 the harsh reality is that rob & Claudio know less about commentating a slopestyle event than the guys that were there last year...
  • + 80
 "he goes slower with every turn of the crank" and "a speed wheelie" And last but not least "his friends call him Norby..."- worst commentators in the history of rampage, but it was pretty hilarious listening to them...

Also in loose terrain like that, pedalling in the wrong spots will in fact slow you down. You will lose the flow and thus get a little balled up in holes and bumps. Not pedalling but pumping and working the terrain is better to maintain speed in that kind of environment...

Speed wheelie on the other hand... no idea what they were thinking when they said that haha

 Can we get Claudio to 'Course Preview' Rampage?!
  • + 3
 My Hero!!!!!!
  • + 15
 Why are you defending terrible commentators, but then telling everyone that rob and claudio know less than the terrible commentators....lol
  • + 10
 Hutch, I think your cranks are on backwards if your going slower by pedalling....
  • + 2
 Those guys that commentated last year were worse than horrible. I turned the sound off after a while. Maybe this year they could put some cameras at the interesting parts of the DH runs too! And just to be clear here, we're talking about Claudio, Tippie, and Rob Warner right?
  • + 4
 I love Claudio for his course previews, but that time he commentated wasn't really that great. Warner, however, is a must for any good downhill race! "Look 'ow fast he's going!" "Look at the time!!" Claudio left me wanting more in the commentators box.

 Can we get Claudio to narrate every video on Pinkbike?

 "That wasn't an orgasm back there, that was just pure fear!" Hahahaha
  • + 59
 Undoubtedly one of the best videos of the year.
  • + 1
 That was exactly what I was thinking! Big Grin
  • + 54
 I want him to commentate my wedding, maybe part of the honeymoon
  • + 57
 "That wasn't an orgasm back there, that was just pure fear!" doesn't quite sound right for honeymoon Wink
  • + 31
 Sounds alright to me

 Claudio's POV previews are the best thing to happen to UCI DH since the ban of skin suits. Seriously.
  • + 1
 This should be the best thing to happen to UCI DH...

 ''we're getting close to the finish...and we have to because i f@ckin' tired!!!''
  • + 20
 What, why was there no " Ahhh !! There is a cat on the trail !!! " clip ??!!
  • + 3
 Which preview was that?! I remember it being the funniest one.
  • + 1
 Also there is one where he sings "I believe I can fly" on a huge double!
  • + 3
 That was in the 2013 Hafjell course preview. I was looking for it too.
  • + 3
 Yeah ^^ "What's the cat doing here?" followed by "That was a fly in my mouth..."
You can't script that. GOLD
  • + 12
 Did anyone see him coming down Red Bull Crashed Ice course! Dude does it all!
  • + 9
 Claudio's course previews are some of the best mountain biking videos out there. World class courses, pure sound and no music, pro-level speeds and skill, and he sounds like he's having more fun than I've ever seen anyone have. Plus, none of them have a minute long intro featuring slow motion rocks and puddles.
  • + 11
 Watching Cladio is better then the actual race!
  • + 11
 Wait.......where am I going?
  • + 6
 GOTT-DAMMIT, I LOVE this guy, his energy, and his passion for the sport. Every course preview is a gift. =) This is why they should let Warner be himself in the announcer's box: high-energy, unpredictability, and passion mixed with a bit of humor are the characteristics that will draw more viewers in... not a milquetoast robot that sounds like a lobotomized golf announcer...

Does anyone have the tally of how many chase-cam riders were killed trying to follow Claudio? I know one guy slammed at Hafjell a few years back...
  • + 8
 Forgot the one where he says "almost hit the deck like a fat lady on a cruise ship"
  • + 16
 Pretty sure that was Warner not Claduio
  • + 5
 Claudio for president!!!!
  • + 3
 He has done a preview for red bull ice cross too. Pretty impressive to see him just bomb into world class courses in different sports.
  • + 3
 i dont blame him for being scared, i be shitting my pants going that fast down such a technical trail!!
  • + 4
 He would get along so well with tippie!!
  • + 4
 Haha, that was fun to watch!!! One of the most entertaining videos lately.

 Claudio and I are the same, well aside for the fact that I'm slow, my style sucks, and my frame has snapped. I could go on and on with the comparisons, but I'll just watch the video again instead.
  • + 3
 Claudio needs his own series!
  • + 3
 "Where is crocodile dundee when you need him!" lol lol
