 Cathro is fast!

@wobbem: I'm not a fan either, but in that case it's totally justified. Track is crossing some all year wet spots, which will turn into total bogs once ridden a good number of times. That's easier to maintain.

 @stokedcheech420: really. Needles was one of the most technicnacally proficient riders to race ever and it shows in what he says on the video. He covered so many points there about cornering, line choice, exit speed, going up the track to pick a line not down, where to conserve energy, how much efort to put in and how to ride the track (attack or not to attack), line choice, riders perspective. ... Great inside the tape.
Both are great at what they do.

 Hi Crankworx, for the race footage please can we have some cameras placed at some of the the interesting parts of the track, not just the motorway at the bottom?

 Probably the most boring analysis I`ve seen lastly, so far.
This guy seems to discover what mountain bike is...
... yes: sometimes it slides, sometimes a different lines appears and you take it, or not, sometimes you f*ck it up...
