Jenny Rissveds to Miss World Champs
@russthedog: Indeed, you'd think that, right? On the other hand (I'll admit that right here, right now, ok?): I don't know the first thing about what it actually means (payment wise) to be a professional XC mountainbike racer, so something like that does seem plausible/possible. Speaking from a triathlon perspective (something that I have slightly more insight) I can say, that the amateurs from where I live are dependent on every last cent they can get from wherever so in my mind it wouldn't be unspeakable to clash over something as mundane as money when it comes down to who gets to race Worlds and who doesn't.

Jenny Rissveds to Miss World Champs
Man... those are some rather crisp and clear words right here... This is something you don't see everyday. What a shame for Jenny. From an athletes point of view it must be really tough to be in that position and have one guy just completely screw it up. Also, the decision from Swedish Cycling not to send anyone over to Cairns must affect not only Jenny, right? That is some grade A BS behavior right there. Also, I think it's good to see someone who's not afraid to point out deficits in an organisation, as well as not being afraid to pinpoint it to one person in particular. Most of the time you get that 'Not going to call someone out, blabla' line, but not with that guy. Seems like emotions are running high, this time. Still, hopefully this can be resolved, all the best to Jenny and the team! Also, a word to the UCI: Get your heads out of your a**es and do something about this, what do we even have a governing body for cycling for, if not for something like this!

Team Video Roundup - Mont-Sainte-Anne DH World Cup 2017
That dude at 4:25 in the Canyon video, the one Mark talks to... where do I know the fella from? I feel like I've seen the guy before but on a different team...?

Nevermind, found 'em... Sometimes CTRL + F doesn't seem to work properly with those result lists... Anyone know what happened to Maes?

Right, it appears I'm not quite up-to-date, but where are Graves and Maes?

Final Results - Lourdes DH World Cup 2017
Right, honest question: Why the one hour break between the women and the men? Because to me it seems like this tragedy, which was the men's run, could have easily been avoided by starting right after the women; You know, just like they did it last year. And despite all of that, that's one more hour of waiting, where I don't really see a reason why they would do it this way. Any ideas?
