 Thanks for the Lycra coverage! It may be XC, but it’s still MTB.

 You're welcome. Would you prefer to see XC or gravel racing content in the future?

Be safe be well,

 @smartfartbart: We're slowly moving away from covering anything that requires 120mm of travel or more! And I have a big surprise for you, next week @mikekazimer will be reviewing a solar powered chamois! The chamois uses the suns rays to charge your eGravel bike battery while you pedal (spoiler alert!).

Be safe be well,

 Maybe I'm watching these highlights 'wrong', but I think it would be awesome to be the guy on the E-Bike filming the lead groups as they suffer up the 20% gradients. Probably scary as sh!t on the way back down trying to keep up with an attack to the finish line... and big kudos to the camera bike who didn't run over dude on the bridge after that crash. We've all watched enough Friday Fails to know how easily that can happen.

Hopefully more sales mean more races have enough sponsorship support to offer daily coverage like this!

 Stage 3 recap, that fall snapped the dudes bars? Maybe I didn't see the severity of the fall right but it didnt look that bad, you'd think those bars should hold up better.

 Lots of unfixable flats and chain problems.
