Pinkbike's Predictions - EWS Madeira 2019
@mihauek: the way it works is that their sentence is served from the day of their last race. He is pre serving whatever sentence is handed down. Google Brock Tickle for an example.

The level of pace on a sight lap is insane. They make it look so easy!

Nerding Out - Maribor DH World Cup 2019
@Whitecollar: I believe it is their placing on the segment overall. She finished in the top 10, but was 14th overall on the segment.

Video: Race Recap with Ben Cathro - Maribor DH World Cup 2019
Hmm, if only there were a company that owned the IP of all those shots and had the resources to hire Ben and a production staff to help him. Man! If I could only think of a company to do this....

RedBull would do well to hire both and then have them as a team analyzing both DH and Enduro

First Look: Garmin's New Edge 530 and 830 Cycling Computers
@captaingrumpy: @f00bar: run them side by side and then compare the GPS bread crumbs and take a look at how much drift there is point to point. I have actually done this a lot to compare with Strava, GarminConnect, etc all set to the shortest recording interval. The drift gets very bad once you get into GPS/Cell coverage shadow areas. I have also had issues with accuracy once a phone drops off the network and has to rely on GPS only. The phones are capable of being very accurate, but they are not designed to leverage the HW for this specific purpose. Phones may or may not have access to GLONASS systems and many only use the US systems and not European or Russian satellites. See the following image that shows real GPS waypoints on a very simple 1/4 mile track that allows for use of the cellular network https://images.singletracks.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/gps_test_aggregate.jpg You can see how rough the iPhone waypoints are vs the other GPS dedicated devices. For everyone stating you can buy a new Android phone for $150/$50/etc that is with a contract that locks you in to a payment stream of 36 months. Try and buy the phone without getting a contract and see what the price is. At a high level if you already have a cell phone and want to run Strava/GarminConnect/etc it is good enough as long as you are not too far from a network. If you want more accuracy, care about battery life for reasons other than the ride, use Ant+ sensors or ride in areas where cell coverage is less than stable, a Garmin or other device is a better option.

Have you thought of running a LitPro for timing? https://www.litprolive.com/ Would make timing much more accurate and easier to compare.

I think you answered your own question. There are not a lot of reasons to replace a 520 unless you are going to use the TF integration, longer battery life or a few other newer features. They will be nice to have once the battery dies in the 520.
