 A real shame to not see more of the course and the rides. Not exactly "live" when we see the start and then suddenly over a minute in, followed by only a couple of late course shots. Still nice to see some great riding.

 Came down here to say this. Would gladly substitute that boring pedally section for the upper section where the action was and time was being made.

 Super stoked to see Miriam Nicole and Tahnee Seagrave on the womens start list. Bummed not to see Gee Atherton. He is around so I was hoping to see him race today.

 He's on the start list I just saw.

 Joyride had fantastic camera angles and coverage, it’s a shame a race so infamous as the Canadian Open DH with the former ‘heckler’s rock’ had such little video coverage. I can appreciate the logistics involved, but this is one of the events I really look forward to and it’s not like Crankworx is hurting for money.

 How can we verify Tahnee is actually racing? One start list has her listed, the other doesn't. And then PB's fantasy list has her as injured.
  • 1 0
 She said the she is racing
  • 4 0
 She is not racing. On her instagram story explained after a few practice runs she realized she doesn’t have the confidence to get between the tape just yet. Also said her shoulder isn’t quite healed enough to take any impacts from crashing.
