The Complete Guide to the 2024 World Cup DH Teams
Too bad the DH racing isn't broadcast anymore. 2023 sounded like it was a good time with 2024 looking promising. oh well.

@canadaka: good call. I mean it's a whole new event style and format in a location never used before, so there's no way they could have foreseen that issue happening.

agreed. We can't ride, the wind is too much... "backflip" how about now? Nope still too windy, "train 360, flips, whips" Course still on hold... hey VIP areas.. sell sell sell .... Oh look, the sun is setting.. guess the event can go on now. But just one run. Event organizers once the event was done..."Engage the Police state, check points everywhere"

UCI Reveals an Early Preview at the 2024 Race Calendar with the First EDR World Championships
They can add all the races they want or not.. still nobody paying Discover+ or whatever service it is to watch DH racing. They could hire Warner and I'd still not watch it. I tried watching a few YouTube clips of the first race and they have turned the courses into magic video games with all the ridiculous signage on the side of the track. RedBull had the event and broadcast dialed . Oh well.

5 Things We Learned From Red Bull Joyride 2023
It's not like this is a new event at a new location. They'll always come up with an excuse as to why they can't run the event. The dirt not being dirt enough one year was an excuse.

5 Things We Learned From Red Bull Joyride 2023
This was by far the worst Joyride I've ever attended. I get wind and weather to a point. But these guys were sending backflips and 360's for hours when it was toooooo windy to compete. If you're able to throw a backflip or 360 the gaps in training then you can compete. Maybe you don't throw the wildest tricks then and you dial it back and send old school tricks with perfect precision then. But that's just one small issue. The other was the Chinese military style security they had out in force. It really made Whistler feel not like Canada. A group of spectators were peacefully chilling in the trees with hammocks watching the event and they had security with full face coverings going through the crowd harassing everyone, you couldn't even get outta Lots 1-5 without the RCMP performing police state checkpoint stops. Lots of little things added up to really take the Joy outta Joyride. I'm sure all the VIP areas though milked the most outta the patrons while they continued to promise a show that they couldn't do because of wind as all the riders continued to ride the course and perform tricks in front of them. What a sham.

New Apparel & Accessories from Oakley, Leatt, Lazer & More - Eurobike 2023
I’m a pretty big Oakley nerd but god damn their recent branding has been horrific. The bland white Oakley text looks like they’re an insurance company.

First Ride: 2024 Rocky Mountain Slayer
Are modern trails so wide and without any kind of rough natural terrain that a 29'er xc bike is really classified as a free ride bike now ?

[UPDATED] Elite Finals Results & Overall Standings from the Lenzerheide DH World Cup 2023
Remember when we used to be able to watch live DH racing. Now we have to read about it again like it's the 1950's. At least the 1950's had radio broadcast of live events.
