 Hoping Pinkbike can provide me with the info of how I can watch the world champs as the broadcast region restrictions are always a sh"" show.

 Ha! I remember last year and i was posting updates from the downhill club instagram account about hw to bypass it! Why do they have to make it so stupidly difficult!

 In the US you can watch on Flo Sports. I have subscription for racing through a subsidiary/partner company. Flo gets a bad rap for its cycling coverage. If Flo could cover cycling the way they cover auto racing - it would be supreme!!! Other than BMX racing/freestyle and indoor track all other cycling events are very hard to cover - course length is the issue.

 express VPN is great. I work from home on IP stuff for big companies so we use that, and some other proprietary firewall stuff from protection, but you can easily set it to whatever country allows red bull broadcast and watch.

 @ampb100: Only promise of a live stream i've found so far is Flobikes. So, if anyone knows which countries are broadcasting on whatever availble web channels, post them below.

 @dazlad: you can see it at red bull and probably need a vpn connection to be able to see it.

 Use the “Opera” web browser. It has a built in VPN and it’s actually a decent browser too. Now whether the VPN speed is good enough for a live stream is another, region dependent. matter. I seem to recall it working last time for me.

 Can’t see world champs on the upcoming events page of red bull. Can’t even find a list of broadcasters on uci website…. Where can I vpn this!

 @j1sisslow: Flo Sports couldn’t care less about the race. Last year the mic was hot before it started and between all the coughing and blowing his nose the announcer was saying to someone “why don’t they send the fastest down first and get this over with? Save us all a lot of time.” I got in touch with them and got a refund right then.

 @Lumenous1: so for southern hemispherians I think the go is to vpn Red Bull via Japan. They don't appear to have broadcast restrictions.

 My French is a little off, but I think I got the gist of it. "Go that way really fast, if something gets in your way, turn"

 "And if you want to turn, try to hold the upper line as long as possible before going into it with brakes open." Pretty much

 The short version: first section up to road gap much safer, everything after either steeper and more off camber, or completely fresh and will turn into a root fest.

I think the track builder mentioned that rain before the event would be great, but during it would make things very hard.

 Weather forecast for tonight is 99% rain so I believe it will be all good before the race, cant wait for this one!!!

 @winko: I seem to recall last year being the worst case scenario of a bunch of ran that made the track muddy, but then it dried up and the mud got scraped off and then rain again on finals day to make everything super slippery but fast rolling.

 It's going to take a lot more than rain to make this a good track.

 What is everyone doing in the USA to watch this? Is using a VPN, then going to the Redbull site the only way to watch?
I remember this last year and trying to get a free VPN to work, and stream video was difficult.
Is there a site that will stream the race for a fee? I think someone mentioned FLOW, but if I recall trying to watch stuff on that site was pretty terrible.

 Yeah, not much of build. Dirt roads up top, untouched forest floor in the middle, dried out cut block near the bottom. Grass fields in between because this is really just a ski area. If this is a showcase track of a prime mtb area in Europe, it makes me glad I live in North America.

 I hoping he gets a World Champs win, he deserves one. He was looking good last two races and I think he is gunning for a title.
