They should try to find some nice ostacles or do more playfull tracks and they should avoid that stupd drops. This is XC there are some interesting obstacles but not drops. The Spanish guy apears from no-where, amazing 😲

The English commentary was a thousand times better than the German broadcast. The German broadcaster took a couple of minutes to realize Mathieu van der Poel had crashed. Also I don't think he know who avancini was....

The fact that they removed the training ramp thus causing a rider to get injured is unacceptable.

Race is not training anymore. Vd Poel has got three more years to work on his drops technique.

And again they provoked an accident by making this track too difficult and confusing. Like the Tour de France tracks.

Why are they not using droppers in XC ?? Its not like the extra weight is making any differance

@Aleks Nestserau I would ride it without pads. But i wouldnt even dream about drops like that with seatpost in arm pit height.

Vor Monat

@WormEffect X What those pro XC racers do often defeats the logic. I wouldn’t ride there without knee and hip protection either. Would I be the lightest and fastest? Probably not. But it would highly increase the chances of finishing the race after a fall like that of vd Poel.

@Daividu Ok 100mm is better than standing on toes when going downhill. Or getting stuck behind the saddle. The weight difference is only about 250-300g, maybe less if you got the money. And thats dampened weight. It got to be worth it

@1bmxD + you need to sit and then stand up to lower it which take time and energy. On route like this rider will do a lot of 'squats' with standard dropper ;)

many riders are so used to standard seatpost that they dont really need that on course like this, probably would just annoy them to constantly think about whether they should get it low or high at the moment. Its more obvious on courses with really long descents on which you can drop it for a significant time.

it would be horribly impractical to destroy and reprint all the 2020 decoration, merch, let alone the logo. They even printed 2020 on the blankets at the athlete's accommodation.

Unpopular opinion: Mathieu cursed himself abandoning the Tour de France, you put yourself under immense pressure, and it has consequences. Hope he recovers well!

@Arno De Cabooter Cursed is a strong word ofc, and not 100% serious, but yeah if you disrespect the Tour de France for the shitty olympics, you gonna lose some fans, including me. So far everyone who skipped/abandoned the Tour ate shit at the olympics, and the best riders of the tour won the medals. Just how it should be

@Patrick Bateman welll what happend in the women race is something i cant argue about hahah…. And now there is a article here thats says that MVDP his teammate said to him that the woodn panel was going to be removed.. so basically its kinda his fault. But still not agree on the cursed part ;)

@Arno De Cabooter Yeah i read all of that, he abandoned the TdF to prepare for the olympics, and somehow couldn't check out the course when others could? He was the only one crashing there. To blame it on "communication" is as dumb as in the womens road race

@Jacot Guillaume team mates told him that the bridge would not be there, MVDP was not there for the test race in 2019 where the bridge was also removed.

V/d Poel didn't know they took off the wooden bridge on that drop that was there during recognition round apparently...that explains the fall
