Inside the Tape: Looking for Lines & Big Hucks in the Dust - Vallnord World Cup DH 2019

Jul 6, 2019
by Pinkbike Originals  


This Inside The Tape is presented by Five Ten
.


Ben Cathro inspects one of the gnarliest sections on the World Cup circuit. Vallnord is known for a super steep lower section and over the years more and more lines have been popping up as the course is taped wider.

 BREAKING: new UCI rule. Cathro and Pinkbike are now required to fit a minimum of 5 letters of any trackside logo into frame when filming.

 Excellent video and thanks Ben for all that time spent to feed our nevrotic passions for ideal lines.

Do you think or know if the competing riders actually watch your videos during tests and qualies?

Also: isn`t it tendencious to compare riders at each other BEFORE the race. For anyone, it is now `handy` to check what better lines the neighbour has done... For example: Cabirou probably knows now that she can save half a second considering the line that Nina Hoffman took.

I don`t know, but if I`d be a pro rider in Vallnord at these times, i would watch Cathro TV Smile

 You got a point there. Kinda waters out some creativity of some of the guys to try out new lines... But it's so good to watch...

 Wonders if the closing scene by the sign was a link back to his analysis where he didn't predict the fastest line.

 Is anyone else having trouble finding where Redbull will be having the livestream? It's showing for the XC but no countdown or page for the DH.
