 I want Claudio to narrate my wedding video.

 that would be great!

 Priest - "You may now kiss the bride."
Claudio - "YEEEOOWWW, You made it! ...where did da cat come from? ok, focus focus."

 I want him to narrate my divorcing party!
  • + 12
 How about him narrating the wedding night?
  • + 9
 Nice looking track to finish the season on. Think Gee is nervous at all this week????looool
  • + 12
 he is amaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing ! love him - bring him back time after time after time
  • + 27
 Now going light speed, aah there's a fence here! They're trying to kill me! Ok I'm alive....what will I do without Claudio's commentating this winter? I'll be devastated of he doesn't do these next year.
  • + 4
 Best commentary ever!!!
  • + 13
 How much do we have to pay this guy to begin every course preview vid with "HIIII EVERYBODY!" ?
  • + 2
 He just kissed the bride, ahhhhh there's a fly in his mouth
  • + 17
 Claudio is becoming as synonymous in the DH WC scene as Rob Warner has with his individual commentary skills. This is what the sport needs. Characters outside of the top athlete viewpoint. Well done Claudio and looking forward to watching you again next year.

 fuckin love this guy
  • + 58
 I could watch his previews all day. It's like riding with someone who's stoked EVERY TIME they ride. So rad. Get him and Tippie together!
  • + 6
 The amount of stoke would be tremendous

 Claudio for president !!
[Reply]
  • + 78
 For some reason I get the feeling that back in his days on the World Cup circuit, Claudio probably talked to himself while he was racing.
[Reply]
  • + 72
 We hope to see you next year too Claudio!

  • + 56
 This guy is the Morgan Freeman if trail narrators!!!

 When I think of Downhill Racing in my mind, this track is what I picture. The scenery, the berms, the jumps, the "HOLY SHIT" drops and technical. Looks unreal.
  • + 9
 Definitely one of the most legit down hill coursed on the line up. I don't think it is as hard core at Andorra ( nothing is ) but this will be a fun course to watch.
  • + 24
 You don't think its a little too much bike park?
  • + 7
 So much can go wrong on this course. Everyone will have to be at the top of their game. a minor mistake by any of the top guys will keep them off the podium. super stoked. -Captain Obvious
  • + 5
 When I think of Downhill Racing in my mind I picture all of that with the addition of Caudio's voice!

  • + 34
 Claudio's "chicken line" is my "worst-nightmare-ever" line
  • + 6
 pretty sure he said they taped off the chicken line, so he had no choice but to take the nightmare line. It's where Peaty went down last year i believe.
  • + 4
 i think superdanu meant the root section further up

 Thank you Claudio for the best pov's all season long! Its made the build up to the races that more exciting!
[Reply]
  • + 27
 Guys, thanks for all of your comments during this world cup! You made this season even more fun! Cheers, Claudio

 Claudio, you da man! MOAR CATZ!
  • + 2
 Thanks for the videos, they are awesome. I hope you are back next year.

 WoooAAARGHH, Claudio!

 Get into the commentary Booth, the pairing of yourself and Warner will be bigger than the Two Ronnies!

 They're trying to kill me!
  • + 8
 DON'T Kill Claudio! We love him!!
[Reply]

 Oh man, I'm gonna miss downhill world cup so much this winter. Its been a stellar year with coverage that has gotten even better. Thanks Claudio for the best course preview of any race series period.
[Reply]
  • + 9
 Claudio always makes me laugh out loud - I've had to stop watching these at work. Dude's a legend, "holy moley"!! I wish I could ride half as fast as Claudio - and he's talking, picking lines, wondering what's Will up to!
[Reply]
  • + 11
 I always look forward to the next race just cause of his "Coarse Previews". He seem like he is always having a blast

 Dear Pinkbike,

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't put any spoilers in the headlines. I won't be able to watch it live and I'll need to watch the replay.

I'd really appreciate it and I'm sure many others would also.

 Just bookmark this page: www.redbull.com/uk/en/bike/stories/1331611607601/watch-live-uci-2013-dh-world-cup-from-leogang

And avoid facebook and mtb websites until you've watched it back.

 Got to admit, for someone who hasn't ridden his bike in 4 years, Will is really good!

 LOVE the course previews with Claudio! Waoh yeah I made it! WHAT's that fence doing here? haha Man, that course is either fast/flowy or insanely steep and tech. should be a good finale to the WC
[Reply]

 Needs more cats!
[Reply]
  • + 6
 Redbull, more Claudio plz
[Reply]
  • + 4
 Oh boy - here we go again! Can't wait 'till the fat lady sings on this one! - then we'll all be in WC DH withdrawal for months.
[Reply]
  • + 5
 Only sad thing about this video is having to wait for more Claudio comments util next year.
  • + 16
 i would support a claudio rampage preview
[Reply]
  • + 3
 Hmm. Refreshing! After all that product and middle fingers I was thinking to myself, it's Thursday! Where are the course previews an WC stories!
[Reply]
  • + 1
 22th September? When's that, the day after the 21rd? Come on Red Bull sort it out...

But seriously, Claudio has to be the most entertaining person to be on board with for these previews. I've watched these at work with no sound but always again when I get home for the audio. Absolutely fantastic, he'd better be back next year!
[Reply]

 would be an epic finish to the season if snow was falling during finals. not a lot, just dusting.
[Reply]

 this guy does the best course reviews ever so funny. also it looks like they taped the course quite narrow in sections this year will be interesting to see what lines riders take
[Reply]
  • + 1
 I don't know about you guys but for me Caludio is the WC winner! Haha Claudio for president! "What is a fence doing here!? They are trying to kill me here!" Hahaha great finish!
[Reply]

 Claudio should present the world news on CNN or BBC. Much more interesting and upbeat. Ha!
[Reply]

 I love how excited he is just to get down, thats the way I feel most of the time.
[Reply]
