I'd just wear a huge foam Monster Energy can costume to the podium...

I get that they are bringing this to us and I appreciate that, but a little slack here. Maybe Monster should do that to them in Supercross where the money is a lot greater.

If Redbull started to get retaliation effort from as you say maybe Monster you would think they would reconsider. How far could all this go? Now is Redbull the only one that can bring coverage to the world? I bet not. What if no Redbull athletes podium could we see an empty stage at the awards presentation?

Sorry in advance if this has been covered already, but no signs of Martin Maes? Perhaps he's going full enduro? I know the talk at the end of last season was to race the first two rounds of each WC DH and EWS and decide what series to go from there.

Any pointers will be appreciated!

thanks,

Apparently the dates are overlapping so that plan was probably doomed from the beginning anyways. That´s just what i read somewhere though.
I´d say given his start to the season and the hyper competitive field in dh, he´s better off just finishing the enduro season in the top spot and raise his market value in doing so, instead of risking injury in a dh race just for bragging rights.

Between the Races with Amaury Pierron



We spent some time with Amaury Pierron at his home #BetweenTheRaces to find out what the DH World Cup 2018 Champion does on and off the bike. Amaury takes us behind the scenes of his hometown in Brioud, France, to expand on his love for Moto and how he keeps balance in his life while training.

Get up close and personal with the current world champ and get his take on his quest for another domination in the World Cup season.
