Goldstone was on an SX broadcast so it's seemingly leading in that direction. Dak would be a great spokesperson in those regards being an MX guy who is at the top of it. Kinda a no brainer for cross promotion.

Maybe on race day live, but I’d be surprised to hear it mentioned in the main show on Peacock unless they got the rights for broadcasting MTB

Even RDL wouldn't be a bad mention...

Can we get the inside line on Dak’s Kiwi gloves?

For some reason that hand looks familiar to me. Laughing

It looked great! Plenty of YouTube content up to the run of race day, great photos too!! Whats the prize purse for the podium? Is it big enough that it may attract World Cup riders to the other rounds?

I shot PulpMX some clips and the results to have him drop mention, but doubt it.  He didn't seem interested.
Might mention it in passing on the live show yesterday if someone digs through the 3+ hours.

McAlpine we'd be more prone to get a response from. 

 

BUT...Clason was on a Demo, so if Specialized pays for a segment...

That was sick. He skipped about 3/4's of the berms on track. A lot of sneaky lines ridden very fast.

world cup XC kicks off this weekend. the PR from world series folk (note the "where to watch" link at the end goes to MSA 2023 which still says GCN+...don't think that's accurate)

After a long, six-month wait, the 2024 WHOOP UCI Mountain Bike World Series is set to get underway in Mairiporã, Brazil for the first race of the season this weekend.

If the last time the UCI World Cup visited Brazil is anything to go by - the 2022 season opener in Petropolis – the riders can expect a carnival atmosphere as passionate local fans line the course and bring some Latin American noise.

Although it hasn’t featured in the WHOOP UCI Mountain Bike World Series before, Mairiporã won’t be new to some of the field, having hosted high-level cross-country races since 2019, including last week’s UCI Class C1 race at the MTB Festival.
 
An hour north of the centre of São Paulo on the South American country’s south coast, it’s the first of a Brazilian Cross-country doubleheader – the first time a country has hosted back-to-back UCI Mountain Bike Cross-country Olympic World Cup (XCO) races at different venues since Canada (Bromont and Mont-Sainte-Anne) in 2009.

Up next is another new venue, with the mountainous Minas Gerais region’s Araxá hosting round two a week after the dust has settled at Mairiporã’s Arena iMTB Bike Park.

FIREWORKS GUARANTEED

The Mairiporã course is designed to promote overtaking and close racing, making it a fitting location for the opening UCI Cross-country Olympic (XCO) and UCI Cross-country Short Track (XCC) races of the year – if one thing’s for sure, fireworks are guaranteed.
 
The first race after a long off-season can make picking favorites for the race difficult, but in the women’s Cross-country, Austrian Mona Mitterwallner (Cannondale Factory Racing Team) and Frenchwoman Loana Lecomte (Canyon CLLCTV XCO) are likely to resume their battle for supremacy.
  
Meanwhile, in the men’s field, Switzerland’s Nino Schurter (Scott-SRAM MTB Racing Team) is still the man to beat. The 37-year-old won the last time the UCI World Cup came to Brazil in 2022 and claimed his ninth title at the final race of the 2023 season in Mont-Sainte-Anne.

Despite strong challenges by Jordan Sarrou (Team BMC) and Mathias Flückiger (Thömus Maxon) Schurter appears to defy aging, using his years of experience to overcome riders more than 10 years his junior, as seen in a third-place finish at the 2024 Absa Cape Epic.
 
Two riders who wont be making the trip to South America include the 2023 womens UCI Cross-country Olympic overall champion Puck Pieterse (Alpecin-Deceuninck), and reigning mens UCI World and Olympic Champion Tom Pidcock (Ineos-Grenadiers), who have both decided to focus on the road instead.

Local fan favorite Henrique Avancini wont be lining up in Mairiporã having retired at the end of last season, but will be on-site supporting the team that bears his name, Caloi Henrique Avancini, which is filled with Brazilians ready to shine on the world stage.
 

In the Cross-country field, reigning overall champ Pieterse’s absence opens the door for the likes of Alessandra Keller (Thömus Maxon) and Evie Richards (Trek Factory Racing Pirelli) to steal an early advantage in the women’s competition. In the men’s, Victor Koretzky (Specialized Factory Racing) finished the 2023 season with a hat-trick of victories, so will be aiming to stretch his hot streak across seasons to make it four wins in a row.

 

Racing gets underway in Mairiporã on Friday.
Full schedule and event details are available HERE

I just searched UCI on Max app and I see the events upcoming so that is promising. I though there was so other level you needed to subscribe too for some reason 

 

actually it looks like the B/R sports add on free part ends after the 21st.  The event that will be on the (22nd local time for me currently) does not say the add on is on us.

The SX race in a couple weeks is in Nashville. Not a bad drive from Oak Ridge.

Flow reports that Stan Sports now has the MTB WC broadcast rights in Australia: https://flowmountainbike.com/post-all/how-to-watch-the-uci-mountain-bike-world-series-in-2024/

As a subscriber, I dared not dream...

fark, my kids and wife have every single streaming service but stan.... looking into it, cheapest you could do it is stan basic + stan sport (12+15 = $27) a month. Bloody hell.

Incredible isn't it. Tunnel vision for the straightest line.

I thought about this... Maybe Steve would have mentioned it if ebikes were involved...
