    If you watch the first clip I posted, it's from a distance and you can see a post fly into the middle of the track when Hecht rejoins. Looks like it was just the tape and not the post that took out Werner.

    Elite M and W both won on 2x drivetrains. Marketing departments left scrambling all over.

    I’m sure Sram has already slid into inboxes offering SRAMbassador deals on groups.

    But did they get in the big ring?
    Looked like it on the pavement.
    Electronic?

    That property has room for long fast stretches on the pavement and the high ground, and it looked like the course used them. Maybe they were in the big ring in both places?

    WTF with the conspiracy theory ?

    1 or 2 rings the groups are still sold by the same companies. As long as you pay for your gear they do not care if you want 1 or 2x. Not sure why marketing departments should give any fuss about that.

    Actually, often times they do. Even if you pay for your gear.

    And I was being tongue-in-cheek.

    The thing is that “camp” in Spain for cross racers is likely different fromcamp for road racers. VdP did a camp of 2 weeks (?} to prepare for his road campaign next spring. Likely big mileage and less recovery the cross racers build in. Hence that loss he doesn’t, care about.

    And he won the next day.

    He is a really focused guy. Although he will always line up with the idea to try to win the race all he cares really is cx worlds and having a good run during the classics and the MTB olympics. The rest are bonus.

    Both of these races are well worth seeing. If anyone posts a version to YouTube, I'll try to link here. FuboTV has the rights for US broadcast. All else requires VPN or an upload to YouTube that dodges the rights check.

    Podium presentation is taking a while as all three are getting medical treatment for body temp evidently. Van der Poel is still shivering uncontrollably throughout his interview.

    I thought the worldcups were on the YouTube UCI channel but was disappointed this morning.
    Hesitant to sign up for the "sign up" youtube stuff.
    Hope for the torrent tonight.
    Please post if you have a link.

    Most people wait for the muse to turn up. That's terribly unreliable. I have to sit down and pursue the muse by attempting to work.

    UCI YouTube won’t even appear on the screen if you are blocked as it is in the USA. So it is there, you just can’t see it without a VPN, and even then you may not be able to get it to play as they are setup to read your digital fingerprint now. But GCN covered it outside of the US, so if you cannot get the UCI to play, then you might try the GCN broadcast. They are both listed here.

    Aha, here is women’s race. Please don’t watch here. Copy link and paste in browser then take out spaces for playing in YouTube.

    That^ channel on YouTube should also have the men’s race once they get it processed. Sports so Belgian commentary but easy to follow. Just keep your google translate warm.
