    So here's how this works, funny guy - There have been only two men's winners in the 6 races - Richie Rude (2) and Jack Moir (4). Moreover, there have only been two men who have gotten second place in those six races - the same two - if they didn't win. When you think about the fact that each race consists of 4-6 stages and about 30 total minutes of racing, it's pretty amazing that two guys can continuously best everyone else.

    We've seen total domination by one rider in a season of WC DH or EWS before - especially on the women's side (Atherton, Mosley, Ravanel), but I've never seen total domination in the same season shared by two riders. Pretty cool actually.

    Do the climbs count in e-moto-eww? That first sentence makes it sound like they do.

    Looks like Rude is done. Shitty way to end the season.. was hoping for a final battle between him and Moir.
