    Is there a bigger blunder in cycling than having the broadcast of the World Championship race being geo-restricted every year. And this year it is so tight that I cant even break through with the VPN built into Opera. Anyone have a work around?

    Maybe if you practice really hard, you can be in it next year.

    OK - Not World Cup - World Championships, but here's some great footage.

    Didn't see the race, but I could not be more thrilled than to see that guy wearing the rainbow jersey!

    Well earned and majorly deserved.

    Will the replay be region locked?

    Minnaar's run...



    The thing about Greg is he is so smart, so tall and so smooth that he rarely looks fast. And the fact that he never had the lead until the finish line would be like a basketball game in which the team wins at the buzzer without ever leading!
    EDIT: Ooops - looks like he led at the first split. My bad.

    And it's no fluke. He already had a 4th and a 7th in World Cups this season and won the European Cup. Three podium last season, including a WC DH win.

    Lenzerheide WC DH just finished. I am sure you can catch a replay on Redbull TV - although I couldn't get it to play on Chrome. It worked on Safari (live).

    Tight racing at the pointy end of the start list! Nothing shocking in the results.

    Replay was fine this afternoon on Chrome.

    Skip the first 1.5 hour and just watch the last 40 mins.

    Shaw's crash looked harsh.

    Some highlights - and I love Eliot Jackson. He just loves racing! Much better sidekick for Rob Warner than Claudio is.

    Agree.....sometimes it sounds like he forgets he is supposed to be commentating.

    And he was a Yeti dude back with Gwin, Blenkinsop, Graves, Rude and Leov. Yeti had a knack for finding and developing great racers. Although Eliot barely broke into the top 20 on the World Cup DH circuit, he knows racing and his stoke can't be denied.

    I felt like his mic was way too low, and made him sound way more low energy than usual (although when you have Rob Warners commentary anything else will sound low energy).
    Buti agree, much better than Claudio.
    Maybe it's a language thing, but he always sounds awkward

    So Stoked! Two races the weekend in West Virginia. The rock gardens halfway down this track look BRUTAL, and this preview is terrific - Cathro is so calm considering the "Blesterin pess" he's riding!

    Fox Sports 2 showed the short track. Not at all sure why they’d not cover the DH too.

    My forearms are pumped just watching that 2 minute long rock garden.

    Great weekend crowd for the second race.

    Both Men's and Women's races were spectacular! Thanks for the links, @mtnbikej! Strangely, they only work on Safari for me, but they did work!
    Wow, wow WOW! I love DH racing so much!

    Well actually, FS2 showed 4.5 hrs of DH last night…judging by the late hours and lack of non-red Bull ads, it looks like RB bought themselves an infomercial block…

    I know this is the DH thread. But Men’s XCO was sweet.
