Tries to? With impeccable line choice like that it looks like he could actually just keep up with anyone.
(Jun 15, 2019 at 13:17)
My thoughts exactly...!
(Jun 15, 2019 at 13:24)
Looks like its Tracey who tries to keep up with ben's pace

Have we become so politically correct that now we need titles on videos like this one?
(Jun 15, 2019 at 16:10)
: I think you know the answer to that.
(Jun 15, 2019 at 22:39)
: 'have we become' - you obviously haven't. 'need titles' - there is no need, no rulebook, no international title writers code of conduct to obey or disobey. Whoever wrote the title typed words, no sign-off by Mr snowflake aka the imaginative political correcter required. You wanna write the opposite its only viewers you'll be up against. 'videos like this one' - a track preview headcam including two riders of very different standing. Possible reasons for title outlawed by no grey area anti pc thinking: flattery - i.e. she's fast as. Sense of hierarchy - i.e. vlogger (this year) vs. world cup winner (albeit different potential categories). Cathro's perception of how the ride went. Bits we can't see. Politeness. Self-deprecation on the basis of any of the above or none of the above. Literally anything else in the world. A smelly fart. A lonely turtle. But anyway you can't say title these days it has to be shelled creature. Mega waaa

Who knew, Cathro knows something about line choice... Pinner!
(Jun 15, 2019 at 23:03)
: yeah. He only raced with the best in the world for a decade. Who knew?
(Jun 15, 2019 at 23:20)
: i'm so sorry that sarcasm hit a nerve for ya
(Jun 16, 2019 at 5:19)
: It makes you wonder how much better he could have been racing if they made bikes that fit him back in the day.
(Jun 16, 2019 at 11:40)
: Yeah, he has some pretty Sick Skills...
(Jun 16, 2019 at 12:50)
Cathro went 20 seconds faster than Tracey in his race run. Love 'em both!
(Jun 16, 2019 at 13:12)

The number of dudes butt-hurt by a simple headline tells a different story than their usual "We DoN't cArE abOUt feElinGs" motto.

: DO NOT throw milkshake at them.
(Jun 19, 2019 at 11:29)
: he would have been up theee
(Jun 15, 2019 at 12:34)
Tracey seems like one of the raddest most laid back people to ride with. Cathro is fun to watch as well, so loose and controlled all at once.
(Jun 15, 2019 at 13:45)
This Cathro chap has clearly had one of his people walk the track in advance and analyse all the best lines. That very idea may well catch on!
(Jun 15, 2019 at 13:59)
lines seemed to be pretty on point
(Jun 15, 2019 at 16:52)
Ben is great but as his title card states
Cut and Paste.
This is 2 runs stitched together.
Trace literally disappears at 1:38
(Jun 15, 2019 at 20:10)
Possibly Tracy stopped to study/practice a section? That corner right before she "dissapears" was an awkward one, i'd put money on her going back up to try it again...buuut you could be right
**i watched it again and there's a couple other edits in the mix... so,yeah... burn the witch!
(Jun 15, 2019 at 13:17)
I'd be curious to see what Ben could put on a full gas race lap
(Jun 15, 2019 at 17:58)
He tended to crash from what he's said in the past.
(Jun 16, 2019 at 16:12)
: Is he not racing? I assume not since he has the line choice videos, but damn, he's fast.
(Jun 16, 2019 at 19:20)
: no, he doesn't race world cup DH anymore. He runs a rider skills training company so you could learn from him directly if you really wanted to...
(Jun 16, 2019 at 23:37)
13th overall! hes got pace
(Jun 15, 2019 at 13:56)
Ben Cathro bike check! And I want Jordie to go through that suspension.
(Jun 15, 2019 at 14:19)
Pretty sure he's got videos of his current builds on his youtoob channel
(Jun 16, 2019 at 4:04)
I'd like to see a video of Ben and Tracey when they've both learnt the track and with Ben doing his side by side analysis of where each of them is quicker and discussing why that was with Tracey.
I think it would be really interesting to see where line-choice vs. strength vs. aerobic/anaerobic fitness makes the difference. I'm guessing Tracey is physically fitter as she's a full-time current world-cup racer. It would be interesting to see them both in the gym too to get an idea of how relatively physically strong they are too.
Men's times are faster at the top level, it would be fascinating to delve into exactly why.
(Jun 16, 2019 at 9:27)
Apart from the line choice he was quite a bit faster pretty much everywhere, I think in a racing environment he'd have no problem beating her time, which is quite expected, exmple: at Leogang elite women's winner: 25.096 equals men's
(coincidentally they are both Athertons).
(Jun 15, 2019 at 16:32)
Why isn't cathro on the fantasy list
(Jun 16, 2019 at 5:41)
he is on mine
(Jun 16, 2019 at 19:42)
Which fantasy list though? *wink wink*
(Jun 15, 2019 at 15:55)
Sorry but he was way faster than Trace - whats with the title?
Seeing Ben ride makes his analysis even more amazing - plenty of people who talk the talk, but be he rides the ride moreso
(Jun 15, 2019 at 15:59)
Ben himself titled the video „Trying to keep up with Tracey Hannah // CRANKWORX DOWNHILL 2019”
(Jun 15, 2019 at 16:38)
christ it's just a polite title why are you all getting so upset by it it's two people cruising down a practice lap of a new course ffs quit getting so offended by it
(Jun 15, 2019 at 23:04)
You've never seen him race??! Living under a rock?
(Jun 16, 2019 at 0:04)
: upset? Who’s upset? You sound more upset ;-)
(Jun 17, 2019 at 10:07)
Pay this man the big bucks! Produces high quality content and race coverage on what I imagine to be an extremely low budget
he's probably as fast (or faster) than many of the top WC racers. More follow cams, more race coverage, keep it up Cathro
(Jun 15, 2019 at 12:07)
Cathro be fast!!
(Jun 16, 2019 at 4:48)
Cathro for course previews!
(Jun 16, 2019 at 5:41)
First half of the track, but then it's like they take a green run back to the lodge..
(Jun 15, 2019 at 14:43)
Is Cathro racing tomorrow?
(Jun 15, 2019 at 15:38)
He is on the start list
(Jun 16, 2019 at 3:00)
: Braw sir!
(Jun 15, 2019 at 13:28)
Unfortunately the camera angle wasn’t the best so maybe the title has the true meaning trying to catch up (on camera),but nice trails
(Jun 15, 2019 at 21:07)
Cathro>>>> dang auto correct
(Jun 15, 2019 at 20:57)
Tall boy is fast!
(Jun 15, 2019 at 18:45)
She's there and then she isn't... what's up with that?
(Jun 15, 2019 at 19:57)
Two runs videoed and stitched together?
(Jun 16, 2019 at 1:35)
Rad looking track.
(Jun 15, 2019 at 15:01)
Pretty darn good rider.
(Jun 15, 2019 at 21:06)
Cathoir is legit!
(Jun 15, 2019 at 14:00)
camera angle giving me a headache
(Jun 15, 2019 at 12:56)
awesome how good his suspension was set up.
(Jun 15, 2019 at 15:08)
Just left Tracey for dust at the end there
Below threshold threads are hidden
(Jun 15, 2019 at 12:14)
Ben's videos are decent and insightful when he's picking other people's lines but what a tosspot move trying to undercut Tracey and potentially causing a crash/injury to WC leader.
(Jun 15, 2019 at 12:23)
(Jun 15, 2019 at 14:20)
Not really his fault if her line choice and speed are subpar in a section...I’m sure Ben was expecting to have to push it to keep up, apparently not.
(Jun 15, 2019 at 15:49)

(Jun 15, 2019 at 14:13)
: thx dude
(Jun 15, 2019 at 12:40)
This should be WC instead of Leogang...
(Jun 15, 2019 at 13:08)
Please don't! CWS is enough.
If Innsbruck becomes a DHWC stop while still not building trails around, I'd go out and protest!
(Jun 15, 2019 at 15:40)
(Jun 15, 2019 at 16:09)
Way too short for a wc worthy track imo
(Jun 15, 2019 at 13:21)
(Jun 15, 2019 at 16:22)
And just think. She’s that fast with actual XX chromosomes.
(Jun 15, 2019 at 16:45)
Is this a transphobic and totally unnecessary comment about Kate? If so then I'm sorry to break the news to you but you're a dick. Yep, there, I said it.
(Jun 15, 2019 at 17:09)
: dicks never lie
(Jun 15, 2019 at 23:36)
Without context, this comment doesn't add any insight or humor to the video. With context, it's at best misogynistic, and at worst trans-phobic.
(Jun 16, 2019 at 0:24)
Does that make him male?
(Jun 16, 2019 at 5:06)
: I'm all for inclusion, but let's be real for a minute here. Until we see trans athletes competing in/with male competitions, and being successful, then there will always be debate.
I personally think there should be trans categories. It is unfair to female athletes to ask/force them to compete against physical males. I view it as a form of cheating. If that offends you you need to get out more.
(Jun 17, 2019 at 15:59)
: Not transphobic at all just pointing out facts that you can't seem to handle. kate was born a dude, not a girl and as much as he thinks he's a girl he isn't. There is a reason girls and guys race different categories and no amount of hormone injections are going to change what he really is.
(Jun 19, 2019 at 11:06)
: That's actually something up for debate in gender studies.
Have any of you asked the girls that race against Kate what their opinion is of the situation? Because that's really the only opinion that matters. This isn't about you.
(Jun 19, 2019 at 12:49)
Also “transphobic “ is a term invented by people who hate logic, reason and rationality
(Jun 15, 2019 at 17:35)
Isn’t it a dick move to pass someone you are filming? Or was that not the intent of the video?
