 I have no respect for this guy after he celebrated as soon as Slavik had a huge crash and could have been seriously injured. You watch the professional riders at the world cup dh and they all look shocked if a rider crashes hard.

 Move on, we've been here twice already and worked it all out.

 Wow, the shelf life of blind hate sure is impressive.

 Oh fantastic, here comes the SJW army with their "How to Celebrate" special forces lead by admirals "shoulda", "coulda" and "woulda"... time to move on, people. Everyone else has.... I'm sure you can find something else on social media to be fake outraged at.

 @scott-townes: lol fair comment by wonderboy. Was quite inappropriate to celebrate wildly while your fellow competitor could be seriously injured. Pretty good chance any 'fake outrage' may be your own...

 @scott-townes: I don't about SJW, but in hindsight this looks like a case of "you weren't there man", there's a lot of other stuff to stay pissed off about for more than a week.
Pedro is turning into #badrandy, and who doesn't like a 2D cartoon villain?
One poster said the optics weren't great, there's not much more to say. But someone call Albert Camus, a thought crime may have been committed.

 @BenPea: @BenPea: Yeah, there's enough doubt and unknown around this particular situation to just put it on the back burner at least. Benefit of the doubt VS hanging in the public square. The flip side to today's outrage is that not everyone has seen the previous coverage and commentary here or elsewhere...so it's like day1 for them. Oh well. There's no money in reaching out to all sides and creating a news piece I guess...I dunno really.

 @loopie: an actual feature-length movie adaptation is the only thing that will change minds. Chilean arthouse, not Hollywood, there's nuance in the story.

 @BenPea: Ferriera and Loathing in Las Vegas?

 @metaam: Ok, we can switch off the internets for today, go home everyone.

 @BenPea: Dude this is not about SJW or anything like that, jesus, come on Big Grin ... The guy had a a regular dick moment, which I think he maybe regrets now, but it happened and its not cool, its just bad sportsmanship. Im sure he will learn from it though..
  • + 3
 @pavlasus: I've never said sjw in my life, that was Scott. I agree with you. I initially knee-jerked by saying he lacked class, had a think, read some stuff from the people on the ground, had another think and basta, life's too short. Ferreira probably knows Slavik better than all of us. It's just insighting hatred now. He didn't piss in anyone's chips, or maybe only in the wee hours after the party ended.
I'm not his lawyer btw.
  • + 8
 Give em a break. The dude probably didn't have a great view of the live feed. I'm sure if Ferriera knew how hard Slavik went down he would shown more concern. A lot of riders washed out and didn't get hurt.
  • + 5
 @loopie: watch it back. Other than seeing the crash on the big screen, how would the guy know he won? Watch replays of the world cup dh races. There are times when the last person down the hill crashes and you see the riders looking shocked on the podium. They want to see that rider get up and make sure they are okay even though they know they have just won a world cup race.

 @BenPea: Youre right, sorry about that Big Grin I got so triggered by other people getting triggered, that I could not see straight lol Big Grin

 @BenPea: I'm with you bro!

 @BenPea: maybe you're just naif. He probably knows Slavik better than all of us, so what? The thing is, how can he know that he won without even seeing Slavik crossing the line? - news flash - he didn't swa him, he was alerted, he maybe had a tv monitor, anyway, If he didn't cross the line he had to assume SOMETHING happened to him, something bad. Well for Ferreira, who cares, let me just do my Fortnite dickish dance. I'm sorry to say, there are people that - sports people - sponsored people - who need our feedback and tantrum on this stuff, not only the views and the dollars and the taps on the back.

 "Fortnite dickish dance".

I'm using that!

Hey Pedro, nice run! Si vas para Chile....

 @t-stoff: Yeah, mission accomplished a week ago. f*ck, can people not read?

 Bruni did the same for its first WC in Andorra when the last rider crashed

 This event is unwatchable, with Claudio having to put up with a clueless announcer constanty hyping -up the lame "8 metre bus jump!", and using every cliché in the book. Annoying AF.
  • + 2
 The announcer was bad, but the the course was challenging and the huge crowd sure loved it.
  • + 5
 so many shameless, unnatural plugs too. Terrible publicity for such an awesome event. Every event for RedBull is an investment, and I can't understand why they would put an announcer on live who was so embarrassingly ill-prepared.
  • + 1
 @Flowcheckers:
He wasn't great at being an announcer but the dude can rip a bike and is not just some kook. I saw this shoot go down in person.

 Ye thanks, but how’s Slavik?
  • + 9
 He is OK, but after the crash, he was 3 min unconsciousness...more here:https://www.redbull.com/cz-cs/bike-mtb-tomas-slavik-rozhovor-po-padu-ve-valparaisu-2019-downhill?fbclid=IwAR17Nr6mTkw7ReFYJNF_8ISxP8szU8NeCJIEHnkez4VdLpqv0epkam1XlRI
He will be a spectator during Red Bull Devotos de Monserrate and it takes 3-4 weeks for recovery from that nasty crash where ligaments in his ankle were broken.

 with so much attention given to the coverage it seems an oversight that Pinbike didn't reach to Slavik for a comment on how he feels after the crash
  • + 18
 Yeah, yeah everybody is still outraged about the Slavik.... Are we just going to ignore the terrible broadcast presentation, and the one dudes commentary? He was so awkward and he kept talking over Claudio and his lack of MTB general knowledge was lacking.
  • + 13
 god damn that was just a custerf*ck! the commentary was terrible, the riders didn't know when to go and the order of the camera shots was all wrong! no one knew what was happening! You think they would have got it right after what, like 16 years?
  • + 13
 Slavik is still smiling....that was a bad crash. Just checked his insta....hard as nails!

 Pedro is NOT the first Chilean to win this event. He is the first chilean to win in seven years though.

 What's with the speeding up of the video?
The dude WON the fricken race, didn't he?

 This has been a fiasco for Redbull. I winner taking so mucb heat over conduct and all the complaining about this and that. Why do you even try? Someone should consider that we may drive them away and i just don't see another willing to replace their investment.

 This guy's celebration ruined the whole event for me...i felt bad for Slavik...and the guy was cheering and celebrating...i just switched to another show...No sportsmanship is bad for any sport...

 Cheesy, punishing commentary

 Why don't they use semi-slick tires for these urban downhills?

 Try braking on stairs with slick tires and you quickly know why.

 Brutal commentary.

 Urban mtb looks gnarly and all, but this was the first one I watched live and, other than the big stair section, it seemed kinda boring.
