5 Things We Learned from EDR World Cup Finale Ligure 2024
@MisspentSummers: I think your wrap up email is the only thing I have read (other than what I have heard directly from racers themselves) that even touches on some of the bigger problems of this race. The results nor the "highlight video" provide any indication of what really happened in this race. Most definitely the results alone do not paint a clear picture. So big thanks to you for that. Thanks for trying to peel back some of the layers as to why this race was such a cluster f@*k. Bottom line, I feel badly for the athletes as I don't think they are being listened to or treated properly (safely). Why are more racers not speaking out? Fear of reprisals, in part perhaps.

Did you look at the data from stage 2 to stage 3? Or just the first transfer? If not, then you don't have a clear picture.

5 Things We Learned from EDR World Cup Finale Ligure 2024
Maybe the organizers are not saying what happened because then the public will make the plausible correlation that they (race organizers are at least in part responsible for the crash). Pure negligence. Is it possible the U21 female rider crashed because she was passed by a pro men? Why was there a pro men dropping in behind a U21 female? Because many racers could not feasibly make it to their assigned stage start times (which the racers communicated to the race director prior to the race), because the transfer times were just too tight, so transfer times were modified during the race, screwing up all the start times (that's what the results looked weird coming in...not solely because there were glitches with the live timing, but because indeed times of u21 and pro men were coming in at the same time, because u21 women and pro men were actually racing the same stage at the same time), which meant that U21 women and pro men were racing the same stage at the same time.....so dangerous! The race director should have listened to the athletes prior to the race when they made their concerns about the tight transfer times. But the athletes concerns were not heard, no action was taken and this is the result.

@Upduro: "Climbing should be a part of enduro but not to a point where it compromises the health and safety of the racers". Yes, this! After practice, before the race, many athletes communicated their concerns about inappropriate transfer times to the race director. No action was taken, and the mess that ensued (with multiple athletes getting injured was the outcome. That number of WC athletes DNFing is telling. No WC athlete wants to DNF and will do whatever they can to finish a race. At least some of these athletes choose to DNF rather than subject themselves to serious health issues and/or injury. And that really sucks. This race was a total gong show at best and at worse was very dangerous and unsafe. With changing stage start times mid race, miscommunication (some racers knowing about the time extension, some not), racers arriving at the same time with conflicting start times (with no time to work it out as they'd just sprinted for the past 75 minutes to make it to their stage on time) and racers from different cats dropping in at the same time, it is no wonder more athletes were not seriously injured. You cannot have a pro men dropping in 30 seconds after a U21 women on a stage and not expect there to be carnage. That is awful for both racers not to mention so dangerous. That should never happen, especially at a World Cup event. I would not be at all surprised for these athletes to feel unheard, mistreated and taken advantage of.

Paul Bas Walks Half Marathon 8 Years After Being Paralyzed at Red Bull Rampage
Incredible! These are exactly the kinds of stories that Pinkbike should be sharing with us. Sure I love following the racing as much as the next guy (gal) but I also want to learn about awe-inspiring people like this in our big bike community and their stories. It’s not just about the bike or riding or racing. It’s the people and their stories that unite us. A big thanks to Paul Bas for sharing your journey with us. And a massive congrats on your achievement. I am sure there will be heaps more coming.

Video: Raw Shore Shredding with Rhys Verner
Loved everything about this. More of this please. A lil feast for the eyes and ears. I don't know much about anything, but know I would like watching Rhys race DH! And Magnus seems almost as proficient behind the lens as he does in front of it.
