 Lmao not available in country. Why? I just need someone to explain to me why region locking is good for the business side of the sport? Why is YouTube repeating all the worst aspects of television? We really f*cked up the idea of the 'globalized internet'.

 So good to relive this, until the last 2 videos that "the uploader has not made available in your country." Selective media rights are always such a bummer.

 does anyone know how the live split works? do they carry gps trackers or something?
  • 1 1
 the have a sensor on their bikes (usually installed on forks), and pass throw gates during raceruns... but that it's just for the show, the official time comes from Tissot chrono
