At least they put Bart in the commentary box halfway through the women's....it was rough with just Roc and Oli.

@Supermoo: Moo is correct. Top 8 countries all get two riders and selection depends on each national body. Some pick strictly off voting others pick by a criteria (i.e. most UCI points previous year + current year).

Full Interview: Vali Höll on Why She's Back With YT for 2024
Well compare the media market of 2024 versus 1999. In 25 years, MTBing has grown in participation rate like crazy (we're talking probably 5x), but the media market hasn't grown anywhere near the same rate.

@TheR: Actually it's financially harder being single... For taxes, it's better being married. For income, obviously you get two income sources. Living costs like housing and food are also not linearly scaled (i.e. cooking dinner for two is not double the cost as cooking for one). Society is literally built around cohabitation being easier.

The way to get higher salaries is to add value to women's sports. Crying for equal pay is a wanted outcome, not equal process. Women need to figure out how to bring the same level of value to the sport...adding female fans is just one way.

It's true that the parity in women's today is much higher, making the opportunity to beat Rachel's win count that much harder. No one is winning by over 30 seconds anymore like Rachel used to. That said, the impending global recession may help Vali by forcing some women off contracts and lower turnouts due to rising costs. There could be a couple years where the field may go weaker again.

Polygon Factory Racing Looks to be Shutting Down for 2024
More likely a buy off where investment firms try and wring out every single penny as they drive the brand into the ground and it disappears. The era of true consolidation (a la Trek acquiring Klein, Fisher, LeMond, etc) is mostly dead due to intrabrand competition. It also doesn't help barriers to entry are so low in the bicycle industry that anyone with capital can start their own venture.

@NicoOfner: "What wins in Sunday sells on Monday" is really only valid for participants of racing. The truth is the % of MTBers who race today is a much smaller percentage of what it was 25 years ago. MTBs explosion in popularity has mostly come toward the recreationalist who does not care about racing at all. Participation in sanctioned events has mostly stagnated over the last 20 years despite how many new riders the sport has gained. No UCI rule change in the world or improved TV coverage will ever interest today's median demographic of rider.
