Two legends, one course walk. The Crankworx Les Gets DH track is long and extremely fast. What will it take to have a good run? Tippie and Gracia give us the inside line.

wow, probably the best course preview/breakdown i've ever seen
(Jun 22, 2018 at 17:34)
no 'probably' about it. That was epic. Thanks guys!

Les Gets should be back on the World Cup circuit! There's no school like the old school

I think CG speaks better English the more he drinks.

would be awesome if this track were on the World Cup circuit-I agree. Red bull however would probably insist on turning it into a bike park track

Redballs is giving out helmets like the health department gives out condoms.

I came here to say the same thing

Very well done by both Tippie and Cédric. Also hey, surprise guest appearance from Peaty! Will he do the mid-course stop for a beer this time?
A little difficult to hear Cédric sometimes, surprisingly, but I got used to that.

The new Standard for track walks. I feel like I owe Mr. Gracia a coaching fee after this...
(Jun 22, 2018 at 22:44)
I honestly expected this to be way more annoying. Pleasantly surprised that this was very educational and they were bot super mellow.

Ha! Thought exactly the same. Both these men, together!! But heh, they were concentrated and educational.

More Cedric on Inside The Tape!!
(Jun 22, 2018 at 18:21)
Yes, that was fantastic.

I really hope Crankworx shows us the first wooden jump after the start and cuts then to the grass section at the end. That'll be the best use of their two cameras.
Can someone tell me where this starts? I know Michaela Gatto (sp?) will tell me it starts right here, but, where is here?
Bring on the hype machine that is a Crankworx broadcast. Athletes deserve more than the drivel they get currently...
Two thumbs up to CG and Tippie though. Great track walk.

A current racer trying to keep his cards to his chest like be smooth, keep those brakes open, yada yada. Which is fair enough. But THIS is what we want to hear. Ex WC Racer telling freely every detail he sees on track. TOP!

Cedric has always been one of my hero's, he knows his stuff, and can ride too!!!!
(Jun 22, 2018 at 18:51)
he knew the track better than men know their wives
(Jun 23, 2018 at 6:23)
he also knows their wives better than their men do
(Jun 22, 2018 at 23:52)
This is great work, you can see why both these guys are paid to be ambassadors. More like this please PB
(Jun 22, 2018 at 21:05)
I wish this track was still used on the WC circuit
(Jun 22, 2018 at 18:47)
This the most quiet i've ever seen CJ. Proper sick!
(Jun 22, 2018 at 20:00)
yeah, he seemed really tired, not his usual self.
(Jun 23, 2018 at 3:40)
Would love to find a clip of that crash Cedric was talking about that left him behind Peaty.
