Ummm, rich? Neko drives a 90's Ford Explorer & lives in the backwoods of NC.
Luca Shaw, he rode the same dinky small town BMX tracks as me. Dakotah Norton...little house in the Northeast.
I saw Neko when he was young riding hoop rides and smoking pros and not complaining. I...more

Can't speak for other countries, but if you're a US rider you pretty much need to be rich to get into World Cups. DH isn't a cheap sport, but traveling the country for 5 races that get you UCI points (and not even that many) is crazy. Expecting people to max out credit cards and...more

Well said. A few years ago I got 5th at US Nationals and qualified for my first World Cup. I now work my ass off as a traveling nurse- often on call and overtime and get usually get up at 5 am, train, and then go work a 10 hr shift. Not at a desk. In surgery. Lifting more heavy...more

Remember that TV is dead. I assume most viewers are streaming so it's not a problem to have 80 riders on the live broadcast, you can still watch the last 20 if you like. Having more people to be in the feed allows to maybe to get this flamboyant run from an underdog! As if...more

Brines and Eddie are right- this ain't a new problem at all. I speak from personal experience in the late 90's when I ate an extremely hard to get $600 on a plane ticket I couldn't use to travel to Italy, Slovenia, and France for 3 WC DH races. Why couldn't I go? Because my UCI...more

For USA riders last year, there were only 5 chances to earn UCI points domestically, the four Pro GRT rounds and National Champs. Of those 5, only Windrock and Nationals had enough points on offer to get a racer to the minimum needed to race a World Cup (Mountain Creek only...more

So funny to see a lot of old school pro BMXers doing those races, and I know they all did well coming over the those disciplines. I am 54 so seeing the Mike King, Lopes, and others was a highlight of that video.

not really sure, but probably due to interest and cost to run the race and build the course. 4x has its own world tour - http://www.4xprotour.com/ - and a world championship still

Any ideas as to why they took those disciplines away? I think they should make a comeback.

At the World Cup they had duel back then. The track started separate like a dual slalom but then merged for a head to head battle. I recall Cedric Gracia putting a sweet pass on Brian Lopes for the win at the WC there.

back then they raced Dual (like shown in the video) at World Cup races (two riders on the same track). At U.S. national level races they ran dual slalom (two riders on two side-by-side *identical* tracks). 4x wasn't a thing yet, but eventually Dual was changed to...more

You can see the qualification runs while they are live? If so, where?
