[Updated with Overall] Final Results from the Mont-Sainte-Anne DH World Cup 2022
@sonuvagun: It was defo not any NZ influence on the 5-person podium. That was totally those 'ockers, "Prolly" is used colloquially in many places, NZ, Australia, Canada, UK...but should not be confused with brolly which is a colloquism of umbrella. Can we all ride our bikes now?

Video: Wyn TV from Finals at the Mont-Sainte-Anne DH World Cup 2022
@squarewheel: You already only watch 30 riders. 60 in the final (plus a couple of protected riders that crashed in qually from time to time), but the "show" on TV is only 30 riders. If they cut to 30 riders in the finals, then that is bad for the fact that a 59 plate can come through to the podium, but if they are looking to speed up they day, then perhaps 50 would work???? So long as qualifications is open to a larger number, then people still have a chance of making the "show".

@suspended-flesh: nope. Didn't have to Google that. Been racing and following this sport for 35+ years. Google didn't exist when they made the 5 person podium.

@onawalk: blame the Australians that wanted to have Cadel Evans on the podium at a World Cup/Champs back in the day when he was a junior racing against the elite pros. This was the birth of the 5 person podium in MTB and frankly, we're the better for it.

@f00bar: Yes. One through the little batch of trees, and once on one of the rock gardens.

"It Will be a Party" - Peter Sagan Plans to Race the eMTB World Champs
@HB208: No, nor was he really challenging on the sprints. IIRC he went for some primes, but never figured at the end of stage sprints. The 2022 Sagan is not the 2016 Sagan. The 2016 Sagan was racing in the TdF with an average speed of 39km/h won by Chris Froome. The 2022 Sagan raced the TdF that had an average speed of 42.4km by the end of all 21 stages. So he is 6 years older, but having to ride faster than he ever has (he still has to make the time cut offs, so a faster winner means a faster last place on the stage).

"It Will be a Party" - Peter Sagan Plans to Race the eMTB World Champs
@HB208: Sure...riding at 40km/h (plus, these days) for four or five hours for a 30-second all out effort is "sitting in the peloton". Good luck to you, Sir, to emulate that. Besides that, in his prime he would often animate the breakaway, even in mountain stages. He may have a weird voice, but I do feel you're being a touch harsh by just saying he is a sprinter - a "sprinter" is still an extremely fit, high endurance athlete in the World Tour and Continental Tour teams.

@pmhobson: To be fair, the banning of aero suits was rider initiated.
