 Anyone in the USA using Max know when and/or how to watch the Elite Men's and Women's Semi finals tomorrow? They are not listed under upcoming events??

 @TStruckMTB: I just signed into Max yesterday and saw the events. Tried searching for "UCI" and it popped up.

 @WalrusRider: I just tried that and I got 3 upcoming shows 1) Jr Women 5/5/24 3:25am 2) Jr Men 5/5/24 4:00am 3) "Elite" 5/5/24 4:45am Nothing on May 4th for the semis ucimtbworldseries.com/events/fort-william

 @TStruckMTB: Strange, it looks like they made some changes. Yesterday there were two separate events one for Elite men and the other Elite women. Now it's just Elite.

 Finally! And deserved

 @TStruckMTB: It seems they're either not broadcasted at all, or the info on it is the worst ever. The semis are not in the upcoming list on Eurosport either (the Sunday finals schedules are there). YouTube also doesn't show them as upcoming. Semis have also not been mentioned at all during all the hype posts and schedule updates on social media (UCI or affiliates), even though people are asking about it. I don't know what the hell is going on, but once again the communication from WB is useless. I mean I did get the idea that semis are shown live this season too, or was I just making false assumptions?
  • 1 0
 @donimo: Exactly my thoughts too and unless I missed something, the semis are supposed to be televised live but in typical UCI/WB shit show fashion, I can not find it for the life of me. If I see a change on Max I will update this post.

 Erice with a 5 minute gap to second.

 Are these times... Accurate? Were junior women having to like dodge each other on their runs? How is 2nd to 5th 10-15 minutes?
  • 12 0
 The riders session sections, then chat and look at lines, then do another bit, then talk through that etc. lots of riders rarely do full runs.

 @weeksy59: mmm that's pretty rare for TT runs. more so practice. never heard of riders doing that, even junior womens.
  • 8 0
 @lepigpen, Gwin used to do it all the time - if I remember correctly, he rarely put down a full timed run before qualifying.
  • 1 0
 @lepigpen: you can see that exact thing happening in the Course preview video, and to be honest, in tons of trackside and POV videos from practice sessions of the past.

 @rarerider: im confused. are we talking about timed training runs or practice?
  • 1 0
 @lepigpen: watch to couse preview
  • 1 0
 @karatechris: those are practice runs. not timed training. im so confused do people think TT runs are just peoples best practice runs? they set up the timers and ensure safe intervals for TT (mostly to make sure timing is working tbh)
  • 1 0
 @lepigpen: Just because you have not heard of it, that does not mean it's not common practice.. (It clearly is).

Why should riders not treat some (or all) of their timed training runs like regular practice if they feel like it? They get preciously little time on the course and just because they set up the timers, that does not force the riders to care about them.
  • 1 0
 @finnspin: I'm aware not every rider takes TT runs seriously. But honestly most riders try to get to a point of doing T to Bs with no stops to get a feel for race runs and fitness for qualies. That's basically what TT is. Practicing a qualy run for both the riders and organizers.

My only question was did a logistics issue happen during the womens juniors because. It seems like one rider got a eral run in and everyone else had some serious struggles. I know they may have been ran earliest so it's possible no one wanted to push a T to B with so little warm up.

This conversation is getting so off track lol. It's def weird that almost EVERY OTHER DIVISION had a normal TT. And the junior gals seem held up.
  • 1 0
 @lepigpen: nothing unusual in the results, if anything more riders than usual completed full times runs than usual. It might make sense if you think of the track: most riders have ridden the core of this track several years. The sections with significant changes this year are all in very high speed sections.....on a relatively flat course where getting back up to pace can be a challenge. The exception to all of this would be the Juniors who are seeing the course for the first time....and that creek gap, and lower course are pretty intimidating.
  • 1 0
 @pwkblue: That's a good point. Especially if they were run super early as well. I'd spend 5-10 minutes looking at that creek pull as well lol

 How the heck did Asa make it to the race - didn't he break his hip 6 weeks ago!
  • 1 0
 Honestly shocked Asa isn’t up there, given that POV. Hope he’s ok

 Within a couple second on the first split, then 5:11 back at split two and he only dropped one second to finish 5:12 back. Seems like he got held up, or crashed with no major injury if he was able to maintain pace after that first huge gap.
  • 2 0
 With his injury he is probably sore AF. Just be thankful he is here at all.
  • 2 1
 How come no videos on the race yet? Vital raw? Pinkbike?
  • 7 1
 No Dialed. No Vital raw or track walk. No PB. It sure feels like the UCI and WBs have done something shady.
  • 1 0
 @Jvhowube: Jordi / the FOX team is on the Downhill podcast this year. So, I think Fox cut Dialed and is hoping the podcast sort of fills the gap.
  • 8 0
 @TStruckMTB: There is a WynTV, all the riders have their track walk videos up, course preview on the PB homepage, Ben is posting on Instagram and YouTube shorts from trackside, vital with the pit vids, and I am sure once they edit the tape (it's only 6PM there) VitalRaw will be up. If you barely look you can find things. You may also be thinking the videos should be out already, but this round the race is on Sunday not Saturday so everything is shifted a day.
  • 2 0
 @Jvhowube:
No way! This sucks big time!
Dialed was a part of the whole build up to the race and all the inside BTS was great. Not to talk about the quality of the editing. Really bad decision by FOX to cut it.

 @pisgahgnar: Interviews, trackside commentaries and first person pov riding are no replacement for raw riding videos from 3rd person pov though.
