For episode 056 of The HKT Podcast we are joined by Ben Cathro. Many people will know Ben from his YouTube channel vlogs, his CATHROVISION in-depth track/line video analysis at World Cup races and for recently appearing on 'Inside The Tape' for Pinkbike.

But, there's lots more to Ben than meets the eye. During this episode we chat to Ben about how he started his mountain bike career and the highs and lows of being a young up and coming professional athlete. We also discuss 'that' skinsuit, the real reason why he began creating content on YouTube, Patreon and he also drops some unmissable coaching tips too!

 I've heard this guy is fast as all get out. Maybe GT should throw him a sponsorship. Between Cath and Wyn at least they could have some of the best media presence in the bizz.

 Skilled for sure, but do you think he would even take that offer up anymore? Seems like he’s balls deep in his YouTube and patreon career.

 @4xwednesdays: Obviously you're to blame for that Ronnie Mac thing. I don't have a problem with taking the piss out of anyone but the video just wasn't funny! A full video of acting like a goon on your bike was far too much. A quick joke among friends at a trail head, fine, going full-video-retard, too much.

 I liked Cathro as a racer. Now he's everywhere! He's self-made. And I love it.

 @n1ck: the hat is legendary

 @montysaunders: yeah but... really though? I think the flare is good. Keep that hat for keep-sake. But move on. Get a hat sponsor.

 I like the relaxed style of interviewing. But the host was talking a bit too much about himself for my taste.

 I thought it was fine. when he did have a personal anecdote, it was relevant

 I get that feeling a little but he does use it to get more from the guest so its all good. He does go on a lot about driving all day...

 @glasvagas: and usually motocross..

 All feedback is good back and thank you for listening!

Don't forget though, this is a podcast and not an audio 'interview'. For me a podcast is about the conversation, for sharing stories/experiences and for that you do need at least two people.

 Looking forward to getting home for a listen! I've been really impressed with what Ben does and how friendly he is in person.

 I know these days people say 'like' a lot, but saying like three or four times in every sentence is like ridiculous, and like makes it like, to annoying to listen to.

 Would love to see one of these with Joe Barnes if that was possible. Not the most winning racer or whatever but from what I've seen in other articles and stuff he seems to have a lot of insights and opinions on tactics and techniques and stuff. Cheers
