 I’m glad I didn’t go to blackcomb to see this. Boring af. Worst course ever. Bring back the 4x and stop this crap

 You're not riding your Topstone Neo?

 @danielfloyd: Topstone NEO Lefty...but no...its too aggressive of a bike for this event...there is no gravel to contend with so the eDirtJumper will have to do!

Be safe be well,

 It's a nice experiment but the corners need to come back it's really not that interesting watching just a straight shot.

 What the f@ck, is this supposed to be a pumptrack race ?

 The corners are the fun part...

 What is this course lol? The one in the picture for the videos looks so much more epic. A pumptrack challenge with no corners?!

 Is this the all new event? Straight rhythm for DJ? You know, it takes skill to corner too...

 Might be the most boring CW event of all time. Pumptracks, hardtails & Dragracing do not go together. Bring back the turns.

 Super lame. The DS course sucked too (let’s add gravel sections???). Is this Vail’s doing?

 Straight rhythm?

 So I guess the idea was to increase excitement and make the event more compact by having head to head racing, which is not possible on a regular pump track. Pump tracks are awesome but I've never been stoked about watching races. I don't get speed and style either. I wonder what the riders think, presumably the organizers do listen to them I reckon they do a really progressive 4X event next year.

 I think the opposite of you so ya know. Preferences and all that. I love watching pumptrack and speed and style. Just not this pumptrack.

 This must be the result of 'Merica's drag racing influence on pump track. Soooo boring...
  • 4 1
 These contestants are the most uncreative soapbox derby racers I have ever seen.

 What is this?

 Lame. Bring back corners or even better: bring back 4X to the big screen

 Note to Rotorua. Keep it as is. Tight and twisty

 omg whyyyyyyy crankworx/whistler why...that is not exciting at all. i skipped to the finals right away. experiments are nice but this is a screw up from the beginning..

 the timing was pretty fucked up, rider coming in visibly in front of others were times behind. and i guess lanes were also not really the same. hope they go back to the old format.

 how did you managed to kill pumptrack?!?

 I wanted to watch a classic pump track. This was rubbish.

 Holy moly the course is a snooze fest

 This format was trash. Pump track is normally one of my favourite events but I didn't even bother watching the end of this.

 WTF! Why start off the broadcast with a spoiler from dual slalom? I didn’t watch it yet! f*ck me, no f*ck you!
  • 4 1
 Bring back 4x!

 why is Crankworx doing pretty much everything besides 4X? did something happen in the past that they avoid it so much?
  • 1 0
 @phuq: All I can think is that 4x makes it super easy for crashes/contact/injuries to happen and so maybe they're avoiding it from that perspective? I know it's a pretty weak point given it's so easy to crash in all the disciplines anyway but I'm struggling to think of any other reasons

 If we are going Straight Rhythm style throw in a scrub/spine, some jumps, and a longer course to make things interesting.
