Raw action from the DH World Champs practice session on Friday in Cairns. It's hot, dry, and dusty out there, but it certainly doesn't look to be slowing any of the worlds best down at all.

awful lot of slo-mo for a raw video...
(Sep 9, 2017 at 16:07)
yeah but the slow-mo was awesome!
(Sep 10, 2017 at 7:35)
Whats with the guy blowing the whistle straight into the riders take off on that last clip...
(Sep 10, 2017 at 9:28)
: they're marshals on the track indicating the rider is clear (of the previous section)

Better play that sam hill race run come sunday
(Sep 9, 2017 at 12:35)
At first I thought they were jumping over that sign, maybe its the angle but it still looks close.

Cow bell in slow mo sounds scary AF
(Sep 9, 2017 at 16:13)
Some of it went into David Lynch territory. I'm scared to go to bed now.

That bird that sounds like a whistle is bloody everywhere

Only thing I can focus on in this video is the amount of Yeow's i heard... its getting out of hand! borderline cringe.
(Sep 9, 2017 at 16:08)
i hear yeow
(Sep 10, 2017 at 4:59)
It's definitely an Aussie thing. All we know how to do at sporting events is chant "Aussie Aussie Aussie" and yell "Yeeeeeew"

I prefer the way vital shoots these videos - the shots are wider and there's a decent effort made to track the riders. This video feels a little compressed/blownout or something too. But that's just me being super nit picky
(Sep 10, 2017 at 5:10)
I think its more to do with the track being in the jungle, its a bit hard to get wide angles when theres 50 trees in the way ahah
(Sep 10, 2017 at 11:34)
: nah vital shoots on wider lenses and actively zooms in / out to track the riders. Imo it's broadcast style coverage instead of edit style Where you're trying to frame Interesting shots

Just for the record, no one was paid for this clip. We shot it as spectators under and over the tape with no access to special areas. It wasnt edited or colour graded, just clips straight out of our cameras thrown onto a timeline and few clips slowed down and exported as raw as it gets. We were too busy drinking beers to spend time editing. Pinkbike picked it up, and showed it, which we are stoked about.

Im gonna have to keep speeding up my footage... this is bruutal fast
(Sep 9, 2017 at 22:43)
I about had a fucking stroke listening to that damn whistle every 6 seconds
(Sep 9, 2017 at 14:38)
Isn't this footage from
? How about a little credit Pinkbike?
(Sep 9, 2017 at 12:36)
Why not follow the riders with the camera and show the course?

Some action for the Canadians ( blocked from seeing it live????)
(Sep 9, 2017 at 17:48)
I read in the comments yesterday you can download opera and set the built in vpn to USA
(Sep 9, 2017 at 17:55)
I downloaded a free vpn trail from zenmate.ca set the ip to the western use. Seems to be working.
(Sep 11, 2017 at 10:00)
Uuugghh I like it raw. And fantastic whistle consistency!
(Sep 11, 2017 at 3:10)
better than the live broadcast..
(Sep 9, 2017 at 17:25)
Fuckin fast as fuck...
(Sep 9, 2017 at 18:21)
That whistle is annoying AF every effin shot but like 2 for shits sake

it's not the most interesting of courses or particularly knarly. I can see why Sam Hill is using his trail bike.
