 Men's video didn't work for me, but the women's video....thumbnail pic is of a random woman from the crowd instead of the athletes, practically all the footage is closely cropped shots of either the terrain, a rear wheel, handlebar or a partial torso, and overall I am left with no idea what happened during the race.

 They quickly rolled up some hills. They slowly rolled down some hills. They went over a few bumps. They quickly rolled up some more hills. They essentially did all the parts of mountain biking I don't enjoy. My legs hurt now.

 Truly terrible editing. A cut every 2-3 seconds....brutal

 Terrible edit, author probably has an epileptic family member that he hates. Or he had too many cleavage shots

 Looks like a commercial for Oakley.

 @mfranzen: a lot of those guys would smoke you on a downhill. Going downhill after being above your anaerobic threshold pulling 400+ Watts is not easy.

 @CaliCol: Those guys would smoke me going uphill, downhill, running, kayaking, doing squats, or pretty much anything with physical exertion. I'm in pretty good shape but I have the utmost respect for their level of fitness. My comment by no means said I thought what they do is easy, I was just saying its not what I enjoy in riding.

 Men's video was great. Felt like I got the overall flow of the race. Women's video was too much fluff. Music edits, cell phone shots, no podium,.not anything relevant to the race. Terrible

 Is Pinkbike alone covering the Masters World Championships?

 Gun Rita is 45 years old and wins! That's insane, how the hell is that possible? Mad respect.

 How is it possible? Really? Experience, skill, training and wisdom (raw power, endurance and perseverance). You'll understand one day.

 One more lap and Batty would have passed Neff...

 Would have been interesting if she hadn't dropped her chain (?).

 Too much up, not enough down. I will never have anywhere close to their power output and endurance.
  • + 2
 Same amount of up and down. They are ‘earning’ their descends without lift/shuttle/ebike... Smile

 @bikeinbih: I've only been to a shuttle bike park once and never ridden an Ebike, but I do like to whine during every climb I do. I'm lazy maybe?
