 What happened to Cathro?

 @WAKIdesigns: Long story short Redbull are being a bit douch like.

 @fatduke: well, I take it with a bit of salt, because even Joe Rogan is freaking out every time they should show something from youtube during a podcast. Youtube takes down lots of sht automatically for nothing

 @WAKIdesigns: Who's Joe Rogan?

 Cathro needs an official sponser, *cough* PB *cough*. He's my second favorite next to Claudios preview run for pre race banter. Wyntv is more fun and games, or fights, and rarely talk about the actual track or studying different lines, or geeking out over little details that matter. Cathro is the best thing we DH geeks have. #Cathrovision4life

 @fatduke: stand up comedian and colour commentator for UFC and weed smoking ju jitsu man

 @Boardlife69: Yeah man, I second that. Cathro is a great rider and has his youtube channel while following the SDA (Scottish Regional series) and it's awesome! I would love to see him on the world cup circuit again. Great guy and rider!

 @WAKIdesigns: Adam Carolla is the biggest podcasted ever.

 @Boardlife69: 100% Ben knows his shit and has a manner about him that makes him very watchable by all. By comparison Red Bulls commentary and race analysis is poor. Bring Ben Back!

 In the end, they made a deal, so he's back. Wunderbar!

 Did Gwin race last year?

 I must have blinked. I missed his segment. Either that or he's so fast he can't be caught on film.

 I've noticed that in certain corners all these guys come through with a little bit of roost off the back (at 10:45 for example). Is that from the drift that naturally occurs at the speed these guys carry or are they deliberately throwing in a bit of a cuttie to quicken the steering?

 PSA y'all - that's not Gwin on the Specialized with the Redbull helmet.

It's Finn Iles, you can read the name on the jersey around 7:20. They're not passing off old footage, just juniors.
  • + 3
 OMG thank you! that makes a lot more sense, damn i'm an idiot. sorry pb. I'd also like to blame my very poor eyesight. He kinda rides like Gwin i guess tho, watch out guys this kid's in elite now!!!

 Canadian problem.... When will RedBull TV release to footage of the 2017 World Championship??? Still haven't seen that race and it pisses me off... I understand live was not an option for us but a few months later.. come on. Thank you

 wasnt the best broadcast , but i always enjoy dh, sorry u missed it. canada and rb, need to work that out

 Pretty sweet edit but noticed some non-world cup footage slipped in. Plenty from US Nationals at Snowshoe.
  • + 1
 @jebcas , I saw the same thing. The wild zone under the lift at snowshoe. Funny how the title says " 2017 world cup footage ".
  • + 3
 Love how this was edited into longer sections of riders, gives you a chance to really appreciate the individual riding styles.

 Thanks for not showing any wet footage... need hope that this wet season will pass.

 Cannot wait for the DH season to kick off, very close. We've all enjoyed the enduro apitiser but ready for the main course now.

 Yeah, can we not bother with RedBull and just have dudes wit phones on live feed this year?

 fastest 11 minutes of the year so far !

 Moir looks a lot like Peaty riding or is it just cos they're tall
  • + 1
 Yeaah! I agree, there is something about head and shoulders attitude .
  • + 4
 @Clem-mk: think it may be partly to his tall handlebar, he runs a tall rise bar, personal preference, but kinda old school by the trends, and troy brosnan's bars are old school narrow, but hes not a big bloke, so it works for him. i love learning about their spec choices on their bikes, one of the best things keeping racing interesting IMO, if they had to run bikes the way they came from the manufacturers they would just be fast mtb fashion models. but i also love what it says about bike setup choice in general: nobodies wrong!
