money on work celebrations. ”

They’re hoping we’ll fill the subscription roles and underwrite their losses…
  • 6 1
 @SteepJobs: They pulled the plug on CNN+ because it should never have been launched in the first place. It was a weak, copycat offering which wasn't going to work. It was allegedly a vanity project that had got out of hand and incoming management just wanted to minimise the losses.

 EWS is shitting the bed IMHO.

First of all. Who the hell thought it was a great idea to schedule this race on the same weekend as the World Cup races.

Secondly, there is almost zero coverage prior to the event to create a sense of anticipation and buzz. The pre-race coverage used to be great.
Now it's results first and then a ( admittedly pretty decent video wrap up) a few days after but honestly it doesn't do it for me.

Jack Moir's vids are great but relying on his edits as "coverage" is friggin weak Pinkbike!

Savor this last WC season folks. It will never be the same (or better) after this.

 I'm not trying to be snarky, but a full list of elite results would be much more useful than stage-by-stage times for the Masters. If the EWS don't have a list you can import, please take the time to type up the top 20 or 30, it's not a big job.

 PDF downloadable here - www.enduroworldseries.com/race/ews-round-4/ews-whistler/202189/results

And another bit of feedback - in the spirit of helpful criticism again - I really don't think the "live stage updates" you post on here serve much purpose, they're not frequent or complete enough to really provide useful coverage and then when we dip into the article later, it's a confusing mess.

If you want to offer more useful live updates, maybe do more on the story of the race. Who's crashed or had a mechanical and lost time? More interpretation and less stats for the sake of it.

I’m sure someone could gather the footage and interviews and put together a quality product.

 @Denyer: Thanks; the joke should have been pretty obvious for those who've read anything on this site in the past few years about hydration or Richie Rude. The origin story: www.pinkbike.com/news/an-update-on-richie-rude-and-jared-graves-failed-drug-test-ews-france.html. Never did I try to dish on @skiandmtbdirtbag. Having no water in a race is obviously no joke.

 @AndrewHornor: He crossed the line with air in both tires on the last stage, must have stopped and fixed it.

 according to his Insta he blew a tire

 @brookscurran: I just looked on Instagram and that's exactly what happened. He blew a tire off. So disappointing and I'm sure it's not the way Jesse would have wanted to win, either

 @AndrewHornor: Pretty fair to say Jesse was on another level this weekend, he beat Richie on every stage except 3 where Jesse flatted. Definitely not the way he would have wanted, but a proper win nonetheless.

 The Trek Factory Racing Enduro curse is strong, Look at all the men talent they had through the years and everyone dipped in their results, Florian Nicolai, Lewis Buchanan and Ruaridh Cunningham.

 Richie Rude must have had a mechanical or he is hurt, because he finished in 44th I believe, which is way off his pace.

 Rocky altitude, still the best Enduro race bike.
  • 2 0
 I ride an Altitude so I can tell you with confidence it's not the bike
  • 1 0
 @AndrewHornor: I've ridden/owned an altitude, after trying about 6-7 bikes since, i regret selling the altitude.

If your not confident or like how it rides, somethings not right. - Every reviewer of that bike loves it, enduro-mtb, pinkbike and even JKW.

If you want proof, go ride something else for more than 1 ride, youll want the rocky back.
