"Hello" ... more polite than I ever am XD
(Sep 8, 2012 at 22:28)
Here us Aus we just call "RIDER!" or "TRACK!" Most people that race know what it means so everyone is happy.
(Sep 9, 2012 at 2:03)
rider is the usual shout
(Sep 9, 2012 at 2:05)
Here us Malaysia we just call "BIKE BIKE BIKE" Most hikers and joggers hate it .
(Sep 9, 2012 at 3:51)
here in germany we shout "sieg heil"
(Sep 9, 2012 at 6:20)
He also won!
(Sep 9, 2012 at 10:01)
in 'merica its "MOVE!! MOVE!!"
(Sep 9, 2012 at 10:06)
Scotland, OI!!!!! or MOVE!
(Sep 9, 2012 at 10:56)
most people I know just tail gate you down the track too make the person in front look a cunt
(Sep 9, 2012 at 21:43)
hello! is what you say to chicks!!!!!!
(Sep 10, 2012 at 16:19)
Some euro guy wanted past me at Chatel so he shouted "BOP-BOP-BOP-BOP-BOP-BOP-BOP-BOP!"
(Sep 8, 2012 at 21:50)
Fairclough is rad, that narration was awesome.
(Sep 8, 2012 at 22:26)
He is by far the coolest guy on two wheels! Good luck today Brendog!
(Sep 8, 2012 at 23:44)
hahaha dont need the sneaky french taking his lines.
(Sep 9, 2012 at 2:02)
"A bit of a jump there" - Duuuude, that`s huge!
(Sep 8, 2012 at 21:48)
It was so sad to not see him at World Champs. I guess the Brits are just wayyy to strong right now with so many amazing riders who cant all make it.
(Sep 9, 2012 at 2:45)
and you would think with a 4th place at world champs last year would earn him a spot
(Sep 9, 2012 at 3:02)
Brendan was at Worlds but he was reserve rider so if anyone was injured, he would have taken their place. He was a reserve because he had a broken thumb and missed a lot of World Cups.
(Sep 8, 2012 at 21:46)
To cool for pedaling today!
(Sep 8, 2012 at 23:40)
He is calm and composed on the track I'm glad he let the other rider know he was going to pass, unlike Brian lopes At the jeep air downhill preview. I am not down talking Brian he is a real shredder but c'mon..common cortousy.
(Sep 9, 2012 at 0:00)
I actually found it humorous. Brian Lopes can blast by me any day!
(Sep 9, 2012 at 11:25)
Unfortunately, I have heard from a couple people that met B-lopes that he's an A-hole. Too bad, I respect the guy, but a little less now.
(Sep 9, 2012 at 13:12)
I think its safest to just blow past. People sometimes freeze in the middle of the track or cut in front of you. Not saying anything keeps people acting predictable. I'll usually call out the side i want to pass on.
(Sep 10, 2012 at 22:30)
Yes for sure I have to agree with you. When I'm passing I will call out "on your left" or "on your right" and when the person in front of me moves clearly out of my way I will pass when the time is right. Like I previously said common courtesy.
(Sep 8, 2012 at 22:29)
That was the best POV course preview and narration I've seen.
(Sep 9, 2012 at 0:45)
Best course run ever! He even said "what up!" in the middle of explaining the course, what a legend!
(Sep 9, 2012 at 2:27)
when he is pedaling, he stills talking...if I do the same, I probably dead of asphyxia !
The Gopro angle in the "full speed" berms is awesome !
If you want to see an amateur riding the same track, this is my friens 3 weeks ago :
(the vidéo start at the end of the pedaling section !)
(Sep 9, 2012 at 0:04)
"Hello" sneaky french, dont be stealing my lines.. Hahaha
(Sep 8, 2012 at 22:08)
Bahaha friendliest "hello!" ever
(Sep 9, 2012 at 1:15)
traffic on the way XD helloooo
(Sep 9, 2012 at 4:22)
saw Brendog in Morzine last week, it's fair to say his new gambler is beautiful!
(Sep 9, 2012 at 8:46)
2nd this. Saw it at Combe Syd BDS and I wanted it :L Brendan looks so good riding too, love his style
(Sep 9, 2012 at 20:49)
Here in Canada we call Beer. It always pulls the rider towards the side of the track
(Sep 9, 2012 at 11:18)
"Bit of a jump there." at 1:04, Have never jumped that far in my life. lol
(Sep 9, 2012 at 5:13)
He is an amazing rider and although I've never met the guy he seems like a really cool down to earth guy. I want his Scott Gambler DH bike!!
(Sep 8, 2012 at 22:05)
tree sections are the best. like backcountry skiing
(Sep 9, 2012 at 16:17)
at times the video didn't look so...."high quality"............. ??????????
(Sep 8, 2012 at 22:07)
That was funny. Keepin it secretive
(Sep 9, 2012 at 3:03)
cant believe he dropped the f bomb. hahaha legend.
(Sep 9, 2012 at 12:46)
I want to ride that track sooooo bad, its probs way harder then it looks but damn it looks fun
(Sep 8, 2012 at 23:49)
What a chill guy. Good luck tomorrow Brendog!
(Sep 8, 2012 at 21:53)
Anybody else use the same free film burn in this video? hehe
(Sep 8, 2012 at 23:22)
(Sep 9, 2012 at 0:35)
"AW, we got some traffic in the way"! haha!
(Sep 9, 2012 at 10:56)
Not surprised he won after watching that. So relaxed. Sounds like a top guy as well.
(Sep 9, 2012 at 7:13)
"Big packer, with a crowd, they loved it" Hahah, awesome sentence Brendan!
(Sep 9, 2012 at 15:47)
His voice is like Bear Grylls'
(Sep 9, 2012 at 21:01)
how does it sounds so clear? is there a mic hooked up?
(Sep 10, 2012 at 10:54)
haha pedal pedal pedal
(Sep 10, 2012 at 9:04)
Brendawg is the man! Always puts a smile on your face!
(Sep 9, 2012 at 4:27)
1st bit into to woods and through the roots is a joke! RAPIIIDDDDDD
(Sep 9, 2012 at 2:22)
So cool to be able to say I've ridden some of that!
(Sep 9, 2012 at 1:48)
try that on 125mm, bit more interesting :L
(Sep 9, 2012 at 5:36)
You crazy Welsh.
Next thing you'll say 'try it with a sheep, bit more interesting'.
(Sep 9, 2012 at 6:58)
(Sep 9, 2012 at 1:38)
The course is the "bike patrol" line. So fun to ride
(Sep 9, 2012 at 10:50)

(Sep 8, 2012 at 22:39)

(Sep 9, 2012 at 6:49)
