Remember back when we didn't have CathroVision to take us through all the lines, just a shaky GoPro run from Claudio? This adds so much to the spectator experience!
(Jul 10, 2019 at 12:56)
Yeah, but Claudio's hungover, muppet like screaming will always be missed. Over analyzing each blade of grass and rock isn't near as fun. Informative…yes. Entertaining…no. Plus, F Cathro's hat.
(Jul 10, 2019 at 14:42)
: Huh, I like both. I miss Claudio's runs down the mountain. They were super entertaining, and compared to the track previews we get from the RedBull atheletes now, he went at a speed where you could actually see the features of the track and get a feel for how rough it is.
Cathro's analysis on the other hand makes watching the live stream more interesting because you're a little more informed about the different line choices that make/break a run.
More media=more fun. There's only so many DH World Cups a year, and the more I can enjoy them while they're here the better.

: I for one prefer the trackwalks with Elliot Jackson, think he would also make a great co-commentator with Rob. Cathro goes very in depth, but he just reminds me of the one friend we all have that over analyzes everything from his bike to the track, but is always the last one down the hill. (Allthough Cathro would smoke me any day)
There was a time, not so long ago, when almost everybody on this forum couldn't get enough of Claudio.
She's a fickle mistress this business...
(Jul 11, 2019 at 9:02)
: Couldn't agree more. It's as if everyone has forgotten the key reason why we ride / watch this stuff—FUN.
And again, I do appreciate Cathro's analysis, it's incredibly interesting. It's just not as fun. And again, F his hat.
(Jul 11, 2019 at 13:52)
: I found them refreshing in the beginning, but now I find myself skipping them more often lately. High vs low line, over the rock, skipping the rock, through the decompression, around the decompression... Guess it's just a wee bit of ADD kicking in and I lose interest really quick
And same here, no bad vibes towards Cathro, he seems like a genuine nice dude. But unfortunatly we both went out on a very slippery slope here and outed a small hint of criticism on Ben's track previews. Getting downvoted into oblivion will be our faith, but I'll take it like a man...

How good is Cathrovision. Takes World Cup coverage to another level. Builds the hype and lets us at home get as close to the event as possible.
(Jul 10, 2019 at 13:01)
at least they're adding scrap metal to make it more exciting.
(Jul 11, 2019 at 14:13)
That's the crazy Frenchies do... Oh man came on! I hope track builder never repeat this kind of mistakes, lucky the Bulldog found it..

From its origins (in the 11th century), the village of Les Gets has had wood in its veins… The name “Les Gets” came from the local dialect words “gitte” or “giette” meaning the corridors used to send logs rapidly down the hillside.
(Jul 10, 2019 at 13:58)
I always thought it was because my dad's mate Lesley had a big Glasgow night out in 1973 where he inexplicably woke up in the French alps. As his wife told them at the time, that is what Les gets.

So you're telling me the whole place is named after skid trails? Sweet
(Jul 10, 2019 at 12:37)
this track is gonna be mega physical ! haha who is fit and who can flat turn the best! its gonna be an interesting fantasy team this race.
(Jul 10, 2019 at 12:47)
Too bad Sam Hill isn't around - he'd fit the bill. Given that he's not... think I might update my fantasy league to include the GOAT! Definitely still one of the fittest, strongest riders - and certainly has the experience to know how to handle the course.
(Jul 10, 2019 at 12:48)
: holy crap!!!! Sam Hill would be awesome to see ride this track!
(Jul 10, 2019 at 13:18)
: foot out, flat out!
If Sam was on the course, he'd be my solid bet no question.

"50p, riders are going to be going there, off the edge."
Mr. Cathro laying it all on the line!
(Jul 10, 2019 at 13:47)
i'ts gonna get wild with a little rain...
(Jul 10, 2019 at 21:53)
Anyone got the link to the vibration study article?
(Jul 10, 2019 at 22:31)
(Jul 11, 2019 at 6:10)
Really interesting work. Does explain some of my mates issues when riding.
But the real question is who is the 2cm British Champ rider
(Jul 11, 2019 at 5:04)
good to see non- bowler hat wearing brits in the world media
(Jul 11, 2019 at 14:23)
Ben just keeps getting better and better!

Can't believe we're still talking about bits of track from 2004, look at the progression of slopestyle and freeride. No wonder we are laughed at by sports like motocross, most beginners could get down most of this course, but these guys are some of the best bike riders on the planet.
(Jul 10, 2019 at 13:24)
How much has motocross progressed? Or do they still just ride around a big field with some jumps? Do they have teeter totters or have to pull a mandatory backflip every lap? No? So it's still the same as it was 20 years ago? Right. #progress.
Most beginners could get down this course, if you gave them half an hour. Just like most beginner MX riders could get round an MX course. What makes racing racing is who can do it the fastest. This will be a balls to the wall speed fest with some great (hopefully caught on live TV) action.
(Jul 10, 2019 at 13:40)
LOL What are you on about
(Jul 10, 2019 at 13:28)
YES! Was completely gutted when there was no Cathro-coverage for Vallnord
(Jul 10, 2019 at 14:17)
Pretty sure I was there.
(Jul 10, 2019 at 14:35)
There was bro
(Jul 10, 2019 at 14:49)
Wyn TV was missing in Andorra, not Cathrovision.
(Jul 10, 2019 at 15:33)
Hell yes you were. Great coverage
(Jul 10, 2019 at 23:41)
Really? Can you send me a link to your coverage?
(Jul 10, 2019 at 13:31)
this shit... EWS has better dh. what is happen with dh. XCO has more tech dh.
(Jul 10, 2019 at 14:36)
Did you watch the video
(Jul 10, 2019 at 20:59)
This is will never be better than Claudio.
(Jul 10, 2019 at 21:01)
Hold WTF just realized has he taken over Wyn's spot for track walking????? If so this is BS.
(Jul 10, 2019 at 21:33)
Wyn doesn't work for red bull for his track walks...at least I think not...his content would be censored wayyy to much!
(Jul 10, 2019 at 12:29)
LOL no way that's the World Cup track
