Anybody know if Red Bull TV will be doing replays of the MTB World Champs or is it only a live stream? By the way it's showing up on Red Bull TV in New Zealand now, so maybe it's not just Sky TV here...

Just a heads up. Video does not show up in Chrome on Windows 10. Just get a large white space. It's been happening for a while with your YouTube embedded videos.

There's got to be a way forward with XC coverage on Vital MTB. I've noticed a serious increase in interest on Pinkbike and in recent polls etc on GMBN. Maybe it's the increased coverage or possibly the slowly improving venues that better represents regular trail riding. Something is definitely changing. I really love your quality work, from the images and articles to your superb podcast. However, when I visit the site it's so completely lacking in XC coverage it definitely seems like a choice. Which obviously you've just confirmed is entirely click driven. I'm sure you know it's important to invest in developing new markets, not just following them. Try a heavily image driven article and video interview with Jenny Rissveds and I'm willing to bet you get your desired clicks. Quitting after just one year of coverage is not investing enough in my opinion. Could you not find a european sponsor to cover the cost of extra coverage? I'd have thought Trek for example would be open to supporting some US coverage of their athletes. Finally, if you had Sven do an WC XC course preview on GoPro, followed by having him do episodes of your podcast with the riders, I'm certain you'd pick up some new fans in time. Given your staff are actually at the venue and it's the very next day I just can't fathom how some sort of sponsor arrangement can't be found. Just some thoughts. Hopefully this doesn't sound negative, I really love your work. I just feel you're talented staff should be covering the XC World Cup. I for one would love the content. I'm sure others would too. Please get Sven to do episodes of the Inside Line podcast with WC DH and XCO riders while he's there. I'm sure they'd be really entertaining. The podcast is fantastic, but far too limited with just US interviews. Why not do a race recap Vital podcast of both WC events or even a race companion alternative commentary. Fingers crossed.

So, just wondering. You've got your incredible team already on location, why not produce a slideshow of the men's and women's XC races tomorrow? Seems crazy that you wouldn't cover it. Interviews with the riders etc would be fantastic. Please let them loose. XC is still mountain biking last time I checked...

So good Sven. Keep em coming. Just a thought, maybe use a gimbal? Oh, and what happened to the super fun profanity, did the overlords bow down to PC timidness?
