Madison Saracen to End its Factory DH Team After 2024 Season
@chrismac70: You’re right. Teams are charged far more for entry to races now than they ever have been. Each race is paid for separately, as I understand it. I can’t see how limiting the places in finals can be sustainable.

Madison Saracen to End its Factory DH Team After 2024 Season
I’m sure it isn’t the only factor, but the way DH racing is run currently must be so challenging for teams. Huge money, massive setups for 7/8 races per year. You could be the 31st fastest rider in the world and get next to no exposure. Very difficult to justify a race team when there’s such a high chance of not even getting to race on race day!

Elite Qualifying Results from the Les Gets DH World Cup 2024
@commental: Having been to Ft William this season, they bizarrely broadcasted the majority of 1 rider’s run in every 3 or 4, completely missing the others. It was actually difficult to follow when stood by the finish line. Hate what they’ve done to the EWS (or EDR). I’ve been to loads of mtb events over the years and thought the Tweed Valley EWS was the best of the lot. Great day following the race around, good atmosphere and felt more involving than a DH WC. It isn’t a broadcast-able discipline, instead a solid race overview/highlights (similar to before) works for me.

Elite Qualifying Results from the Les Gets DH World Cup 2024
@commental: I could be mistaken but I thought the whole idea of semis was that they’d be broadcasted, similar to sprint races in F1. For me, either broadcast semis and finals, or get rid of semis and broadcast the full top 60/80 on race day.

Any sign of qualis and semis getting televised, as promised? Are we still desperately trying to make DH like F1? F1 which televises all practice and qualifying.

If you’re not going to stream the semis what’s the point in them?

How to Watch the 2024 Mountain Bike World Cup [Update: Staylive Offering Access in New Zealand, South Africa & More]
I wouldn't mind paying £7 per month if the money was used to help privateers race at the highest level, not push them out. Formula DH is shite.
