Downhilling on the air

- +

Not every sporting event gets live TV coverage. But downhill mountain biking competitions do. I'm talking about DH races in Thailand. Really. 

And that is regardless of the fact that this particular discipline is a niche sport with just a handful of fans and an even smaller number of athletes. Not to mention the fact that DH races take place on single-track courses located in rough, forested terrain which means a live broadcast of such an event requires so many cameras and other equipment and a huge crew to make it happen.
