 I can't think of anything to complain about this one. Well done Cathro and Pinkbike!

 Well I’ve got something to complain about: WE NEED MORE CATHRO-VISION!!!
This video was so good, it really makes me miss last year, when he was doing multiple videos (e.g. trackwalk), especially in such a wildly variating track!
Keep it up, you’re the man!

 I would like to see also his review after the race; which lines were chosen by the riders and with what results.

 can you guys not help red bull TV with camera placement for the live feed? I think your input would only be a good thing in this case

 Can't wait for the redbull feed to zoom in on the riders' wheels and give me no idea what line people are taking

 Ben rocks. Love it. You need people like this in the industry. People that race or have had many races at the elite level and ask the questions that people want feedback about.

 That was so good. That inside/middle.outside section in the open was so good to ghost, super hard to tell which lines were fast just by eyeballing it.

 No inch by inch soil composition breakdown of the entire track? Try harder.

 Outstanding stuff

So when do we get Cathro commenting on the live feed with Rob n Claudio?

 Hoping he's going to be racing the races next year with Walk the Talk. A combination of Covid and breaking his neck seem to have put a stop to his 2020 season.

 Best start to a Friday morning. Looks like the sickest track in many years. Fresh dirt, new lines, everything but a rock garden, steeps, carry section, long... I wish we had onboard footage for every racers runs with live feed for a track like this. Not excited for this afternoon 1 bit. Oh... and Max and Ben on point with their video as always. Imagine a post race breakdown side by side of the top 5 or 10 riders. Compare where they made up and lost time. If only we could have that footage put together with analysis too... please beg for it to happen guys.

 I love this track. I want to ride there one day. Loose, hard, corners, flats and steeps. You have to be an allrounder for this one

 That Fabien though. He is such a connoisseur, pretty sure he and Nico V. could get a Masters Degree in DH.

 Good video Cathro, but how come not an analysis of the whole track?
  • 1 0
 I’m pretty sure putting together 14 mins of video with ghosting n stuff takes a bit of time mate, I expect you’d be waiting until after the race for that
