 God I love World Cups just cause of all the stokage and the epic recaps that are sure to follow. And who knew Stevie had a sense of humor like that... pretty awesome

 All Canadians have a sense of humor...it just happens to suck dog dick. See: Tippie's atrocious commentary from the world cup.

 Not a very confident sounding Aaron Gwin before the finals @ 1.50...great get by the video crew!!!

It's amazing how well done these are and how quickly they put them together...almost better than watching the actual race.

Well done Parkin Bros.!!!

 Isn't that how he always sounds?

 Seriously...it would take me most of two weeks to put out an edit like this - not that anything I do would be of that quality. That's why they're the pros!
  • + 6
 Has Gwin and Specialized put a media ban on themselves ? Surly the question on everyones lips is what happened to Gwin ?.
The fastest person by a country mile over the last 2 seasons, new team, new bike and over 6 months to test and get things dialed in and he finishes way down the order, even cunny and warner were in so much shock but not a whisper from the websites on what happened on the day ?

Im sure we will hear some excuse that they are trying to come up with while driving to Val Di Sole for the next round, come on Pinkbike give us an exclusive ?

 Having spent the weekend there and filming myself, I didn't see much of Gwin at all. Not that I was hunting for him! However there wasn't any obvious reason for it! I guess he needs to get upto speed again and I'm sure we'll see him up there again at VDS. On another note, one of the impressive edits of a race for a while! Completed so quick! Haven't had a chance to even look at my footage yet!

 I know pinkbikers hate twitter... but Gwin tweeted post race

"Well definitely not the result we'd hoped for but that's racing. Always another race, lookin forward to improving and up for the challenge!"

 ^^ Someone just mentioned the words 'Gwin' and 'Twitter' in one comment- I just threw up into my own mouth.

 Seriously how do the Parkins bros put together feature film quality race recaps in ONE day? I hope someone is paying them well for their efforts, it's simply amazing.
  • + 3
 As an amateur film/edit person, it blows my mind completely how they can do it.
  • + 3
 No clue either, I haven't even managed to get a proper look at my footage!!
  • + 4
 They send all the footage to a sweat shop in India and it's done overnight. ;-) KIDDING!

 Please someone give these guys a fat check and the contract to film the WC series! This footage is a bergillion times cooler than the Redbull/UCI stuff! I appreciate seeing it, but the angles and the camera placements made it kinda dull and slow on the official showing. However where these guys really get it! I felt like I was gonna have a heart attack watching this video!
  • + 9
 Seriously Red bull have upped the live coverage game endlessly did you watch any of it? It was amazing considering the timings they have to deal with. e.g. a 4/5 minute track with riders down at 1 and 2 minute intervals. you saw a lot of racing in it. and fort William is in internet terms in the middle of no where. The fact you managed to see any footage is quite incredible.

The Parkins video is meant to be in your face good, with your emotions being pulled in every direction your not going to get the same with a live feed no matter who does it.

Both of these feeds are exceptional.

 Someone has! It's called Dirt Magazine, keep up!

 Lol, love how you put 'from the parkin bros' because you don't want to put DIRT TV. Rolleyes
Priceless.

 This recap video was so amazing good had to watch it twice. Please keep these coming all season!!

 The coverage on the day was also amazing, they would see in the riders live over the line then cut immediately to highlight of the next rider on the upper section. They would then go live to that rider to see him over the line, then so on to the next rider!! It was absolutely relentless, Brilliant. Also, we don't get much in the way of weather in Scotland like we had over this weekend, really topped off a great event.
  • + 1
 Agreed. Usually, there's those lags where I'd nod-off and miss 1/2 the race - it's usually 6am when the European WCs air in my time-zone. I never had a chance for my mind to drift off this time and, quite honestly, I liked it!!

 Absolutely excellent edit, best in a long time! On a different note, did anybody else notice there was less photographer articles this year, not as many track/ track walk pics etc. as there has been previously?

 People! Please! Gwin is fast - he had an off day - everyone wants to know why. Minnaar placed 9th - poor by his standards - both had clean runs, just weren't on fire like Gee and the others. Don't sweat it - Gwin will be on top again as will Minnaar. Opening round and they and others, just need to fine tune. It'll all be good. That's racing. Oh nice vid btw. Congrats to the top 5.
  • + 2
 Seriously. Nobody seems concerned about Minnaar, but this is the first time in eons that he hasn't been on the podium. I find that more of a shock, especially with Greg's track-record at Ft. Bill. I think it's just a matter of a later start for the WC season. Some riders timed their training much better than some. And, of course, it's racing.

 Have the Parkin Bros started composing music?! How else could they find something this dramatic to match their awsome editing skillz! Thanx guys, this really gives us a taste of what it would have been like to be there in the flesh. Keep it up!
