 Dam.... Troy making that look too easy. I have been very fortunate to have chances to ride with alot of pros local and a few world class. Already know they make everything look terribly easy while we white knuckle trying to keep up. He is the local so more preasure but would not be suprised to see him with the win saturday.

 @bman33: isn't multiplying by 100% multiplying by one?

 @micahaalders3: amen bruh, 3G on my phone whilst sat on the toilet and it was grand. What's the problem?

 Sing it. It absolutely sucks

 For sure!!!! What the hell
  • + 6
 Specifically - there are no player controls, no way to view in a full size monitor window, and no way to select the streaming quality. I.E. Red Bull must believe that the vast majority of their viewers are using small format smartphones to access their site, so why bear the cost of delivering 1080p when the average peep is only 'seeing' 480p on their tiny screens. At least that is my theory. ;-)

 Dear Redbull i hope you booked Claudio for the next 10 years couse i dont want to see anyone else on course preview Wink
  • + 3
 @Kerplunk: @Kerplunk: what are you watching it on? i can change the quality,upto 720 and view in full size monitor window..
  • + 1
 yes it does!!
  • + 1
 double reply sorry (edit)
  • + 1
 @ad15: I am running a current PC build on Windows 10. I have tried both Edge and Firefox with the same lack of player controls. So, if you have controls then it is probably a common plug-in that I need to update. Thanks!
  • + 1
 But it is good on live!
  • + 1
 @Kerplunk: no worries, I'm watching it on a mac using safari. which surprises me as normally PC based media players are the first things to not work on mac.

 "TROY! TROY! WAIT FOR ME!"

...says basically anyone behind Troy.
  • + 11
 Not gwin
  • + 39
 Seriously. When only 10 people in the world have a shot at being faster than you on any given day, you're smokin' fast.
  • + 8
 you mean.........Cole Trickle
  • + 1
 and not Loic, before his ground kiss xD
  • + 64
 Not a single "oioioi" or "where am I going" from Claudio this time. This must be an easy track then.
  • + 8
 I was thinking he looked slow and out of sorts in a lot of spots. Especially with Troy blazing through seemingly without much effort, I'm thinking this track is a tad quirky, at least for Claudio.
  • + 23
 It's because this time the Frenchies weren't around to dig out all the mud from between the take offs and the landings. That's how they are, those Frenchies!
  • + 1
 More like he was too scared. Prob thinking to self...I gotta quit doing this shit.
  • + 2
 Not trying to be rude at all, Claudio is great. It's what I'd say if I were him, esp having to ride through all conditions...damn boss though.
  • + 59
 I'm Convinced high fives are the foundation of mountain biking

 Aside of new wheel size formation Big Grin
  • + 30
 Those troy cams are the best part. he clears things so easy and rides so damn smooth!
  • + 9
 Agreed. Id love to see his whole run.
  • + 2
 @Josefe: I think he does upload them to his facebook occasionally.
  • + 1
 @Hiltonmoyle: He has a YouTube Channel I believe, where he uploads pretty much everything so I reckon this would be on there.
  • + 2
 Brendan and Ratty...same. The hangtime is so frickin sick.
  • + 2
 @rcrdrvr: that brendan ratty video is so killer!
  • + 1
 @rcrdrvr: At school, youtube is blocked sorry :/
  • + 31
 I tripled it! I doubled it.
  • + 3
 best part hahaa
  • + 43
 I thought he said "He tripled it, I doubled it."
  • + 30
 can't really get enough of the claudio course previews haha
  • + 23
 Sitting here in the hospital with a freshly broken collarbone.. this really keeps me optimistik and makes the good weather out there bearable for me
  • + 14
 Good luck with recovery. The mountains are calling.
  • + 3
 Yeah I snapped my ligament in my thumb last sunday. Good times..
  • + 5
 Torn rotator cuff. Sitting out is hard!
  • + 2
 Been riding with a separated for the past two seasons. No fun when it pops out!
  • + 2
 @csyhoss: Feel for ya. Tore mine last August. I'm not getting it fixed until I can stand 6mo off the MTB. Surgeon is my riding buddy. Pain is only weakness leaving the body.
  • + 2
 Good and quick recovery to anyone here! And most important.. ride on!
  • + 2
 Mu buddy tops ya all out. He got twins.

 @WAKIdesigns: Sorry to hear man.. And it allways hits the ones that deserve it the least.. ;(

 @EinLurch: he's out for at least 3 years. Children are the meaning of life Big Grin Heal up man, make the best of it!
  • + 16
 Watching Claudio will never get old Razz
  • + 13
 Yeah but he will. I'm curious to see his course previews in 15 years!
  • + 1
 Yes, in xc circuit haha
  • + 3
 @torero: actually his XC preview was one of his funniest
  • + 15
 Wonder when he will make the course preview of a slopestyle track...
  • + 4
 Fiat nine knights imagine !!
  • + 11
 I think Rob should do the course preview at Fort Bill this year. With Peaty as guest rider, in honour of his retirement!
  • + 2
 I second this...although Claudio can be in there too along with Ratty and the rest o the lads...train.
  • + 9
 Claudio is so awesome! I think he does the best job of anyone in the MTB video world or relaying his excitement when he cleans a jump or obstacle. I could watch his vids all day long.
  • + 9
 When you see how fast Claudio is going and how much he's left behind when Troy puts the gas, you can imagine how quick the top guys are!
  • + 7
 The root and rock sections......I cant imagine how insanely treacherous this track must be when it's wet.

flag Potok (Apr 20, 2016 at 13:34) (Below Threshold)
 wet in australia?
  • + 1
 @Potok: this track is in the wet tropical bit of the country. At a work project of mine just south of cairns we get approx 3000mm of rain per year on average.Of course most of that falls in the wet season between nov and march
  • + 8
 I DIT I DIT I DIT!

 It was interesting to hear Claudio describing the sections of the track from some of Troy's input (e.g. recommended line choice, where the track may be won or lost)
  • + 4
 Claudio reminds me (sounds like) a Euro version of Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys. This is a good thing...
  • + 5
 Claudio is the best. ...aaand he is Grover from Sesame St.
  • + 3
 If it stays dry, I have a feeling this truck is gonna jump up and bite a few guys come race day. Their gonna be pushing hard and this track looks to favor consistency.
  • + 5
 Troy's dad is showing some excitement on the side line
  • + 6
 Claudio is a legend!
  • + 3
 After watching the fitness test at the last world cup I want to see Warner chase Claudio down the track. A two part segment preview of the track.
  • + 5
 that track looks as smooth as a baby's bum

 I was thinking 'hardtail' the whole vid. I suspect however, reality is slightly differant. That said.....
  • + 2
 i LOVE when DH races end up on flat sections like this one. It's always a treat to see the racers struggling to pedal on these bikes ^^
  • + 2
 What amazes me about Claudio is he is able to talk going as fast as he does. There is no way I could do that. He must be so incredibly fit.
  • + 2
 Yeap, Im thinking about that too. It's a really hard to shread fast and not just speaking but be so funny as he is)
  • + 1
 Claudio is normally reasonably fast on the previews but he genuinely struggled with this one. Troy was playing about big time with whips and skids......or maybe Claudio was just dodging Drop Bears........
  • + 4
 Troy can disappear in 3-4 seconds.
  • + 2
 Okay. I'm ready for Troy to win. Good kid. Never seen anything bad about him. He is Specialized/Indie if there can be such a thing.
  • + 1
 saw the numbers, and tought it was not a real hard gnarly track for the pro riders... but after watching this, i think it´s suitable for the WC!
  • + 2
 I honestly think that the main reason I get excited for WC season is less about the races and more about Claudio
  • + 1
 Im australian and this is probably the worst world cup venue ever. Theirs so many more place in aus which woukd be much betger for not only dh but xc!!!
  • + 3
 thanks again Claudio, too good!! HE'S TOO FAST!
  • + 1
 Hmmmm, not nearly as gnarly as the other WC tracks... How many guys will go with a single crown fork I wonder?
  • + 2
 Small mistakes gonna cost lots of time.
  • + 3
 i win i win i win.....
  • + 1
 It sure would be nice to watch this non pixelated !!! P.S. It's not my network connection!!!!
  • + 1
 Really cool track. Totally different from Lourdes. Lots of pedaling – should make for different podiums too
  • + 2
 Claudio never fails to make me laugh hahaha
  • + 1
 They totally shouldn't edit this at all, it sure be start to finish! I love these vids!
  • + 1
 I always gravitate towards these so i can hear that nervous laugh, great stuff!
  • + 2
 Why does RedBull say "(Dirty)" in the vid title?
  • + 1
 The guy who uploaded it was also uploading something to pornhub and got the titles mixed up.
  • + 1
 He's like "here we go into the XC section" and it's basically a dirt sidewalk.
  • + 1
 I'm pretty sure I saw Claudio last Friday at Changi Airport, Singapore. I stared a bit too long.
  • + 1
 Judging from the RAW footage I take it back. Rock garden looks gnarly!
  • + 1
 Keep it vlean Claudio! Love this man.
  • + 1
 I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of that.

 @buspilot was that you at 3:50?
  • + 1
 Yeah brah.. I felt a touch of Claudiomania, dizzy spells and crazy urges to run down the track nattering!
  • + 1
 @buspilot: haha! I totally get it. That's rad to be a part of that scene. Have fun!

 Travel halfway around the world for that course??? It sucks. Dissapointing at best.
