One of the few and true legends of our sport.
In his reference to sleeping on tiles in 2003 while on Madcatz, they used to come up to us time to time in Laguna beach and have a luxury weekend away. We had mattresses, pillows and carpets to sleep on....

What about a link for HT LT owners so they can run the RS Super Delux Metric shock? Like the team riders are using?

5 Judges all isolated from each other. I head judge (Who does not do actual scoring but makes sure judges get all the info they need in terms of replays, etc and is communicating judging criteria to judges and riders, basically making sure his judges can do the best job possible)
Throw out high and low score, that way the final score is an averaged one of three judges. This takes out any bias both high or low from friends/countrymen etc (im not sure they may even do this already)
Judges are named and their scoring is visible to all on the live feed and as mentioned before they judge in isolation and are not swayed or influenced by other judges - if issues or questions need to be raised that is what the head judge is for.
Another good suggestion I heard was to not publish the scores until the END of round one. If there is enough time (break between run one and run two) this would be a good idea. Judges write down a score with notes even that feels right after the run while its fresh in their heads but then only put down a final score after a quick watch of relevant replays of each run. I feel this will result in a more accurate scoring and ranking. Problem with this is it may hinder the "live feed drama" - but in the same way it could add to the drama if presented correctly.

No easy simple solution

What is different this year is riders have to qualify. Not many seem to this know as it’s not been well communicated. Sad really. For some small nations, You do what you have to to make the team, your one chance on a world stage you’ve earned and your week may be over after Friday qualifiers - having to sit the racing out two days later. Not sure what the point of the rule is or why the change but I’d say a bit of a downer for sure.

I know. Unfortunately practise sessions were split so no opportunity there then due to start times no opportunity to shoot the masters in the race either. He’s been killing it at CX, Marathon and DH too. Legend.

29" also took up positions 2-6. 5 out of the top six might be saying something. Gwin is an anomaly prob like Ratboy would win on a 26"

Unfortunately it was not possible this round, practice was split in two. With top 150 practicing some stages while rest of field (including junior women) were on other tracks. Same goes for race, we were only able to follow top 30 men and top twenty women - some great new talent in junior women - Ella Connelly would have been top ten, in her first year racing Enduro.

Mix of both. Alloy wheels are sometimes easier to fix, hammer and bend back with pliers if need be to continue. I would say it wasn’t the material of rim causing failure at this round rather the random rough nature and sniper rocks combined with long runs high speed lots of elevation and rider fatigue at altitude like never before

Somethings can be fixed and some can’t. Not every flat is the same, some are more tire related and a tube or plug can save the day, others are more severe or rim related and can not be ridden down flat. Once a rider looses a certain amount of time and thus positions they won’t receive any rankings points for that round, so to risk injury in a crash riding non functioning equipment for no points makes no sense. If adrien could have fought on he would have. Oton lost a minute the day before - he was able to plug and reinflate tire and carry on fighting back up to 11th and in the points, so in closing there’s a lot happening out there in these vast stages (not all can be covered or even seen, so info is murky at first) - none of the top guys are unprepared these days - they all want it bad, no one wants to pull out.

Graves wheel gave up on the last stage, he did great to nurse it that far pulling great times along the way. The most DNF’s and flats in any EWS thus far. It’s wild out there, most DNF’s were wheel and it body related, but some great stories out there, McKay Vezina running the Kidson on Sunday and Kiwi Charley riding ALL of day one with only a front brake just so he could be allowed to race Sunday. True grit.

***It was just a few meters before the start of stage four, so maybe a few style points than usual thrown in for the camera out of stage, although he was equally sideways and roosting in Saturdays in stage Stg. 1 shot on vital - and he got third then

Worse when it's happening to a friend. Or anyone for that matter. The camera was put down between the crash sequence and portraits BTW. I scrambled to help until medic arrived (in seconds)
What made it better to stomach, one of the many great race doctors Dr. Nico Thumbb (real name) - Chile’s best hand surgeon was right there and cleaned and stitched Anita up on site. All the doctors getting around the tracks on bikes. Legends.
