High Voltage: The Inside Line on Electronic Shifting and Suspension
"do people want this stuff" - lol, no, they don't know they want it but they will buy it when presented with it End of the day these companies have the stats to look at, they know what and how much people will spend, so yes, people will buy them, you only have to go into the local LBS and see what people are dropping on new bikes to see that there is money and buyers all ready to part with their cash and strap there new shiny toys atop their new shiny Audi!!

High Voltage: The Inside Line on Electronic Shifting and Suspension
I wish to god I still had cabled window winders on cars, manual winders FTW - sick of electric windows failing and having to pay fortune to et spares/repairs, sometimes old way is good way, plus all these little manual bits add up to some form of physical activity!!!

Finals - Red Bull Hardline 2016
@doek: maybe just playing cautious, or there could be fees payable for LIVE feed?? but I would say playing it safe, just in case .. you .. someone went splat!! .. but, luckily, it all went well - awesome coverage, tonnes better presentation than the previous years for sure. What was it like seeing it all live, seems many were camped out at the road gap, how does that look in real life as opposed to on the feed

Finals - Red Bull Hardline 2016
@ryan-82: but it did only have a couple of hours delay, so really what you saw is what was filmed, not an edit any any means, just enough time maybe to cut out the crap/delays, but yeah, not live but pretty much almost

Red Bull Hardline 2016 - Results
@martis: By "everyone" I was not meaning lame ass fools like me!!!, I was meaning all those that are currently on the Pro race circuit, from Juniors, to women's, to elite men, - we can't have track builders making separate tracks for the women's class as well as the juniors, at the moment they can all race and manage, in one form or the other, the same tracks - tracks like this will always be extreme and on another level, I can not see it changing, OK, if someone wants to make a FEST/HARDLINE race series then yes, all those that fancy it can rock-on, but I cant see the sponsors backing it, especially as bikes were getting broke left right and centre on this one stop alone!! .. progression .. yes, of course .. and maybe in 10 years time this may be the norm, who knows eh!!

@davidsimons: Plenty of stuff out there from various feeds (riders and viewers that were there on practice day etc), They only filmed and posted it all yesterday so give them (Redbull Media) a chance, but we know RedBull will release a crash reel, we can be sure of that, as crash reels bring in the most hits on YT and FB .. all about the hits baby

They definitely stepped it up this year, much much better coverage, previous years have been awful presentation, this was done in race format with proper live commentary from warner and not a post edit do-over - excellent Good idea to have a delay on broadcast too, just in case of problems/injuries, considering this is a gnarly course, now they have it down they may do it truly live next yeart??, a-la Rampage (although is there a tie delay on that too?) There were some guys doing the commentary on the ground that are always on RedBull events (Gendle and that other bloke) that are broadcast on Dave TV channel here in the UK, I wonder if the extra cash in production is because they may run it on mainstream TV at some point?

definitely not, tis course took out several people before quallies even started, its a showpiece event and should remain as such, while progression is one thing, there are limits and racing has to be possible for everyone, not just those select few that can manage a course like this just to re-iterate . .awesome event and course and defo not a WC stop

Red Bull Hardline Preview 2016 - Video
Makes me laugh when people get touchy about advertising in vids and feeds etc, but are quite happy to ride round the trails and towns with jerseys and tops sporting massive brand logo's, basically free billboards for the companies .. and .. best of all .. we pay THEM for the privilege ha!!! yep - I don't like advertising unless I have paid for it and am wearing it for all to see ... whats' all this advertising where someone else pays and i get to see it for free ... sheesh!
