 That track looks strangely enjoyable to ride compared to some of the world cup stops.

 Its a fun track to ride but its high speed, has high features and is easy to make a mistake and wreck yourself. Shame they havent got the gondola jump in it this year.

 No lens cap on a GoPro surely and the audio worked, must have either had it pointing in the wrong direction or wrong video mode

 @DC1988: the Max lens mod comes with a lens cap, unlikely it was still on though, they get lost within hours and gopro don't stock spares.

 Ben is older, wiser and knows a good warm up is required before hitting warp speed!

 The huffin and puffin adds more depth than the POV. If you’re not struggling, people are screaming bikepark

 With the recent announcement of team entry fee’s shooting up for next years World Cup, it’d be interesting to see how much a single race and all the rounds currently cost the pink bike team. I assume there won’t be a team next year???

 GoPro strikes again? The number of times I've heard the long dreaded beep mid-run of my video being corrupted...

 Before you even mentioned the challenges of talking and riding the track, I was wondering how the hell you could do it as good as you did. Well done, sir!

 What do you reckon - top five within same 3 seconds? I think it could still be that close.

 Fort William wasn't a long track?

 @ryansimonovich: mostly one line so not a lot of differentiation amongst the riders choices in their race runs
