Bobsleigh IBSF World Cup 2020 - 2021



Recommended Posts

After the fiasco in Winterberg, the second women's monobob World Series event, yesterday in Innsbruck, already looked and felt a whole lot more like a top class event. If it keeps going like this, it'll have all chances to be a not totally terrible Olympic event in 2022 and a worthy one in 2026.

 

Just too bad Martin Haven was all "first ever televised race!!" and such, but I guess these IBSF streams are shown on TV....somewhere? :p Other than that, of course Winterberg was streamed as well.

Starting first tomorrow,  

Yes, it's works (and it's very useful for the multiscreen) 

Another German clean sweep despite big mistakes. Easily one of the most dominant teams in all of sports.

NBC broadcasts races on their various channels.

Even yesterday's race with zero Americans? :yikes: 

Not sure, but they most likely showed it on the Olympic Channel (US Television version).

'Televised' means high production value with commentary. Using backyard webcams like in Winterberg is not the same.

Definitely, although he could have at least mentioned the first race was streamed :p 

 

Oh well, we can count this as first big monobob race anyway considering the field. I'm just slightly annoyed that they couldn't just make it a World Cup but had to go with some 'special' thingy like World Series - as if putting the women in a sled designed for disabled and youth athletes wasn't enough :p

Can you still watch the IBSF streams as well though? Because if having bobsleigh and skeleton on TV means IBSF streams get geoblocked, I really, really hope we will never have live bobsleigh and skeleton World Cups on Dutch TV :p 

 

For someone who often can't watch live, nothing beats a full event being available on YouTube to watch with great commentary and - importantly - no spoilers at all in the video titles and (unlike in luge :mad:) thumbnails.
