2019 World Championships: Pancake Hot Take – Day 6 Finals


We are now in the thick of the 2019 World Championships, and to make sure you’re up to speed with all the action, we’re giving you a video recap of what we think of the racing. This is Pancake Hot Take, where we rate the overall racing of every Finals Session on a scale of 1-5 pancakes, and give you our highlights from each night. 

Day 6 of the 2019 World Championships gave me everything I wanted out of a world champs session… and then some. That’s why I’m giving Day 6…

6 PANCAKES!!!!!!

I didn’t even know I had that many pancakes.

Stay tuned for Pancake Hot Takes every day after finals. And until then… stay hungry.
