    Red Bull TV has decided no one cares about Women's XCO

    It appears that Red Bull TV has decided that no one would be interested in watching a full replay of the Women's World Cup XCO races, the 2 minute or 13 minute hilights will be enough. Action from the women's XCO in Val d'Isère - Photo - Video | Red Bull Bike

    The entire 2012 World Cup season has all the men's races available for full replay on demand. And all of the women's races have a note "Thanks for watching!" Here's typical examples.

    Red Bull TV - UCI MTB World Cup - Windham, US

    Red Bull TV - UCI MTB World Cup - Mont-Sainte-Anne, Canada

    Red Bull TV - UCI MTB World Cup - La Bresse, France

    If that seems somehow unreasonable, especially since the women's races start about 2.5 hours earlier than the men's races, limiting the opportunity to watch them live in many parts of the world, what with the European races starting around 2:20AM on the west coast. Hard to imagine that hard drive space is so expensive for a gigabyte of storage for 100 minutes of HD video that they can't make the women's races available for watch again on demand.

    Maybe send an email to Red Bull and the UCI pointing out the lack of fairness in that decision.
