I think it probably is a bit slower on the second change. Instead of dropping high speed straight down the chute under the lift they turn hard right, traverse across, hard left, tricky rock garden, hard right and then finally speed up again. I'd say at least 5 seconds added in that section.

So I captured some freeze frames and I think the tire comes off before the wheel drops into the hole it explodes in. Why the tire is coming off, I don't know, but the wheel looks normal in the first photo with the tire starting to peel off. Maybe he lost pressure, pushed around that tree and peeled it off. A rim without a tire would be expected to detonate.

She is good. Check her Instagram stories and you'll see her in good spirits about it all. No frame break but a pretty wobbly front wheel!

I think as long as e-bikes are not just a category in a normal race but actually have their own specific course designed to test riders and bikes then it is ok. EWS has their "power stage" which is an uphill race on super steep tracks. That is perfect for an e-bike. GNCC has an e-bike category with specific courses and distances designed to test the riders based on the bike they have under them. Regardless, I agree I am personally not very interested. But maybe if I came across $15K, bought an e-bike and knew what it was all about then maybe I would care?

Like the jump at the top last time around, UCI will tape a faster line around the thing and make it obsolete.

Also ignorance of hate is not an excuse for perpetuating hateful words and thoughts. Maybe he's just some rural French kid who doesn't speak much English and thought the words were cool. I don't believe it, but, it doesn't matter. He should understand ... more »

Discovery owns Play Sports Group, which operates GMBN. I don't think they were ever going to show EWS events on a Discovery branded channel, but they invested in the company that owns EWS, and also brought in Play Sports Group to up the production through GMBN. So yes, it's possible if this helicopter was getting footage of the race then it was in a way connected to Discovery.

Is UCI going to help all the riders obtain exceptions for the travel restrictions? I did not think you could get a visa right now.
