Richie Rude Disqualified from EWS Tweed Valley
Penalty is over the top for the offence. Surely something like a 10-20 sec penalty would suffice. In rallying if you leave the stage/ cut out part of a corner you get a time penalty......this is no different. A DSQ should be for something serious....not this.....

Victor Koretzky Has Signed With B&B Hotels KTM... Or Has He?
One wonders if those in charge just shrug their shoulders when another rider jumps to the road; there's nothing they can do, so just accept the inevitability of it. I think many on here have wished for there to be be more than 6-7 World Cup rounds - but someone has to pay for them. Where are the big 'outside' sponsors? In an ideal world, we'd see, say 12 World Cups, and riders on big money, and not being tempted by big money road teams. Much as I watch, and like the road, I dislike the attitude that it's the pinnacle of cycling; and those that look down on MTB as not a serious sport.

@Ac282: Quite a few women seem to ride more than one discipline; current CX World champion, Lucinda Brand, rides a full road season, as well as the CX season. The Trek XC girls are all part of the Trek CX team, and will ride the US World Cups, before a break, then return for the latter part of the CX season. In fact, there were about 5-6 XCO racers in the top 15 of the last CX Worlds in Oostende.

Update: Jumbo Visma to Join World Cup XC Circuit with Milan Vader
I doubt we'll see him on a MTB; all his success in CX has been down to his power; compared to MvdP & Pidcock, his technical skills are quite a bit inferior. Being good in CX is different from being good in MTB; it's a big jump.

Video: Jack Moir's Trailside Wheel Repair from the Finale Ligure EWS
Reminds me of Colin McRae in Rally Argentina in 1998 - bent a strut, so bent it back into shape using a rock.......

Mathieu Van Der Poel Signs With Alpecin Fenix Until 2025
Sagan has no decent off road results since he was a Junior; until he proves he can mix it with the top guys, then I think the answer is - No. And in any case, I wonder just how much off road he'll be allowed......

Qualifying Results from the Val di Sole DH World Championships 2021
@lowgear: The UCI sells the World Championships as a package; so you get all the disciplines in one. So here in the UK, both Eurosport-GCN, as well as the BBC show them; as well as Red Bull TV showing the MTB Worlds. However, what always confuses me is some countries are only bothered about road/track - and won't show the MTB Worlds live, and geoblock Red Bull TV in that country. Why?

Results: Short Track XCC Qualifying - Val di Sole World Championships 2021
@hamncheez: The chance to wear a Rainbow jersey in short tracks - a pretty big deal I'd say, especially for the team and sponsors....

How to watch the 2021 Mountain Bike World Championships in Val di Sole
Last year, the BBC coverage was on the websiite, and Red button; it wasn't Warner, but the world feed - which was a lot better than the Olympic commentary.
