 Well, this is it. It's going to be a long and depressing winter. Maybe Claudio can do random trail previews to hold us over. Kind of like methadone for PB.
  • 23 4
 True, maybe he could take us down some ski runs to hold all of us over till 2016!

 He's did some course previews for the Red Bull Crashed Ice series last winter. It ain't biking, but at least it's Claudio.

 Preview of Rampage you say?

 I could watch Claudio do a preview of the public toilets in Mexico City but Rampage would be the sh*t.

 Claudio should be given a monthly special on PB, sort of like Just the Tip, showcasing the most Trail Forks trail of the month. His previews are just so much fun.

 Thinks comment was original. Scrolls down. Love Cedric though. Only way this could have been better would be to have Peaty in this run as well.

I hope Remi and Sam are feeling well.

 I went down that trail for the second time the last year and trust me...that trail is steep reaaallyyy steep I don't want to imagine it in wet conditions...

 I just looked it up and it's actually steeper than Val di Sole. I knew it was steep but that's just nuts.

 Finally some decent quality track preview!

 So stoked! The last 3-4 claudio previews would not load the player via mobile.
Just sucks it took 3-4 races to figure it out,...but in time for CG & worlds!

 Red bull sponsor the world cup so it will be back to that player next year.

 Redbull videos usually have its youtube version uploaded also. Can't see why they can't do that for Claudio's preview next year.

 This has my vote for the best course preview thus far!!

"He knows all the french lines...."

 "...hope it's not too wet in there."

That's what he/she never said.

 That is one sick.. long.. steep.. course............ and CG just cruised it, no predictions, just gonna sit back and enjoy :-)
  • 13 2
 Awesome course preview as always but I wish he would stick to the full size gopro rather than the session, the colour depth and general appearance of the footage with the session is so much worse.
  • 4 3
 it was cloudy.

 To be honest ,whatever he was using there I felt gave a much greater sense if speed than his other ones.

 Such a bitter sweet moment. Always love seeing Claudios course previews but it's sad there won't be anymore again until next year. We'll be waiting for you Claudio!!

 Claudio and Cedric as wild card entries this week please, who else could think about playmates while shredding a gnarly DH track? Awesome as usual!!

 And I'm here... Seating at work... With no possibility to turn the sound on... Most frustrating feeling ever...

 Claudio how do you chat and shred and chat at the same time? I realized just how long the course was when Claudio finished the Playgirl/Cedric joke.
It does look amazing though with a mix of everything from fun gap jumps, g-out corners and steepness.
My predictions are Wyn Masters #1, Rachel Atherton #2, and Eddie Masters #3.
These course previews are great, they just need a gimbal to send them to the next level.

 Brutal track, that last gnarly section when the riders are already exhausted because of how long the thing is... carnage.
  • 3 0
 When it's that steep in POV, I assume that's in real life it's just a freefall....
  • 1 0
 Is it just me or is the first 2/3 of the track really "boring" and dare I say bike park like? They could have scrapped the stupid bridge sections and just started when it got steeper (CG sections).

 CG and Claudio! Made my Day! Nice work, Lads!

 Anyone know what Gracia is up to these days? Because as far as I know he's not even racing EWS this season, correct me if I'm wrong...
  • 2 0
 He's been racing selective EWS events. He was definitely in Whistler for the EWS, I think Rotorua as well as France?
  • 1 0
 Alright, but why not the entire EWS season? He doesn't appear to be injured or anything and after seeing this video, he clearly still knows how to pin it! Also: Is it just me or did anyone else particularly enjoy this video because Gracia stayed close to Claudio? What I mean is that you get a much better sense of the "gnarly-ness" of the course when you can see another rider.

 Now that's what i call a downhill track!

 Anyone else think the need to ditch the chest cam and stick with just the helmet cam?
  • 15 0
 And what is with the view back at Claudio? Its a COURSE preview....why would anyone want to look back at the rider?
  • 6 3
 chest cam shows bike work/movement better

 Ditch the GoPro, use a Sony ActionCam... muuuuuch better image stabilization
  • 2 0
 I'll admit I get a bit queazy when it switches to the chesty cam... You get a better view of the trail, but just barely with how shaky it is.

 Best video of the year. I agree that Claudio was fast today. Way to go!!! I was waiting for one of those bad ass Gracia no-handers or mustache moves. Timeless style.
  • 2 0
 I know it's been said many times before, but: 1. Claudio can really ride a bike fast 2. His course previews are epic.
  • 1 0
 isn't that jump at the end too short? Or is it just the camera angle.
Was just thinking about Ratboy, not that he overshoots it again.
