    What a start to the weekend with a medal for Evie!

    And yet again, what absolutely toss coverage from the BBC, some guy shouting nonsense down the mic till it distorts, yet zero audi from trackside. Garbage.

    It is a joke that Red Bull can’t do it in the UK.

    @snotrag I agree, a great result for Evie, shame @singletrack haven’t picked it up as a story straight away, this link seems to provide a work around for red bull not being able to broadcast to UK https://www.redbull.com/int-en/events/uci-mountain-bike-world-championships-val-di-sole-english-only

    Not obvious, but it was available on the TV app and the website (link as above).

    Easy way to avoid spoilers is just stick to the British Cycling website – hours later still nothing on the “latest news” front page…..
