 haha^ That was the best episode of this is peaty so far ! Looked like they had so much fun
  • + 38
 Claudio 4 president
  • + 6
 Ha, when I heard that in the vid, I was wondering if it would be first comment.
  • + 4
 @bigburd its been a good 3 years of this is peaty but its time to say good bye Frown (CRY) (CRY)
  • + 12
 Read on another thread that 'This is Peaty' will be back when Peaty is back on the bike and racing again... Smile So, fingers crossed.
  • + 7
 this is by far the best leogang course ever!

 @koyla forget president, claudio 4 world leader
  • + 155
 Am I the only one hear wondering how Claudio is still alive after crashing with a helmet cam on?!
  • + 12
 i laughed
  • + 10
 Claudio I crashed, so I sing a song
  • + 2
 He kept me on goose bumps all of the video....I was thinking stop talking and focus you are going too fast !!!! That is a real DH course
  • + 89
 Ratboy , please be careful on that bridge jump ! They both over jumped it at half speed
  • + 13
 I overshot it by quite a distance as well, and I'm not even that fast
  • + 12
 remember gwin nearly going otb on it during world champs 2012?
  • + 2
 @nhp890 I still don't get why they didn't make it bigger. People were overshooting it 12 years ago. Went there as a 16 year old kid and I had very little skill so I was very surprised to land with one wheel on the flat even though I was a really bad rider back then.
  • + 71
 Nice lines Claudio! I hope u become that loose and fun in the commentary booth too..have fun and goof off with warner; red bull has got him too worried about being a pro sportscaster.
  • + 2
 I'm pretty sure warner is off at an X-Fighers event and won't be commentating. not 100% though
  • + 10
 warner will be there for sunday
  • + 16
 It seems like the commentating has been tamed down for this season but honestly, I think he's most energetic and insane while riding his bike, haha. He's doing awesome for his first legit year of announcing and his track previews are still awesome so that's chillin. That last jump has gotten quite large... wild. YOU GOT IT MANON!!!

 you guys were a little bit disapointed too about claudi commentating in comparaison with our expectations ? he's not as crazy as when he rides tht's clear... ²it will come with time I guess
  • + 51
 It's nice from Greg to not burn him completely down.
  • + 18
 Yeah I think he was even holding back too much at the start.
  • + 37
 Minnaar pretending to be slow so nobody wins no boxxer this weekend

 Claudio for Rampage course preview this year!

 Being completely series here. How would you do a course preview for Rampage? It's held on a mesa in Virgin, UT. Everyone digs their own line; there is no "course". "Well, this is this year's mesa. See ya later!"...?

 Here, I'll save you the trouble.

 I still wanna see some wc course previews next year, dont end his life this early
  • + 4
 @leduke

It's not always about the "how", sometimes it's just about the "why the fu*k not"!

 facetious:

the only word in the English language containing every vowel in order.

 ... not sure if believe you.

 Let me know when you're done reading the dictionary
  • + 6
 Abstemious
  • + 3
 good one
  • + 20
 Absurd style by Greg. He's going faster than 99% of riders in the world on that run and it looks like he's giving it 20% effort. Look at the gap he pulls in that first rock garden. Nuts.
  • + 7
 It's amazing how relaxed he looks.
  • + 5
 if he stays on podium for this race, he's probably going go be up there fighting for the overall until the end... and for the worlds....
  • + 1
 650b magic ! or not ......
  • + 19
 The tape on the right side of that last drop is prolly going to cause the same controversy as last year. They should make that section wider.
  • + 12
 The problem wasn't that it's wide or narrow though, the problem was that it moved mid race. So Bernard got disqualified for landing off a blind drop in a place that was part of the track last time he saw it.
  • + 2
 Ahhh..... Thanx!
  • + 12
 Minnaar is a beast hitting the course like that without walking it
  • + 9
 Just ridiculous talent. Insanely lazy style too.
  • + 7
 Rat Has a similar style... Big Bodys, lazy Body talk but fast riding
  • + 11
 You know you're a pro when you can sing Foo Fighters while riding this track!
  • + 11
 Best part of the week, good fun!
  • + 10
 Man I hope Claudio commentates Rampage this year.
  • + 9
 I think Claudio might be a Foo Fighters fan..
  • + 5
 and PJ as well..
  • + 1
 I thought he was singing "I'm still alive" by Pearl Jam...
  • + 7
 That looks such a great track to ride, good mix of techy roots and flat out jumps! gonna be a good weekend Big Grin
  • + 2
 Leogang did a very good job revamping the track!
  • + 4
 No one's noticed that they've tightened the tape on that last drop, where Brenard Kerr got Robbed of a good position last year. The UCI officials disqualified him for breaking the tape (not passing a pole) but subsequently moved the tape back for the rest of the field.

Who's idea was that?
  • + 4
 Redbull, get the ROCK SECTIONS! I understand you want the most bang for your buck (so to speak) with camera coverage but... this is DOWNHIL not XC..

Also, please tell your camera men to not zoom in too close on the rider that we don't see the wheels on the ground during the technical bits. Geez!

Thanks for not charging us to watch the event... I'm sure advertising helps on that front though.

BTW I'm drinking a redbull as I write this. Peace.
  • + 6
 Am I the only one who thinks Claudio sounds like Fozzie bear from the muppets when he does these?
  • + 7
 Good thing he survive that 16.3g impact!!!
  • + 7
 Claudio. Bring THAT kind of commentary to the race.
  • + 6
 4:01 you know its steep when it looks steep in the video
  • + 4
 He can commentate, he can sing, and boy-oh-boy, he can really ride! 3 careers all wrapped together in one Claudio. Really, you gotta love the guy
  • + 3
 going by recent videos it doesn't look like that all anymore but got to love Claudio and greg a load of mates got to ride with greg at porc during the week lucky lucky b******s
  • + 1
 Yeah I saw a vid on facebook, whole course is just a river now!
  • + 2
 Wait..hold up...Minnaar was at Penshurst this week?
  • + 1
 yes he was
  • + 4
 Is it a running gag that I don't get regarding the spectators who show their naked buts to the cam, eg at 0:54?

Besides that, great video!
  • + 9
 Was funny as hell when the syndicate done it to Brendog & Claudio.
"Are you doing mangina" -Steve Peat 2014

 I think all those bare asses are racers having fun with claudio, they really end up chopping the hell out of it for the live streams though, hahaha
  • + 2
 Haha, great. Thanks guys
  • + 4
 Not sure I would trust those stats. 58degrees vertical? 193 bpm and he is still talking? 16g in a small crash. I'm skeptical.
  • + 2
 love it! greg using claudios lines without having walked the track! sundays gunna be wild, greg slaying in the wet, if anyone can he can haha
  • + 2
 30 seconds at the end of darkness to appreciate the skill to commentate whilst riding that fast! Another great course review!
  • + 3
 These are always so good. Chasing Greg Minaar would be so epic. Great job Claudio!
  • + 4
 Course preview moon seems to be obligatory these days!
  • + 2
 so many bare asses
  • + 4
 Been waiting all day for this!!!
  • + 3
 Watching Minnaar ride is dreamy. The Claudio/Minnaar combo made my day!
  • + 2
 give me some rope I'm coming lose I'm hanging on you ! jajajajaj Claudio is the guy
  • + 3
 That video was so nice I watched it twice
  • + 3
 Foo fighters and Pearl jam, sweet Claudio!
  • + 1
 He should not give up his day job for a singing career. Unless it's during a track preview. It's like kelly mcazza humming a tune durring rampage. Love it.

 Gstaad Scott vs Syndicate. Is this a trade-team video, or a not-a-trade-team video?
  • + 2
 Anyone notice the inflatable crocodile underneath the gap jump acting as padding?
  • + 2
 what is he using to show us the speeds he reaches and his heart rate while he rides?
  • + 1
 Not sure but Lit Pro has something similar www.youtube.com/watch?v=UT1Mr_01Bfs
  • + 2
 Claudio and Minaar They could have done a coursepreiew down the sidewalk in Leogang and it would still be rad
  • + 1
 That last jump is a monster! Might see some carnage if anybody cases during the race run
  • + 2
 YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS!
  • + 1
 i guess it's the redbull player that's shit as all my other vids are streaming fine apart from this one
  • + 1
 You have to change it to 720p each time you watch a video on it as it always resets to 240 or some pish like that.
  • + 1
 cheers
  • + 2
 I Wanna see Gwin lead the course preview next time.
  • + 2
 Hope Gwin can keep his tires mounted...
  • + 1
 After the rain this track is gonna be gnarly. We are in for one hell of a race Sunday.

  • + 1

  • + 2
 a 17.7 meters long TABLETOP, WHAT ????
  • + 1
 i can't believe it too..
  • + 2
 Dude! Claudio Down!!! is that a first for him to have a bail on camera?
  • + 2
 Not the first time, last time he went down was at MSA in 2013 in the berms under the gondola. Still a very good track record considering he is basically speaking all the way down WC level downhill tracks.
  • + 1
 He wiped out last year in Mt Ste Anne, I think. I remember seeing one last year, but not sure of the track.
  • + 3
 In the preview video for Leogang last year, Will Longden has a little accident: https://youtu.be/khY00zN9ny0?t=226
