 love these videos and like the format change, nice work! I realize that they are put together pretty quickly but having a map and highlighting the section thats being explained may help us understand the sections and course a little better. -also knowing the grade.

 quick suggestion for the ghost comparison: Add the start numbers to the displayed names. So those viewers not familiar with sponsors and jerseys can easily relate your comment to each rider.

 Cathro's videos are so good! It's hard for me to see the lines he talks about. So I dig it when he slows it down and explains the line choices.

 A reworking of "what's the story in Balamory" today, and a "babity boopy" reference yesterday. Yes Cathro!

 Does anyone have a link to a stream where I can watch the world champs from the UK please?

 It's on the BBC. Redbull is Geo locked (unless you can find a way around it ;-)

 @tremeer023: I wish BBC hadn't bothered and allowed us to continue as usual. iPlayer is crap and it's hard to see when/which channel it's on.

 @gmt: red bull need the English only version. But it works. You don't need iPlayer etc

 @gmt: yes, and without Rob W it just isn't the same (although not the worst commentator, but their source info was poor). I just wanted to watch it on my big screen TV instead of a tablet so made an exception as it's a one off race.
