 We're at home, we have a bunch of crazy fans out there ready to scream like hell each time a rider is comming to them (or when they have a new beer in hands, or both), even if it's raining or not (some rain is considered as a shower for some of them camping since days)... and you're asking us if we can do it ? Ha ha ha

 Just want to say thank you for keeping it clean. Made my day having my 3.5y/o watch this with me, and say he wanted to be like those people when he is older. Cheers!

 @Whataboutism: I hope so. He’s the “captain” of my fantasy team. But doggone, 4 of the top 5 seeded riders are French. They’re at home. Odds are really good one of them will land atop the podium.

I just wanted to pose the question, because that’s the real discussion. Who has a shot of taking them down.

 I'm new to watching DH. Can someone help me understand why I can't see this race on the DH calendar for this year? I thought the next race is Val Di Sole next weekend.

 Maybe you're looking at a "World Cup" schedule, which World Champs is not.
  • 4 0
 This is World Champs. It's different than the World Cups. And much harder to watch because UCI sells the rights separately However, Pinkbike has articles on internet safety that should help you figure out where to watch it.

 Or, if in the UK as flag indicates you can watch it on Eurosport. And I think redbull.

 The championship is one race. The cup is the whole season. The cup is RedBull TV (for now). The champ is whoever shitty channel gave money to show this amazing race of evil Knievel DH racer are and there is women too.

 Great video, but where is the annual PB article that just happens to tell me which countries aren’t geo-restricted for World Champs… for no reason…

 Of course they can since they almost have won every world cup for the last 3 years
