Greg Minnaar ran Pierron close but ended up just under a second back.
Red Bull has big plans for mtb racing in 2024.

Red Bull has a stacked race calendar for 2024 as it aims to cover the expanded Hardline series, XC racing and Italian Urban DH action.

In the press release announcing its slate of coverage for 2024, Red Bull reveals it will have live race coverage across six months of the year. The first broadcast event kicking off the year is the new Red Bull Hardline Australia in February. Red Bull TV also starts the race season with the first of six XC race broadcasts from OKK Bike Revolution and HERO Abu Dhabi. Alongside the usual Welsh stop of Hardline and Crankworx events, there will be a Red Bull Cerro Abajo in Italy to close out the season in October.

It's not just race broadcasts that are being changed up in 2024 as Red Bull is bringing a new format to its World Cup analysis show 'Beyond the Line' and a Red Bull Bike film is coming out in October.

Take a closer look at the race calendar and Red Bull shows to expect in 2024 below.

 The Red Bull series won’t be complete until there’s a Legends category with Rob Warner vs Cedric Gracia vs Kirt Voreis vs Nathan Rennie competing in downhill, dual slalom, and best big air trick. But please just leave the commentating to Rob =P

 Need Peaty in that list too, although he sometimes pitches up to races and smokes the other old boys, Will Longden is often at the national races and takes part in Champs most years.

Will is far more communicative to use groms than Peaty though.

 As usual I'm lost with the ranting here.

AFAIK the UCI organised the MTB world cup from 1991 until 2023 when they outsourced parts of the organisation to a subsidary of Discovery.

Red Bull's involvement in that time was as a broadcast partner, and yes they did provide free coverage with a comentator who people like, but they had little input otherwise. The evil corporate suits of the UCI were the people who actually organised the races

I think for many people this is really a teenage level debate about identity. They want to be grouped with "extreme sports" rather than "cycling".

I'm happy in either camp, but I don't currently see much evidence that Red Bull are the people to save us from the UCI who presumably made a lot of good decisions (as well as the bad ones) to get the sport this far

 Still Waiting for the Red Bull DH and Enduro World Cup where riders gets to have an actual say! F*** discovery and what they do to DH and Enduro! first year did suck!
Do what they suggested in the Dean Lucas podcast and televise the last run in reverse order from 30 men and 15 women

 You guys are just a paradox. If UCI wants to reduce the amount of participants in DH and Enduro, which is necessary for the growth of the sport, by introducing team fees, semis, EDR qualifiers, point systems, etc, then everybody complains that they are killing the sport. When Red Bull comes along with invitation only events, usually limited to not more than 30 riders they become the saviours and everybody is a fan. I just don't get you serial complainers. UCI should just go ahead an kick out all privateers from WC and EDR becoming a proper professional league. Who is good enough to be there should be doing local qualifiers to get access, just like in the FWT which works incredibly well.

 @dick-pound: You make a great point. Not like the NFL allows a college team to mix in during the regular season.

I think the big takeaway from the criticisms and comments I've seen is that the UCI really needs to work on and promote various qualifying series. It's a good opportunity to expand the sport globally too. Would be rad to see DH/XC races in places like Park City that earn riders points to make the big show. The younger riders would gain valuable experience, not have to pay for the some level of travel and once qualified they'd be more prepared, likely more well known in their own country and potentially better supported.

 @dick-pound: the #1 way they've killed the sport is by charging for something that used to be free, effectively cutting viewership by what I would imagine is a massive percentage.
  • 1 1
 @pgomez: the problem is that no promoter wants to absorb the media costs for hundreds of hours of footage when most of the viewing is only for the 30 riders that make it into the finals, which is already 20 too many.
That's what kills anybody from wanting to invest in the sport.
Lets not even get into EDR which have hundreds of riders scattered along different stages and makes it almost impossible to follow.
Less riders means more and better footage, easier to sell and promote. It works for RB.
I'm sorry for all the privateers but they have no place in a WC event. I understand that it's been like that for a while, and so was the TDF like a 100 years ago. Things change and if you want the sport to progress, than it needs to become more professional.

 @dick-pound: the FWT system does not work incredibly well.

In fact the FWT struggles to stay viable year to year, and in spite of having incredible athletes, it is not really viewed as the pinnacle of the sport. Especially on the snowboard side.

 @pgomez: The viewership numbers on Youtube suggest a huge amount.
If you compare the views of the Whistler Crankworx DH this year on Redbull Youtube which got a total of 764k views to the most watched world cup semifinal, Lenzerheide which got 147k views. That equals an 80% decrease in viewership numbers
Talk about killing something.

Seems like Red Bull was actually liberated to do what they want by not showing the World Cups anymore.
  • 2 1
 @casey79: You're just strengthening my argument. As you said CW is a B grade race, yet it gets 5x the viewers the world cups get. Whys is this? because it's on a free platform. Even though the number where never posted I am willing to bet this is what the world cups were getting when they were on redbull tv (possibly even more). So therefore, moving it to a paid platform has probably decreased viewership by approx 80-100%.

In my opinion the reason for this because it's ridiculous to pay $25 plus a month for 8 races (7 next year). When your world series goes for just 7-8 rounds its completely stupid to put it behind a paywall! You're pretty much asking for no one to watch.

 Well done, now if they where only to ditch the UCI and run a proper DH series, the way it used to be, that's affordable for not just teams, privateers but also venues as the UCI is fleecing them also. UCI only see pound signs..

 @bat-fastard: I don't think so, I could be wrong, but as far as I know WDBsports have the rights to run and broadcast the series up to 2030. So they get all the revenue from entry fees, venue fees and team fees. UCI just get their license fee from WDB. I've no idea how much that is, or how the deal works.
  • 12 2
 @Point1Athletic: Exactly! People are still not getting this.....the UCI no longer run the World Cups, everything is run by ESO/WB/Discovery.......the only thing the UCI do is ensure that rules/regs are adhered to.

F1, MotoGP, WEC, WRC, etc are all run the same way; a Promoter runs it, and decides how many races there are, and where the races are held. The governing bodies make sure everything is run to the rules.....and that's it.

 @Point1Athletic: the license fee from WDB to UCI isn't pocket change its mega bucks. That's why everyone is now being fleeced. Yes WDB takes the money and runs it on behalf of UCI who get the big backhander for giving them the pleasure.

 @Starch-Anton: not exactly correct, the UCI own all the rights to it as well as being the governing body, they have licensed WBD to run it on their behalf for so many years just. In F1 for example the FIA are the body and sporting rights / series name owners but it is finically split and the commercial side is owned by Liberty Media.

 Stoked!! At last there will be something in the MTB World to watch and support in addition to the Riders Youtube channels, & IG. Sad to see what Warner Bros/Discovery have done in such a short period of time. I tried to keep an open mind, but as a English speaker in Europe, I am just hosed with zero consideration for the fans. No other choice anymore. Thank you to Redbull for keeping the flame lit!

 So RedBull TV are gonna televise the same events they did last year (with the addition of one extra Hardline) and it's the best thing ever and the UCI World Cup series is garbage? Is that what I'm supposed to think?

It's a great time for MTB racing, World Cup series growing, RBTV televising great events. From Feb to Oct. Stoked

But somehow all the Chads in the comments, will say RB are amazing for organising invitation only events with 20-30 participants (Hardline, Cerro Abajo, Rampage) but will go crazy about rumours that WarnerBros want to cut the entry field at World Cups down from 350+ to something more manageable? Cool
  • 37 2
 World Cup series is growing? DH series has less races in the upcoming season than it did last year in less countries, enduro is basically non existent, coverage is now fee based and went up in price considerably from last year meaning less people watching.
  • 9 11
 That pretty much sums it up. Ok for rb to have a tiny field to make it easy to produce a marketing package but not for the World Cup organisers
  • 8 2
 I don't think anyone is congratulating Red Bull on this somewhat meagre 4 race DH series, it's not even close to what the fans want, and neither is the UCI offering. Riders, Teams, and Fans are all suffering under the listless UCI/Discovery programme that is in the beginning of it's downward spiral.

 just because the UCI is dropping the ball doesn't imply Red Bull has to fill the gap. These are elite events for riders who have proven to be able to go above and beyond. Yes the WC series needs to get back on the rails but maybe even more important would be to get the smaller series back up there too. The iXS Downhill Cup is still going strong afaik but the UK used to have some great series too two decades ago which raised an amazing generation of racers. And as the field was so strong, loads of WC racers were competing there too (just like they do at the iXS series). So yeah, these series deserve more attention and appreciation. Those who excel there can make the jump to the elite field. But if you don't stand a chance at qualifying for the WC finals, the WC just isn't for you (yet). I doubt shrinking that WC entry field is going to leave out a lot of riders who'd otherwise compete in the finals and who already dominate the iXS DH Cup.

 @chrismac70: you forget that Red Bull is just a soda company doing mtb events, whereas the UCI, which is the global governing body for cycling, has let a broadcasting company to take control of the sport
  • 5 2
 @iiman: that's pretty normal across sports, especially motorsports. The governing body deals with rules and regs and they tender out the running and promotion of a series to an events organizing company. And to call Red Bull a mere soda company is not very accurate, they own a media company, two F1 teams, multiple soccer teams etc.. and run around 250 events around the world each year, all of it for the purpose of marketing.

 @trellis-opportunity-red: In this context a Chad would be a guy (it's always dudes) who, instead of taking the evidence available and applying a nuanced appraisal of the evidence in the context of WDBsports having an eight year long contract. they instead just jump on the bandwagon of bashing everything the World Cup series is now, even though on the Dh side we had some of the best racing ever in '23
  • 6 6
 @MrNally: as said, keep the weird "chad" chat to the 15 year olds on 4chan mate.

In terms of evidence available, we have a shrinking series, teams pulling out and dropping riders, the rumoured removal of an entire disciple, enduro, to focus on a deeply unwanted category EEDR, an awkward semi finals that the racers and fans dislike, and terrible commentary.

 @L0rdTom: @L0rdTom: I will use whichever words I chose, thank you! (p.s. I have no idea what 4chan is)

As for the evidence, well we had eight DH World cups in 23, seven in 24. Compared to eight in 22 and only 6 in 21 (five venues) and only 2 venues in Covid year 20. So things really ain't shrinking that much.

As there is also XC to think of (which always gets more TV views than DH), then we actually have five new venues for the 2024 series, Poland including DH and Enduro.

So my hunch is that the new organisers will stagger the growth and introduction of new venues and extra rounds. So instead of having loads of new venues for all disciplines in 24, they'll have more for Xc and then in 25 have more for DH, eventually getting both XC and DH up to 10 or more races each over say 12-14 venues.

Sadly my other hunch is that to make this happen they'll ditch enduro.

Just my take though, you can keep being the chad you are and tell me how to speak ;-)
  • 2 1
 I didn't mean to upset you about using the name Chad, I was just trying to help you get taken seriously.

Both the '20 and '21 season were heavily affected by covid, so yes next year has reversed the trend downwards. Do you have any available evidence of investment into 10 rounds of racing in new venues to a smaller viewership base, or is it all just a whimsical hunch?

 @MrNally: imagine for a second that the FIFA hands broadcasting rights of football to WB, then WB changes the structure of the matches, then limits the number of countries allowed in the world cup and then, makes every player wear a go pro. How would that go

Even if we leave the suscription model aside, when Redbull was the broadcaster they never made changes against anything that was in the very roots of the sport.

And whatever else Redbull has going on, they're a soda company, all that stuff on the side is actual advertising.

(2023 had record entries at almost all DH venues) and the system for using a GoPro for practice or finals is the same as it always was! So I don't see your point?

And I vividly remember riders complaining HEAVILY in the RB era, especially around jump and course safety, tapping and course marking issues, the wooden finish line jump at snowshoe one year caused Bernard Kerr a social media meltdown. With many riders complaining about how RBTV wanted the tracks to be faster for TV etc...

 @L0rdTom: Yes and 2018 had 7 rounds, 2019 had 8 rounds. It's been a pretty stable number for years. So the current organizers going back to rounds certainly isn't the destruction of the series like some people say. Especially when they are bringing 5 new venues in one season.

My hunch isn't whimsical, it's just how I see things, WDB/ESO were handed the 2023 schedule as most of those races were already confirmed before they took over. In the first year that WDB sports are actually organising the calendar we have 5 new venues. More than the UCI ever brought in on their own in one year. So I'm just being optimistic.
  • 3 3
 @MrNally: Technically we had 16 races. Semi finals are considered a race. They literally doubled the amount of racing last year. They literally gave the fans the extra racing we've been asking for and yet all the freeloaders keep bitching. They figured out a more economical way to double the amount of racing...put it this way if they increased the venues to 16 the even with old team entry fees it would be way more expensive to participate in a full season. Not to mention all the travel and lodging costs that would literally double the cost of a season. Not surprised people can't use logic and reason and apparently have no idea how math/economics work anymore.
Y'all should be mad that Red Bull gave this shit away for free and conditioned you to expect a handout for something that costs millions to operate a year. Stop being cheap bastards or STFU, that is unless you paid last year then at least you put some skin in the game.

If RB picked up something like IXs cup DH coverage, alongside Crankwork's they should have a real DH coverage again, gaining a ton of exposure to an already good circuit (most of IXS tracks are WCDH level already) and maybe attracting more big names.
While I really like the idea of a second hardline, it's the real only addition to last year calendar

And yes, same thing for Ducati. You really think the responsible managers at Audi actually care about motorcycle racing?

 There are a LOT of people at Ducati that care deeply about racing, and there are a lot of people at red bull that ride and race bikes, love event management and were probably gutted when the contract wasn't renewed. It's not like companies are just a board of managers surrounded by robots, there are passionate staff all over these companies that love their jobs and what they make. I'm willing to bet that the number of design engineers working at specialized that don't love riding bikes is close to zero.

But I doubt they are making the calls on whether to run hardline, if they've even heard of it beyond a footnote on a report. But the managers who receive their budgets and are deciding what mtb events to support, or Dakar, or Hard Enduro etc, they care about the sports they manage. I only know two people who work at RB and they are likely to be biased, but that's certainly the picture they paint.

 Whatever their motivation, name another mainstream company that's done more for the sport than RB. Any company that spends money sponsoring MTB is doing it for exposure.
