So the UCI has just posted a video with "messages from the athletes" regarding the first ever Cycling World Championships to be held in Scotland in 2023. This event will be the first time 13 cycling disciplines are brought together at one event, and everybody seems rightfully excited about it. Except...they were unable to get a comment from any of the holders of the umpteen DH rainbow jerseys belonging to the UK??? Like, they can get the African U23 champion straight from the bush on a cellphone, but they can't get a comment from Rachel, Manon, Gee, Danny or Peaty just up the road? #ohwell

Painful to watch. If only they don’t forget to put it on the schedule, while Zwifting away on their E-bikes on a snowy slope.

The UCI has managed to make my already low opinion of them even lower. From the slim DH schedule, too many average courses and high fees to venues they really seem to not give a crap about WCDH. UCI please go chug a fat, veiny throbber.

From my tally, we got 10 athletes; 4.5 track, 1 XCO, 2.5 road and 2 BMX. 1 rider was listed as Road/Track so I marked her as .5 each discipline.

No love for the dirt...

Hello,

We can't blame UCI for that, because they asked us to provide them video from Loic BRUNI, and because of traveling and testing a lot currently, we were late and missed to do it.

They consider DH as good as the other Cycling sports, don't be afraid...They did the job. We as a Team were not good.

Thanks for supporting DH, and sorry for having been slow and not efficient.

And YES, we are fuck..g happy to be part of this huge event. It will be a great show, and good moment to celebrate with all the riders !

Don't read to much into it, pulling these videos together can be a challenge and you work with what you get.

When Lappartient was elected UCI president there was a fair amount of discussion regarding the fact that he has no love for MTB.
