Agreed. This is so incredibly annyoing.

 

Another example is when someone makes up a lot of time towards the end, and takes the lead, they keep repeating "A lot of time can be made down below!!", even though the leading splits are now completely different...

 

50 rider start list, we're at rider 18 or something: "HE IS NEARLY A SECOND FASTER, HOW DID HE DO THAT?? THIS IS ABSOLUTELY ASTONISHING!!" as if this is probably the greatest run in the history of mankind.

 

Uhm, how about...no, it's not? The better riders, on average, are towards the end, it's absolutely normal for riders to make up some good time on riders before them early on in the race...

 

Don't get me wrong, I think downhill racing is a perfect event for some extra enthousiastic commentary, it's fast and risky and can be fairly sensational. However, it's no reason to come across as if you have not a single clue about times, splits, etc :d (because there's no doubt their knowledge about the sport and riders itself is very, very good)

Yeah Andreassen did great today. Decent results by the Dutch in the end as well. Vader had a rough start, but still got into 11th.

 

I guess we can lock in Loana Lecomte and Mathias Fluckiger for medals already. What dominance!

Harder for Flückiger than for Lecomte though, considering the women's race is basically what we saw (minus Neff), whereas in the men's race Van der Poel will join the field, Avancini will quite likely return in better shape than earlier in the season and Pidcock is probably going to be a lot more recovered than he was yesterday...

You're right. Lecomte looks like almost a lock in for gold already (which is crazy considering it's her debut year at the elites). Meanwhile Fluckiger could realistically get bronze or miss out behind Van der Poel and Pidcock.
