awesome! good to know. can you elaborate on your lessons learned? if you don't want to give anything away, no problem, but i think all vital viewers would be stoked to know more about the project.

Added a comment about video Lourdes 2015 UCI DH World Cup Track with Laurie Greenland 10/14/2014 2:04 PM
C138x104

according to a random search online, i found the following about Lourdes, France in April. the race is April 11-12.

Lourdes in April is very rainy and still relatively cold. April sees a whopping 20 days of rain on average, with a total average precipitation rate of 103 mm. As a result, you are unlikely to have many dry days on your April visit to Lourdes. In addition, you are unlikely to have many warm days during April. The average low temperature during this early spring month is 45 degrees Fahrenheit with an average high temperature of 63 degrees.

@onenerdykid, we've discussed this internally b/c of the comments during world cup time and internally we have differing views on this subject. i lean toward the common practice among mainstream media outlets, which is deliver the information immediately. for everyone of you bummed by a spoiler, i'd wager there are an equal amount or more that just want to see the result in a headline and move on without digging into the story. i often want to know who won something, even though i might not see the event until hours or days later. i know this is not the case for everyone, but like i said in my comment below, what would the protocol be? wait an hour? 24 hours? should we have not posted andreu's winning run today b/c it's bound to spoil the results for someone some 18 hours later? it's not realistic to think we'd be able to deliver news and not spoil the results for everyone.

i understand your point completely, but when are spoilers allowed to be posted then? 1 hour after? 24 hours after? a week? we posted andreu's winning bike a few hours after the event. should we not post that b/c it might spoil the results? red bull had the results blasted all over the internet second after the event. other mainstream news and sport sites i check often have custom pop-up alerts w/ results news that take over the homepage. it's just common practice to post details in a headline IMO.

hopkins' 2nd run was scored at a 36.5, so he must have crashed.
