 Can we replace Red Bull with GeeBeeBee media for the UCI World Cup media provider please?
  • 21 14
 something tells me GeeBeeBee couldn't afford 1 minute of Redbull's bandwidth

 Probably right @simooo, don't know why you've been so neg propped, not like it was a diss. Not that I know how much Redbull's bandwidth costs, but I bet it ain't cheap.

 Yeah, sadly we don't have budget to spend on getting the Red Bull Matador aerial display team either...

 Guys, the woods track is only open for BDS events. We have worked very hard to develop this track, please do not go up there as you may mean permission is withdrawn. Also do not cross the fields at the top. The farmer has a big shot gun!

 I think it's a bit of a joke that first prize for the elite's was £250. I know they don't do it for the money per se, but £250 would get you a cassette these days. It was even worse for the other categories. Some of those massive cheques were for £40!!!

Whilst sponsorship for all of these guys and girls is fantastic and free bikes help, it doesn't sit right that there isn't some more money available. Even smaller British bike companies like Orange have £1.5m in profit sat within their companies and over £0.5m sat in cash in the bank. I'm not picking on Orange - all the numbers are available from companies house for any British company.

 do you tink that those values for orange are much? probably a big company like specialized or giant makes that several times a day
also they receive in pounds or euros? the cheque was in euros

 Had such a good race day heckling, being able to watch the fastest racers in the world tear up such an awesome track for free is amazing. How many other sports can you do that in? This vid is a fantastic recap - GeeBeeBee setting the bar for domestic race coverage.

 That steep section looks insane, are any World Cup tracks steeper? They sure don't look like it from the coverage. Also, did Beaumont leave GT on his own or did they drop him? Haven't read anything about that.

 Good on Joe Smith. He's a committed and well trained rider. Good to see it paying off. Mike Jones coming up, too. Fort William next? What a race that will be!

 @si-paton do the pro women race before the jr men in Britain?
  • 1 0
 Yes because the UCi class the men as one category for Junior, Senior, Expert and Elite so that block has to run together. Si..

 50-1 two stroke engine mix (petrol to oil)?. Reference to their MX bikes?, or those nutters in the crowd with chainsaws?
  • 3 0
 From the Tech coverage at Fort Bill "If you don't know what 50/1 means then think about pre-mixing fuel for your 2-stroke engine, but replace oil and petrol for vodka and your mixer of choice."

 I'll need to get some 50/50 stickers made up then!
