    The woman's XC race today was the most exciting UCI race of the season, period.

    I haven't watched it yet......however, the Women's XC season has been great.....the most competitive of the UCI season.

    I have seen buddies break themselves putting a foot down before a drop and cartwheeling. But he executed it flawlessly.

    And that finish jump is no joke.

    Just the right amount of technical.....no super big climbs. Kept it pretty even for all the racers.

    Women's DH was another blowout, but the men's was tight! 0.7 separating the top 4. A bobble here and a bobble there was the difference between that group and the bottom half of the top ten.

    Solid results for guys recovering from injuries, but the winner - well, let's just say impressive.

    And this concludes the 2018 World Cup and World Championship DH season. Another very interesting season, with a new World Cup champion and the steady changing of the guard to the younger guys.

    The coverage was horrible......but at least the Olympic Channel on Spectrum broadcasted them same day.

    The Women's DH was Ok, but not great.
    The Men's DH Good.
    The Women's XC was incredible.
    The Men's XC was Good.
