Finals Photo Epic: Too Close For Comfort - Maribor DH World Cup 2019
@velociraptor-clintthrust: That's a solid way forward. I'm going to do the same and give clear very instructions on where to go. I'll say "when you see Rob Warner the dude with the mustache and Claudio Caluori the Swiss guy, before the riders have come down the hill, then call me to the TV. Don't mention any other names." I was up before the rest of the house to watch this, and it was spoiled!

Yea that was tweaked. Feels like I waited all off-season for these races, building up to the day. And I'm looking for the replay feed and snap! I couldn't believe what I was seeing, "Loic Bruni's winning run". Not cool. Must be a new guy at Red Bull.

Yea, that was tweaked. And it was posted not too long after the race finished. Maybe staff turnover? Blame it on the new guy? Who does that? Very disappointed with that spoiler.

Hey Red Bull thanks for providing coverage all these years. But whats with the spoiler "Loic Bruni's winning DH run - Mariborn" only a couple hours after the actual race time? It used to be "Watch the winning Men's Elite DH run - Maribor" or something like that. I waited since last year for this race and I found out the winner by spoiler. Uncool.

Chain Reaction Cycles Won't Sell You Shimano Parts if You're in North America
@Senna8730: I want to know what shops are charging just enough to barely stay in business. It seems that shops just charge MSRP-full retail. It's frustrating for the consumer. What can you do? "I can buy x product at this price online, you are selling for this price. Can you meet me halfway?" Usually the response is that "I can't buy it for that price." OK, maybe for Shimano. But what about all the other brands? Maybe the problem is the wholesaler. Maybe they aren't a wholesaler at all, but another layer of retail. I don't know.

British Mountain Biker Shot Dead Near Morzine by Hunter
According to this story from a French website: https://www.rtl.fr/actu/justice-faits-divers/haute-savoie-un-cycliste-tue-par-un-chasseur-7795182249 and translated by Google Translate: "As he rushed down a path at the edge of a wood, a 34-year-old mountain biker was shot dead by a shotgun." That account is very different than a shooting from longer range through a rifle scope, so I think an accidental shooting by this means is very plausible. The shooter is exceptionally distraught, according to some articles. If they were hunting boar, I thinks that's how it works. A boar is rustled from the woods, shrubs, etc, by a dog in some hunting scenarios, and then shot at close range by a waiting hunter. If this is the case then the mountain biker was in the worst place to be. Very tragic. My condolences to his family and friends.

British Mountain Biker Shot Dead Near Morzine by Hunter
There needs to be a fix to these deadly occurrences in France. Regardless of one's thoughts about hunters or hunting, or hiking and mountain biking, or anything, really, there is something that could be done right away to reduce the occurrences of deadly shootings. That is to restrict the hunters to certain days. I don't think it would be possible to restrict other activities to certain days, but certainly hunting could be restricted to certain days. It's a recipe for disaster to have loaded firearms in an area with other users. In the army nobody walks around on the shooting range when the range is hot. It doesn't make any sense at all to do such a thing. And even with all the controls in place to avoid shooting mishaps on the range, mishaps do occur. Because firearms are deadly and humans are involved. So for me, I would rather know exactly when and where hunting is occurring, and be somewhere else during that time. My condolences to the family of the dead mountain biker. Very tragic.

@tamallama: I was living in Savoie when the shooting occurred in late 2015 that you mentioned, killing a hiker. Absolutely tragic. I think the change in hunting days from 7 days a week to restricted days was a good, commonsense response.
