Because for all but the top racers, you have more than one racer on course at once. So two racers on a two minute course only allows for showing a minute of each. And that's before you throw in any commentary breaks, course holds, rider profiles, etc. When the top men go, there is only one on the course at a time...so that the audience can see a nearly full run. Ever wonder why in a 60 minute Redbull race broadcast it takes 30 minutes to watch the first 20, then the rest of the hour to get through the last 10? I hate it too, but that's the unfortunate reality of broadcasting individual timed sports (ski racing being another perfect example).

Finals Results - Vallnord DH World Cup 2017
@AdamOdh: You beat me to it -- that was the year the Syndicate changed wheel size mid-season.

It's not about the wheel size. But it's beginning to look like the wheel size is about the RIDER. The taller guys finally have bikes that look proportional, and for Minnar and Moir at least, better-fitting bikes are allowing for an exceptional season. Danny Hart, not so much. He tried the 29er and it didn't work for him...but he is not a big guy, and neither is Troy Brosnan. Both seem to be doing their best riding on 27.5. So it may just be that which wheel size is fastest depends on how well it fits the rider, and we can stop arguing about it already. Or maybe 27.5 and 29 will both keep winning and we will keep arguing. Because that's what we do on PB!

@Inertiaman: To your last question: No, it is not at all unreasonable, but I think it IS naive. 1) Just because they have a number for ticket sales plus have a bunch of patient care records in a file somewhere, does not mean they "have" data. Assuming they will take the next step and put the two together, absent a clear benefit to the organization, is to ignore basic corporate behavior. 2) Ethical? How so? Everywhere you look they are telling their customers that downhill mountain biking is a dangerous activity. Is the Town of Whistler being unethical because they don't publish the number of human-bear interactions, or comparing human-bear versus human-raccoon interactions? 3) In your opinion yes, but I am willing to bet my DH bike that quite a few personal injury attorneys could twist that additional support to illustrate to a jury "look, Whistler KNEW how dangerous this activity is...100x more dangerous than skiing...and they STILL let their customers do it!" It's all about perspective. Yours is quite noble. The rest of the world...not so much.

If you go OTB in the air and pile drive your head into the ground for a landing, no back protector made will save you.

@Inertiaman: Gathering and publishing data costs resources (money, if you will). Why should Whistler spend resources on what you propose when no other parks are doing so. And it's not just the bike parks, it's the entire industry.
