 No way! Weather delay at Hardline? Would be surprising if that DIDN’T happen.
Maybe eventually someone will figure out this competition needs to be like surfing and freeski comps where there’s a window, not a fixed time.

 THIS 1000x THIS

 I bet the delay is WBD/UCIs fault somehow

 Bingo. They have similar issues w/ weather in wind picking up in afternoon at Rampage, and for that matter, Crankworx riders were striking over comp timing & wind as well. As a fan, I want to see ideal conditions for athletes to push their full potential, and couldn't give two poops if the coverage is live: set an early window for race/comp runs when wind is likely at its best, and then broadcast footage whenever it makes sense.

 Oh look, PB commentators bitching. LOL it went off, best weather yet and best Hardline yet.

 And this is why we need Rob in Downhill so bad.
  • 4 1
 @ThrillPhil46: we do. He still can't remember/read the splits from one run to the next though

 Wish they had an alternate commentary track that is just Rob completely uncensored. Nice and PC for the sponsors on the main feed, and him completely unhinged on the alternate.

 @dotman: what can’t even get the timing running for the broadcast starting?

 @jimmythehat: didn't even notice the timing jitters, could tell who was fast and who wasn't by the looseness!
  • 2 1
 @dotman: yep first two or three riders were all +1.118 on Brayton who clearly sent it hard, it that was discovery we wouldn’t have heard the end of it

 Rob's voice is just so sweet, i've missed the voice of downhill!

 Yeah! Rob and Rachel - dream team!
  • 40 1
 Uhm, it was Tahnée in the box w/ Rob today, and she *nailed* the tech commentary, delivering a silky smooth Ying to Rob's exuberant Yang.
  • 8 0
 @powturn: I thought she did a wonderful job. I really dig her commentary. She has a keen racer’s eye.

 Well, in fact it was Rob and Tahnee, and Rachel interviewing. All good.

 That’s UK’s weather for you. The worst in Europe by far.

To be fair everytime I go riding in Wales there's always a named storm.

 For the love of Christ can this broadcast please stop going to zeppelin view right before a rider is about to smash that one left hander
  • 2 1
 This done my head in. The sharp left after the cliff drop and the right hander after the 90 footers. Replays missing the maddest bits of the run aswell

 Tommy G showing exactly why the canyon gap was a bad feature.
  • 5 1
 What a surprise. Can’t understand why it’s scheduled for the 1430, as everyone in the area knows the winds tend to pick up in the afternoons, but they keep doing it.
  • 13 1
 And then they built a canyon gap that is completely exposed to weather and wind with no alternative route and test it for the first time 1 week in advance. They are optimistic folks I guess.

 Dan is planning an indoor version for next year.

 Broadcast schedule. Run it in the morning and the USA is still in bed

 @finnspin: no alternative route? What where they riding today then?
  • 1 2
 @mi-bike: A mix with the new and old track with a connecting section the actually built only a few days ago, only AFTER testing the canyon gap and scrapping it from the track.

 Timing on point as always. Time splits always showing at +1.118 for every rider...

 I took a risk and came to the gym first, knowing I wouldn't make it back quite in time, planning to watch from the start when I got there. As I'm just about to leave the gym I thought I'd check the situation here just in case and indeed it seems I'm in no hurry to get back home Big Grin

 @donimo: I just hurried down from the trails at the tarmac road and sure enough, my still slippery wheels slid like soap. I'm happy that there's only minor abrasions. My cellphone took a hit but still works under broken glass front and rear. Eek

 If it’s canceled will they just use the qualifying runs as final runs?
  • 1 0
 likely yes
  • 2 1
 @snomaster: if that’s the case maybe next time they will film/broadcast the qualifying runs so us minions can get a gander of the madness.

 Man, coverage was awesome, Rob on song with his dropped kebeb. Racing awesome. Redbull and Ronan both killed it.
  • 2 0
 I know he's bummed that he couldn't finish the run, but Matt Jones blowing up the berm, and his tire, was awesome.

 Shreddy as ever! Best of luck riders :^]

 What happened to the ladies ? No one manage to make a full run?
  • 13 1
 No, but I don't think they ever thought they would. I haven't seen footage of the 90s or the cliff drop being done this year. Lots of progress though. Impressive.
  • 3 1
 @thingswelike: The 90 footer was definitely done by a few of the ladies earlier in the week.

 @thingswelike: Hang on...that was just the lilly pad now that I think about it...my bad.

 The race is a side event, the main appeal of hardline is pushing the limits of whats possible. And each time the women turn up they ride more Features than last time.

 @thingswelike: Didn’t Tahne hit the road gap?
  • 3 0
 @AdynBrudosWc9: Yeah, and Cami. Probably some others, but it's hard keeping track of all the socials! Probably no point in trying the cliff drop as it's not in next year (and none of the men seem to like it).

 Fair play , so good to see the progression , hopefully next year we’ll see full runs next year

 Timing seems off. No way was there only 1sec between Matt and Adam

 All the splits have been 1.118s so far so something’s up
  • 1 0
 @Ally1: Seems like they've got the correct final times, but maybe lost the splits.

 In these conditions, better to run softer or harder tire pressures?

 Awesome ending! Cograts to Ronan for pulling the win from BK's epic run!

 Anyone there (and somehow found some 4G) know why it's been delayed? Maybe they forgot to charge the drones.
