Here's a quick look at the track at La Bresse via Gee's Contour. Gee qualified third today, so look for him to be gunning for the top step of the podium tomorrow.

 im assuming they muted the video because of the horrendous wind noise you get when using a contour?

 You know why he flies down ?, it is because hes sponsored by red bull "it gives you wings" Razz

 haha oli funny, i was thinking the same Razz - if he went and faster he may as well have hucked straight to the finish line!

 Ruts are apearing everywhere, i think the tech on this track is harder than what it appers apart from at 1:02 whereas if you are of atherton breed however you just jump straight over. come on Gee!!

 There's no sound in the video because that's how the file was sent to me from La Bresse this morning. With or without sound, Gee is frickin' moving.

 unbeleivable, i know theres a big difference between ridding a course to seeing it rode through the eye of a contour in the sence that its easier to see whats comming and what the grounds like but damn this vid deffo shows why gee is pretty much on the podiums all the time coz watching the vid i barely had time to see the ground in the corners and gee just rides them like they aint there at all,total respect for gee and all other riders at this level, awesome..

 I think they muted the sound because by the looks of it you'd think Gee had a engine strapped to the bike
  • 1 0
 haha,yeah it would of sounded like f15 engines with the speed gee was hauling
  • 16 2
 let me guess! the wind nose was so bad from the contour they just turned the sound off?
  • 4 1
 As opposed to any other camera with an onboard mic when you're riding like the wind? You think other camera brands magically make wind noise disappear?

 GoPro seems to be a good magician Wink

 haha he´s hitting all of these big lines that are almost vertical with huge drops on slippery grass and he makes it look easy. Big Grin Gee´s gonna win it!

 Surely this track is far too short to be used for World Cups?

 Quality not quantity, it still sets people apart, look at the quali results

 no sound! just spent the 1st view trying to work out why my headphone had no sound lol, that was sick

 IMO, this track seems pretty lame. Maybe because Gee is railing the hell outta it, it just seems short. I dunno. For a WC race, this may be the weakest track yet. Not that it looks like an easy course by all means, but c'mon, less ski slope grass and wood, and more tech/rocky trails in the woods would be nice.
  • 3 1
 totally agree. The first half of the track is mostly just grass.

 I second that, weak looking track fo sho.

 Third. Looks like the most boring DH track yet.

 Whoa I never knew they go so freakin' fast!
  • 2 1
 I'm with you on that one, this is one of the only videos where i can see the difference between "slower" world cup riders!
  • 4 3
 Sorry to be neg.. But I really don't like the contours.. They are so jumpy and glitchy.. Not the best quality :/
  • 1 1
 It doesnt show me the video Frown , bad cack that like
  • 3 6
 go pros rule, and drift HDs are as good if not better
  • 12 2
 If the video is jumpy or glitchy then you may want to try watching it on a different computer. It plays perfectly smooth on my machine. As with any HD video the speed of the processor will have a big influence on how smoothly the video plays.
  • 6 1
 It is real smooth on mine too... love contour by the way

 Contour's video player always takes a while to get started, once it gets started it is fine tho. On another note, i had a dream about riding this track last night, although some of the Claw's Invitational course was mixed in there. i was a bit puzzled about why they would have skinnies on a downhill track.

 I wish I had dreams like that... I still have dreams about woody and buzz light-year fighting off giant crabs trying to destroy a sacred watermelon

 Ive not seen many videos but it seems like all the men are just making the last jump. Are the women not going to be pretty f*cked?

 think danny should have one of these strapped to his helmet
  • 2 1
 wow, WTF are his contour settings as I can't get a single video to not get wash-out when going from shadows to light and vice-versa...?
  • 1 0
 2 minutes 7 seconds...wtf how short is that for a worlds course?
There are tons of tracks in scotland and wales and england longer than that!

 Really fast ! It's fun to see what confidence does... Look a the line choices in the rocky sections ! : )
With all this grass: hope it won't rain...
