Video: The Story Of World Cup Qualifying

Aug 8, 2014
by Red Bull Bike  

Some have said there's only one line down this mountain, which means any little mistake is going to cost dearly come race day. It also means that to make it to the top of the podium you need to ride on the very edge of what's possible on a downhill bike.

Get a taste of what's to come with the video above then check back on race day for what promises to be one of the fastest, closest races of the season.

 Gees line over the stump was sneaky. So precise. If he doesn't pull up enough or does it to early/late that could be bad news. Crazy how small it looks but how significant a role it plays

 Is your phone faster than your PC in terms of internet connection?

As are you watching the same resolution on both?

 I have a piece of crap laptop that all the Red Bull vids run perfect on. My phone and ipad are always flawless, also (better be for the price tag on them). I have seen many a complaints about the Red Bull vids but have yet to experience any issues. Even when I sit at the bar in a full brew house to watch the races the vids are still perfect on my ipad. Don't know what to say except Gwin for the win!

(today will probably be the day my feed sucks ass)

 As much of a pain in the ass the RB player can be at times (it wasn't working for me last wkend) there is no one else giving us FREE coverage of WC races.

 Because Red bull bought All the rights...
  • 3 0
 I doubt there was much competition for the rights and the red bull coverage is years ahead of freecasters. Look at all the coverage we get over the course of a weekend now. Getting Formula 1 coverage in Ireland is now harder and more expensive than watching the DH world cup. That is amazing.

 the RB player is pants in chrome, but seems ok in safari. How on earth can you make a player not work on the most popular browser?!?
  • 2 0
 Using firebox it works like a charm no issues. A big part of how it runs will be determined by your internet speed too. Live streaming needs to be pretty quick if you want it in HD.

Is it mostly safari users having the problem?
  • 3 0
 Works fine on Chrome for me. And Red Bull owning the rights means....we get to see it. Freecaster didn't lose the rights to Red Bull, they couldn't afford to keep doing it. I love the build up coverage - both RedBull and other peoples short videos are great to watch then the coverage itself is good too - shame we cant see more of the track but I understand that time gaps and so on make it impossible. Seemed like at MSA that the decisive part of the track for both men and women was the top section where there was no footage.

 Actually I tend to have problems with the redbull app in the past. I found if you are watching in a phone go through safari to the direct link not via the app. I always got better results that way.
