VitalMTB has a thread about this. Pinkbike is supposedly talking to UCI/Red Bull etc. as well.
Red Bull have secured rights. Breathe a sigh of relief people.
And it starts around 8pm PST (Women's) and 9pm PST (Men's) on Saturday evening. Perfect.
Except now PB is saying that redbull isn't streaming to Canadian viewers, unless you hack it with a proxy or something.
Yeah, just read that. Glad I use a VPN.
Bringing my work laptop to Whistler and I can't install a VPN client. Going to try to use Tunnelbear's Chrome plugin to stream it on Redbull.tv -- fingers crossed.
Tunnelbear is working for me.
Never used VPN before but got it working with Touchvpn set to Sweden. Test run to watch xc tonight!
Watching the women's XC race on Express VPN, so hopefully it works for tomorrow night's races.
just loaded the opera browser as a free alternative to tunnelbear; working fine playing the xco currently.
Canada has a world champion! Awesome for Miranda to get that win. She looked very strong on the bottom section. Standing up & pedaling where some other girls were sitting & coasting in spots. Scary crash for Verbeek. Looks like Tracey was knocked a little silly there on her crash. Maybe that's why she took a few seconds to get back up. Cost her the race.
Damn, missed the ladies. Just got back in time to watch the mens.
I'm enjoying listening to Rob and Claudio flounder on calling the riders who are closer to my level than WC level.
Great to see Loic win.
Good thing he told Spec to shove their 29'er proto up their ass.
I will also add, I hope to fucking hell they don't stop making dual-crown forks because a retiring racer on medium wheels beat most of the field with that set up.
