 I think because it looks pretty slow... with gopro, this course would have looked way faster!! Nice riding, hope he will do well in race Wink

 Because Gopros obviously make everything look faster..... *eyeroll*

 Why would any camera make this course look any faster? Put it on a fast rider and it's going to look fast. Put it on me, it's going to look slow. Camera has nothing to do with it.

 Atherton's camera kinda sucked. Really jerky footage compared to the others.

 its mainly to do with how the camera is set up tbh. GoPros come by default to be more wide angle and so look faster. Then the blurry / jerky is the frame rate / resolution selection. I know that they both are roughly 1080p @ 30fps or 720p @ 60fps. whilst 30fps is fine for stuff like paragliding and wingsuit flying, action sports really need the extra fps. Then theres also battery / memory saving to bring it down even lower, so i wonder as to why the brought them down? maybe so that they could record more footage to analyse later in the evening?

 The Replay camera's resolution looks superb through the shadows, then straight into the sun light!

 @lacykemp
of course you`re right, but I just wanted to say, that just the the gopro wide angle at F5 gives you a faster feeling (because passing trees looks faster...). Riding with GoPro won`t change the time Big Grin But I think we all know, we often feel way faster than we actually are and so do I looking GoPro videos!

 Contours make you look wayyyyyyy faster than any GoPros.

 Super intense course, can't wait to watch the race!
Also, I saw another course cam that has no music and the rider (Jack Reading) commentates whole way down and you can hear how physically demanding it is from his breathing etc, here's the link if anyone wants it:

 Talking through a run seems like a really good way to help yourself memorize the course, especially if you watch the playback over and over. I think i'm going to try that.

 Who says DH isn't an aerobic sport? These runs look to be in the high 3:00 range... like a good 1,600 meter run...

 How to ride like Reading.

 @Reverend, more like a world record 1600 meter run...

 Shez. Reading looks the most pinned out of these. Crazy coarse.

 They should get Rob Warner to do more course cams or track walks.
  • 1 0
 Yeah I hope they do...I was imagining Rob while watching Reading's run..."f*cking hell f*ck f*ck Oh f*ck...Fuuuuuck..."...Let's hope he does one...

 He did it last year or the year before on Steve Peat's bike and that is exactly how it went haha

 Loved Jack Reading's run and commentary - Can't say I know much of him, but I'll be rooting for him!
  • 3 0
 He's one of my favorite riders actually, if you want to check him out more he has a decently interesting blog that he updates with info on each race and what not. Idk, it's sort of interesting to see it from a riders perspective, especially one without huge factory support and mechanics and stuff.

 No problem, and that's my take on it as well! Happy riding dude

 am i the only one that thinks the camera quality is questionable at best? all the "rock gardens" look like flat dirt in most of these. lack of focus, so much blur, impossible to see the course.

 CG is having bad luck for a while now. Lechon has to stand up for the team and make it in the top10!

 What i've seen so far this year he's been getting good results considering how tough the competition is. Shame about the injury, was looking forward to seeing his run this weekend.
