Does it exist? Ive looked in all the usual places but...... no luck. Is it just me or has 4X become the redheaded step child of the world cups? I still enjoy it more than the DH coverage, its a shame its not given the same opportunities.

No luck, and considering it's been a few days we aren't likely to catch a replay of it anytime soon.

Why even bother having a race if no one gets to see it. 4X has all the potential to be great but only if people can see it, follow it and appreciate it for how good it can be. With riders like Graves, Atherton and Gracia opting out Im afraid 4X will soon be a thing of the past and that will be our loss for sure.

Freecaster had live streaming from the 4X event, just like the DH. They've posted replays of the DH and XC, so 4X may be coming soon.

Spank you very much. I watched the whole enchilada and it blows my mind that 4X isnt the premier event of the World Cups, the racing was insane and the overall level of competition was unreal. I think if the UCI dilweeds put some more effort into the tracks and gave more incentive to the DH riders to race it ($$$$$$$$) the series would soon get the credit it deserves.

Great vid. For what its worth I really appreciate what RSP has invested into 4X, I think its safe to say that without your team and your riders there wouldnt be a show at all. Thanks and good luck for the remainder of the season.

I watched the freecaster replay last night. Always enjoy watching the 4x events more than DH.

Freecaster's replay kind of sucks though. I've got a decent connection but the streaming crap kept dropping the resolution every time the gate would drop.

Thanks for the link mr RSP! And I'll echo nate: thanks for doing what you do with regards to the sport.

This is my video of the 4X taken at the world cup in Pietermaritzburg 2011

There are also videos of the xc and DH events

Thanks for the vids everybody. Love the 4x coverage and I also like it better than the DH.

Hope the RSP crew can get a few Ws over Graves this year!
