 These data are great and I love the posts! Just a thought, but to better visualize the top rider results, it may be clearer to normalize all data to a global or average time or split. Would better allow one to see when the lead rider makes a mistake relative to the rest.

 Agreed normalize to the perfect run would be great

 How about the fact that Booker, Rude and Lukasic all finished on the same 1/10th of a second and Rude/Booker were in a dead tie all the way to 1/1000th of a second. Doesn't get much tighter than that!

 yet coverage outside of PB is terrible. a shame. having grown up playing traditional sports, i can't explain how fascinating bike racing is, and how amazing it is - how close etc...how hard. the fact an organization cannot figure out how to cover it is unacceptable in 2023...Come on redbull.

 @stunnanumma1: i think you’ve got an insight. Imagine another person or your old self with their traditional sports background and explain enduro to them during an event. Ok it’s a race, who is ahead right now? Who’s behind them? What’s the difference? Is that a lot? A little? Are they going to catch up? Ok who’s ahead now, and why?What are they doing differently? What should i be paying attention to? EWS never figured out how to make this a story a person can engage with until after the race is over. DH uses split times and play-by-play and it’s still pretty rough viewing sometimes. Enduro has challenging problems to solve to be a sport fans consume live. And if two days is going to be distilled into a 10 minute edit retrospectively based on who won, it raises questions about the business case for all those riders and all that sponsor signage and the huge percentage of the whole multiday thing that doesn’t make it into the recap people later see.

 How does the 'Perfect Race' measurement work? How do they calculate the 'perfect race'?

 The winning time for each stage is taken.
