Good Month / Bad Month: Exciting Racing, Payouts for Privateers, Injuries, Accidents, and Drug Testing - June 2019
Good analysis in most respects. PB has always been this way, as far back as I can remember.. It's a content pig. whatever from where ever. And it subservience to the advertiser. MBA was the same back in the day.. reviews were paid for, so PB is just continuing this tradition. If you don't like it? go elsewhere. Vital is a great source BTW. Gravity culture is a weird one to figure out. On one hand it has a 'balls to the wall' carefree image it wants to present, but on the other is as conservative as I've seen. Go figure. The doping thing is indeed case in hand. EVERY road athlete has to know the rules. Yes it is a culture that has a lot of doping, but you ask any roadie what legal and illegal, they know . The officials and organizers too. Saying "I didn't know" is well amateur hour, and most of the riders come from the World Cup circuit and are knowlegable about doping. "Better to ask forgiveness than permission" is no way to run EWS if it wants respect from the UCI , IOC and federal bodies (cycling sports getting into Olympics going forward take note). Chris Ball indeed, where are you. You came from the UCI and know the rules. Hanging the riders out to dry is not a way to run an organization. AND it was bound to happen. The event organizers should have stepped up and made sure the rider was looked after in all ways.. not just provide a doctor who didn't know his way around the UCI list of prohibited substances. So EWS needs to get out in front of this going forward, that is if it wants to be considered more than a place retired DHers go to when they are not longer competitive on the World Cup circuit.

Interview: Martin Maes - "I'm Not Guilty... I Just Made a Stupid Mistake"
@SpecializedFTW: Correct. There is a process and as a UCI vetted event this process has to be followed. The organizer(s) of the EWS should be making all entrants apprised of the what, when where and why. The TUE should have been applied for within hours of the treatment. Failure to follow the rules is well, what Maes is dealing with.

How to Watch the Cairns 2017 MTB World Championships
The way World Champs works (all BTW, not just MTB). UCI offers up broadcast rights to a country for a fee. Rogers, CBC, Shaw, Bell etc can all bid (buy for a fee) to broadcast the rights. If they do not buy? then there is a blackout in effect. Work around is purchase and install a VPN (I use Tunnerl Bear), then you can say you are anywhere in the world that has purchased the rights, and "Bob's your Uncle".. watch the live show.
