 The EWS is slowly but surely disappearing up it's own behind. The future does not look good.

I will upvote this...

 When they added the E-EWS, I realized things were getting off course. It's a downward spiral. Too bad.
  • 5 3
 @Moorey: "Currently, the overall timing is broken"... I mean, c'mon. WTF?
  • 5 8
 @Pedal-Bin: and that means EWS as a sport is finished….righto coach.
  • 31 4
 @Moorey: Obviously not. I'm just saying that the decisions that have been made recently have been detrimental to the coverage and therefore detrimental to the sport.
Moving the coverage to GMBN and now this disaster of a live-timing website. Some people aren't keen on the E-EWS and there seems to be way more rider categories than there needs to be.
If they carry on in the direction they are heading then it wouldn't take too much for a rival race series to come along and take spotlight.
You have to at least admit that the new live timing website is terrible?
  • 13 7
 An enduro race is about 10 times more difficult to organize and calculate the times compared a DH race. The serious injury that cancelled a stage was probably the main factor.
  • 11 8
 @DoubleCrownAddict: How is it so much more difficult? They don't have to be putting TV coverage on of the whole course. Set up on a few key spots on the course like they do in DH, get a couple drones out there to start and they can build off that. Any coverage would be a huge improvement over nothing and the timing aspect doesn't need to be like DH, they can do basic math and have times update as often as they can. I would be more then happy to watch one section of the course and have it flip between a drone they are following a rider with vs nothing.

 @warmerdamj: this is confusing to you?

Instead of having a single remote start gate communicating to a centralized finish line that almost certainly has permanent and reliable internet and power infrastructure you have 5 or 6 remote start gates communicating to 5 or 6 remote finish lines that then have to relay data to a centralized tracking point. All in an area that almost certainly has suboptimal to non-existent cell reception.

It’s a minor miracle they can get timing at all.
  • 3 1
 @Blackhat: First off, that was a lot of adjectives.

Second, I said "have times update as often as they can". My post was mainly about basic video coverage and the timing can come second. I just want to watch really, instant timing updates don't seem as important in an event like this. With riders running all over different stages live timing wouldn't even be that relevant.
  • 6 1
 @warmerdamj: I would suggest to other stakeholders that timing is far more important than live video. The logistics involved in any live broadcast are stupendous. It’s not just a few cameras and a laptop.
  • 4 0
 @Clem-mk: Blind racing would be ideal. But the logistics are pretty much impossible. How do you find tracks that won’t be known to the locals, thus giving them a huge advantage over even top level pro riders? Build a bunch of new tracks? That’s a huge expense and definitely not going to fly with land use regulations on this side of the pond. Keep the venues a secret until a week beforehand? Not unless you want privateers and even big teams having to pay to book last minute travel.

 @warmerdamj: Regardless, the same issues apply to video but it’s 10x worse with the data volume and the impact of latency.

And for what? To show you 20 seconds of each riders run totally disconnected from the race context? If you want to watch fast people ride fast there’s plenty of much better footage on YouTube. But if you want to watch an actual race with any kind of context or drama then a few cameras aren’t gonna cut it.

Personally I just don’t think Enduro is suited to live viewing. That sucks and it will hold the sport back, but at the end of the day it’s square peg round hole. That goes for both video and live timing.

 Sad to think Discovery has a stake in the firm that runs EWS and the coverage has been so poor - doesn't bode well for the world cups - I just hope that there are rebuilding the team after covid and things get better.

There seems to be little to no coverage from GMBN or EMBN - the only videos so far were a couple of tech from the pits - seems weird that they didnt have anyone from the team racing to help promote the series

There was some issues with some riders being told to turn off cameras and others not, and pros given cameras for ews footage - heres an account by one of the riders told he couldn't use a camera: youtu.be/9HuOQXpwTGw
  • 6 1
 Stage 2 and 3 start very close together, did the riders who couldn't race stage 2 just traverse over, meaning they did far less climbing than those who rode stage 2? Seems like quite an advantage energy wise if so.
  • 2 0
 Looks like that’s the case.


5:44 am PDT

The EWS has provided an update saying that following the crash on stage two they have made the decision to cancel the stage for all of the Elite Men. This means that rides that have been delayed by the crash headed straight to stage three and any times from the second stage will be taken off the board.
  • 2 1
 I don't think that it is a big advantage cause the tracks are pretty short.
